Show guests the door!A driveway leads you through a garden space. No matter how big or small the garden, it’s a journey. On that journey we appreciate the plantings and views to the house. The driveway itself should be simple, with richer detail kept for the point of arrival. This is a subtle way of indicating where the front door is and creating a welcome for guests – or just a ‘welcome home’. Here, the change of flooring materials also creates a transition and a foil for the house. In design principles, the transition between inside and outside is one of the most important, as it’s a place where we linger and observe the detail. The simple lines and seating here create an attractive and welcoming space to spend a few moments.What you think of these driveway design ideas? Share your thoughts in the Comments below.
