Things to Consider When Building a Pool
Deciding to build a new pool in Nashville & Bowling Green can be an exciting time for you and your family. At first, it feels like the only limitation is your own imagination. Ambitious soon-to-be pool owners pull out all the stops, only to realize that they had not considered important factors during the design phase.
Remember that your pool’s design affects much more than just how it looks. Design can impact maintenance and how you are able to use your pool. Certain considerations like the shape and size of your yard can also determine how successful your planned design will be in a real setting.
Keeping these factors in mind, here are some tips to help make your new pool design and construction experience everything you want it to be.
Visualization Is Key
Ever say something out loud that sounded much better in your head? Writing it down beforehand might have helped. Similarly, the pool design in your imagination may not be everything you had hoped when you see what it would look like in action. Even when our instincts are near perfect, visualization can allow us to tweak our design ideas in order to make them better.
Homeowners can use tools like our MYSTAYCATION BUILDER tool to create their ideal pool design. When you have a clearer idea of what you want, it helps our team to understand what you are looking for.
Your Yard Has Some Ideas of Their Own
Your yard is your canvas when installing a new pool, take into account its shape and topography during your design. Also, remember factors like your back porch or landscaping. For instance, you may not want mature trees too close to the water unless floating leaves are your pool décor of choice.
The best pools blend form and function seamlessly, so take into account how you want to use your pool when designing. Want to swim laps? Opt for a more rectangular, lengthy shape. Want kids and grandkids to be able to play? Consider a wide tanning ledge or shallow end feature.
Remember that the shape of your pool can affect maintenance, too, so pool owners who want simpler maintenance should opt for simpler design shapes.
Consider the Future
We cannot predict the future with great accuracy, but we can anticipate what happens over time. We may encounter accessibility issues as we get older, so our pools should be easy to enter and exit. Our kids will grow up, so a pool that is completely shallow may not get as much use as we hoped. Then again, our kids will have kids, so a pool that is completely deep may be unsafe for small children. And, of course, we have to take resale value into account unless we plan on staying in our home forever.
Try and think about how your needs or wants will change into the future, and design your pool for long-term enjoyment rather than short-term wish fulfillment.
