Start Planning Your Pool Now

If you’re considering installing a new pool this year, now is the time to start the planning process. Depending on what type of pool you install, it can take up to six weeks for the installation alone — and that’s after you decide on a contractor, pick a design, choose tiles and coping, get permits, and so on.

There was a time when the pool planning process was a bit simpler. Your basic pool was generally a white concrete rectangle surrounded by four feet of additional concrete decking. Coping choices were limited to a couple of standard options, and the tile trim was typically some shade of blue. Although some homeowners still opt for the classic pool, the trend in modern poolscapes is to create an environment that is an extension of the overall outdoor living space. The outdoor kitchen connects to the outdoor living room that transitions to the pool deck…all as one continuous, flowing design. Design choices are as plentiful and unique as each individual homeowner, allowing for the creation of personalized poolscapes that are a reflection of the homeowner’s personality.

To begin planning your pool design, the first step is to decide on an overall design scheme. What’s your pool personality? Here are a few ideas to help jumpstart the planning process.

Classically Tailored

If you typically go for more traditional designs that you feel will stand the test of time, these pool designs offer a modern twist on the cobbled look of a bygone era.

The Natural Look

Perhaps you prefer for your pool to look as though it’s part of the natural landscape. These designs evoke the sense of a backyard oasis.

Ultra-Contemporary

Maybe you gravitate to the modular look or love clean, crisp lines. If so, then these modern pool designs will appeal to you.

  1. I have done some research on the different styles and types of pools. My conclusion is that the surrounding area of a pool is almost as important as the pool itself with regards to the overall appearance and feel of the pool.
