Upcoming Swimming Pool Design Trends


If this is the year you're finally going to take the plunge to create the backyard pool environment of your dreams, you don't need to take a one-size-fits-all approach. The latest pool trends combine a concern for the environment with the desire to make a poolside oasis, where homeowners can eat, relax, and enjoy guests’ company. Here are the top pool trends for the coming season that you can choose from or combine to create a unique setup for your backyard pool paradise complete with food, drinks, and beautiful design.


Energy-Efficient Pools

Many home improvement trends this year center around upgrades that are energy efficient and have less of an impact on the environment. With efficient swimming pool pumps and even solar powered yard lights around your pool, you can reduce your electricity costs and make your pool more sustainable. We have a range of options to make your swimming pool have less of an impact. The most significant is to plan your swimming pool construction in Atlanta with energy conservation in mind and select the devices to circulate and filter pool water that are hyper-efficient.


Pool Patios with Eating Areas

Another popular design for home pools is to make a pool patio area with fireplaces, bars, and even full kitchens. Near your pool, you can design eating areas that will make food preparation and enjoyment a cinch. If you like to grill, a level surface with a place for countertops will work to set up a grill and the space to chop meat and vegetables. Many homeowners also choose to put in a wood-burning stove or fire pit when they design custom pools near Atlanta, so they can make fresh pizza or roast hot dogs during the calm evenings they spend lounging by the pool.



Decorative Pool Designs

One more trend is to create pools with decorative or fanciful themes. Some homeowners like to incorporate glass tiles or natural stone into their pools to make them look like mermaid grottos or pirate coves. Besides pool materials, you can also request landscaping like small palms or plants that will go around the pool and patio you decide to install. Around your home, you should be able to create the types of environments that will make you feel at ease and give you the opportunity to plan amazing events. Taking the extra time and effort to make a fully designed pool environment, rather than just an area for a quick dip, will make your swimming pool designs in Atlanta extra unique.
