Supplying the UK’s Summer Heatwave Pool Trend
With this year’s British summer heatwave seeing temperatures reach an all time high in the UK, it is no wonder there was an increased demand for outdoor swimming pools. Supermarkets such as Aldi and Lidl have reportedly sold out of paddling pools, both online and in stores, with record high sales. The perfect remedy to a hot day is cooling down, and what better than the convenience of having your own private pool that you don’t have to blow up! With long summer heatwaves predicted to return next year and become the ‘new normal’ for British summer time, people are already planning their pools in preparation for next year. Here at Talasey we have also witnessed a significant rise in the use of our ‘Natural Paving’ flagstones and copings for outdoor swimming pools. Not only are pools aesthetically pleasing and fun to use, but they also add value to properties and make a great investment, so this could be a long-term trend!
Natural Paving’s copings come in a choice of 6 colours (Pumice, Cornsilk, Promenade, Lakeland, Golden Fossil and Carbon Black) and 2 different styles, bullnose and natural chiselled, allowing for both modern and traditional designs. As a highly adaptable product copings can also be used for steps and wall caps on retaining walls, which is fantastic for creating a continuity of design throughout outdoor living spaces.
Our Classicstone collection is hugely popular for creating the perfect landscape and surrounding for luxurious pools. Each piece is hand cut and has a naturally riven surface, which creates a warm and rustic look. Every flagstone within this range is unique due to the varying colour palettes, occasional fossil prints and natural veining that occurs on these natural products.
Lincoln based Pickwell Paving created a perfect rustic pool deck area to complement this stunning English landscape using Classicstone ‘Harvest’ see image below.
In addition to the traditional Classicstone range, Natural Paving offers Cragstone, flagstones with a weathered and antique finish, while the Premiastone collection boasts contemporary and modern options.
Choosing the right products is a priority when building and designing a pool, it sets the right mood and compliments the architecture and landscape. Our wide range of pool copings and paving allows home owners and landscape professionals to truly customise outdoor living spaces.
