Depending on the shape of the pavers there are six basic patterns that can be used to enhance the appearance of your paving.

Because of the cutting required some of these will add to the waste factor and possibly to the installation cost.

Square shaped pavers can be laid in Straight Bond, Half Bond, Quarter Bond, Diamond Pattern

Rectangular shaped pavers can be laid in Straight Bond, Half Bond, Quarter Bond, Herringbone, Block Random.

The use of a contrasting feature border will also add to the appearance of what might otherwise be a plain of simple pattern and at the same time limit the cutting and additional waste.
