An integral part of pool design is the type of concrete pool deck you choose. It can be difficult to find the best fit for your pool and your lifestyle. Below are our top tips to finding the best concrete pool deck.
Complement the surroundings
A concrete pool deck doesn’t have to match surrounding patios exactly, but the material should at least complement your space to create a cohesive look. For example, if you have a brick patio and choose a smooth concrete, it might create a mismatched effect. If your patio is stone, a similar type of stone surrounding the concrete pool deck could look more pulled together in terms of design.
Think about utility
When we say utility, we mean the function. One of the biggest gripes of certain concrete pool decks? They can be slippery when wet. Keep this in mind when choosing the design for your concrete pool deck. Usually, if going for a stone or tile look, smaller pieces can make the surface less slippery. You also want to think about the texture you choose. More texture can mean more grip! If you carry that rougher texture to the pool’s side, it might be uncomfortable to sit on when you’re on the pool’s edge. Consider your priorities when choosing the material and design for your concrete pool deck.
