The Latest Luxury Design Features For Swimming Pools

What they aren't going to tell you is that you can get the same effect from many of their deluxe features without having to break your budget. Hey why should they tell you? They are in the business of making money!

Built In Jacuzzis On Swimming Pools

Built in swimming pools with an attached jacuzzi are all the rage. After all, the fact is that the majority of the time that you are going to use your swimming pool, it will be to simply relax in the jacuzzi. However; this one feature boosts the overall cost on swimming pools tens of thousand of dollars!

A Very Sensible and Affordable Option

Consider buying a separate prefabricated hot tub to set up on your patio. Remember that for a fraction of the cost of a built in attached hot tub you can pick up a deluxe model. Also keep in mind that it is far cheaper to heat hot tubs in the winter than it is to heat swimming pools!

Water Features and Rock Work On Swimming Pools

Water features and rock-work are also a trend in swimming pools that has come up on the radar screen in recent years. It's just a fact that big crusty boulders and trickling water lend a smooth and natural effect to the total look and feel of swimming pools.

More Rock Work For Less Money

Once again, great off the shelf water features can be purchased for a fraction of the cost online and they bring the same effect to your backyard pool area. As far as the rock work goes, when you have a landscaper use boulders in your landscaping rather the pool builder using them in the pool design, you can use much larger boulders and more of them at a fraction of the cost.
