Swimming‌ ‌Pool‌ ‌Design‌ ‌Trends‌

TINY POOLS

It is a common misconception that to have a swimming pool, you must have a big yard. However, we are throwing that notion away because tiny pools are all the rage! If you have a small yard, the tiny pool could be a perfect and beautiful addition. If you have a large yard, you can have it all by surrounding that smaller pool with other great outdoor features like a seating area or fire pit. You may have to get strategic about sizing and placement but what’s a little more planning to get the backyard of your dreams?

LESS IS MORE

In past years, pool trends have been very experimental. From funky shapes, to waterfalls, waterslides, and diving boards, pool design was about having it all in terms of features. Recently we have seen homeowners opting for a more modern and elegant appearance for their pools- preferring pools that don’t overtake the yard but rather feel like a part of the architecture of the home. This goes along with the tiny pool trend as well.

Rather than building an enormous pool with every feature imaginable, a more relaxing space is being achieved.

An added bonus of a small pool is the less energy and time required to heat the pool making it more economical and convenient to go swimming more months of the year.

LEDGES

Less is more does not have to mean forgoing every water feature, but simply opting for more subtle ones. Ledges or tanning steps are a massive trend this year for their functionality and their seamless appearance. These features allow you to enjoy the refreshing water of the pool and warmth of the sun all at once while adding a unique look to your pool with a multi-level design.

Ledges are functional for all age groups, allowing the adults to tan and comfortably sip their drinks while the kids can play safely in the shallow water and also help dogs get in and out easily.

Furthermore, not only are ledges functional, but they create a resort-like environment in your own back yard!

NEW COLORS

When we picture a swimming pool, usually the water is a light clear blue. This has been a popular look for decades but interestingly, many homeowners are now choosing darker shades for their pools. Opting for colors like navy blue, dark green, or even black, creates a brand-new look for residential pools, coloring the water in a fresh way.

Switching to dark colors can also help you save on heating costs as they effectively attract more light into the pool.

Furthermore, darker interior pool colors can create a natural lagoon look for your pool and give your backyard a relaxing feel you won’t have to vacation for.

LEDs

We are taking pool lighting to a whole new level! Homeowners are choosing brightly colored LED lighting instead of the typical white or yellow bulbs. With LEDs, you can transform the feel of your backyard in an instant and incorporate all your favorite colors. Not only do they allow you to see better and enjoy your pool at night, but many systems offer a myriad of color choices as well as automatically changing colors. This is a great way to spice up your pool in a modern way you won’t get tired of because you can change it up any time you like.

THE TAKEAWAY

This year, homeowners are looking to modernize their pools with clean lines, fresh colors, and functional additions. They are opting for pools that fit their home, lifestyle, and aesthetic while still being the exciting addition that they should be. Less is more in terms of boldness but not in fun and functionality.

At the end of the day, trends come and go and your pool is a big investment, the design should be something you love.

Have fun with it, and happy designing!
