3 Aesthetic Options in Vinyl Pool Liners
Be inspired by the many ways you can customize a vinyl liner pool.
When we decided we wanted to install a pool in our backyard, we were pretty blown away by the prices. We really wanted an in-ground pool that would last and add to the value of our home. We just didn't have it in our budget to go with gunite or fiberglass. It was disheartening to think we would have to compromise with a vinyl swimming pool.
That was until we saw the choices available in vinyl lining. These pools could be built in all kinds of shapes and sizes and we could pick a liner that would coordinate great with the rest of our yard. I had no idea it would be so much fun to go through all the pictures of swimming pools to find the one that we liked the best. Our vinyl pool looks fantastic and we didn't have to break the bank to enjoy swimming in our backyard.
Vinyl pool liners are definitely one of the more economical ways to enjoy an in-ground swimming pool in your backyard. These liners have come a long way, with improved durability and plenty of choices in colors and styles. If you have been putting off an outdoor pool because you thought you were "settling" for vinyl, check out the designer options available in this affordable material.
The color options available in vinyl liners today are almost endless. Blue shades range from deep royal blue to crystal clear sky blue and aquamarine. Many companies also offer a variety of off-white and grey shades that add elegance to an outdoor living space. If you want a more natural look that will blend with the rest of your landscape, consider a sand color or a deeper taupe hue. The huge variety of colors allows you to find a pool shade that will look inviting and beautiful in your backyard.
The appearance of texture on the vinyl liner surface also varies. Some resemble the fine grains of sandstone, while others mimic the sleek look of glass tile. You can find vinyl liners that look like fine marble or others that are similar to granite countertops. The variety of textures allows you to customize a pool for any type of landscape. Formal yards look best with the look of marble or quartz. Natural landscapes flaunt a sandstone liner with style. For a whimsical look, check out mosaic tile that offers underwater murals.
Most vinyl pool liners come with an array of borders to top off your backyard pool. Borders include the look of mosaic tile, stone or brick edgings. Some include aquatic scenes filled with tropical fish, while others sport bright botanicals. Borders are created to coordinate with the patterns and colors of the liners, so you get a customized look without the stress of choosing two different colors and patterns and hoping they coordinate when they are installed in your backyard.
Vinyl pools may be easier on the budget, but you don't have to sacrifice aesthetic quality to save a buck. With many beautiful options in vinyl liners, you can create a customized, high-end look for a fraction of the cost.
