When summer fades to fall, your poolside area doesn’t have to be neglected. In fact, the months of inactivity it’s about to experience create the perfect window for a quick renovation. One of the best ways to make your pool look brand new is by replacing the pavers that frame it. New pavers revitalize the space without reshaping the pool or changing any other permanent structures. Consider opting for some of the following pavers and coping options to renew your poolside space.
Brussels Fullnose Coping
This pool edge showcases Brussels Fullnose Coping in the rosy Tuscany color variation. This coping option is a good candidate for pool edges because it has a smooth, rounded edge. This is safer than having a pointed perimeter around your pool, particularly if children will be enjoying the area. This rounded coping will help to prevent cuts and scrapes as a result of energetic poolside games.
The coping is encircled by a layer of quaint Courtstone pavers that add some variation to the color palette of the design. They also have a pleasant pebble-like texture that is smooth but non-slip when wet and pairs well with poolsides.
