3 Tips for Choosing the Right Color for Your Pool Finish

Did you know that one of the most overlooked features of a pool is the finish? Sure, when it comes to designing a pool, we all know that tanning ledges and waterfalls are wonderful, but let’s not forget about the basics! Pool finishes are at least as important for your swimming pool, if not more so.

After all, swimming pool finish will not only make your pool’s surface longer-lasting, but it will also lend a sense of luxury and style to your space. Our high-end coating installations will help keep your swimming pool in amazing shape for years to come. To give your pool the look you’re going for, it is critical to give thought to which color you’ll go with. Check out our tips, courtesy of ecoFINISH®.

  1. Consider the size and depth

If you have a larger pool with a lot of depth, the color of the pool’s finish is going to look darker. On the flip side, the color of a smaller and more shallow swimming pool will look lighter. It’s important to take your pool’s size into consideration as you’re choosing the color for your aquatic finish.

  1. Have a look at the surroundings

As funny as it may sound, your pool’s surroundings will influence how the color of the pool looks. Depending on your surroundings, proper color selection can make or break your pool. For instance, if there are trees with a lot of foliage surrounding the pool, it will have a “green” effect on the water. A pool finish that would otherwise look bright blue will now look aquamarine because of the green surroundings.

  1. Think about sunlight

Just like other surroundings, the amount of sun your pool gets will influence its color. If your pool is in a location with a lot of sunlight, the color is going to look vibrant and intense. If your pool is in a shadier area, the color will stay consistent throughout the day. Make sure that the color you choose will look good considering the sunlight it will be getting.
