Paradise is only a few steps away for the owner of this incredible feature-packed backyard escape. Finished in our popular StoneScapes Tahoe Blue, this dream pool has an elevated half moon spa, a stony cascade, waterslide, swim-up bar, tanning ledge, and plenty of seating for poolside dining and lounging.
Smaller pool spaces present great opportunities for personalization. NPT's StoneScapes® pool finishes lay the foundation for this Florida poolscape - Midnight Blue Regular Pebble for the the pool, with a large sun deck in Sand Mini Pebble - while Fusion Pinwheel tile edges along the entry stairs and a tile turtle mosaic deliver a whimsical custom touch.
When working with a grand view, bigger is not always better when it comes to pool design. This California home focused on a complete entertaining space to accent their golf course view, which includes an intimate "cocktail" pool, fire pit seating area, separate overflow spa, and large barbecue island. Po Pot water features with planters add a dash of seasonal color to the Grey Simulated Quartzite NPT tile and QuartzScapes French Gray pool finish.
This Roman-inspired pool design, featuring a StoneScapes® Aqua White pool finish and NPT's Coral Rustic and Lightwaves Aquamarine tile accents, is an elegant and fitting addition to this Mediterranean-style home. Using classic shapes with softened edges, the beauty of the space is sure to draw a crowd, even when swimming is not on the agenda.
The summer sun is no match for this cozy party pool, featuring QuartzScapes French Gray pool finish and a dramatic tile accent in OceanScapes Blackies tile. The homeowner included some in-pool shade with a quaint cafe table, outfitted with an umbrella stand and surrounded by ample, built-in seating.
Design your dream pool to play up the best features of your home - like a breathtaking waterfront view. Every element of this poolscape draws your eye to the water - from the vanishing edge framed by twin fire bowls, to the in-pool banquette seating. NPT's StoneScapes® Mini Pebble finishes bring a more natural, textured finish to the pond-like pool, with the beach entry and sun shelf in the Sand pool finish and the rest of the pool and attached spa in StoneScapes® Tahoe Blue Touch of Glass.
An L-shaped swimming pool can create two distinct swim spaces, allowing a little separation from different pool activities. The gradual stair-step entry and raised-edge lounging space create a relaxed corner of the pool, encouraging the more splash-prone pursuits to take place around the corner. Finished in NPT's PolishedScapes Summer Breeze, this pool features NPT's Equinox Multicolor and OceanScapes Nautilus tile accents, and a trio of mosaic tile stingrays offers a touch of whimsy.
Your retreat is complete when you add a spillover hot tub, an extra waterfall and bench seating around the whole perimeter of your pool and you can't forget your own island with sand, sun, and a hammock. Featuring: NPT StoneScapes Aqua Blue pool finish, NPT Quartzite Golden Harvest tile, and Laramie Stone.
Hardscape materials can turn a blank-slate back yard into a family fun zone. Set the foundation with a large deck using durable stone, like NPT’s Mocha Travertine, shown here in a French pattern. Ledger stone unifies the space, serving as an accent along the exterior wall, raised spa, gazebo, and outdoor kitchen.
