How to choose the right pool design?
Deciding that you want to have a top-quality swimming pool installed by the professionals at Gibson Family Pools is an easy decision. But sometimes it’s difficult to choose an option. It’s safe to say that Barrier Reef Pools offers an impressive range of pool designs. The first step is to decide which type of pool will best suit your yard and your needs.
Designed to suit families with yards of all shapes and sizes, family pools are a versatile choice. Family pool designs feature varied pool depths to suit younger and older children, enough size to fit a large number of people and are big enough for fitness based activities.
If your priority is being able to use your new pool for training and exercise purposes, a lap pool may be the best option for you. Designed specifically to provide unmatched exercise opportunities from the comfort of your backyard, our lap pool options include eight and twelve metre lengths, depending on your preference and the size of your yard. Lap pools are also perfect for relaxation, especially at the end of a period of intense training. If you want to learn more about this pool type, check out our blog about how much lap pools cost!
Throughout Australia, houses are constantly growing in size, and people are looking to make more use of their backyards. With a plunge pool, you don’t need to lose a significant amount of your yard, as these pool designs can be effectively tucked into a corner! Optimise your lifestyle while making efficient use of your space.
If you’re less interested in the physical side of swimming, why not opt for the relaxing side? A spa allows you to enjoy the benefits after a hard day at work. If you can’t decide where your priorities lie, we’ve got you covered, as Barrier Reef Pools also offer a swim spa range, meaning you’ll never have to choose.
