So what's hot in pool design trends? A plethora - that's what. For starters, interior pool finish options for gunite pools are more diverse now than ever before - options ranging from aggregate finishes to pebble finishes and then there are glass tile interior finish options too - depending on your budget. All are beautiful, it just depends on the look you're after. Another hot trend is adding a sun ledge to your pool. Sun ledges provide a shallow area in the pool for adults to relax and lounge - and for the little ones to safely play and splash under adult supervision. The ledge also provides a place for the adults to perch and oversee the munchkins in the deeper areas of the pool - all while staying cool. You can do other things with sun ledges too. You can add an umbrella sleeve which provides a place to park your umbrella, giving you that much needed shade on hot, sunny days. What else can you do with a swimming pool sun ledge?
You can add water features like bubbler fountains... not only do they look good but kids love to play in them too. More pool design trends include the design itself - more so along the lines of the pool, literally - clean and modern lines that is. Swimming pool automation is another huge trend in swimming pool design. Let's face it, technology may have made our lives easier - but it's also made us all much busier too. Automation can cover a variety of aspects from pool maintenance to chemical balancing, and control systems too. With our automated control systems, scheduling and operating your filtration cycles, heating, pool, chemical managment and more will be blissfully automatic. Not to mention you can monitor and change your pool's system settings with your smart devices. The list of pool design trends goes on and you can stay on top of the latest information by reading more below and viewing photographs you'll want to see.
Swimming Pool Interior Finish Options
As we mentioned previously, you have a variety of options to choose from when it comes to pool interior finishes.
There are aggregate interior finishes, pebble finishes, and glass tile. Each type comes in a variety of different colors - or maybe even a combination of colors. Below are some images of pools we've built showing the different pool finishes available. The pebble and aggregate pool finishes contain natural materials and it's their nature that shade variations will occur throughout an application.
