Recommendations for the deck area around the pool

My coping will be 18 inches. Need some advice on how wide the non sitting areas of the pool decking should be. Some say 2ft, 3ft or even 4 ft...I cant decide. And advice would be appreciated..

We like to recommend 4' around as that allows for safe walking around the pool with less chance of accidentally falling in. Also helps isolate the pool away from grass or planting beds better. Two people can pass by each other.....
