According to archaeological findings, swimming pools go back more than 5,000 years. Still, they are popular today more than ever. In case you are thinking of having a pool installed in your backyard, you may want to see what’s hot on the market.
As a homeowner, you now have more choices than ever when it comes to the design of your home pool. In this post, we have sampled for you some of the hottest swimming pool trends worth considering.
- Tanning and Lounging Ledges
Tanning and lounging ledges continue to grow in popularity. Most homeowners are adding a ledge or shallow area at their pool’s edge (around 20cm deep). Not only do they act as a launching pad for the kids but also offer you a place to relax without completely submerging yourself in the water.
Also, they bring that ‘resort-style’ experience to your backyard.
- Union of Elements
This is one of the chic swimming pool trends of recent years. This involves combining fire and water to add functionality as well as aesthetics to the pool. The fire features (fire pits or fireplaces) will extend the backyard season well into the cooler months. Additionally, nothing can compare to the beauty of light glowing off the reflection of water.
- Infinite Edge
This is a feature that lets the edge of a pool to fall off into the horizon. The effect is created through a shortened wall on one side of the pool. This shortened wall overflows over one edge and allows the swimming pool to merge into the surrounding landscape.
If you are thinking of installing a pool in your backyard, we hope these trends help spark some ideas.
