  • What’s popular in pool design?

    Similar to the styling of your home, your chosen pool design should be an expression of who you are and the desired lifestyle you seek to create for your family.  When visiting clients’ properties some 20, 30 or even 40 years down the track, the most aesthetically pleasing and timeless backyards are those which feature a unique pool design that has been tailored to suit the space available and work in unison with the architectural styling of the home.

    Popular Pool Shapes

    Rectangles of all dimensions are on trend in pool design.  Easily positioned along a boundary fence or a straight line of the family home, the rectangle pool shape is a practical yet simplistic and timeless pool design popular amongst renovators, builders and architects.  A wedge, roman, half roman, L shape, B shape and a lap pool are all popular variations of a rectangle pool design.  Creativity can be had with how the pool entry is incorporated into the pool design - an external swim out area (circular, rectangular or freeform in shape) or bench and soft seats internally positioned in the swim area of the pool.

    Freeform pools are by far the most exciting and innovative option in pool design today.  Some clients choose to incorporate the contemporary lines of their newly built or renovated home into the design of their pool and opt for a structured geometric freeform pool shape.  While others desire a natural pool lagoon and decide on a more fluid freeform pool design to blend in with the natural surrounds of the pool, creating a landscape architectural statement.  The pre-engineered nature of an Albatross pool offers complete freedom in pool design achieving almost any shape and size.

    Family size, property easements, natural slope of the property, pool fencing requirements, sun exposure, how you intend to use the pool, pool surrounds and the desired look and feel of your backyard are also key areas worth consideration when tailoring your pool design with a qualified sales consultant.  To organize an obligation free swimming pool quotation, contact us today.
