Pools Designed With Luxury In Mind

Living in Southern California means enjoying an average of 266 sunny days per year according to the U.S. Climate Data. With all that sunshine, you’re bound to want to cool off at some point or entertain outside as much as possible. If you truly want to complement this idea, you may find yourself looking for a beautiful poolscape. In order to accomplish such a particular addition, you should think about incorporating a few design aspects borrowed from master pool designers. Doing so will help create that luxurious pool oasis many of us desire.

Blending the Architecture

Your pool should be an extension of your home’s architecture. If you live in a home with modern lines and materials, then your pool should also reflect that same look and feel. More traditional home settings have a bit more leeway with being able to use both geometric and freeform designs. Traditional classic home designs should take a more formal approach and stick with a clean structured look.

Fabulous Features

Look for little to no visible lines. Try to create a space that looks natural. If your landscape does require a retaining wall, make certain that you incorporate natural stone. You may also want to think about adding a spa section or a sun shelf. Both features allow you to extend the use of your pool but serve very different aspects. Recent luxury trends are shying away from the large rock waterfall of yesteryear and upgrading to a more subtle infinity edge or spouts. These sources of subtle water flow provide relaxing low-level sounds, which allow you to unwind and converse with ease.


Bring in the Garden

Designing a luxury poolscape also means incorporating your landscape. More homeowners are wanting to provide a more natural setting where native plants and vegetation can grow. If you’re an avid gardener, think about your pool area as a backdrop for your garden — or vice versa. If you’re thinking about sectioning off a portion of your pool to water plants and to create a habitat for nature, you’ll be taking a greener approach. Many people are incorporating a portion of the pool to create a biological filtration system, which recycles water and uses little to no chemicals.

Choosing a Color

Depending on your location, choose a color that balances your environment. You’ll find luxury pool colors from an array of blue, green, gray, sand, and even black hues. Darker pool colors tend to reflect your surroundings a bit more. So if your pool location is an extension of your home, you may want to opt for a darker color. However, if you find yourself swimming alongside your garden area, go with a more greenish palette, which will work nicely with surrounding vegetation. Traditional darker blues work well for a more customary setting. Keep in mind that the amount of sunlight your pool receives will determine how it appears.luxury pool

Add Another Element

Your oasis won’t be complete without adding a fire element. Luxury pools today play double duty as a backdrop for entertainment spaces. Adding a fire feature allows you to even further extend the use of your pool area throughout the year.

Overall, if you are thinking about creating a new luxury pool for your home, speak with a professional first and review a checklist of features that you want to incorporate along with discussing how your family will use your new pool. In a few short months, you’ll be relaxing poolside and enjoying your home even more. Smith Brothers oversees all construction and works closely with the pool designer, landscape architect, lighting designers and homeowners to make sure your end pool design is perfect.
