Hence, to help you make the optimum investment, here are a few factors to consider when opting for Concrete Paving Blocks and Tiles in Nepal:
Whether you are inspired by the timeless classical aesthetic of Patan’s ancient pavings, a chiseled Italian Villa in a mafia movie, or colorful Victorian villas over Pinterest, you will surely find a type of Concrete Paver that matches your style. So, if you are after a specific aesthetic, make sure to explore the product catalog by weighing in the products’ pictures and comparing them with the picture in your head. Always view the pictures, patterns, and colors with maximum attentiveness!
A few examples of aesthetics and the type of tiles or blocks you could opt for:
Nature Friendly: Asian Grass Paver – allows natural grass to grow around and recharge the groundwater table

Concrete Tiles can be used in a multitude of places: private driveways, backyard patios, public areas, poolside, decorative accents. The coverage and frequency of use range from huge parking lots with countless vehicles passing every day to small decorative backdrops of an indoor fireplace. Therefore, where the tiles are being used is a must to factor in.
Based on where and what the tiles are being used for, the load factor and structural capabilities of each type need to be considered. For example, for reinforced boundary walls, Asian Hollow Blocks are ideal due to their sturdiness, while, Asian Behaton I would be good for parking lots and driveways with more vehicular activities. Meanwhile, although Asian Italia would be excellent for walkways and garden areas, it would not be the best for driveways.
Remember to always check the Load Factor and Where to be used suggestions of the products!
When choosing landscaping pavers and tiles for any location, not only the load factor and strength but also the safety element could make it or break it. It is necessary to make sure that the paving blocks would not be hazardous in any situation that they may encounter.
Unlike ceramic tiles, concrete tiles are generally slip-proof which is one of the major benefits of these pavers. But for the pool deck and other areas with greater water presence you can ensure greater safety by picking textured tiles Asian Fusion tiles and Asian Italia. Similarly, for driveways and elevated areas, skid-proof tiles. Not just the texture, but also the pattern in which the tiles are arranged can contribute to making sure that the slippery aspect is completely avoided. This is where the wide range of customizable textures and patterns of Concrete Tiles work best.
Furthermore, to ensure safety for all, especially in pedestrian-friendly areas and footpaths, Asian Tactiles could prove to be exceptionally favorable for road safety for differently-abled people. Pavements with Tactile use numerous specific patterns and dots to specify directions, and provide warnings to visualize the scene for the visually impaired. Guiding a wheelchair is also made safer by this technique. These blind-friendly and wheelchair-friendly tiles with detectable warnings are an active effort towards making roads accessible for all.
Safety and welfare should never be compromised in any type of construction!
Concrete tiles are one of the most cost-effective construction materials. Not only are they low-cost but also last for years and years proving to be a profitable long-term investment. They are also easy to clean and cost considerably low to maintain. So, the overall cost would be very reasonable.
But when calculating the overall cost, do not forget to factor in the costs of labor and installing the pavers and tiles in place. An easy and secure fix can be achieved quickly with the asian pavers, so labor days would not be immensely long. If possible, look for a professional with plausible referrals.
