Whether you use it for entertaining, relaxing, or everything in between, a patio is a great multi-use outdoor space. Not only do patios provide additional living space, but they also add value to your home. While plenty of building materials are available for patios, many homeowners opt for pavers. Pavers give you the opportunity to create a wide range of patterns and designs. Take a look at some of the most popular patio paver patterns. 




If you want to stray away from a traditional-looking patio, a circular patio is a great choice. A circular patterned patio is created by laying paver rows in a circular formation. Although the pavers will have small spaces in between, your patio builder will fill them with mortar or sand. Circular patterned patios look best when mixed throughout with other patterns like herringbone, basket weave, or running bond. 



In a Herringbone-patterned patio, the pavers are laid in alternating directions, creating a “v” shape. It’s often used in large to medium-sized patios, and creates a noticeable visual effect. The herringbone pattern is known to provide strength and durability, so this an excellent choice for patios used to entertain or those with a lot of furniture.

Basket Weave 

The basket weave pattern involves placing the paver in pairs and alternating the pairs between vertical and horizontal orientations. The end result is a patio with eye-catching rows and columns. This well-known pattern will bring a vintage look to your backyard. It’s an ideal pattern for homeowners looking to create a historic or vintage-looking yard. 


European Fan

Originating in Europe, this intricate patio pattern is one of the most challenging ones to install. Although it requires skill and time, the European fan pattern is one of the most beautiful patio patterns. It is popular in residential and commercial patio designs. Homeowners can play with colors, paver sizes, and patio sizes when it comes to the European fan design. 


Running Bond

The Running Bond is a classic and versatile patio design that has been popular throughout time. It’s the simplest to lay, easy to install, and uses the least amount of waste compared to other patterns. The Running Bond patio pattern is created by laying pavers side by side, creating illusions with strong lines. The running bond pattern makes your patio look longer or wider, making it an ideal choice for smaller patios.
