Options for the Right Finishing Touches for Your Concrete Swimming Pool

Mar 7, 2017

An in-ground concrete swimming pool can look as casual or as elaborate as you wish it to depending on the type of finishing touches you select to install to enhance its appearance. While certain elements are for the interior of the pool, others are for the surrounding area to increase its attractiveness and ambiance. In the following information, we provide you with a number of options to complete your swimming pool of concrete in a complementary fashion.

Various Finishes for the Interior of the Pool

While you can select just plain concrete or gunite for the interior area of your pool, there are more exciting options available on the market today, including the following:

  • Bali stone tiles
  • Sukabumi green quartzite tile
  • Aggregate
  • Mosaic tiles
  • Glass tiles
  • White or coloured plaster

Each type of finish has its own unique characteristics and appearance. You can install all one colour or mix various shades in a design of your choice. Some pool owners select to place their initials in the centre of their pool while others may try to replicate the pebbly bottom of the stream just for two examples. The possibilities for designs almost are limitless.

Decking Choices

Your choices for decking include poured concrete, concrete pavers, stone tiles or sections and timber options. Keep in mind that certain options may require periodic sealing to retain their ideal appearance and condition.

Additional Water Features

Another way to complete your pool in an eye-catching manner is by adding other water features such as waterfalls, fountains and bubblers. The extra sight and sound of water increase the relaxing atmosphere beyond what the pool does on its own.

Greenery, Flowers and Possibly Boulders

Plant greenery and flowers around the pool area to provide a true oasis feeling to the area. Be careful to include only those species that can hold up to the chemicals in the pool water since people will inevitably splash some on the plants. Depending upon the style of your pool, you also may wish to add boulders to create a mountainous or rugged ambiance.

Decorative Safety Fencing

While the local authorities typically require safety fencing around a pool, this does not mean that it has to be plain and unattractive. On the market today, you will discover decorative choices that protect kids and pets from unknowingly entering the pool while adding ambiance to the area.
