Creating a stylish driveway

Here at Gilston Building Services, we offer a wide range of services from roofing and plastering, to brickwork. And one of our most popular services is creating driveways. With an increasing number of homes needing additional space for two or even three cars, driveways need to be practical, as well as attractive. As a result, we have produced this guide to creating a stylish driveway.

Why is the driveway important?

First of all, why is the driveway so important? Well, the driveway is the first thing any potential buyer, passer by, or nosy neighbour will see. And this essentially gives the first impression of your home. If you want to make a good impression, your driveway needs to look the part.

Driveway options

There are a variety of driveway cover options that can help you achieve the desired effect. These include:

  • flagstones
  • paving
  • gravel

Flagstones for your driveway

Laying flagstones to create your driveway can be a effective choice. Flagstones tend to be very attractive in appearance, hence the extra price tag. But this can create a unique, classy, driveway.

Flagstones can also be cut into different shapes and sizes, and arranged in a bespoke way to make your driveway truly stunning.


Paving can also be incredibly attractive and involves laying stones in different ways. With lots of patterns and layout choices available, you can really design a driveway that has personality and character.


Creating a driveway from gravel can be a great option. Gravel is available in all different sizes, shapes and colours, so you can really design something that works for you.
