Creating a patio with modern flair can set a hardscape apart from those of surrounding Harrisburg, PA, neighbors. A modern patio relies as much on the pavers underfoot as it does on lighting and furniture selections. Contemporary designs tend to be sleek, clean, and well put-together. Here are a few Unilock pavers that fit this criteria and pair spectacularly with modern designs.
Treo pavers successfully emulate the luxury and elegance of natural flagstone. Their calming surfaces are ideally suited to almost any outdoor room and can be incorporated into both sleek kitchens and cozier firesides. The selection of versatile neutrals in which these pavers are available further enlarge the variety of hardscapes with which they are compatible. While New York Blend is a great candidate for outdoor kitchens, the lighter Sierra option pairs stunningly with cool blue pools. As an added bonus, Treo pavers are non-slip and can ensure your safety at the poolside.
Beacon Hill Smooth
These smooth pavers can instantly add a touch of luxury to a patio or poolside. Pavers in warm colors, like Tuscany or Desert Valley, pair beautifully with greenery and form a good transition between the hardscape and softscape.
Mattoni pavers have slim, linear designs that take a modern twist on classic Roman brick. Their slightly rugged edges have a natural appearance and add character to the surface. These pavers come in a powerful color variation called Dark Charcoal, which can be used to create eye-catching contrasts. The Cocoa Brown and distressed Sable Blend variations blend well with the neutral color palettes that govern modern design. In fact, every shade in which Mattoni pavers are available are mutually compatible and complement the darks and brights found in nature.
Promenade Plank pavers have long, linear formats that are not only elegant, but can also make spaces appear longer, or wider. They are incredibly versatile, owing to the four different finishes in which they are available. Pavers with different finishes can be used together to create a multi-dimensional paved surface. Allow these pavers to form the transition between the hardscape and softscape, for strong contrasts in shape and texture.
Umbriano pavers emulate the luxury of natural granite. Their natural appearance is enhanced by their unpredictable variations in color. Each paver subscribes to the same color palette, but it is showcased in a unique gradient. These pavers are available in soothing shades, like Summer Wheat, which really ‘pops’ when paired with a clear-blue pool or vibrant greenery. With perfectly uniform edges, these pavers can create large grids that echo the geometry found in modern landscapes.
Senzo pavers are clean-cut and uniform - everything one would expect from a sleek, modern paver. However, they bear unpredictable gradients on their surfaces that create one-of-a-kind driveways and patios. These gradients also add interest to large surfaces that might otherwise appear monotonous, creating unpredictable areas of dark and light color. The Nuvola variation transitions between various shades of grey while the Castano option contains rich brown hues instead.
