When most people think of creating a space using pavers, they think of making a back patio or a walkway. However, pavers can actually be used inside your home, too. They can be used to make a very interesting and functional entry to the house. This area is sometimes called the foyer and includes the space right inside your door. In some homes, this area is well-defined, while it others, it may not be a separate room. However, these homes often define the entryway by using different flooring in the space. Instead of tile or other flooring, though, you could put down pavers! Here are a few ways to make this space look amazing.
Extend Your Exterior Landing
If the landing or front patio of your home is made from pavers, you could use those same pavers for your entry. This creates an interesting flow between the spaces. From the inside looking out, it seems that your living space flows right out the front door. It gives you a very unified look. If you have a sunroom or other space on the back of your home that connects to your back patio, you could do this there, too.
Make a Pattern
This is one of the best places to get creative with your pavers. You can create patterns, mix and match different colors, and really get creative. When you build a paver patio, you have a large space where you get to determine the size of the space. In your entryway, that space is much more defined. This definition can actually help with the overall design because you know the exact space you’re working with. Use that to your advantage to plan out a unique pattern.
Even if you’re not creating a complicated pattern, you can still do something simple. For example, you could lay rectangular pavers in a herringbone pattern to give the space a distinct look.
