Lee and I Love having a pool in the backyard. It’s a fun way to get physical activity during the day and to enjoy time in the sun with family and friends. When shopping for pool care items, my go-to is, www.1stdirectools.com. If you want some accessories to make swimming more fun (slides, or even lights that can be placed along the edge of a pool to add colors to the water) they carry those items as well. If you do not have a pool currently, but you are thinking about adding this luxury to your home, you might want to continue reading about the latest trends in pool designs:
Trending Pool Designs
Small Pool Designs
One idea to consider is a smaller pool that gives an intimate experience. It’s an ideal option for homes that have a smaller yard, or for those with small families. Since the pool is smaller, naturally it is less expensive and easier to maintain. It’s often surrounded by stone pavers as a way to accent the blue water.
One fun design that plays with the mind is a vanishing edge pool. This design is created when the edges of the pool are made just a bit shorter than normal. It allows for the water to flow over the side, giving the illusion that the pool is edgeless. I love to design this type of pool for clients who live on a body of water, it tricks the eye into seeing the pool flowing into the water. A basin is built to catch the water that spills over, with the water being circulated back to the pool. This is a luxurious look for homes of any size. These pools are also called infinity edge pools.
Beach Entry Swimming
Want to have a beach in your backyard? You can do so with one of the latest pool trends. Instead of adding steps that lead to the water, create a flat landing that looks like the edge of the beach. The pool gradually slopes to deeper water from the deck. Therefore, this is a good option for families with younger children who can stay in the shallow end. A tanning ledge is also an idea for the pool so that you can easily transfer from the water to the sun without dealing with lounge chairs.
