There are many times in life when we have to make “either/or” choices. However, pool deck designs that combine a beautiful pool, a nice deck area, and a patio aren’t out of the question. You may not get it all at once, but with the right pool deck designer and builder, you can come up with a finished design with all of the extras that allows you to build your pool deck and patio in stages.
Pool Deck Design for Building in Stages
We chose what may look like two different but highly similar examples of combination pool deck designs that show a variety of elements—not all of which need to be added during the initial project.
This design has all of the bells and whistles as you can see in this first image angle. Note the fantastic enclosed pool area and composite deck that separates it from the patio. A nice outdoor fireplace anchors a great seating area. The fireplace provides one end of a semi-enclosed seating area that is anchored by a pergola with another seating area underneath.
You may have to take several glances to see that this is a different angle of the same design.
In this image’s angle, we see the enclosed pool and the main portion of the deck with another seating area under colorful red umbrellas. On the right edge of the image is the other side of that pergola and seating area. While the deck is slightly raised by a single step from the patio, you can just see at the top of the image near the pool that several steps take you to what is an expansive yard that slopes away on closer inspection.
These homeowners most likely started with just the pool, and then added the patio. A later expansion could have encompassed the addition of the composite deck with or without the fireplace, while the pergola could have been done at an even later date.
