Swimming Pool Design to Match Your House
If you’re in the early stages of planning your new swimming pool, you’ll have lots to think about. It’s important to remember that even if you’re really keen to swim every single day, you’ll probably spend much more time looking at the pool from your house than you will spend actually using it. For this reason, the design and location of the pool is vital, especially if you’re lucky enough to own a beautiful property such as an old country mansion.
For homeowners of period or characterful buildings, the last thing you want to do is ruin the look and feel of your property by constructing something that simply doesn’t fit with the rest of its surroundings. Stunning as they are, sometimes the sleek, contemporary appearance of modern swimming pools is just not what’s called for, depending on the house and the taste of the homeowner.
Thankfully, pool builders are sensitive of the needs of property owners to preserve the authentic identity of their property, and if you’re planning a pool for an old country house, for example, we can work with you to ensure that your swimming pool doesn’t look out of place. We treat every project, and every customer, as an individual, and we collaborate with our customers to achieve a result that everyone can be proud of. There are lots of ways to either make a swimming pool into a statement, a dramatic addition to your backgarden which demands attention, or alternatively make it blend into the background, or to design the pool building in a way which makes it seem as though it’s always been there.
Consider where about on your property your pool will be most effective: should it be near the house, or even attached to it like an extension, or should it be set apart, a private area for individual practice or intimate evening swims?
There are a huge variety of style, shapes and finishes available, and no two pools will ever been exactly the same. If you’re planning an indoor pool, you could work with your building contractor to ensure the colour of the brickwork matches your existing property, or that the style of the roofing is similar, for example. For an outdoor pool, choose coping stones or paving which tones in with your house, and have the rest of your garden landscaped to make the pool as prominent as you’d like it to be.
