When you work with Pools by Design to create your custom pool or spa, we make sure to consider not only the swimming area itself, but everything around it. We can completely transform your outdoor living space. We take every element into account and design a truly beautiful and functional yard. One element to consider is your pool decking. The appearance of your deck can impact how your pool will look. This is also an important consideration since you will walk over this surface every time you want to swim or relax poolside. Travertine pavers are one of the best options for both form and function.
Here are some of the benefits of using travertine around your pool or spa:
Travertine stonework creates a classic aesthetic for your pool area. Even better, it is incredibly customizable. You can choose different colors, sizes, and shapes for these natural stone tiles. Whether you pick one color or use a mix of different hues, it is sure to look gorgeous. We can help you coordinate your travertine decking with your pool finish or tiles to create a cohesive design.
Travertine pavers, which is the variety used for outdoor applications such as a pool decking, are incredibly durable. They withstand sun exposure and heat, which is especially important in Tucson. The thick stone isn’t damaged by rocks, furniture, or extreme weather, so you can trust that it will last for years to come.
If you’ve been swimming in Arizona, you’ve probably experienced running across hot pavement barefoot as quickly as possible to get into your pool. Travertine solves this problem. The material reflects heat and absorbs the lower temperature of the ground below. This makes the surface cool to the touch, even on hot summer days.
Travertine pavers have a porous surface that absorbs any water that splashes onto it. As a result, there aren’t any puddles around your pool that you can slip on. This is especially beneficial if you have young children.
Another benefit of this building material is that it is relatively easy to add, even after your pool is finished. This means that you can have a small pool deck to start and you can expand later if you choose. This allows you to allocate more of your budget for the other features you would like.
If you want to transform your backyard, we can design your landscape and other outdoor living features, from outdoor kitchens to firepits and more. We make sure to consider every last detail so your yard is exactly how you imagined it. We also use state-of-the-art design software so you can get a better idea of how the final result will look.
