Deciding on a Pool Design

Deciding on a Pool Design

Everyone has a different vision for their pool design, and the following tips can help you decide on the design you want.

If you’re considering installing a pool, there is a big question that needs to be answered: what design do you want for your pool? To get the answer, you want to know how you plan to use the pool. Is it meant for relaxing or for entertaining many guests? How many people will the pool need to accommodate at once? Are there certain features you want your pool to have? In addition to this, you should understand the layout of your yard and get familiar with any laws pertaining to pool installations because there could be laws that influence your plans. Everyone has a different vision for their pool design, and the following tips can help you decide on the design you want.

Future Features

On top of knowing the purpose of your pool, you should think about potential features you want to install later. Even if you aren’t getting those features installed initially, it’s important to leave enough space for these added components when you eventually decide to get them. Some features don’t even have to be directly related to the pool. You can easily enhance your outdoor living experience by installing different water features or perhaps an outdoor kitchen. Features like these add more functionality to your yard and raise curbside appeal.


Your pool design might seem good on paper, but how practical is it? The design of your pool should allow it to work as intended without too much hassle on your end. Is it easy to move between the house and your pool space? Do you have a changing area? Where will you keep all of your pool chemicals and equipment? These concerns need to be addressed early so that you don’t run into any unpleasant surprises later.

Consider Your Budget

This is always a big one. Plan your budget early because it will help your pool contractor out when working on your pool design. A budget is especially handy to have when you already have a vision for how you want your pool to look, and you’ve factored in the laws and regulations in your area to make sure there are no complications. By running the numbers early, it becomes easier to know what materials should be used to make your pool, as well.
