How important is pool colour?
Colour is always going to be an incredibly important part of designing a pool and fitting it to your backyard. Our customers often come to us with a pool colour in mind, and as a result, sometimes choose their colour before they choose their pool. Colour can be as strong of a factor as pool model when it comes to influencing the overall design. Some clients will want to design a pool that is the standout feature of their backyard, whereas others are seeking a tone that will seamlessly blend with its surroundings. Knowing that it’s a priority for our clients, we ensure that we have a diverse range of colours available and introduce new options when we see the opportunity to do so.
What pool colours would you recommend?
When it comes to pool colours the choice is really down to the pool’s surroundings. While blue’s are consistently the most popular choice, unique colour choices can also make for the most stunning results – it’s all about the setting and environment. Our recommendation is that any colour in our range can produce incredible outcomes, and this is only amplified by complementary factors such as paving, landscaping and location.
If you’re looking for something new, vibrant and refreshing, Argyle Blue is the latest addition to the Crystalite ColourGuard range. Its sparkling shimmer will make any size and style of pool impossible not to jump into on a hot summer’s day.
Argyle Blue is the perfect complement to the best-selling Twilight and Horizon finishes and is sure to become a popular choice among pool buyers.
What type of styles can different colours provide?
Choice of pool colour can be a way for the owner to give their pool a personality and dictate the look that the pool provides to their home.
A colour like Hamptons Blue can be used to give your pool a coastal resort feel with inviting light blue water.
Twilight, the most popular colour in our range, will make your pool the centrepiece of your home with its deep blue tone. Standing out amongst its surroundings, Twilight is reminiscent of the Mediterranean Sea and is the ideal choice for larger pools. It will really pop when matched with lighter finishes.
Compare these blues with the Black Coral pool below, which gives off a mesmerizingly stormy look and has amazing reflective qualities, almost turning the pool into a piece of mirror art.
What do you need to consider when choosing a colour for your pool?
Trees, greenery, paving and the sky can all significantly impact the colour of your pool. Darker pools enhance the reflective qualities of the water while lighter colour pools look bigger in smaller areas as they blend in and create an illusion of space.
How do you know if a certain colour will work for your pool and backyard?
Seek advice from your pool installer, they have seen a lot of pools and will have the experience necessary to guide you through the selection process. During a site visit with your local pool company is a good opportunity to discuss design.
