Hot, dry Playa del Rey summers and year-round warm weather make pool ownership almost a necessity. However, it is challenging to get creative ideas for your Pasadena area pool when everyone has one. Read on for some unique pool deck design ideas to help your yard stand out from the neighborhood!
Unique Pool Deck Design Ideas
1. Indoor Outdoor Spaces
When designing your yard, it is good to think about the functionality of your living spaces. Can you bring the outdoors inside with you and some of the indoors outside? You can still enjoy the variety by creating indoor-outdoor living spaces in place of a traditional deck. Expansive windows or exterior sliding wall systems can give you a functional year-round, all-weather space to enjoy your pool area. It also means you can include more plush, comfy furnishings than you would for an outdoor space!
2. Live it Up on the Lawn
If you want a greener outdoor space, consider putting grass around your pool instead of a deck. You can arrange pavers to achieve a neat feel, but the grass makes you feel like you are in the luscious tropics. Plus, grass is both soft and cool underfoot, perfect for lounging on the side of the pool on a hot day or for protecting your kiddos’ feet from some hot pavement.
3. Use Natural Materials
Take a break from the traditional concrete or pavement pool deck and use natural materials. Try to incorporate colors and textures from the surrounding nature to make your pool feel like an oasis. Laying wooden slats around the pool area is a unique way to create a more rustic, nature-inspired aesthetic.
4. Sleek and Seamless
Infinity pools are all the rage in hotel and resort design, so why not try incorporating that into your pool deck? Smooth lines and a lack of edges and outlines can make a pool feel like a seamless addition to a space. Eliminate outlines and barriers to entry by using tile or paved concrete at one level up to the pool edge. Your yard will feel like a getaway, and you will eliminate tripping hazards!
