With so many pool colours to choose from, selecting the perfect pool colour for your backyard can be a tricky process. Clients often begin by asking to see the most popular pool colours when visiting our swimming pool display centres. Yet, like most trends, what is popular today may not be popular tomorrow. For this reason we encourage our clients to consider a number of important factors when choosing a pool colour.
Look and Feel
Before you begin to think about pool colour, first consider the look and feel you would like to create in your backyard. Are you after a tropical oasis, a Tuscan haven, a natural lagoon, or a modern chic outdoor space? Be sure to consider the style and exterior tones of your home. The theme of your backyard will begin to guide you towards a colour palette to work from.
The Pool Colour
Depending on the size of your swimming pool, your backyard design may feature your swimming pool as the centerpiece in its design. Like any centerpiece, it should compliment the desired look and feel whilst adding the ‘wow’ factor to the overall design.
Factors to be considered when choosing a pool colour include your backyard theme, pool surrounds, water reflection and water temperature, just to name a few. To ensure the process of choosing a pool colour is as simple yet enjoyable as possible, I’d encourage you to use the table below as a reference point when selecting the right pool colour for your swimming pool.
Don’t forget to consider how slippery your pool surrounds may become when wet. Perhaps consider a textured pool surround. And finally, we have found that dark pool surrounds can attract heat and retain heat in the surface, which may become uncomfortable to walk on during a hot summer’s day.
We find by keeping a few simple factors in mind when choosing your pool colour, you will be able to achieve the desired look and feel in your backyard in little to no time at all!
