21. Shimmering Quartz | Flooring patterns

Quartz tile is made up of crushed quartz, white cement, and pigment. Using quartz for your pool finish gives it a luxurious look. During the day or at night, the quartz crystals shimmer and reflect light.

Your choice of a blue or teal pigment depends on whether you’re aiming for a lighter or deeper-looking hue for your pool design.

22. Seamless Gunite

You might be wondering what gunite flooring is like. Essentially, gunite is the same as concrete except that it is applied in layers with a specialized spray gun. This means that gunite flooring is seamless and extra-durable. 

Adding tile accents to a gunite finish can add more style and taste for a classier pool design.

23. Bead Accents | Flooring patterns

Accenting the floor of your pool with beads can be a small design choice that creates a big impact. Taking a more toned-down approach, bead accents can dress up a concrete or plaster pool with an interesting trim or cover the entirety of the floor. 

Small pebbles and beads are used and offer various color and style options.

24. Smooth Paint

Paint for your flooring pattern relies on a specific epoxy paint and results in a smooth coating with a plethora of color options. However, paint can prove to have a short life expectancy and will need to be repainted about every year. 

Depending on your climate patterns and pool maintenance practices, choosing paint can either be too much to handle or the perfect fit. While pool design creativity with paint is never-ending, it all depends on your commitment.

Made from tiny glass fibers woven with polyester resin, fiberglass is a strong material that is low maintenance and has quick installation. Fiberglass is also algae resistant due to its smooth, non-porous surface and can create a healthier swimming experience. 

Although fiberglass pools have fewer options for size and shape, these premade pools come in many colors and you can also customize by adding steps, tanning ledges, or water features.
