If you’re planning to join the realm of swimming pool owners – as tens of thousands of homeowners across the United States have – you will want to spend time determining the ideal pool design for your family and unique lifestyle.
Because a swimming pool carries up-front costs and brings with it ongoing monthly maintenance and upkeep, you will want to take all of the pricing of owning a pool into consideration. Once you have a budget in your mind it’s time to meet with a pool contractor and begin the process of having your dream pool constructed.
There are several options to discuss with your pool contractor. Are you in the market for a gunite or fiberglass pool? When you meet with the design team, this and other services can be discussed as you design your unique swimming pool. You can also discuss on-going maintenance, landscaping or the addition of pool fencing, covers and more.
If you’re not quite sure where to even begin with deciding on the style of pool you want because you don’t know what your options are, here are a few:
- Indoor pools
- Lap pool – ideal if you have a small yard or if you just want a pool for swimming laps
- Saltwater pool
- Infinity or vanishing edge pool – these are the style of pool that are ideal if you have a “yard with a view” because one edge of the pool looks as though it “vanishes” into the horizon
- Beach entry pool
- A rock pool
- A natural pool – this is one that blends into the natural landscape and in most cases is kept clean through the use of various plant life
After you’ve decided on your pool style, it’s then time to decide what kind of accessories you might want in your pool. Some pool accessory options include:
- Diving board
- Rock waterfall
- Various mosaic styles
- Sun shelves
- Quartz finishes
- Fountain features
- Built-in spa at one end of the structure
As you can see, there are myriad choices that you will make. Our design team will walk with you through the entire process to create the pool that best suits your needs, budget and imagination.
