5 Beautiful Patio Patterns to Consider

October 17, 2016



When purchasing a patio, there are a number of things to take into consideration. One of the more visually important ones to consider is the pattern. The pattern you choose will make a huge impact on the aesthetic appeal of the patio. Since it can be a challenge to decide on which pattern to go with, we have listed the top five for you.

Stretcher Bond

Although stretcher bond patio patterns are among the simplest, they offer a brilliantly elegant look. This is the primary reason why they are among the most commonly opted for patterns as well.

A stretcher bond patio pattern is a single size pattern, which means that only square bricks are used to make them. Instead of arranging the square blocks in perfect rows and columns, you shift the blocks in a way that no two corners meet each other. This pattern is also called an offset single size pattern.

Brick Emphasis

A fairly unique pattern that can be used for your patio is a brick emphasis patio pattern. It involves arranging the rectangular bricks vertically leaving square patches in between. As for these square patches, you can plant them with grass to offset the brick. This pattern of rectangle bricks and highlighted squares will offer a beautiful look to your patio.


This is another single size pattern that uses rectangular blocks instead of square. Since the bricks used are rectangular, you have the freedom to place them vertically or horizontally, or even both interchangeably to allow a unique pattern. While you can use different sizes, it is recommended to stick with 2:1 to create better results aesthetically.

Tudor Pattern

In a Tudor pattern, you can use three different sizes of blocks for your patio. The seemingly irregular patio pattern makes it look even more appealing which is why most people recommend using it.
