Strength under the sun
A poolside environment is demanding; it faces exposure to salt, chlorine, and heavy foot traffic. Therefore, the chosen pool paving must be durable and capable of withstanding the rigors of frequent use and the placement of furniture. Quality pavers ensure that your pool area remains pristine and beautiful for years to come.

Symphony of tones
When curating your poolside oasis, think of it as a symphony where color tones play a vital role. Consider how the hues of your pool pavers blend with the natural elements, the materials used in your garden, and the surrounding foliage. If you're combining materials like timber decking and stone, choose pavers with complementary colors to create a seamless transition between these different surfaces. Additionally, ensure the stone's appearance harmonizes with the architectural style of your outdoor space.

Play of textures
The surface finish of your pool pavers should be a top priority. Opt for a non-slip finish to ensure safety and prevent accidents. For instance, a sawn finish like Bluestone is a fantastic choice, as it maintains its traction even when wet, in contrast to a honed paver, which becomes slippery when damp.
Also consider how the pavers will feel underfoot on a scorching summer day. Every material heats up when exposed to the sun, but different stones have varying heat retention properties. If your pool area is bathed in sunlight, selecting lighter, denser pavers is a smart move. Moreover, remember that the color of the stone influences glare, with lighter stones having a more reflective quality.
