This design is called stacked bond or jack-on-jack. It features bricks stacked in even rows and columns. Its simple straight lines can make a smaller space seem larger, and works well for contemporary spaces.
Herringbone is the most formal pattern and has been a traditional staple for centuries. With its zigs and zags, it works well to cover irregular areas.
The running bond pattern is simple, versatile, and popular for patios and paths. Pavers can be set at slight angles to create a curve. Running bond is well suited to covering small areas.
For casual, cottagelike design, try the basket-weave pattern. The bricks are laid horizontally and vertically in "tile" pairs. This pattern can be easily incorporated into another design, or used alone.
