3 Ways to Upgrade Your Pool with Concrete

Posted by | Pool Renovations | No Comments

Your pool is an escape; it offers you the luxury of a vacation spot at your home. It is natural that you want a way to make your pool the deluxe getaway of your dreams. It doesn’t take an incredible amount of money and expensive materials to make that happen, nor does it take a lot of time and work. In fact, all you may need to enhance the appeal of your little backyard oasis is some relatively small changes. You may be amazed at the beautiful result of small changes, like the following three, when you upgrade your pool with concrete.

Raised Concrete Platform

Relax in the sun, or under some type of constructed shade, with a perfect view of all the beauty of the water. Keep an eye on the children in the water, sit with feet in the water and have conversations with people below you in the water, and more. A raised concrete platform offers you all this. It can be as simple, or as complex as you want in terms of color, style, and size. Even a small, simple platform can make a significant difference in your pool’s stylish appearance.

Swim-Up Bar or Table

Even a small place for people to swim up and have a drink, or take a bite can make your pool area seem even more classy. You could have a overhanging bar, or semi-circular “table” extending from the pool’s side and out into the water so that people can swim up to the edge, or float up in floating seats, and relax while eating and drinking in the comfort of the pool. Again, stamped and stained concrete is perfect for an addition like this.

Infinity Pool

You don’t have to be incredibly wealthy, or stay at a fancy hotel to have a pool with an infinity edge. If you have a slope near your pool, you can create the infinity illusion with a pool wall stopping at the top edge of that slope. It could be far easier to create that glamorous, luxurious style than you think.

Update Your Pool Deck Before Summer

Posted by | Pool Renovations, Uncategorized | No Comments

It’s still cool, even cold in much of the U.S. However, the weather is slowly warming. Soon it will be spring, and then summer. It all seems to come quickly when we’re busy with our lives. This means that swimming weather will soon be upon us, as will weather comfortable enough for enjoying your outdoor deck. Don’t wait for that weather to be in full swing. Update your pool deck before summer has a chance to start.

Pool Deck Upgrading

If you already have a pool deck, take a look at it. How old is it? When was the last time you had it cleaned, sealed, and any other maintenance? There are a lot of choices when it comes to your pool deck. You’re never stuck with what you have, even if you’re worried about price.

Stamped and Stained Concrete

Stamped and stained concrete make beautiful pool decks. As a material, concrete is one of the strongest things you can buy. It will last for years with very little maintenance. And, it can have virtually any appearance you want; this is not your standard sidewalk concrete.

Rather, this concrete can be stamped and molded to look like much more expensive materials. It can look like stone, brick, and more. It can be stained with natural-looking colors, or with gorgeous colors for a more creative design.

You don’t have to worry about water causing slips and falls, either. These decks are sealed to protect against the elements, including the sun, rain, and more, and have texture and anti-slippage coverage to help eliminate that risk. They’re safe for you, your children, and your guests.

Get your dream pool deck for summer, and even for spring. Be ready as soon as warm weather hits. Just call Stamped Artistry.

Choosing a Deck for Your New Pool

Posted by | Pool Renovations | No Comments

As summer begins, many people have time at the pool on their minds. In some places, pools are already open and ready for swimmers and sunbathers. If you’re a homeowner and love fun in the sun, you might be ready to invest in an inground pool, or in the midst of planning one. Among the decisions you’ll have to make is what material to use for your pool deck and surrounding area.

You want the area around your pool to be both functional and attractive; it should suit your personal style preferences, be durable, and safe. So, as you plan, consider concrete. Concrete has the potential to be beautiful, with enough color and style options to fit anyone’s needs. It is also durable and capable of lasting through years in the sun and water, handling regular foot traffic, and managing slippage.

Decorative concrete, like stamped concrete, can be shaped in creative ways for interesting and beautiful patterns all around your pool. You have a variety of colors, as well as textures and patterns. If you want the benefits of concrete, but the appearance of a more expensive stone, concrete can do it. You can have the look of natural stone, brick, and more. If you want to mix and match, you can do that, too; you can have one color and style framing the larger area, which may be a completely different style.

Of course, reliability and safety are key components, too. Concrete is tough; it can withstand years of water and sun. When made according to your design preferences, it can be sealed with extra protection, including anti-slip defense.

Build the pool of your dreams for this summer and the summers to come. Contact us at Stamped Artistry and ask us more about just how perfect concrete could be for your new pool’s deck.

Pool-deckSwimming pools add touches of extra fun and beauty to homes. You and your children find hours of fun together, or you may enjoy relaxing in the water, or out of it. Yet, over time even the nicest pool could use a renovation.

You don’t have to have a pool like every other in the neighborhood. There are many possibilities for its appearance. Pool renovation with stamped concrete is just one example. Colorful stamped concrete has the potential to be a beautiful addition to your pool area. In addition to being decorative, it is lasting and doesn’t require a lot of maintenance.

Stamped concrete can handle the outdoor elements and time, as well as chlorinated pool water. Of course, slipping is always a concern around the pool, particularly for parents. You can easily get some traction by having nonskid elements added to mixes and sealants.

You also have many options for design, which isn’t always so with other materials. Stamped concrete can come in many colors and textures. With some help, you can design patterns and shapes, choose from stains and pigments, and get creative. A contrasting pool border adds some originality to a design. You can have light colors that help prevent the area from becoming too hot in the sun, or darker shades to match your aesthetic preferences. Extend the stamped concrete by adding some steps, or a path to a nearby small seating area so that the adults can sit out near the pool and enjoy the sun while the kids play in the water.

Have you been considering updating your pool area? It’s still early in the year, but summer will be here before you know it. Try pool renovation with stamped concrete. Call us at Stamped Artistry and tell us about your dream swimming pool, and let us help you make it come true.
