Top 5 Driveway Design Considerations

Having a beautiful driveway can add a lot of beauty and value to your home. Check out our Top 5 things to think about with your driveway.

Complement Your Home

A Bloom paver driveway enhances the curb appeal and value of your home and reflects your pride of ownership.

Size Matters

The minimum width for a single car driveway is 12 feet. For a double car garage, plan a minimum of 20 feet. The minimum length of driveway in order to park a car is 22 feet. Add 22 feet for each additional car you wish to park. If your driveway abuts a wall, slope or garden, add 4 feet to the width so that passengers in the car can comfortably open their doors and exit.


Consider how guests will get from your driveway to your front door. When adding a walkway that joins your driveway at the front of the house, the optimal “mouth” is 16 feet so that the car door isn’t too far from the walkway, 12 feet is the minimum. 

Four Season Considerations

Think about where you will pile snow in winter and be sure to choose a paver that can withstand de-icing salts. Consider permeable pavers to reduce rainwater runoff and decrease ice accumulation in winter.  This applicable to our customers in Newport News, Wiliamsburg, Richmond, James City County, Toano, Virginia areas only.
