Swimming Pool Design Tips


So you have decided to build your own swimming pool and turn that boring back yard into an oasis. But the exact details of what your pool will look like can be a little daunting. There are, after all, so many choices.

Before you even talk to a swimming pool company, it may help to take a look at some photos. After scanning the Internet for awhile, I came across a great website for this very thing.

It’s called Houzz, and it contains a treasure trove of images, not only about swimming pools, but all parts of your home. Here you will find 55,384 Pool Design Photos.(www.houzz.com/photos/pool)

Look them over and decide on some basics before talking with the contractor. Here are some things to consider;

  • overall size
  • shape
  • depth
  • type of material
  • lighting
  • deck material
  • deck colors
  • landscaping

The Houzz site’s thousands of pictures should help you zero in on all these factors. Then, when you begin your pool design, you will have a better idea of what is out there and what your choices really are.
