Factors to Consider When Choosing a Pool Deck Layout

Before you call us with a plan, however, read this article to take a closer look at some of the factors to consider before you choose a pool deck layout.

Space
Plan your pool deck layout so that you can make the most out of the space you have. If you are tight on space, avoid buying a great deal of furniture. This can crowd your pool deck and make it hard to use. If you have a sizable pool deck, large furniture helps fill the space, as well as adding landscaping such as potted plants. Don't forget to consider the amount of shade and privacy you will have with each pool deck layout configuration.

View
Do you have an extraordinary view that you want to show off? If so, arrange your pool deck layout so that this view is obstructed as little as possible. Even if you don't have a view beyond your property that you want to show off, you can install an outdoor fireplace or add attractive landscaping to create a focal point, around which you can base the layout of your pool deck.

Proximity to Amenities
Close to the pool so that swimmers can carry on a conversation with people that aren't in the pool, but not so close that people who aren't in the pool are likely to get wet. If you have an outdoor kitchen or outdoor fireplace, plan your pool deck layout so that you can maximize enjoyment of these amenities. If you do not have an outdoor kitchen, you may want to arrange your pool deck so that it's close to the house. This way you can go into the house quickly and easily if you need to grab something.
