Home Living : March 8th 2011
6 HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, March 8, 2011 Pavers get bigger » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING The popularity of the stylish large- format paver is not about to suffer a crash any time soon. In fact, Australians' preferences are evolving to a softer colour palette in keeping with what is architecturally desirable in landscaping and house design. According to Boral product manager Mark Dell, Australian homeowners and landscape designers are responsible for a second evolution of the very popular large-format paver. Starting at a hefty 400x400mm, large-format pavers stretch to the maxi 600x400mm. With the trend in large-format pavers beginning around 12 years ago, the latest transformation features the fine- tuning of textures and colours. There has been a steady trend away from earlier rustic textures and strong colours, such as dark brown and ochre. Today's pavers feature barely-there finishes and neutral colours to create clean, simplified lines for uncluttered outdoor areas. Mr Dell said the borders, trims and feature pieces in paving have long gone, giving way to single-colour schemes for entire outdoor areas. ''It's really about taking the indoors to the outside -- inside we see clean lines, light-coloured, large-format floor tiles and this extends all the way out in a smooth, uninterrupted motion.'' In keeping with uncluttered designs, paver laying patterns have also been simplified with only one or two patterns -- stacked and stretcher being the most popular. The large-format pavers are easy to lay, and need only four to six pavers per square metre of ground.
