Limestone paver is a right choice if you want your home to have a timeless elegant appeal. It is a durable natural stone that can withstand the harsh test of time. Just look at the pyramid of Egypt and Lincoln Memorial, those two famous structures are made of limestone and they have been around for hundreds of years. If you are considering material for your outdoor landscape, limestone paving is your best choice.
Aside from being durable, limestone is a beautiful stone. Unlike other natural stone that comes with a limited assortment of colors, limestone paver comes in various colors and shades. Most likely, there is a limestone color available that would suit your need and taste. It comes in wide variety of pastel shades, from grays to tans to various shades of blue. You can also have it in black. There are also different shades of browns and yellows due to its high iron oxide contents. Because it comes in so many colors and shade, each limestone paver is unique.
Here are some variety of limestone colors and shades commonly available in the market.

When choosing a right color of limestone paver to beautify your home, I recommend that you look at the actual sample rather than just looking at the digital image in the computer because the digital image is not always 100% accurate. Using limestone in your home is ideal if you want to have a rustic and natural ambiance.
For those who are not familiar with limestone, they are quite different from granite or processed tiles. Since they natural stone, the variance in color is not the same as the next. Each piece of the paver will probably have different shades and have different streaking, veining, and speckling from the rest of the pieces. If you are aiming for a natural look, then limestone paver will be your best pick.
