How to choose a pool colour
With so many pool colours available, it can be difficult to narrow down your choices.
Often, our clients want to see the most popular options but trends change and what is popular now might not be in a few years time.
When choosing your pool colour, consider how your entire backyard will look when you are finished.
Do you have an overall theme you are trying to achieve? Or a general feeling when you enter the space?
We like to encourage our clients to take a more holistic approach to the decision by considering their overall vision for the entire space, rather than just focussing on the pool itself.
Considering how the entire project will look when complete can give you clues about how to proceed with your pool colour choice.
For example; often contrasting decking and stone options around your pool will create the most impact.
So, if you’re considering a darker pool colour, try lighter pavers, stone or wood around it.
This is also true of a lighter coloured pool. Dark wooden decking, granite and sandstone can make excellent contrasting surrounds for a paler blue pool.
Take a look at the AQUAGUARD® FIBRETECH pool resurfacing colours range used on all our swimming pool renovations in Perth and WA below for some real world examples. If in doubt, you can always ask our friendly team to help match you with the colour that works best for your vision.
Sapphire blue is the most popular colour choice on our menu. Sapphire blue produced the best results in the manufacturers UV testing program and looks great with all types of pool surroundings. The colour is easy to apply and gives a great shimmer in the sunlight. We would certainly recommend Sapphire blue as a colour choice for residential swimming pools as it goes well with all types of paving and aggregates.
This is a very soft blue that gives a nice easy light turquoise colour when filled with water and also gives a nice shimmer in the sunlight.
Great for commercial pool and really pops against darker stone, decking and aggregates.
