Your patio is an extension of your home. It can be a sanctuary at the end of a long day, a place for the family to gather for meals or fun, or the perfect backdrop for elegant entertaining. When it comes to your patio, nothing determines the overall look of your patio, like the paver pattern you choose. Pavers are stylish and trendy. It’s no wonder that there are so many patterns available to create an inviting outdoor space that is both sophisticated and contemporary. The difference your paver pattern makes to your patio area can be transformative. Let’s go over 5 of the most popular paver designs that are commonly used when constructing patios in Omaha.

1. Basketweave

Much like an actual woven basket, a basketweave design gives the illusion that the bricks run behind each other and continue on the other side. Basketweave is composed of pavers that are configured in a rectangular shape to form grids. Those grids can face in different directions, depending on how you want them to look. Basketweave is popular because of its versatility - it can be as simple or elaborate as you desire. The best part is you can choose from an unlimited number of variations to add your own personal touch.

2. Herringbone

The herringbone pattern can be dated back to the Roman Empire. Yet, its sleek and mesmerizing design continues to be an exceptional choice for outdoor patios to this day. Rectangular pavers can be aligned either diagonally or at a 90-degree angle, depending on your preference to form patterns that either look like arrows or the letter L. You can up the wow factor by alternating the colors of your pavers as well.

Colored borders can be added to your pavers to make your pattern standout even more!

3. Running bond
