Looking for pictures of everyone’s stamped concrete around their pools. Our pool is getting installed in January and is 16×36. The concrete around I will be 36×54. Is that way to much concrete? Do I really need that much room? We will be getting a hot tub, a table and chairs , 4 chaises and maybe a sectional. The dimensions around the pool will be 10 ft at entry , 14 ft on right side, 6 feet in left side and 6 ft at the end if that makes sense. I’m just thinking it will we way to big.
caro: Honestly—if I could build another swimming pool I would probably double the amount of concrete I’ve got! I’ve got 10ft on the deep end side and 4ft all the rest of the way around. If I had one complaint it would be that we don’t have enough sitting room and concrete around the pool. We do have stamped concrete though and it is SLICK! The pool came with the house we bought so I’m not sure what it was sealed with, but holy moly it’s slick! I don’t have the best picture of the whole pool so you can see all the concrete, but this is what the stamped concrete we have looks like.
andre: my friend got stamped as well and said it’s slippery and gets very hot but it looks beautiful!
ili: what color is the concrete.
carol: I have no idea. It’s a tanish color.
ili: it’s very nice.
joanna: The more concrete the better – I have read so many posts of people saying they wish they would have gotten more when they built the pool. Also, stamped concrete that is sealed is very slippery. My sister in law had it and there were many falls at her pool.
bill: Looks like the right amount of concrete to have enough space for loungers etc and not feel cramped. We have the same overall amount and it works well.
rebecca: We have plain old brushed concrete. Never hot and never slippery.
andre: this is what I’m getting. Do you mind me asking your pool dimensions and how much concete you have around.
rebecca: 16×32 and the concrete part I am not positive about. PM me and I will remember to measure later today.
lacey: We have salt finished concrete and I wish we’d gone with the brushed concrete instead- or kool deck. It gets hot mid-day and is fairly slick when wet.
leslie: 4 foot around and 10 at diving board end and 12 at entrance end. Just barely enough for a table and chairs and two lounge chairs. In my opinion it’s not quite enough! I say get as much as you can afford!
