One essential addition to any home is a driveway. It looks great from the street, but it is also very practical as well. Increasingly, more and more homeowners have 2 or more cars in the family and as well as needing somewhere to park them, they need somewhere that is safe. Even insurance companies offer a reduction in your car insurance if you are able to park your car on a private drive. It is also easier and safer for your family to disembark from the car on a private driveway, as getting out of the car on a public road may lead to getting struck by another car.
You will see some of the best driveways in West Cornwall and there are a number of different ones all around the area. Here are some examples of types of driveways currently available to choose from.
- Concrete driveways are very popular and you can have just a plain design which is smooth and clean, or you can get the concrete imprinted, so that it appears to have tiles, stones or other patterns. Colour can also be added to give it a more authentic look.
- An asphalt driveway is also common, but it holds some advantages over a concrete one. It looks amazing in its jet black colour and is quite inexpensive to put down.
- Brick or block paving is a driveway choice that is becoming more and more popular throughout the UK. Most newer homes will have it installed and it adds colour and sophistication to the outside of any home.
Whatever your final choice is, a driveway is a very wise investment for any home. It’s up to you now to pick one.
