Travertine Pool Deck
A travertine pool deck is one of the hottest trends in pool decking. As a luxury material, its durability and other qualities make it an ideal choice.
- It stays cool to the touch, making it easy on bare feet.
- It absorbs water, making it virtually slip-free.
- It resists damage due to the freeze-thaw cycle.
Other natural stone options to consider for your pool deck include Bluestone, Flagstone, Sandstone, Slate, and others. A natural stone pool deck will cost more than the other options, but the beauty and durability may be worth it.
Pool Deck Tile
Porcelain pool deck tile is a high-end alternative to natural stone for your pool decking. Durable, slip-resistant, and cool to walk on, porcelain tile comes in a wide array of styles and colors designed to mimic natural stone.
Pool Deck Pavers
Pool deck pavers are a cost-effective alternative to natural stone. Concrete pavers are designed to look like natural stone with various colors, textures, shapes, and sizes. Patio slabs suitable for the pool deck are increasingly popular, as you can choose one material to go from the pool’s edge to your back door. Belgard has quite a few beautiful yet functional options.
Concrete Pool Deck
Concrete is still an option for a pool deck. Rather than plain gray, most homeowners opt for stained, stamped concrete if they opt for a budget pool deck. While decorative concrete doesn’t exude the feel of luxury, it can be a cost-effective and durable option.
Your pool design team can discuss the pros and cons of each of these pool deck options with you to help you reach a decision. Which material you choose will depend on your pool, aesthetics, and budget.
