Chicagoland Pool Deck Design Ideas

A good pool deck design is functional, enhances your backyard, and transforms your pool into a complementing water feature.


Turn your backyard into the destination spot this summer with a pool and pool deck!  Dip your toes into the water while the children play, do cannonballs into the pool, soak up some sun next to the water, or throw a spectacular outdoor party.  A pool makes a great addition to any backyard, but it’s the pool deck or patio that really pulls it all together into one fantastic outdoor living space.  Here are a few of our favorite pool deck design ideas with options ranging from small to expansive.  When you work with a custom design and build firm like Archadeck of Chicagoland, you have the opportunity to create a deck space that fits your family’s lifestyle.

Designing a deck that leads from your home to the pool is an excellent way to create multiple spaces for seating, dining, and sunbathing.  This allows the adults to steal away to a quieter section of the deck while the kids splash in the pool or the space to throw an outdoor party with plenty of room to entertain.

If you have an above-ground pool in your yard, but already have an outdoor space you love, consider installing a small deck.  This cozy pool deck includes a gate for safety, a built-in bench for swimmers and towels, and the lattice skirting hides the pool pump and other items from view, creating a pleasant look while maximizing the functional space.

Wrapping a deck around a curved pool can get expensive.  Consider building the deck on one side for a more budget friendly design.  If you’re in the market for a new pool, consider a design that includes straight edges.Archadeck of Chicagoland Pool Deck Builder

Perhaps you already have an in-ground pool installed, yet want an outdoor space that complements the pool area.  If this is the case, a deck coming off the house and designed to land on the concrete surrounding the pool is an excellent option.Archadeck of Chicagoland Pool Deck Builder

This unique pool deck design is elevated to come off of the split-level home.  A locking double gate is a safety measure that prevents accidentally slipping into the pool.  Open the gates and you have a great space for the kids to jump right off the deck into the pool!

Patio pool decks are a great alternative to wood or composite decking. Consider how your pool will look in your yard. You’ll spend more time looking at the pool while you’re grilling, dining, and visiting with friends than you will actually spend in the pool.  Implementing a patio design creates a beautiful landscape that incorporates the pool as an attractive water feature.
