Need help choosing a patio stone colour

Hi All,

I'm a new home owner and want to update the front and side of the house with patio stones. We've decided to go with Armtec's Brooklin Inversa stones but want to get your input on the stone colour. Our house brick colour is an orangy/brownish/beige tone (see photo attached). We've narrowed down our colour choices to 3 (chestnut blend tumbled, colonial blend tumbled, and pewter blend tumbled). Please see the colours in the photo. Your input would be greatly appreciated

Thank you.

Tumbled Colonial. This should match the stone on your house the best.

I agree with the above post on the Tumbled Colonial.. its good practice to compliment the trim and roof too!!!!, I would use Brussels Sandstone (white) for a sailor course and Heritage Brown or Charleston color through unilock for the soldier course through unilock...Belgard supplies some nice Brown colors too
heres a link to the sandstone.

and heres a link to the heritage brown and charleston form unilock

Holland Premier? | Unilock

Flagstone is one of the best materials for porches principally because of its tight pressed joints that permit water to pervade as opposed to running off. patios also have a very natural, organic look due to their shape and earthy shades of browns, reds, grays and blues. The most well-known sorts of flagstone utilized for clearing porches are sandstone, slate and limestone.

Advantages of a Flagstone Patio:

1. Normal look
2. Solid
3. Can be laid dry for a porous surface
4. Greenery, grass or a strong ground cover can be developed between the stones
5. Rich shading with natural variety
