2. Choose The Pool Surface Pattern
There are variety of building materials for swimming pool covering, including porcelain tile, mosaic tiles, glass, stone, concrete, etc. Different materials will create different pool types. Choosing stone pavers is natural and prevailing for your pool, while people uncommonly use stone to cover all the pool areas, stone is mostly used for pool decks, pool surround and waterfall areas.

For pool bottoms and walls, people prefer to use blue or green porcelain tile to build a ocean-like space. Porcelain tile is popular due to its durable quality and low-water-absorption rate. Mosaic tiles are also a top use in private pool, for mosaic tile provide wide range of choices in materials, shapes, colors and textures. Homeowner even can customize mosaic art for unique pool look. With small chip size, there are many gaps to make your pool less slippery and be safer for your family.
3. Choose Pool Color
The pool color will make great difference on your pool look as well as pool water color. Blue and green is common to see in pool. Lighter color creates a bright look, while dark color can add depth to pool space, it depends on what you want.

Have you already feel tired of traditional rectangle-shape pool? So you can choose the shape you like and fit your budget. Just design it and take your existing landscape and buildings into consideration. In angular area, rectangle pool is a great choice.

The right dimension means right space for your pool. That means, you should firstly consider the available space for your pool construction, which helps to decide the pool design and size, and you don’t have to redo pool design and waste materials you bought. If the space is big enough, you can also have pool deck, patio, spa, tub and any structures.
