TIPS FOR CHOOSING, WITH WHAT COLOR TO PAINT your pool glass.
What color do you want the water in your pool to look like?
Many people still think that blue is the only color in swimming pool paints, it is still the most used for swimming pools, given its association with water.
Nothing is further from reality, there are all kinds of tastes and people who seek to innovate through a wide variety of shades.
Years ago it was unthinkable to have a pool of red or pink, black, turquoise, green .....
The current situation is different and each pool has a different approach, depending on the landscaping that we have created around the pool, and the decorative sensation that we want to create.
To choose the color of the pool, we must always take into account the effects of both artificial and natural lighting that our pool has.
In fact, it is not the same to have an outdoor pool, where the sky is reflected, than to use an indoor pool in which the roof will visually influence the color itself.
The depth, the light and the surroundings directly affect the final tone of the water.
If the pool is in a space that receives a lot of sunlight, the color will be lighter and if it receives little light, the water will appear darker.
We must also take into account the elements that surround the pool, since they will have a direct relationship with the final tone.
For example, in swimming pools surrounded by vegetation we will see the water with a more greenish tone.
The spotlights also matter, since they give a colored tonality, so using them inside the pool can represent a very interesting visual attraction.
BASIC ASPECTS TO CONSIDER WHEN CHOOSING THE COLOR TO PAINT A POOL OR POOL
Normally the aim is to give it a concrete effect and make your pool look more.
Let us bear in mind that the reflection of the sky is closely related to color.
Reddish, orange and yellow tones are more easily absorbed by water than blue tones .
For that same reason, we almost always end up seeing a bluish tone in the water.
As you go deeper into the depth, the blue color becomes darker, (as less light penetrates the water), while if there is not a greater amount of water and it does not exceed 50 cm, then we perceive the opposite effect and we see transparent water.
Light, shadows, and surroundings also play a significant role. When there is a lot of sunlight, the color is lighter, while if it receives little light, the water will appear darker.
