Pool Remodeling Ideas

by Pool Builders on 05-12-2014 in Articles

Spring is the perfect season to remodel your pool. Why? Well, spring is right before the busy swimming-pool season known as summer and spring is the season of new beginnings and changes. Remodeling your pool will give it a fresh new look to reignite your excitement of welcoming summer. However, you might not be too sure on how exactly to change the look of your pool. There are a variety of interesting ways to remodel, such as having an infinity pool or adding a waterfall feature. Here are a few ideas to spark your creativity.

Infinity Edge

The infinity edge pool goes by many names including the negative edge, the vanishing edge and the zero edge pool. This style is mainly suited for backyards with a beautiful view. Many celebrities, such as Alex Rodriguez, Cindy Crawford, and Burt Reynolds, who have a house on top of a mountain or hill with a gorgeous view of the city tend to opt for this look. Luxurious hotels also tend to have infinity pools, particularly those in the tropics that have a view of the ocean, such as Ocean Manor Beach Resort in the Caribbean and Hotel Las Palmas in Mexico. Therefore, an infinity edge pool gives your home a more sophisticated and modern look. However, these types of pools can be fairly expensive and may not suit every pool.

Waterfalls

On the contrary, adding a waterfall feature can be done with just about any pool and is less expensive than adding an infinity edge. You can customize the waterfall's look to help create the atmosphere you want in your backyard. For example, if you want a modern look, then you can have a sleek waterfall coming out from a thin, silver, and futuristic fountain. On the other hand, if you are looking for a more natural look, you can have the classic waterfall with rocks or boulders. You can create just about any look you want by manipulating the waterfall's look. In addition, a waterfall produces a soothing sound. So, whenever you are looking for a getaway in your own backyard, you can easily relax by your pool's waterfall.

Free-Form Shape

Pools can come on all shapes and sizes. The pool shape that you choose can is the most identifying feature of your pool. Most pools are in the shape of a rectangle. However, you can make your backyard stand out by choosing a creative shape such as the shape of your favorite instrument, or the shape of the state you reside in, or even the shape of your favorite animal. One of the benefits of choosing an out-of-the-ordinary shape is it is a great conversation piece when you have guests over for a get-together. Since the shape of your pool is not something you can change easily and quickly, make sure that you choose an appropriate form that you will not get tired of a year from now. To prevent from wanting to change your pool shape later, you may want to consider a shape that has a lot of meaning to you. By picking a meaning shape, your pool shape means something important and is not to simply "look cool." This is probably the biggest pool remodeling service you can have done.

In conclusion, these are just three of the style features you can consider when remodeling your pool, but there are many more to choose from. To figure out which features you may want for your backyard, think about how much you want to spend on pool remodeling. Then you should think about what kind of look you want to give to your backyard and how pool remodeling can achieve or enhance that look.
