One of the important design decisions you’ll have to make when you put in a pool is what kind of custom pool deck is best for you. There are several things to keep in mind. First of all is safety. It’s important that the material you choose for your custom pool deck doesn’t get too slippery when it’s wet, for instance. Another important safety consideration is that the material not absorb too much heat. You don’t want your bare feet getting burned when you get out of the pool. You should also think about the feel of whatever deck material you choose on bare feet.
There are lots of options for the material for your custom pool deck. Pavers and tiles are becoming increasingly popular and cost effective. With so many colors, shapes, and sizes, you can create almost any look for your poolscape. A strong geometric pattern looks modern and formal, while red clay tiles create a more relaxed feel of an Italian villa.
If you have an older home or brick is an important architectural element, a smooth brick pool deck can be a good choice. A spray-on coating can be a good choice to update an older custom pool deck. It’s sprayed on an existing pool deck and gives a textured and colored surface, which results in lower surface temperatures and easy maintenance.
