What Are The Most Conventional Uses For Granite Pavers?

Have you fallen in love with the look and feel of granite pavers? If so, you might be wondering how you can incorporate them into your home and lifestyle – are there particular areas or applications that they are better suited to? Fortunately, there are a number of ways that you can use granite around your property – we have outlined some of the more common ones below:

  • Paving
    Granite can be used in a variety of outdoor paving projects, from patios and alfresco areas through to pathways and garden bed surrounds. Many homeowners tend to use it in all of these areas to create a sense of continuity in their landscape design. The pavers are incredibly durable and able to withstand weathering quite well.
     
  • Pool Coping
    Many homeowners are surprised to learn that granite is suitable for use as pool coping and edging. In actual fact, it provides a non-slip surface that can help to improve the safety of your swimming pool area. It is able to withstand exposure to salt water and pool chemicals, as well as provide quite an attractive and luxurious swimming environment.
     
  • Driveways
    As granite pavers are incredibly hard and durable, they are also suitable for use in driveways and other areas that may see regular vehicular traffic. The extreme pressure exerted by vehicles, both moving and stationary, can cause damage to softer materials, which is why natural stone is often chosen for such applications.
     
  • Wall Cladding
    From feature walls to the façade of your home, granite can also be used in various internal and external wall cladding applications. No matter the size of your project – from covering your entire house to decorating some pillars at the front door – these pavers are sure to give you the luxurious edge you desire. Opt for a neat, tiled look or a random “crazy” paved one.
     
  • Flooring
    Another indoor use, granite is also a popular choice for flooring and is a fantastic alternative to other forms of tiling. It will provide more warmth than ceramic tiles, offers quite the luxurious look and is very suited to the wet areas of the home – as such, it has become a popular choice for bathrooms, kitchens and laundries of all shapes and sizes.

Keep in mind that these are not the only uses for granite pavers but they are, however, the most popular.
