Selecting the right pool colour for your pool oasis
Mar 1, 2023

Landscaping plans

Creating your perfect pool space often involves more than just the pool. You may intend to landscape around and near your pool, so think about the colors that will be on display with your chosen poolscape and landscaping plans. For instance, you might want a lot of greenery, with small ferns and hedges surrounding your pool area. Colors that are more natural and earthy look wonderful alongside greenery, as the combination is evocative of a rainforest escape. From the Narellan Pools Marbleglass range, you might consider River Rock or Bondi Sand, to achieve that effect.

Exterior colours

The colours of your home’s exterior can have a surprising impact on your choice of pool colour. To avoid the colours clashing, think about a pool colour that will mesh well with the tones of the existing building. For instance, if you have a red brick home, you could opt for a bright, bold tone for your pool, such as Narellan Pools’ Blue Azurite or Silver Pearl. All-white exteriors can pretty much work with any tone, so consider the other factors in this blog and make your decision from there.

Sunlight and shade

A key factor to consider when deciding your pool colour is the position of the pool. Will it be in constant shade, or will it bask in the sunlight for much of the day? Different times of day will cast a different glow on the pool, meaning a pool colour will look vastly different when it is in full sun, compared with when it is in shade. A pool that is positioned in full shade is best to be a bright colour, to combat the effects of the lack of light. Mediterranean Pearl or Aquamarine, from Narellan Pools’ Marbleglass range, would be great options in that instance. For a pool that gets a lot of sunlight, colours like Narellan Pools’ Whitehaven Pearl and Blue Agate will positively sparkle.

Cleaning the pool

Something you may not have thought of is how certain pool colours can hide debris, or reveal it. If the thought of easily seeing leaves and debris in your pool bothers you, darker colours from the Narellan Pools range, such as Black Onyx or Blue Azurite, will work well to mask the appearance of the debris. On the other hand, if you would rather see any debris as it lands in your pool so you can get on top of the cleaning straight away, pick a lighter colour.

Finding that perfect colour for your pool is one of the most rewarding parts of the journey to pool ownership. While there are many factors to consider when choosing your pool colour, if you want to base your decision on what you like most, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that! It’s important you love your pool, and if you love what you choose to bring the pool of your dreams to life, you’ll spend more time in it!

It’s also important to keep in mind that because we handcraft our clients’ pools with care, no two pools will be exactly the same, even when they are the same colour. This means your pool will be beautiful and unique!

The Narellan Pools Gallery is a great place to visit to see our range of pool colours, showcased with real pools in real backyards. You’ll find pools captured at different times of the day, so you can really see how the colours shine in various conditions.
