Get Inspiration for Your Pool with These 3 Pool Design Trends
August 10, 2020
When designing a pool for your home, it’s essential to strike a balance between aesthetic appeal and functionality. Of course, you want your pool area to be beautiful and stylish. At the same time, you should also consider how you’ll use your pool (whether for exercise, entertaining or relaxation) to make sure it’s practical enough to suit your everyday needs.
Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to combine style and function when designing your pool. In this post, we’ll take a look at some trending concepts in pool design, including different types of pools that are gaining popularity and how pools are helping homeowners blend their indoor and outdoor spaces.
Merge your indoor and outdoor space with a custom-designed pool
As a gathering place for friends and family, your pool is an important part of your home, and its design should smoothly integrate with the rest of your property. It’s even possible to make your pool a central part of your home design, bringing together your indoor and outdoor spaces.
For example, Blue Haven Pools recently completed an incredible pool project that transformed this home into a tropical paradise. We created the illusion of a “floating house” by bringing together the perimeter of the home and the edge of the pool. This way, the owners can overlook their pool while they’re sitting in their indoor dining area. The result is a one-of-a-kind oasis that seamlessly ties together indoor and outdoor living.
Simplify maintenance and maximise health benefits with a mineral pool
Mineral pools are quickly becoming a must-have for homeowners across Australia. Not only are they better for the environment, but they can also save you quite a bit of money. In fact, an Enviro Smart Mineral Pool can save up to 80% on ongoing operating costs when compared to a traditional pool.
Even better? Mineral water is good for your body and healthier for your family. It’s free from harsh chemicals and chlorine and will leave you feeling refreshed and invigorated. Plus, mineral water can even improve your skin and relieve sore muscles, letting you enjoy the benefits of an expensive day spa from home.
Get your daily exercise in a plunge pool
With nearly everyone spending more time at home, people have had to get creative when it comes to getting regular exercise. Some homeowners have opted to work out in plunge pools, which are compact and designed to fit into small backyard areas.
As another bonus, plunge pools are easy to install because they can be freestanding and don’t need to be placed in-ground. With a plunge pool, you can keep up your fitness routine at home without excavating your backyard for in-ground installation.
