It’s pool time. It’s the moment when you’re weighing up your options on putting in the pool. What style? What look? What is functional? What’s different? Well, here are a few ideas that might help. They’re the real trends in pools this year.
More Water Features
Pool waterfalls and water fountains are turning up in modern pools with adjustable water flow and height settings. Popular requests include fountain bubblers, water sources and even grottos behind waterfalls.
A water feature depends on your taste and pool size, but you’ll find something for everyone, from sheer waterfalls for entertainment to spraying jets for the kids. Many home owners also install fancy features with LED lighting to create that extra bit of magic and drama.
Geometric Shapes and Water Features Overflow
Geometric is making a big comeback and it’s due to the terrific features that a builder can add. Things like using lighting with water and using the extra space for custom built-ins, like shallow entries, waterfalls and sun-tanning ledges. The brilliant visual display of overflow water cascading over the ledges, waterfalls or fountains and underwater illumination can create a great visual picture. The thing about geometric inground pools is that they generally fit the traditional backyard space better than many of the more complicated designs.
Wading Area Pool with Ledges
Their popularity is growing. Wading area pools are where one or more of the pool’s sides are designed with shallow entry zones, allowing swimmers to enter the water slowly. They’re sometimes chosen by pool owners to accommodate the kids, the elderly or disabled. It’s also a great invitation for sun-seekers and provides an extremely pleasant lounge space on those hot summer days. Albatross Pools can design your wading area pool to optimise water circulation, thereby eliminating the build-up of algae. If you’re considering adding this to your pool design, you’ll definitely need extra space in the yard and budget to accommodate it.
