Flagstones and cobblestone design trends have evolved over the years to include a variety of new and exciting materials, patterns, and styles. These trends are functional and visually appealing, making them ideal for residential and commercial properties.
One of the main reasons flagstones and cobblestones are so popular is due to how versatile they are, in that they can add a rustic and natural feel to any space while also being able to look sleek and modern – it’s all up to your design inspiration.
The perfect option for finishing driveways, patios, pools and other outdoor spaces whilst incorporating points of interest in your home, garden, or commercial space and not only offer a classic and timeless look but also provide durability and low maintenance.
In this blog we look at a few emerging design trends that can be achieved by using cobbles or pavers:
Large Format Design
Large-format flagstones like our Flamed Granite range can create a contemporary and seamless look, with narrow and minimal grout lines, making them ideal for large areas such as driveways, pools and patios. For that finishing touch, matching bullnoses can be used to beautifully detailed overhanging edges.
Patterns can be used to create a sense of movement and flow in the outdoor space. They can also be used to create a modern and contemporary look, making them ideal for both traditional and modern properties.
Contrasting Colours & Textures
A popular trend in paving design – this can be achieved by using different types of paving products, such as a flagstone and a cobble, or by using different colours, textures and sizes within the same paving product. This creates visual interest and depth, making the outdoor space more inviting and dynamic.
Flagstones and cobblestones are also being used to create outdoor living spaces such as outdoor kitchens, fireplaces, and seating areas. This trend is becoming increasingly popular, as it allows homeowners to extend their living spaces and create a comfortable and functional outdoor area.
As these trends continue to evolve, we can expect to see even more exciting and innovative designs in the future, so if you are thinking about upgrading your home in 2023, chat to the Creative Stone team about the right, cobblestones, flagstones or bullnoses that would be best for your project.
