Pool Deck Ideas

Thinking about adding a deck to your pool? Then you'll need some ideas!

The pool deck can serve many purposes in your backyard design and will be a focal point for many years to come. With outdoor living becoming more popular year after year, the pool is fast becoming the place where friends and family gather as well as having a source of entertainment for everyone.

When building a deck, the options are endless. From stone to tile, it’s hard to know where to start when picking your exterior decking. Here are some pool deck ideas to complete your backyard oasis.

Cool It Down with Stone

A pool deck is not complete without a stunning stone finish. Stone will instantly make your pool look like it’s been there forever and comes in an array of shapes, sizes, hues and finishes to compliment your personal style.

If you like something more contemporary, then concrete pavers might be the solution as they come in many different colours and designs that will enhance your poolside space.

Not only does stone make great outdoor surfaces but they are very easy on the eyes!

Make It Tropical with Tile

Tile pool decks are a great solution if you want something more contemporary to fit your style. This option will also add some value to your home should you ever choose to sell in the future.

The best part about building your pool deck is that there are so many options on the market today, from small mosaic tiles perfect for lining the edge of your pool and walkways, to larger format tiles that can almost look like wood (but without the upkeep).

And if you’re up for making a big splash, then consider installing an in-ground or above ground pool insert using glass tiles that create stunning effects when hit by light from above. No matter what kind of tile finish you choose, you can’t go wrong with tile pool decking.

Keep It Classic with Pavers

Pavers are one of the oldest and most popular options when it comes to building a new paver stone patio or walkway. There is something timeless about this type of look that makes any home feel like a resort getaway!

Pavers have seen many changes over the years and now come in so many different shapes, sizes and colours that there is sure to be something for everyone's taste. Consider giving your backyard oasis some style by adding a paver deck to your pool.

After looking at the many different options in the market, a paver stone pool deck will be chosen for it’s classic look that will never go out of style and adds value to your home if you ever decide to sell. As well, there are many different designs and colours available which means no two pavers have to be alike!

Decorative Concrete

Decorative concrete is a wonderful choice if you're looking for a very simple and modern look.

This type of exterior flooring can be used for drives, patios and walkways as well as pool decks. Decorative concrete comes in many shapes and sizes that mimic popular stone products as well as wood and therefore offers the best of all worlds - elegance, beauty and functionality!

And with so many different colours available, it’s easy to find one that compliments your home's exterior perfectly.

Adding pool decking in your landscape design will be a decision you won't regret. Decide which style suits your taste and budget best and follow through with everything to create the masterpiece of a pool deck that you've always wanted for your home!

Wood and Composite Deck Ideas

If you need pool decking that is more natural, then wood or composite are the ideal choice. This kind of pool deck will make your pool look like every movie director's dream!

Wood pool decks have stood the test of time as one of the most popular types of pool deck for homeowners across North America, especially in Atlanta. And with new improvements in technology, like water-proof sealant and UV protectors, wood has become stronger and less expensive to purchase. Meaning affordability shouldn’t be an issue when it comes to having a wooden deck around your pool!

Composite pool decks also come in a variety of colours giving homeowners more options to choose from when deciding on their exterior design. This material can be made into almost any design that you can dream up giving you the freedom to personalize your pool deck any way you like.

As well, neither of these materials need constant upkeep unlike concrete or tile decks which means less work for you!

Ideas for the finishing touches

Once you've decided on what material is best suited for your new pool deck, don't forget about other elements that will round off its look! There's no limit on creativity if you want to add more to the look of your luxury deck.

Here are a few ideas to enhance your backyard paradise:

- pool steps

- light up trees around edge of pool

- lighting fixtures under water (LED lights or glass balls)

- outdoor bar area or furniture for entertaining

- pool-side music and entertainment system
