Last summer, did you wish you hadn’t put off that pool project you had been considering? Well now is the time to start planning so that you don’t have to wait another year. In order to be ready for the swim season in Ohio and Michigan start examining these things now:
Gather ideas. If you’ve been thinking about a pool for some time now, it’s possible you have a wish list and pictures of pool designs and ideas but if you haven’t done so yet, here are a few things you can do:
- Review our portfolio. Here you’ll see some of our work and can share with us what you like or want in your pool project.
- Search the web. There are many places you can look, Pinterest and Houzz, for example, where you can get ideas.
Consider how you plan to use your pool to help you decide on the type of pool you need. Do you plan to host parties, use it mostly for your own family, do you want to play games, add a spa feature, want a beach entry, etc.? These are all important pieces of the gathering phase.
Consider different shapes, sizes, and colors. You no longer need to have a rectangle pool that is blue. You can fashion a pool into many different shapes, sizes, and add color to suit your tastes. Our designers can render an image using our state of the art pool studio of the finished pool that will surprise you.
Evaluate your back yard for size and placement. Our pool designer will meet with you at your home to help you understand all the options available to you regardless of whether your yard is large or small.
Determine your budget. Once you know a little about what you like and want in a pool, it’s important to establish the budget. There are several components you may want to evaluate as part of your budget:
- Pool installation costs
- Add-on’s such as a spa or hot tub, bubblers, sun decks, alarms, etc.
- Privacy Fencing
The planning stage can feel overwhelming, but remember that once it’s completed you’ve built for you and your family all of these and more:
- A place to throw parties
- Your own personal outdoor resort
- A place to unwind and relax
- Increases your home’s value
- Gathering place for your children and their friends
- A great way to stay cool
- Long lasting fun
If all of this seems a bit overwhelming, rest assured our designers are available to help walk you through the process! Call for an appointment; together we can “Imagine the Possibilities”!
