The weather is finally getting warmer. We’ve had quite a long winter this year! Everyone is getting anxious to open their pools. A lot of times I see beautiful pools using a plain grey concrete pool deck. Sometimes people just don’t know how they want the deck to look, or maybe the pool installation was a huge expense and they decided to wait and finish the deck the following year. No matter the reason, there are several different ways to decorate your concrete pool deck.
There are a few things to consider when determining the best finish for your pool deck. First, you probably don’t want to stain the pool deck a dark color because the concrete will absorb more summer heat therefore making hot feet!
Are you adults that entertain? Engraved your Pool Deck with patterns such as:
- Custom Decorative Concrete Rug (great way to tie two outdoor areas together)
- Engrave a path around the pool using a flagstone pattern
- Tile-Cut Concrete
- Engrave your Concrete to look like Limestone or Slate
Stand out with decorative concrete that gives your pool deck a more finished look. Randomly staining the engraved stones with different colors can really bring a plain concrete pool deck to a new life.
Are you a whimsical kid at heart or expanding your family?
- Marine Life engraved into your concrete? Fish
- Plants and Flowers
Is there a beautiful quotation you love? How about a little reminder to “Live Laugh and Love”, etched into your concrete. Your pool can be fun and entertaining, or calm and relaxing, whichever fits you, your family and lifestyle… Until next time…
