With summer just around the corner, many of us are looking forward to getting into the water again. There’s nothing quite like spending a hot summer day or night in your personal backyard pool. If your pool is looking a little worse for wear, however, or you have been planning on installing a pool in your backyard before summer, then take a look at some of the top pool trends you can expect to see this year.
1) Ambient Lighting
Lighting can do wonders for your pool area. Some well placed LED lighting will give you just the right amount of illumination, without being too harsh. This is a great way to transform your pool into a beautiful nighttime escape. With the ever-expanding technology available, you can expect to find lighting that can change colours to fit your pool and mood.
2) Bringing Nature In
Introducing natural elements into your pool area is one of the biggest trends at the moment. It’s a great way to turn your pool into a sanctuary, with many people choosing to style their pools so that they feel like they’re in a tropical retreat. Lounging around the pool just got even more relaxing.
3) Rain Curtains
Rain curtains, also known as water curtains or rain descents, are a fantastic trend that features a solid curtain of water cascading into your pool. This waterfall-like effect is not only visually appealing, but the sound of running water is also incredibly calming and can enhance the tranquillity of your sanctuary.
4) Darker Interior Colouring
Your pool interior doesn’t always have to be bright blue. A recent trend of painting your interior in darker colours, such as dark grey or navy, has become increasingly popular. These darker colours evoke the feeling of swimming in a lagoon and have the added effect of making smaller pools feel much larger. The darker colours are also great at holding heat so your pool will be much easier to warm up.
5) Smaller pools
You don’t have to have a massive backyard to be able to enjoy having your own private pool. Smaller pools have become increasingly popular and pool builders are now designing smaller pools that can be customised to your backyard. Styles such as lap pools have become in demand due to their slim build and sleek designs. Cocktail pools are also catching on because they can often be fitted into smaller irregular shaped backyards. They are often cheaper and more eco friendly than your typical pool. This makes them a huge hit for anyone looking to add a pool to their property.
