If you are considering a new pool or redoing your existing pool deck, now is the time to think about how to maximize your use of it. Gone are the days of the 3-foot concrete strip.

A well planned paver or natural stone pool patio can become the center of your outdoor living space, whether you are looking for a quiet retreat or a place for friends and family to gather. It can extend the amount of time that you use your pool on a daily basis as well as extend the too-short summer season that we have here in Connecticut.

A pool patio that is large enough to accommodate both sun bathing and entertaining is ideal. Be sure to have enough room for chaise lounges and umbrellas in the sunniest spots and room for dining. Consider incorporating an outdoor kitchen in the pool area. A built-in grill or bar area with plenty of seating space will keep the party going.

A fireplace or fire pit in the pool area is a great idea. It creates a gathering spot as well as a way to warm up the cool evenings. Whether you want to roast marshmallows around a fire pit or snuggle in front of the fireplace, a fire feature is a great addition to your pool patio.
