There are few things better than relaxing in a swimming pool on a hot summer’s day, and a pool can certainly be the perfect addition to your home and garden.
But when you have a beautiful garden, the last thing you would want is to bring the overall aesthetic down with a conventional swimming pool.
Here are some swimming pool design ideas for your garden:
Paint those pool walls:
Colourful walls can make swimming pools look more natural and inviting, and oftentimes create that ‘tropical’ vibe.
Get creative with your pool coping:
You wouldn’t put a beautiful picture in an ugly frame, so why would you do that with your swimming pool? There is a multitude of different materials and finishes that you could use to help elevate and accentuate the look of your pool with the coping. You could use some granite tiles, mosaics, wooden decking, etc. the possibilities in this department are endless.
Install a decorative patio:
Why not extend your pool coping to incorporate a decorative patio? Slap a table, some chairs, and an umbrella on there and you have wonderful pool-side space for the whole family to enjoy.
No, we are not talking about the pool as a feature on its own. But if you are going to be adding a swimming pool to your garden, why not incorporate a unique water feature to go alongside it. This can be done by means of having a small waterfall, fountains, or even a waterslide installed.
Fancy-up the fence:
If you have pets or small children, a fence to surround the pool is an absolute must-have. But the fence doesn’t need to be some grey, metal eye-sore that’s going to hide your beautiful new addition.
Get creative with your fencing ideas by use of interesting colours, styles, textures, and even greenery such as plants or shrubs. This is an excellent way to accentuate the look of your pool without having to put function over form.
When it comes to designing your pool area, it’s easy to focus solely on the pool and the immediate surroundings. However, it’s important not to forget about the pavement entrance.
This area is the first thing your guests will see when approaching your home and can set the tone. A well-designed pavement lawn and entrance can create an inviting and cohesive look, while a neglected or poorly designed entrance can detract from the overall beauty of your pool area.
