Textured Patio Pavers
For the most beach-like look, choose pavers with a subtly pebbled texture and be sure to use jointing sand that’s as close a match to the paver colors as possible. This will give you the impression of an expanse of warm sand leading to crystal-clear waters.
Beacon Hill Flagstone from Unilock gives you a beautifully textured surface that looks stunning in the low light of morning and evening. For the cleanest aesthetic, choose the XL pavers. You will love the choices of three blended colors that can give you exactly the beachy look you want: Almond Grove, Fossil, and Tuscany. Swimmers will love the barefoot- and swimsuit-friendly texture, which features a slip-proof surface and long-lasting color. EnduraColor technology uses a two-step manufacturing process that combines a durable base made with coarse aggregates, and a top layer featuring concentrated color and wear-resistant fine aggregates.
Sandy Patio Pavers
If you love the look of sand that’s been washed smooth by gentle waves, choose Beacon Hill Smooth from Unilock. Achieve a luxurious resort look with Tuscany, a beautifully blended color that will remind you of your most magical vacations—or inspire you to take some great trips!
Umbriano pavers from Unilock in Summer Wheat, in an XL 24” square size, will bring to mind seaside getaways. When you opt for the Tan Sand jointing compound, you’ll create a pool deck that looks just as clean and smooth as a beach at low tide! What makes this paver really special, however—and what will give your patio incredible character—is its unique variegated look, which is achieved by using real granite particles that are dispersed throughout the paver to catch the light in a way that’s reminiscent of the sparkle that everything seems to have at the ocean.
The Finer Details
Finish the look at the water’s edge with complementary coping such as Brussels Fullnose Coping from Unilock. This tumbled coping can help to give your poolside a relaxed feel. Choose Sandstone for the most realistic sand-meets-water look.
To complete the beachy feel, add fire and shade. Nothing is more magical than a bonfire on the beach! You can re-create past fire memories with the Sunset Fire Pit Kit from Unilock, for a hardscape feature that will complement your pool deck.
Installing a pergola at the poolside will give you shade when you’ve had enough of the sun. Just add a beverage cooler that complements the fire pit or outdoor kitchen—add a few string lights and beachy decor, and you’ll feel like you’re at your favorite resort!
