Do you have a period property or just a outdoor space you’d like to inject some quintessential English charm into? If so then you’ll need some cottage style paving options to help create your vision. These paving lines have been hand selected by our team for their character and ability to create that cottage feel outside.
If you’re trying to achieve that traditional cottage look then you’ll most likely be looking at natural stone paving options. Nothing gives you the variation that natural stone paving does with it’s unique textures and changes in colour from slab to slab. Most old sections of paving in the UK were created with natural stone so if you’re trying to create a heritage feel it makes total sense to mimic this. We’ve picked out some sandstone and limestone paving options that we stock in this piece that could help you create that heritage vibe.
Want something cottagey looking but want as little maintenance as possible? Fear not, we have the perfect solution to this problem. You don’t have to rule out porcelain paving- our Exbury range has been created to give our clients much of the character and variation of stone but with the low maintenance and colour control advantages of high quality porcelain paving. With it’s wonderfully textured surface and edges this is a porcelain tile that can fool you into believing it’s stone – a real head turner and a paving design that can fit in almost anywhere.
Another lovely design hint to help you create that traditional cottage feel is to use setts or cobbles in your paving scheme. Cobbles have been used for literally thousands of years to create paths and streets. When we see a cobbled area we immediately are reminded of historical areas and buildings. You can harness this feeling in your build by edging paving slabs with a complementary paving sett or creating whole paths and driveway entrances from paving cobbles.
