The word of the day from the moment we started planning with this home owner was eloquent, and I think we delivered with the Custom Blue Stone Tanning Ledge. They wanted the pool to be a show stopper, one that was the focal point of conversation when they hosted parties. The homeowners didn’t have any small children at home, so their pool was for them, for relaxing and enjoying. I think Coastal Pools hit the nail on the head with this project, from Tile choices to the Custom Tanning Ledge, this pool defines the word eloquent.
The first thing you notice about this pool is the tanning ledge, steps and benches; generally on most pools you see the ledges, benches and steps are finished in the same plaster as the bottom of the pool. However to make this project truly pop, we did the surface of all the ledges, benches and steps in a natural blue stone product. The material is the same material we used for the Coping, as well as the water feature, making this entire project truly come together. In my opinion the best part of this pool is the tile, we used the Trident Turquoise Tile from National Pool Tile (NPT) and accented it with the glass inlayed Deco Tile that matches the standard Tile. This pool is going to really pop and shine on a sunny day. Bubblers were added to the top of the tanning ledge, to give that bluestone a little extra touch and truly make it an eye catcher. The water feature is made from the same blue stone as the coping and tanning ledge, and then custom Blue Stone Treads were used as a cap on the water feature to really set it apart. The home owners are going to have a blast hosting parties in this back yard, our friends over at FA Hobson came in and did a wonderful job on the patio work, to tie this whole project together. We finished the project off with a Blue Crab Mosaic because after all the pool was built in Queen Anne’s County.
