Pool patios are no longer just a 3-foot strip of concrete around the edge.

When planning a pool patio, keep in mind that you are going to want to get as much us as possible out of your pool. So how do you do that? By creating an outdoor living space!

Adding outdoor living elements to the pool area will greatly increase the use of your pool and extend the outdoor season.

Consider adding a fire pit or fire place to the pool patio. This will draw people out on nice evenings.  Take a quick dip and sit by the fire to warm up.

Maybe you want to add a built in grill island near the pool. As you are grilling, the kids and guests can be in the pool and you are still part of the fun.

Creating a built-in bar area will give people a place to gather around while the party goes on.

These ideas and many more will add to your enjoyment of your pool.
