Choosing the Right Colour For Your Pool

11 January

There are many ways to make your swimming pool look more stylish. You may add a waterfall, a tanning ledge or some warm lights. These three features add a touch of class to your pool and backyard. One of the most overlooked features of a pool is its finish, the colour of the pool. A pool finish does not only make the surface of your pool durable, but it also adds a sense of style. Our High-performance finishes help keep your pool looking great all year round.

Part of the high-performance finish is the cosmetic layer, the colour. It’s important to select the right colour for your pool. Selecting the perfect colour for your pool can be challenging. Just like most trends, what is popular today may not be popular tomorrow. Considering this, you should take into account several factors when choosing your preferred colour.

Look at your Pool’s Surroundings

Your pool’s surroundings may affect the pool’s colour and overall appearance. For example, if your pool is surrounded by trees with a lot of foliage, the dominant green colour can affect how the water looks. In this case, choosing a finish that looks a vibrant shade of blue will appear aquamarine due to the pool’s green surroundings.

You might want to consider matching your pool colour with your home’s exterior design or general palette. However, if you want your pool to stand out from your home’s exterior design, you may pick a colour that is bright or one that creates a nice contrast.

Consider Your Pool’s Size and Depth

If your pool is wide and deep, the colour of your pool finish will look darker. Darker coloured pools tend to have a defined line that surrounds it, which is great if you want your pool to have sleek lines that show a clear reflection of your surroundings. On the other hand, if your pool is small and shallow, your pool colour will look lighter. Light coloured pools tend to look larger in smaller areas as they create an illusion of space.

Amount of Sunlight

When deciding on your pool’s colour, notice how much sunlight it gets. The amount of sunlight your pool receives also affects how you perceive the hues and shades. If your pool is situated in an area that receives a lot of sunlight, the colour is going to look vibrant and intense. In contrast, if your pool is in a shaded area, its colour looks the same no matter the time of day.

If your pool, however, is situated in both a shaded and sunny area, you might want to consider a colour that will be complementary with both conditions. If you are unsure about which option is best for your pool, don’t hesitate to contact us here at Guardian Pools.
