A driveway adds a lot of aesthetic value to your home . If you are planning to improve the value of your house, then you may want to use a portion of your budget for some driveway improvements.
Here are a few options for materials you can consider for driveway improvements.
Brick and Paver Driveways
If your décor is European or more on the traditional side, you can consider creating a brick driveway. Though the process is tedious, it will add a considerable amount to the value of the property. You can arrange the bricks is different patterns to suit your taste. You can also use different colored bricks to create a multi-colored design.
Grass Honeycomb Driveway
Patches of grass in a honeycomb or checkerboard pattern will help the driveway look beautiful, especially during the spring. One disadvantage of a grass driveway is that it needs a lot of maintenance to look good and fresh. Watering will become necessary to keep your driveway alive.
Stained Concrete Driveway
Using plain concrete can cause your driveway to look like a stone slab. Staining will add some dimension to the driveway. You can pick your own pattern and use colors to match the house or your outdoor design.
This will work well for almost any design theme, but is most suited for traditional, old fashioned décor styles. You can either buy new stones for your driveway, or purchase recycled ones.
