Integrating a swimming pool into your home can be a very rewarding decision, giving you something relaxing to come home to on hot summer evenings while also enhancing the value of your home. However, it’s important to plan the process of building a pool into your landscape to ensure the final look is consistent, functional and aesthetically pleasing. In this blog, we’ll investigate the best process to integrate various types of pool into the landscape of your Melbourne home –whether they’re courtyard, indoor or lap pools.
A courtyard pool is ideal for outdoor living areas with smaller spaces. They’re perfect for entertaining guests and will also significantly boost the resale value of your home. When thinking about installing one, you must first determine how long and wide your pool will be. This will help you determine whether or not the pool will be the focal point of your landscape.
Visual consistency between your courtyard pool and its surroundings is crucial for creating a stylish living area. For courtyards with a contemporary design, choose darker hues for your pool interiors – this will create a beautiful, sophisticated contrast. If your landscape is greener and has a more traditional design, we recommend lighter coloured pool interiors. This will accentuate the greenery and works extremely well with timber or wooden decking.
To add another dimension of ambience and elegance to your courtyard pool, install underwater LED lights- these are one of the hottest trends among Melbourne pool builders and will transform your night time entertaining in a fabulous way.
Indoor pools are perfect for people who want to use their pool 24/7, all year round. Indoor pools also require less maintenance than courtyard pools, as they are more shielded from the elements and detritus like leaves or rubbish being blown in. One of your first choices will be which type of paving you’ll use around the pool. It’s important that the material you choose is water resistant – wehighly recommend stone pavers, which fit seamlessly into just about any decor. If you’re feeling creative, experiment with the ceiling design and lighting. Once again, LED lighting in the indoor pool is a simple way to transform the entire landscape. You can also opt to add a Jacuzzi – you’ll feel like you’re in Vegas!
Lap pools are very functional. Their long and narrow lengths make them ideal for both backyards and indoor areas with limited space. Mosaic tiles are the safe and traditional choice for lap pool interiors but again, visual consistency is essential. If the area around the pool tends toward contemporary design, use dark tiling to create contrast with the landscape. When your landscape is greener and you have wood decking, use light blue or azure tiling – this creates the classic ocean-resort look! You can also line plants along its length to give your landscape stunning visual symmetry, as well as providing privacy to swimmers using the pool.
