Right now is the perfect time to start planning for a pool. When your friends and family are battling beach traffic or standing in line for public pools, you’ll be able to step outside and experience an instant vacation in the comfort of your own backyard.
There are multiple benefits to having a pool, including exercise, stress relief, entertaining and family time. Before you begin your project, there are a few things to remember:
Start with a Plan
The first decision you’ll make when building a pool is choosing the company you’ll be working with. This critical design will determine the success of your project. It is essential to choose a team with a great deal of experience, a full complement of resources and a global approach to exterior design. An experienced firm will factor in your interests, decorating style and layout of your backyard. Working with these variables, the designer will create a comprehensive plan that accommodates your lifestyle while highlighting your property.
Find Your Personal Style
The right design team will assess your grounds and create the pool that perfectly balances your needs with the surrounding environment. For example, your lot may lend itself perfectly to a tropical motif, including a pool built to look and feel like a natural lagoon. Freeform in shape and enhanced with stones, rocks and larger boulders, these pools offer a variety of unique design possibilities.
If your home and your taste are better served by a more traditionally shaped pool, you can always add resort amenities like a grotto or swim up bar to complete the vacation setting. Nothing adds life and character to an outdoor setting like the sight and sounds of moving water, such as a waterfall. Louder features can drown out ambient noise, while those that are quieter are the perfect backdrop for poolside conversation.
Work with Your Environment
Carefully selected plants and trees and elegant walls and walkways will create the ideal setting for your pool, while strategically placed lighting will guarantee the poolside celebration can continue well into the night. Lighting focal points such as trees and sculptures add warmth and increase safety, as guests can mingle throughout your well-lit yard. Fireplaces and firepits are popular features that make your pool memorable.
Ask for the Best
Be sure to always review a firm’s portfolio and ask for referrals from other satisfied clients. It is also important to make sure the company stands behind their products and services with a solid warranty. The right firm will make your experience as seamless as possible.
