18 Jan 2023

Looking for a new driveway or patio in 2023? Firstly, it’s always a good idea to have some inspiration on what you want your driveway or patio to look like. However, if you’re unsure where to start, then this article is made for you. At Cobblecrete, we’ve been installing driveways and patios for the last 30 years. With so much experience, you could say we’re full of design ideas to help you get started on your new driveway or patio. Keep on reading to get inspired!

1) Try Patterned Imprinted Concrete

The installation of patterned imprinted concrete begins with a suitable sub-base laid down and then a layer of concrete is poured on top. Next, your handpicked colour is applied. While the concrete is still wet, a chosen pattern is imprinted onto the concrete to create your desired look. 

With a pattern imprinted concrete driveway or patio, it offers you a highly detailed design and it can complement the existing exterior design of your home. You can mirror the illusion of a natural material such as stone, cobbles, brick, slate or tile at a fraction of the cost. 

2) Add Colour And Interest

Installing a coloured concrete driveway or patio adds a boost of colour and interest to your home. Unlike a standard grey driveway that can look plain and dull, a coloured concrete driveway or patio adds a brightening effect as well as adding vibrancy, this can make your property stand out from your neighbours. Pick from a variety of colours from buff and red, to charcoal and grey. Alternatively, we mix different colours to create a truly unique shade.

3) Different Patio Shapes

Along with the pattern and colour of concrete, the shape of your new patio is another factor to consider. You might have limited space to work with, or your property is located on a sloped area. If you’re struggling for inspiration, here are some types and shapes of patios to suit any home:

Square or Rectangle

If you’re looking for a traditional and functional design, a square or rectangle shaped patio is chosen by homeowners who have unlimited space or those who enjoy hosting large gatherings. A large rectangular-shaped patio can be used as an outdoor entertainment space or as a dining area.


For the more modern home, give your garden a smooth circular design. You can attach your patterned patio to just outside your patio doors or install it elsewhere in your garden as a centrepiece. Round patios are popular to use as outdoor dining and seating areas or to surround a garden fire pit.


If you don’t fancy a square or round-shaped patio, you can opt for a bespoke design tailored to your home and garden. Your new patio can be designed in any custom shape with smooth curves or unique angles. Freestyling your patio with curved edges will offer a softer and better transition from grass to concrete and vice versa. This option is also suitable for homeowners who have a smaller garden who want to enhance their outside space.
