Here in Florida we really get to enjoy the use of our pools. Whether to cool off in the summer heat, or enjoy with your family after the mandatory summer BBQ’s, rarely does a pool feel neglected in the sunshine state.
With this being said, sometimes your dream home doesn’t set the ideal scene for your dream pool. If you’ve found a home you love with a lack of pool or something that equates to a cemented hole in the ground – don’t be disheartened! We have listed several creative ideas to help you get the most out of your pool design.
UPDATE YOUR TILES
So you’ve found a gorgeous property or your own perfect ‘fixer-upper’, but the pool is leaving a lot to be desired? An effective way of modernizing a dated pool is to replace the tiles with a modern alternative. Think about replacing those over sized ceramic tiles in depressing beige to glittering small glass tiles. Not only do they reflect the light and make your pool glimmer, they are a low maintenance option too!
We love this beautiful example from Alpentile, winners of the 2015 Coverings Installation and Design Awards in Orlando.
CONSIDER MULTIPLE LEVELS
A steep inclined yard used to be the nightmare of pool design, but the arduous task of leveling land is no longer necessary. Multi level pools are now not only a problem solving exercise, they’re also super stylish and create a luxury resort feel in your own yard!
NOISE CANCELLING WATER FEATURE
If your home is near a busy road and you find the noise of the traffic less than tranquil, an ingenious solution is to install a soothing water feature. With the noise cancelling aspect of the water feature, you can enjoy your yard without the distraction of trucks rolling by.
Tired of blowing up pool inflatables – why not have permanent loungers put in for you and your family to relax on? Not only do they look sleek and spa-like, they are functional and perfect for entertaining.
