Pool Pavers Perth
What better way to enjoy Perth's iconic weather than with a swimming pool in the backyard? If you're installing a pool, there are many decisions to be made. One of them is the flooring surrounding your pool. It will make up a large portion of your pool area, so it not only needs to look good but be safe and sturdy too. You can choose from a variety of materials, but a popular one is paving. Its strong, durable and appealing to the eye. The quality of your pool area flooring can be the difference between a great looking pool and a not so good looking pool, so it's important to get it right.
Paving doesn't have to be limited to your pool area either, you can use it to create extra elements such as bench seats, pathways and water features. By using the same paving for your outdoor areas as your pool area, you can create a cohesive space that looks well thought and harmonious.
Deciding which pavers are best will depend on several factors including the colour of your pool, your budget and the amount of sunlight and shade that your pool area will see during a standard day.
While the perfect paver varies from person to person, there are some factors you should factor in before making your choice.
Choosing a material that is slippery for around the pool is an accident waiting to happen. Many paving options have an exfoliated surface which offers maximum grip. The good news is even though the surface is exfoliated, they remain gentle on feet and feel smooth and comfortable to walk on. These kinds of pavers maintain their non-slip qualities regardless of how wet they get which can provide peace of mind, especially if you have children who like to play around the pool.
The colour of your pavers
When you think of a pavers colour, you may think it's all about aesthetics however, the colour can play a key role in the comfortability of your pool area. The sun and heat can be relentless here in Perth, and the truth is pool pavers can get hot. It's best to avoid dark paving around your pool if it is in full sun for most of the day. They will heat up and can burn the feet while walking on them. Darker paving is usually only recommended for swimming pools that have moderate to full shade for most of the day. Lighter coloured paving tends to be much cooler.
Pavers designed to withstand Perth's harsh climate
Perths weather can be harsh and your pavers need to be able to endure the unrelenting sun, exposure to chlorinated pool water, and high use without the risk of cracking or deteriorating. Concrete and stone pavers are both suitable choices for this reason.
