If you’ve been on the fence about getting a pool and finally have decided to move forward with it, congratulations. You’ve taken the first step towards pool ownership. Before you can start planning your pool install, you should think about the following design trends.
Glass Tiles Instead of Ceramic
Ceramic tiles have been traditionally used in pool design throughout the years. Although they offer pool owners flexibility with design and appeal, they tend to crack and break, causing them to need to be replaced more often. When choosing your pool’s design, it’s imperative that you consider the long-term costs of any materials you decide to use.
Glass tiles may seem like they are more fragile than ceramic ones, but they are not. They are more durable, making them harder to break. In order to maintain their integrity, during your pool install, you can choose from many different colors and designs of glass tiles to use to give your pool a trendy and unique look and appeal that you and everyone else will love. Glass tiles can also be used for hot tubs.
With so much focus being given to the pool install itself, it can be very easy for you to overlook the conjoining components, such as the hardscape. A good hardscape can transform an ordinary pool into an oasis that you’ll never want to leave. Instead of going the traditional route, you should consider materials like travertine. It is a natural stone that is gaining in popularity because of its beauty and strength. It doesn’t absorb heat so on those scorching hot summer days; you won’t have to worry about the hardscape heating up. Other excellent hardscape material choices include pavers and flagstone. Pavers help to improve drainage and flagstones have smooth surfaces.
Hot Tub Anyone?
Even though you’ve just decided to add a pool to your backyard, why not take things a step further and attach a hot tub to it? You have just as much flexibility with design and materials as you do with a swimming pool. The bonus is you get to mix and match your choices so they can spill over to each other and create a truly unique look. Since there are so many things you can do to enhance your pool’s and hot tub’s function, you may want to research different layouts, poolscapes and materials and consult with the team of professionals you are hiring to complete your pool install.
Not Just About Swimming
Even though you may be interested in getting a swimming pool so you can swim and relax, they also serve a better function. You can use your swimming pool to exercise in and improve your overall fitness and health. You may not be a fan of some of the exercises that are available because they may be too rough and jarring to your joints. Exercising in a pool is helps to protect your joints and minimize your discomforts because the water makes everything you do low impact.
If you decide to get an exercise pool, you don’t need to have it installed outside. You can make it much smaller than a traditional swimming pool so you can have it placed inside of your season room or home. Depending on your land and the design of your home, you may have a variety of design and size options available for an exercise pool.
