A Modern Look
For modern pool designs, clean lines and subtle color palettes bring a contemporary feel that’s easy to accent. If your pool is a classic rectangular shape, you can highlight this simple shape and transform your pool into a modern marvel. Umbriano is a sleek paver that comes in a range of sizes, including a large format rectangle that you can use in a running bond laying pattern for classic appeal, or as part of the random bundle for geometric interest. Made with Enduracolor and ColorFusion Technology, the surface of Umbriano is composed of fine aggregates that evenly disperse color for a vivid finish. Summer Wheat is a beige color that contrasts well with any surrounding landscape and stands out with accent pavers like Copthorne. The polished look of this paver is sure to give your regular rectangular pool a resort-like aesthetic.
Pools that are round or oblong have lines that mesh well with a softer look. A tumbled paver like Brussels Block has that look, and the smaller format lets the shape of your pool be the star of the show. Brussels Fullnose and Fullnose Edger have rounded edges to complement your design. Continue this look into the surrounding landscaping walls to provide casual seating that comes in handy for large-scale entertaining. You could even add water features to your design, like a large scupper that delivers the gentle ambience of water cascading into your pool.
