Congratulations! You’re finally planning to build a swimming pool in your backyard. Before you get started, though, it’s important to realize the need for thorough planning to make the project a success. To help you with the planning process, here are some tips for you.
Choose a shape
Start by determining the best shape for your pool. There are plenty of options, such as round, oval, figure 8, L-shape, or any irregular shape you fancy. Remember to consider the shape, size, and orientation of your backyard. Go for traditional shapes if you want a simple, modest plunge area.
If you want it to look and feel more personal, go for the shape that suits your style preference. Dolphin Pools & Spas and other pool builders in Utah can customize the shape based on your preferences.
Think about the features
To get the best out of your swimming pool, you must already have in mind the exact look and feel of the area. While your pool contractors can help you, it pays to have a say on the area’s design to make it more personal. Think about the features you wish to see — a Jacuzzi area, fountains, jets, waterfalls, glass fence, stone features, etc.
If you have enough money to spend, never hesitate to make your pool area extra special. Consider installing a deck, setting up outdoor furniture, or perhaps a humble fire pit on one corner. How about a hammock area or small outdoor kitchen?
Pool lighting is another feature you wouldn’t want to skip. This is especially important when you plan to use the area for evening parties or simply when the idea of night swimming excites the family. Also, note that pool lighting is not just about aesthetics, it is also for safety and security.
A backyard pool project can be exciting and it’s understandable that you wish to finish it as soon as possible. Never rush it, though, and take time planning the project thoroughly. This way, you can make sure that the project runs smoothly and gives you possibly the best pool in the neighborhood.
