Choosing a Custom Pool Design is the Way to Go

Jul 27

What better way to end the day than coming home to relax in your own private indoor pool?  Better yet, wouldn’t it be nice if you were able to create your own design that best meets you and your family’s needs?  Customizing your pool design is a way to get exactly what you want so that end results meet and exceed your expectations. By customizing your pool design you can incorporate the features that best match your lifestyle.

To start, you naturally want the form of your pool to match the function. So, if you plan on entertaining family members or neighbors with kids you will want to consider having a shallow area. This design also makes sense if you’re thinking of growing your family in the future and envision your children learning to swim in the pool and hosting pool parties as they grow up. On the other hand, if you’re designing your pool around you and your partner you may want to consider more adult areas such as a spa or a swim-up bar. A built-in ledge for lounging in the sun might be ideal, or perhaps you have always longed for installing a pool that meets your exercise needs in which case you would want to incorporate a design that is long enough for swimming laps.

All these considerations need to be discussed with your Long Island custom pool builder who can listen to your wish list and then educate you as to what recommendations make the most sense given both your yard space and your budget. A skilled pool designer will consider the placement of your water system, proper pool location to maximize the amount of sun and shade throughout the day, as well as the right size and shape pool for your needs while also considering your privacy concerns.

Most importantly, you certainly want the final design aesthetics to complement the vibe you have established in your backyard. Artistic improvements might include a feature such as a waterfall or a fountain or an eye-catching sculpture. Having the pool as a focal point can also help increase the overall value of your property. Best of all, building yourself a peaceful backyard oasis can provide the peace and tranquility you are looking for without ever having to leave your backyard!
