Custom Pool Ideas for Your Summer Pool Building Project
Mar 29, 2021
What are some fantastic and creative custom pool ideas for your new summer swimming pool project?
If there’s one thing that custom pool builders will never get tired of, it’s creating the most beautiful swimming pool designs that most people have ever seen. Thanks to innovative architecture, advanced technologies, and pure desire, homeowners now have an enormous number of options. Let’s take a look at several of our favorite custom pool ideas that would be perfect for a summer pool building project.
An Eye-Catching Pathway
When thinking about custom pool ideas, many homeowners immediately start considering design options for the pool itself. This makes sense, of course, but if you really want to give the pool area some pizzazz, you should begin by creating an eye-catching pathway leading up to it. You can go with a stone pathway, colorful lighting, greenery on each side, etc.
Plenty of Greenery
One of the best ways to make your swimming pool area look awesome is to take advantage of it being in an outdoor space. Covering the area in lots of greenery, such as shrubs and flowers, will make it look incredible. You can even go all-out by having your shrubs trimmed into different shapes or characters by artistic professionals.
Tropical Lighting Effects
The truth is that adding any type of lighting to your swimming pool area will make it look even better. Colored lights are especially popular and can be placed above, recessed in the deck, under the surface of the pool, and other areas. If you truly want to stand out, choose colors that accentuate the greenery and create a tropical appearance.
Modern Water Features
Adding a water feature as either part of your pool or the surrounding outdoor space has become an increasingly popular choice among homeowners. Depending on the size of your yard, your overall budget, and other factors, you can opt for a nicely designed fountain, a river leading up to the pool itself, or one of several related options. Whether you go for simple or fancy, it’ll definitely add something to the pool area.
Fire (and Water) Features
If you want to add a bit of “flare” to your custom swimming pool, fire features are a creative option. You can add an island featuring a small flame display that will dazzle your family and guests while they enjoy your pool. Check out one of our favorite custom pool projects to see an example of a fire feature here!
If fire features are not for you, go in the opposite direction and install a water feature instead! A waterfall that flows directly into your pool is always a great option for water displays.
Green Roof Pool House
If your home already has a pool house or you’re thinking about getting one built, consider adding some greenery onto it. Yes, we’ve referred to greenery on this list already, but you really can’t get enough. Adding plants and maybe even a garden on top of your pool house will definitely get everyone’s attention. If you ever decide to sell your home, it’ll be a great selling point.
Modern Fire Pit
Even though it’s often quite warm in our great state of Florida, fire pits have become a popular option for pool owners. While it’s true that you probably won’t need to use it during the summer to stay toasty, their appearance still makes them a great place to hang out. If you install one for the summer, then by the time the cold months do arrive, you’ll be all set!
Sitting on the edge of the pool or on the steps is great, but why not go step further? Underwater seating can be installed anywhere along the edge of your pool that you’d like it to be. This is especially helpful when you have young kids or pets who may need to get up out of the water more easily.
