Different Applications of Natural Stone for Your Poolside Area
Home swimming pools are something we all wished we had growing up in Australia. After all, having one in your own backyard unlocks so many more opportunities to relax and unwind, to exercise, and most importantly, to throw great pool parties.
Building a poolside area from scratch is an exciting opportunity. There are endless possibilities in terms of design, and there are a number of different features you can use to help bring this area to life. We already know that natural stone is great for benchtops, tiles, splashbacks and wall cladding. However, it’s also ideal for use in your poolside area as well.
Check out some of the different applications of natural stone for your poolside area:
Travertine is a hard-wearing and water-repellent natural stone. So, it comes as no surprise to find why this is such a popular material for use in poolside surround applications. Travertine also has a rough, non-slip surface. Of course, this is an extremely important aspect to consider when choosing your poolside decking material; after all, slipping and falling by the pool could be life threatening. Proper poolside safety is important, even more so when you’ve got young children using your swimming pool and surrounds. When designing your poolside area with these concerns in mind, you can ensure to create a fun, safe, visually striking poolside area that both family members and guests will love.
If you want to create a poolside area that really turns heads, then marble is no doubt the perfect material to use. Marble has been closely associated with luxuriousness, class and royalty over the years. Needless to say, by incorporating it into your poolside area, you can hope to create an area that exudes high value and opulence. If you do choose to go for marble, make sure that you opt for a tumbled finish, so that you can ensure a non-slip surface around the pool.
Another great stone material for pool decking is granite, a material known for its superior strength and resistant nature. Although it is available in a range of different tones and patterns, you will generally find most granite materials to be dark in colour. Installing dark granite pool decking is a great idea if you want to make a real statement with your poolside area.
Poolside Wall Cladding
If you prefer wooden decking to natural stone, but still want to incorporate some level of natural stone into your poolside area, then it’s worth looking into stone wall cladding. Stone wall cladding can be achieved using a variety of different natural stone materials. So, no matter whether you’re interested in granite, marble, sandstone or even porcelain sintered stone, you can get just the look you want for your poolside area’s feature wall. A stone wall backdrop behind your pool will help to enrichen your poolside area and add value to your backyard. Aside from this, you can also expect such an investment to stand strong and sturdy over the years, despite constant exposure to the harsh Australian conditions and splashes of pool water.
