Designer Pool Building: 2 Things to Consider

Posted on: 26 July 2017

Having a swimming pool installed in your home is a great way to make the most of the hot Australian summers. However, before you go ahead and call in the contractors, you should carefully consider if you want a standard swimming pool installed or a designer pool. Standard pools are typically standard sizes and shapes and do not have any additional features. A designer pool will allow you to jazz up your pool or to add extra features which are not found in standard pools. Below is a guide to 2 things you consider when having a designer pool built on your property.

The construction of a kid's play area

If you have young children, you may want to consider asking the pool builder to construct a special play area for them. Very young children can be easily entertained in the shallow end of a pool or with a special inflatable seat which will allow them to experience the joys of being in the water with little risk. However, as your child gets older, they may become bored in a standard pool and demand extra excitement and entertainment. 

You can solve this problem by asking the pool builder to design and install a special kids section in your designer pool. The kid's section of a designer pool will typically be extended from the shallow end of the pool and will feature pool accessories such as a slide, seating and water guns. Having a kids section constructed as part of your designer pool will also allow you to group kids together so you can keep an eye on them as they play.

The type of materials

Choosing to have a designer pool developed on your property gives you the chance to choose the materials and the colour scheme which works best for you. You may wish to choose a material which matches the exterior of your home. For example, if you home is constructed using concrete, you may wish to have an un-tiled pool constructed which displays bare concrete. 

You may also wish to install pebbles in the base of the pool at the point it becomes deeper. The change in floor surface will act as a warning to anyone using the pool that the depth of the water is about to increase.
