What styles of bespoke pool should you go for?
Not every swimming pool is made the same and, if you’re planning a bespoke pool for your property, then there are some important decisions to make. Use and aesthetics are probably the two key features of any pool and the style that you opt for will have an impact on both. The style of your pool should make it easy to enjoy the water as you want to, whether that’s family fun or pool parties with your friends. You’ll also need to consider the way that the style of pool you choose fits with the aesthetics of the property and the landscaping in the surrounding area. So, what are your options when it comes to the different pool styles?
A resort style bespoke pool
The resort pool is designed to mimic the style of a swimming pool you might find at a luxury hotel in your favourite holiday spot. This pool is designed with clean and uncomplicated shapes and clever features such as dark tiles around the waterline that can create a floating effect. If you have dark colours on door frames or the windows of your property then these dark tiles can create aesthetic consistency. A resort style pool typically has vibrant blue-green tiles to create a tropical feel and may also have a bridge or walkway to connect pool to property.
A traditional bespoke pool
The traditionally designed pool is a simple rectangle that sits in an area surrounded by natural stone slabs. Its uncomplicated design is ideal for properties that have straightforward aesthetics and where the pool design should be simple and subtle. A traditional pool has a classic mosaic tile feature along the bottom of the pool and may have curved or straight set steps for entry and exit from the water. Water features are easy to add to a traditional pool if you’re looking for something distinguishing, to add interest, style or a bit of grandeur.
A retro bespoke pool
Think Palm Springs 1950s elegance and you’ll have a good idea of what your bespoke retro pool might look like. These designs tend to be flat and open, rectangular in shape and aren’t usually surrounded by any landscaping. Colour-wise retro pools are light and bright with white glass mosaic tiles at the waterline and uncomplicated detailing. Underwater seating can be a perfect addition to a retro pool to make it even easier to lay back and lounge in the water on a hot day.
A contemporary bespoke pool
Design is pretty fluid for a contemporary pool, from an unusual curved shape to the highly popular lap pool. Infinity edges, spa features and even coloured lighting add extra character to a contemporary pool and decking is often a popular choice for the surrounding surface. Contemporary pools can be light and sparkling or dark and lagoon-like, depending on the tile colour options and on personal choice.
