Now that you have the house of your dreams, and the kids have the pool they were begging for, you’re ready to invite friends and family over for some outdoor fun. With a grill, permanent seating, and stylish softscaping, your pool patio can be the outdoor space that everyone loves. Unilock offers Akron, Ohio, homeowners the products necessary to make this a reality. Here are five ideas that for revamping your pool area:
Consider adding a stylish and durable grill island to your pool area to make it a gathering spot for cooking and dining. Lineo Dimensional Stone is ideal for constructing a grill island with a dining bar attached! Add some bar stools for impromptu drinks and snacks with friends, or expand further for a covered patio area for informal lunches and dinners. Since chlorine and pool salts won’t damage the finish, and EasyClean Stain Resistance makes clean-ups easy after cooking, Umbriano pavers are ideal for providing a long-lasting surface for your pool deck and outdoor kitchen.
As the kids splash in the pool later in the evening, light the Rivercrest Wall fire pit for a warm glow over the whole pool area. Break out the marshmallows to roast, and relax near the fire with a special drink. For added ambience consider having Unilock Sandstone installed as a richly textured and characterful patio floor paver.

Construct a Rivercrest Wall low wall to match your fire pit and have Ledgestone coping added for extra seating, or to hold large colorful planters for adding color to the area. Later, you can have the kids lay their towels out to dry over the wall by the heat of the fire.
As the day fades into dusk, low lighting around your pool area can create an intimate feel. Lights can be added under the coping of low walls to illuminate the pool deck and extend pool time well into the night. Consider coping such as Brussels Fullnose and Fullnose Edger for your low walls and pool edge. The tumbled character of Brussels Fullnose is ideal for adding character to your pool area, while the rounded lip it provides is an ideal overhang for concealing wall-lighting. Spotlights backlighting trees and plants in your landscape can add a romantic and cozy atmosphere, and twinkle lights in the trees will make everything glitter.
Richly textured concrete pavers with a safe, non-slip surface, can make a dramatic statement for your poolside surrounds. Whether you choose to create randomized laying patterns with Stonehenge pavers and Copthorne accents, a more ordered, or modern look with Artline pavers and Series accents, Unilock has the resources for you!
