The swimming pool is an extraordinary piece in architectural designing, either we refer to business investment areas, such as tourism and entertainment (hotels, cafés, beach bars), health spots and sports (gyms, fitness studios, spas), or in residential projects in the urban environment or a country side house. Pools can be indoors, outdoors, roofed or not. The materials used, vary according to the pool’s type, use and cost requirements. Can be natural materials (marbles, natural stones, wood) or artificial (ceramics, cement, plastics (PVC)). An elegant and mostly safe swimming pool attracts new customers to your business every day, and will be more worthy short and long-term than a cheap, lower quality’s solution that people won’t feel like using, and this should be considered when you’re choosing the proper materials.
Why choose marble for the pool?
Marble is considered as one of the most basic building materials of a swimming pool because of its special technical characteristics which ensure high quality and longevity, as well as its unparalleled aesthetics, making it the perfect connecting link between a modern construction and the external environment. Furthermore, the use of marble -in contrast to other materials- in any construction, achieves both an aesthetic and qualitative upgrade, since it is regarded as a symbol of high quality and luxury, often serving as a measure of the social position of its owners -even since antiquity.
What do I need to know before I decide?
Marble can be applied to any surface of a pool. From the lining of its walls, the pool coping and pavers, the skimmers and overflow drain grilles, the bull-nose ogees and the skirting boards, to the overflow channels, marble’s options are endless. The large variety of colors and surface treatments will satisfy both the legal requirements and construction regulations, as well as your architectural and decorative needs.
Is a marble pool deck safe?
If you assume that a marble pool deck is slippery, don’t worry, there is absolutely no safety risk. The marbles we produce for use in swimming pools go through special treatment (with techniques such as sandblasting, combing and aging) that offers a non-slip finish. The pool marbles are being waterproofed to protect them from moisture and water purifiers. Meanwhile, waterproofing makes marbles resistant to all kinds of stains (oils, coffee and drinks) and protects their surface from extreme weather conditions and erosion. This means that the marble lining of your pool will last for decades… Sources: godiygo.com, pinterest.com, mylittlethink.com, architectureartdesigns.com, megbiram.com
