Concrete pavers are useful for more than just outdoor projects like patios, pool decks, and driveways. Many contemporary architects and designers have discovered that concrete pavers also work exceptionally well inside a home or office space, as well as for creating transitional spaces, both inside and outside the home. Peacock Pavers replicates the look of natural stone in both exterior and interior design, interior-exterior transitions, and other transition spaces throughout the home.
What Are Transition Spaces?
In architectural design, transitional spaces are built environments that create a transition between two other main areas. In commercial places like office buildings, a transition space might be the hallway between the main lobby and the internal offices. But in residential architecture, transition spaces generally include rooms or spaces transitioning between exterior and interior spaces (e.g., mudrooms, verandas), or between main sections within the home itself (e.g., a hallway between the living room and bedrooms, or a stairway between floors).
Choosing the right look for a transitional space is a key part of the design process as flow and connection between two or more spaces must be created without disrupting the overall aesthetic. Concrete pavers are ideal for these types of spaces because they are easily adaptive to both exterior and interior applications.
