OUR TOP IDEAS FOR YOUR DRIVEWAY’S SHAPE & STYLE
Unlike other driveway types, if you decide on pattern imprinted concrete, you’ll be able to have any shape of driveway you like. The only limit is your imagination. The concrete can be poured in almost any shape you want – we just lay out the design and pour it in! This is one of the big benefits of pattern imprinted concrete.
You could have a straight, square or rectangular driveway to sit nicely in front of your house. Or you might want to create a sweeping curve to have a circular driveway leading up to the entrance. You could decide on having a wavy edge to add extra decorative features or a meandering path.
MULTIPLE OPTIONS FOR DRIVEWAY BORDERS & EDGES
With pattern imprinted concrete, we can easily create the exact borders you’d like, or install some beautiful edges to your driveway. There are lots of ideas to choose from. Jagged edges add a strong look, whilst block edges are a good option to define a boundary. You can even use borders to create different sections.
The great things about printed concrete is choosing a different pattern and colour to make a border really stand out. You might have a contrasting border running around the edge, whilst lines printed with a new pattern in the middle of a driveway separate different areas for parking and walking. You could even choose to stain parts of the driveway to create a picture frame effect!
DON’T FORGET YOUR CHOICE OF COLOURS AND PATTERNS TOO
As well as all the different driveway ideas you see here, if you choose pattern imprinted concrete for your new driveway, you’ll also get to choose from an extensive range of colours and patterns too! How will you design your new drive?
THE BEST IDEAS TO ENHANCE YOUR DRIVEWAY FURTHER
We have lots of ways to personalise and enhance your new driveway too, adding features that look great and which can be really useful.
Build new steps up to your front door or down to your garden
Pattern imprinted concrete is a great option for creating some beautiful looking steps, and you can add patterns to the edges in any way you want. They can be curved, straight or completely circular, and you could even have flowers beds included in them!
Raise flower beds around the driveway
Some people might worry that a large block of concrete on your driveway can look boring and unattractive. But as well as colours and patterns, we have lots of ideas for adding raised flowers beds around the border and even in the middle of a new drive.
Extend a pathway, patio or paved front garden
Because pattern imprinted concrete can be poured into any shape, it’s really easy to add a long pathway down the side of your house in the same, or a complementing style. And there are lots of options for a new patio or a paved over front garden too.
Add features and styles for your personal use
Whichever way you want to customise your driveway, you can. We’ll just help you decide the best options for you. You might want to include a curved area for a planted tree or some pot plants. Maybe you’d like to include a stylish compass image? Whatever driveway ideas you have in mind, we can help.
WHAT ELSE SHOULD YOU THINK ABOUT WITH A NEW DRIVEWAY?
A new driveway or patio gives you the chance to think about any extra features you’d really like for your property too, like new fencing or a new lawn. But here are some other ideas you could also consider:
SECURITY: You might want a new driveway designed and laid to provide a safe, secure place for parking – complete with gates and bollards. It’s a great way to have a private, professional looking parking space.
LIGHTING: Safety at night can also be important, and a well-lit driveway makes parking, unloading the car, and generally moving about in front of the house a lot easier. Why not install floor level lighting, or concrete around some period lamp posts?
BIN STORAGE: No-one likes looking at bins, but finding a place to hide them away can be a nightmare. With a new driveway, you could section off an area, include a separate pattern and colour, and install tidy fencing to cordon off bins!

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT DRIVEWAY IDEAS FOR YOU
Once you’ve had a look through the many options for a new driveway, and know what pattern imprinted concrete is, the next step is to personalise your ideas to your home. With a design in mind, you’ll want to finalise your colour and pattern choice.
Every house is different, and some ideas might not be quite right for the style of your home. But space permitting, we can generally create any kind of driveway you would like!
We can come out and visit you, conducting a completely free survey of your existing driveway in Manchester, Liverpool, Halifax, Preston or anywhere in between. Our designer will then sit with you and talk about your ideas, and you can discuss what would work and look great, and what other features you might like.
You’ll then get a fully designed driveway, mocked up how it would look in front of your home, for you to sign off on.
