Part of having a new pool installed or redecorated is having to choose the right pool finish. This includes choosing the texture and color you want your pool to have.
Pool plaster finishes can make or break your pool’s aesthetic design, greatly affecting how a pool looks with water in it and the environment or theme around your pool.
Pool plaster finishes can elevate a swimming pool’s design to a whole new aesthetic level.
Pool finishes include aggregate, tile, and plaster, with each type available in an array of colors, textures, and materials.

Whether you’re building a swimming pool from scratch or going through a pool renovation, choosing the right pool finish can be a game changer.

Plaster is a timeless option for pool finishes.
In fact, pool plaster finishes are the most common choice when it comes to pool surface finishing. Basically, pool plaster is a simple blend of water, Portland cement, and either silica sand or marble dust.
The classic white plaster, also known as marcite, gives a smooth and classic appearance to a pool. This makes it a popular choice despite the range of available pool finishes available on the market.
Additionally, pool plaster finishes are also the most inexpensive option while still being very hardy and durable, lasting up to five or seven years before any signs of wear and tear manifests.
Aggregate pool finishes are the hybrid generation of pool plaster surfaces. They combine colored or white plaster and are mixed with small pieces of river stones, granite, quartz, or glass beads.
Aggregate finishes are available in two forms: exposed and polished.
These finishes are becoming more desirable and popular, providing a luxurious pool surface that is more resistant to chemicals and staining than plaster.
Aggregate finishes also offer a kaleidoscope of textures and colors that can be custom blended to create a truly unique look.
An expert pool contractor can help you weigh the pros and cons so you can arrive at a well-informed decision.
Pool finishes all lean into giving swimming pools a Caribbean or tropical vibe, mirroring the bright blue waters of the ocean.
While the tropical Caribbean vibes still dominate the pool aesthetic industry, some pool owners have explored other options including crystal clear expanse pools that glimmer like a pure stream or earthy greens that give off that hidden pool in the forest vibe.
Pool artistry is possible with decorative pool finishes that are available as plaster, quartz, pebbles, glass beads, and more.
Pool plaster lays the foundation for water color from woodland hues to sparkling, translucent aqua shades.
If you want to achieve blue water, choose a pool plaster finish with blue, white, or gray pigment. For green or aqua green water, you can choose a pool plaster with brown, tan, green, or black pigment.
With the right pool plaster finishes, your pool can have a cool tone like Lake Tahoe or have a refreshing seascape environment that effortlessly takes you to a relaxing beach-like experience under the sun.
If you want to emphasize an environment that mimics a natural stream or a beach environment, you can use warm tones. For a more dramatic effect, go with darker tones for your pool plaster finishes.
As mentioned earlier, pool plaster finishes are available in different textures and materials.
