If you are in the market for a new patio you may be debating what type of patio paver to use, and what pattern you’d like it layed in. Patios provide a unique opportunity to express your sense of style using the pattern of the pavers.

Before you choose the right patio pavers for your home, let’s take a look at the different kinds that you can invest in.

A pattern of bricks for a patio

Types of Patterns

Traditional patio patterns include running bond and basket weave. The running bond pattern is when bricks are laid in straight lines all going in one direction. This is an easy, classic pattern that you can’t go wrong with. A basket weave pattern is where bricks are laid in pairs against one another in a perpendicular fashion, thus creating the appearance of a basket.

In addition to these two patterns, herringbone has become increasingly popular in recent years. A herringbone pattern is made up of bricks that are laid in a chevron pattern to create a unique look.

In contrast to brick pavers larger patio pavers provide more opportunity for more complicated patterns. Asymmetrical pavers create an abstract pattern and can give the appearance of the natural world. These pavers can be man made or natural stone. Asymmetrical pavers can be harder to lay because of their irregular shapes, but this isn’t a big deal for a professional team.


When trying to decide what type of patio pattern is right for your house it is important to think about what the style of your home is. If you have a very rustic and natural looking home asymmetric, natural stone pavers may be a great option for you.

These types of pavers make the transition from inside to the great outdoors seamless. For a more traditional home, a running bond brick pattern will fit in nicely with the overall aesthetic you already have going on. More contemporary homes may benefit from a herringbone pattern. At the end of the day, it all comes down to your exterior design and using the right materials to elevate its aesthetic.
