Who doesn't love a refreshing swimming session in their own backyard? If you are keen on getting a home pool, you are at the right place. Today we'll reveal 7 dreamy pool ideas that will inspire anyone to get a home pool.
A home swimming pool is not just a luxury, but a great way to spend quality time with friends, kids, and family. However, not all pools are made alike. Some pools have a dreamy element that helps them stand apart. Let's find out what these pool ideas are.
Add a diving board
Sometimes all you need to take your pool from average to amazing is a small piece of board. A diving board instantly transforms any boring swimming pool into a fun-filled, exciting pool. Be it kids or adults, everyone loves to dive off a board straight to the pool. Note that to have a diving board in place, your pool must have at least a certain depth. Talk to your pool manufacturers or constructors beforehand if you want your pool to have a diving board. This small element alone will take your swimming pool to the next level of excitement.
If you have the space for it, go for an indoor pool by all means. Indoor pools have some advantages with respect to pool maintenance since it stays in a relatively protected space. The best thing about indoor pools is that you can access them whenever you want and however you want. It gives unmatched privacy to anyone using the pool.
Indoor pools can be of many sizes. Even if you do not have enough space for an Olympic-sized indoor pool, getting a smaller one will also be a great idea.
Pavements and landscaping
Pool sides are typically covered with specialized tiles that are water-resistant and immune from water damage. However, tiles are not the only option for a great poolside. If you want a dreamy pool this new year, consider landscaping the poolside.
Simple stone pathways and pavements around the pool can take its aesthetics to the next level. It adds a rustic charm that leaves an impression on anyone who uses the pool. Most importantly, these stone pavements and pathways can be coated with water-resistant material. If you want something more than the ordinary, a stone pavement by the poolside is a great way to achieve it.
Flowers and bushes
Along with stone pathways, adding hedges and flowering plants along the pool will make it much more appealing. If you can do both, your pool will stand out even from a distance. Lining the poolside with flowering plants and hedges adds a touch of greenery to it.
However, you would need professional pool maintenance in order to keep these elements intact. If the water from the pool gets to the hedges, it would damage the plants severely. Make sure you have a protective boundary that prevents the chlorine-rich water of the pool from getting to the plants.
Play with lights
Lights are the simplest way to take any pool to the next level of aesthetic appeal. It's suitable for both indoor and outdoor pools. There's a vast range of options when it comes to swimming pool lighting. You can choose between colors, sizes, alignments, and a lot more.
Underwater lights are the best thing that any pool can have. With so many options to choose from, there's no chance of running out of choices. You can even add lights to the poolside to make it more appealing and illuminated.
Tiles are the first option for swimming pools for most people. However, we are often reluctant to experiment with tile sizes, shapes, and designs. Brining even small changes to the tiles has a great overall effect on the pool's appearance. For example, adding retro-themed tiles will instantly make your pool stand out.
As with lights, there's no shortage of options in decorative tiles. But make sure that they are suitable for swimming pools. You can use a combination of tiles to add depth and character to your swimming pool. With decorative tiles, the possibilities are indeed endless.
Pool party setup
By definition, you can have a pool party in any pool. But to have an amazing pool party, you need to design your pool beforehand. Add seating fixtures in and around the pool and floating items inside the pool. Having a small outdoor bar and barbecue will complete the setup. It doesn't take a lot to make any pool perfect for a pool party.
We hope these ideas will inspire you to make the most of your swimming pool. At the same time, note that pool maintenance is important for every swimming pool, no matter how grand or simple it is.
