Your backyard swimming pool isn’t just about the pool itself; it’s also about the deck (or patio) that surrounds it. Think about it. While you may spend hours upon hours in the pool, we’re willing to bet that you actually spend more time lounging around the pool than splashing in the pool. That’s why having an attractive pool deck is so important. You need a place to veg out, catch those rays, sip a drink, and entertain!
In order to help you with the design of your pool and deck, we’ve collected several examples that show off how both elements can be brought together in perfect harmony. Here, you’ll find pools that have amazing shapes and design elements, and that are also surrounded by decks as highly enjoyable as the pools themselves. Some of these examples feature classic designs and others are incredibly modern. All of them are stunning to look at, though!
