Flagstones are a very popular paving material in the UK, for patios and paths in particular. Highly customisable, attractive, and diverse, they can be great paving option, but how can you turn them into a feature?

There are many property features that can add substantial value to a property, from having a good energy rating to having the perfect parking spot. Features make a property unique, they can tell a story, and draw the eye.

So, how can you answer the question of ‘how can I turn my flagstones into a focal feature for my home?’

Here are our top five tips for turning your old flagstones into a brand-new property feature:

Tip One: Carefully Consider Your Flagstone Type

There are many different types of flagstone, each with different aesthetics and different properties. Your choice of flagstone will have a big impact on the overall design and your potential of creating that ‘wow’ factor.

The right choice of flagstone will also help to partially prevent the common problem of flagstones cracking, getting damaged when exposed to harsh weather, and becoming a slipping hazard.

For a flagstone focal feature, you need to make sure that your flagstones are fit for purpose!

There is no rule that says you can’t use more than one type of flagstone in your paving; in fact, mixing it up and incorporating a few types is a great way to create a unique design that reflects the style of your home

Tip Two: Think Outside of the Box with Your Designs

Flagstone paving can very quickly become monotonous if it’s not carefully designed and creatively used.

You can incorporate flagstones into all manner of projects from stunning firepits, to stairs, walkways, and even pool surrounds!

Tip Three: Mix and Match with Different Colours of Flagstone

There is no rule that says you can’t use more than one type of flagstone in your paving; in fact, mixing it up and incorporating a few types is a great way to create a unique design that reflects the style of your home.

Flagstones can easily be used like mosaics, giving you full control over just how you want the finished project to look.

If you’re trying to create a true feature out of your flagstones, then creating a running theme is one of the best ways to do it. Linking patios to paths and feature areas is a great way to achieve a consistent look

Tip Four: Keep Those Flagstones Clean!

Flagstones are not well-known for coping well under extreme weathers, or for dirt resistance.

A clean flagstone will look completely different to a dirty one, so it’s important to make sure that they shine!

Top Five: Create a Running Theme Throughout Your Home

With a resin bound surface, like a path, patio or driveway, you won’t have any problem with cracking or the surface starting to look dull over time. Resin stays looking fantastic for years, and with less traffic on the flagstones, you can keep them looking amazing at the same time

Make the Ultimate Statement with a Resin Bound Surface!

Just as flagstones can be a feature alone, they also work well when broken up with other surfacing materials. Using a more suitable material for paving and leaving the flagstones solely as a decorative feature is a great way to make a statement.

Flagstones and resin are a match made in heaven when it comes to creating an eye-catching design that is also incredibly practical.
