Back in the day, this building material was used to better travelling conditions between towns, providing a sturdier surface than that of old dirt roads.
Fast forward centuries and cobbles are still high on everyone’s list of favorite products. Available in a range of colours, styles and sizes to suit almost any design style, cobbles were built with strength and beauty in mind.
Here are a few ways to incorporate cobbles and add to the appeal of your abode this festive season.
Bring the outdoors in with a courtyard that not only adds to the aesthetic of you home, but also encourages ventilation and cools the space it’s housed in. The benefits of using cobbles are that you can use a mix stone shapes and sizes to create a uniquely layered look while clearly differentiating it from the rest of your home.
A great option for your driveway, the installation of cobblestone is inexpensive, and they come in neutral tones that are sure to complement the overall look of your home. Combine a slim design with a distinctive surface texture and you’ve got yourself a classically-styled entrance that’s sure to impress visitors. .
Beautifully constructed flowerbeds have the ability to transform your garden into a haven. They divide up your lawn to create focal points and prevent any damage to your nurtured rose bushes. Cobblestone is then a great choice as it perfectly defines garden bed edges with the thinner side facing the lawn and the thicker side towards the bed.
It may have been used to build roads way back when but now, cobblestone can be used for walls as well. Combine them to create unique patterns, opt for a more uniform approach, and/or choose a range with gently rounded edges to create a flow throughout. Either way, it’s an easy way to elevate an area of your home whether inside or out.
So, besides stability and functionality – cobblestone is a great option for when you’re looking to breathe new life into your home.
The right contractor can help advise on which range is best depending on what you’re looking to achieve. Referrals are good when it comes to this as you can see what you’re in for and draw inspiration from past projects.
