Read on to see how great pathway pavers can boost your curb appeal.

Cost Appeal

This is especially helpful when it comes time to resale your home. If a buyer approaches a home with broken and cracked pathways in front of the home, they will immediately think of lowering their offers.

When there is substantial work to do in terms of driveways or general yard work, they will calculate that into their repair monetary allotment and retract that from the offer.

Having pavers that are neat and laid down professionally will give a fresh, organized appearance to your home. It will let your buyers focus on the rest of the home instead of immediately trying to figure out yard repair costs before entering the front door.

This will help buyers because it will look already finished. They won’t immediately see the money they have to put into it.

Beauty

A home with fresh driveway pavers will add major aesthetic appeal to your home. If what leads up to your house is a pathway that’s well-maintained and curated, it will make the home look more expensive and attractive.

Pulling in to a beautiful driveway and walking on a pathway that’s been cared for can create a relaxing atmosphere at the end of a long work day. Keep your pathways beautiful and clean, it will add beauty to your entire lot and home.

If there are parts of the exterior of your home that you aren’t pleased with and don’t have the money to fix yet, consider upping the ante for your driveway and pathways to add the wow factor to your home for a fraction of the cost.

Design

People are drawn to homes that look modern and new. Driveway pavers can give a modern look to even a dated home. Regardless of when your home was built, new pavers can immediately add a modern design to the front of your home.

With updated design, you will increase your curb appeal which can get you a higher return on your investment in the home.

Personality

Is your home lacking a little personality? When most of us already have fairly mundane day to day routines, it can get a little tiresome leaving and returning to and from a home with little to no personality.

Driveway pavers can add a pop of appeal and a bit of personality to your home and your yard. Use bright colored pavers in modern tones and shades. Consider having them positioned in herringbone or houndstooth patterns on your pathways or in your driveway pavers.

Substance

A home owner who takes the time to care for the details of a home like the pathways will help create a more substantial look for their house. Creating an intriguing, tangible, solid presence with pavers will greatly up your curb appeal.

However, the happiest of homes don’t just look good- they also feel good. Having a home with pathways that support the way you live is important. Adding substance to your home with luxurious looking pavers will enrich your day to day living experience and quality of life.

Safety

For starters, it is actually the law that home owners must repair cracks, potholes, and uneven pavement in and around their home. You may even receive a notice from the city based on the condition of your walks.

Broken or cracked driveways can be harmful to you and your family members. It can also create potential problems for guests visiting your home. Especially if you there are women who wear heels who reside in the home.

Getting a heel caught in the cracks or tripping on broken sections during winter months can create harmful falls for anyone crossing those pathways. Eliminating potential falls with new driveway pavers will also eliminate future trips to the hospital for broken bones or sprained ankles.

Photographs Better with Driveway Pavers

Whether you are an Instagram fanatic and love design, or you are trying to sell your home with a stellar listing on Zillow, great photos of your home are important.

Taking pride in where you live and updating your driveway pavers and pathways will create a great set-up for photos of your home. The initial photos on most Zillow listings are of the exterior of a home.

The exterior of a home is what draws initial buyers and passer-bys to a house. Having professional photos taken of your home with updated walkways and driveways will not only get you more offers for curb appeal, it’ll draw more traffic to your home in general.

A Home with Healthy Pathways

Driveway pavers can eliminate safety hazards, update your design, give your home some textural substance, and add beauty to your home.

Healthy pathways without cracks and broken roadways will also eliminate the possibility of mold, mushrooms, and other weeds from growing within them. Wild weeds and plants growing between cement blocks or through driveways will only create more problems for you as the roots grow and break your pathways further.
