How to Choose the Right Color for Your Pool Finish

Did you know that pool finishes are one of the most overlooked features of a pool? Sure, waterfalls and tanning ledges are great and all (okay, they’re actually pretty awesome!), but the pool finish is just as important, if not more, for your swimming pool.

Think about it – a pool finish will not only make the surface of your pool more durable, but it will also add a sense of style and luxury to your space. These high-end coating installations will help keep your pool in tip-top shape for years to come. But remember, you also have to pick the right color for your swimming pool finish. Here’s how you can:

1.    Take a look at your surroundings – Believe it or not, your pool’s surroundings will affect the color and how it looks. Choosing the color can make or break your pool depending on the surroundings. For example, if there are trees with a lot of foliage around the pool, it’ll affect how the water looks. Using a finish that would usually look vibrant blue will now appear aquamarine because of the pool’s green surroundings.

2.    Take size and depth into consideration – If you have a larger and deeper pool, the color of the pool finish is going to look darker, and if you have a smaller and more shallow pool, the color will look lighter. It’s important to take that into consideration when you’re choosing the color of your aquatic finish.

3.    See how much sunlight it gets – The amount of sunlight your pool gets will affect the color of your pool. If your pool is in a place that receives a ton of sunlight, the color is going to look intense and vibrant. On the other hand, if your pool is in a shady spot, the color will remain consistent throughout the day. If it’s a mix of both, you’ll want to find a color that will look good in the shade and sun.
