Owning a swimming pool makes the summer so much better, since you’re only a couple of feet away from the refreshing cold dip. Once you’ve decided to construct your home oasis, picking the perfect design to fit your backyard should be easy. In the plethora of fabulous designs and myriad of innovative features, you might have a difficult time opting just for one. Therefore, check some of the 2017 trends and make your mind in no time.
Zero Depth Entry and Tanning Ledges
With a new pool trend, you’ll be able to provide your family with a real beach-like feel in your own home. Zero depth pool entries resemble an ocean shore, and allow you to get inside and out of the pool easily. You won’t have to use the stairs or ladders, because you’ll gradually go down and up, just like you would walk into the ocean. It’s especially suitable for people with disabilities and families with small children. If you’re ready to invest more money, add sand to your swimming pool shore and create the ultimate beach effect.
A tanning ledge can be a cool upgrade to your swimming pool where you can kick back and enjoy the sun. A baja shelf is also great for children to play, when they’re not in the mood for swimming. What’s more, with some extra decorative lighting or fancy tiling your swimming pool would look very lavish.
Alternative Sanitation Systems
More people are turning to no-chlorine swimming pools, despite the fact that it’s highly effective with killing bacteria in the water. Consequently, salt water systems became very popular, since they contain no chemicals. While many people believe this is a completely different system, salt-water chlorination only puts a chlorine inside the pool through a different mechanism. What’s more, no matter how much you wanted to eliminate chlorine, it can only be done to a certain extent. Opting for ozone or UV systems only gives you the opportunity to put 50% less chlorine than you’d usually do, but you’ll still have to use it in order to eliminate the bacteria from the water.
Now, there’s a solution even for those who don’t have a huge backyard. A swim spa, spool or a nice plunge pool will give you the opportunity to have a refreshing dip even if you don’t own a huge yard. Thanks to its compact design, a plunge pool will allow you to play with your friends or little kids even in the smallest yard. Additionally, a spool can be a great way to make the most of the small layout, since it’s larger than a spa and yet smaller than a pool. It’s excellent for keeping you warm during colder months, while it’ll refresh you in the hot summer.
Have you ever wanted to have a waterfall in your backyard? Well, now you can, thanks to the amazing water features many pool builders can provide you with. You can add fountains, waterfalls, and even water walls to your swimming pool and create a unique atmosphere and a spa-like experience. Furthermore, many people tend to create the most comfortable environment to relax, so feel free to add a bar, inside your pool, and create a unique swimming pool you used to see only in the luxurious resorts.
Building a swimming pool in your backyard gives you a myriad of benefits. You can sunbathe from the privacy of your home, have a refreshing swim at any moment, and always keep an eye on your kids. Therefore, check out the recent swimming pool design trends, pick the one that’s most appropriate for your backyard and bring the luxurious and relaxing oasis to your home.
