Pool Designs Challenge Pool Builders

Before embarking on one of a kind pool designs, the pool owner should find a pool builder that has the expertise and knowledge to put all the pieces together. This is arguably the most important aspect of designing a pool oasis. Once that builder has been found, such as Gib-San Pools which is a member of the Master Pools Guild, then it’s time to create a wish list.

Creating a True Outdoor Living Space

Pool design suggestions for creating a pool outdoor living scape is to include an athletic area for those who don’t want to be in the water all the time, a putting green or a basketball net surrounding the poolscape, waterfalls with sun ledges as a great accent to provide movement of water, soothing sounds and an area for those who want to observe the action. Of course, don’t forget about visual excitement in accented lighting, incorporated into water features that bring the pool to life at night. Deck jets and laminars can also enhance the movement of water when incorporated into pool designs.

Recreating the Inside Out

Incorporation of an equipped kitchen makes entertaining easier and less intrusive – this way you can contain your guests to an area, avoiding back and forth into your home. Also consider outdoor furnishing, their design and scope,  including seating and lounging furniture, and their placement in the pool design.
