Pool Design Features To Impress
It seems that more and more residential pools are mimicking the high-end finishes and design features once reserved for fancy hotel pools.
- Tanning Ledge
- Beach Entry
- Swim-Up Bar
- Fire Features
- Lazy Rizer
1) Tanning Ledge
Tanning ledge is typically around 5 feet by 10 feet and only an average of 18 inches deep. Specialty tanning chairs can be placed semi-underwater to allow you to stay cool while you layout, but in addition to that, the shallow area on a tanning ledge is a safe place for your kids to enjoy the cool water on a hot day.
2) Beach Entry
A beach entry is reminiscent of the gradual slope down into the water that you would experience at the ocean. This requires something of a deeper pool, but many parents love it for small kids, and for its unique look.
3) Swim-Up Bar
Nothing says luxury quite like enjoying an adult beverage right in your own pool bar! Whether you create a grotto bra underneath a waterfall, or simply add stools and a ledge to your pool design there’s no limit to the creative ways you could design your bar.
4) Fire Features
There is something both luxurious and romantic about implementing fire features into your pool design. The flames reflecting off the water are soothing and tranquil at night, and provide light to those moving around the pool.
5) Lazy Rizer
The lazy river, once reserved for water parks only, has become residential. You can incorporate into the design of your pool, or do a giant lazy river that meanders around your entire property.
Pro Tip: The key to designing a one of a kind pool is working with a professional pool builder.
A Pool With Personality
Whether you’re building a new pool or renovating an existing pool, there’s no limit to what you can do. Working with a professional designer will get you the best results, and a pool to love for years to come.
