Concrete pavers create a modern pool design
A stunning contemporary designed space by Secret Gardens of Sydney
This stunning garden from Secret Gardens of Sydney utilises architectural concrete pavers (in a Sky colour) to create a contemporary pool design. The timber cladding adds warmth to the facade of the home whilst the modern concrete paving adds a stylish and modern edge. We love the timber used throughout the entertaining areas and pool walkway, it’s soft underfoot and really connects the poolside space with the surrounding landscape.
Your swimming pool design starts here
If you’re looking for the right swimming pool design, you’ll need to consider aesthetic objectives: what will fit with the overall landscape design? What other natural materials will be present in the landscape? You also need to consider functional objectives – is the product suitable for a saltwater pool? Does the paver’s texture provide a non-slip surface? There are certain criteria that can affect product selection so it’s always best to discuss these with your swimming pool designer or swimming pool builder early on. For example, some sandstones may not be suitable for a saltwater pool or some pool designs may require custom product sizing.
When it comes to swimming pool tile design and choosing the appropriate pool paving products, a key consideration is the coping around the pool. ‘Coping’ refers to the product, which creates the edge around the pool, joining it with the surrounding paving or landscaped area. Depending on the Eco paving stone selected, there are a number of coping options available in a variety of styles from the traditional round bullnose to rebated coping or even square edge coping for a cleaner modern look.
The best place to start is by collecting or pinning pool ideas and images that you like. That way when you have your first conversation with a swimming pool builder or swimming pool designer, you’ve got a place to start.
