Design trends are continually evolving – and swimming pool trends are no different.
Pools are more popular than ever with homeowners, and justifiably so. They bring an element of class to a home and are a great asset in those hot summer months. If you’re a homeowner considering contracting a pool for your home, here are some top pool design trends for 2017:
- Where’s the edge?
- Bringing the beach home
- Back to nature
Vanishing edge pools, also known as infinity or negative edge pools, have one wall shorter on one side letting the water spill into a catchment area below. These gorgeous pools work well in large backyards with lovely views. These kinds of designs can most often be found in spas and hotels overlooking majestic landscapes, but are becoming very popular with homeowners too.
Who doesn’t love kicking off their sandals and settling into the warm sand at the beach? When it comes to pool designs, the sky’s the limit and it’s not so difficult to recreate the beach experience in your own backyard. The summer of 2017 will see more pools installed with zero depth entry letting you gradually get into the water just like you do at the beach. With the right accessories, you can stay home and enjoy the perks of the beach.
Being kinder to the environment is very important to nearly everyone these days – and so it goes for some when deciding on a pool design. If you’re looking for an eco-friendly option, having a natural pool may be the best option depending on your property. Very few, if any, chemicals are used for natural pools. Instead an ecosystem of plants is part of your pool. These pools are especially great if you enjoy swimming in lakes and rivers. Another plus to natural pools is that their upkeep is relatively inexpensive.
One of the most popular trends for 2017 are smaller pools. Homeowners are realizing that bigger is not necessarily better. These space saving pools or swim spas known as “spools,” are perfect for smaller backyards. Now, there is no reason any yard couldn’t accommodate a pool.
