When it comes to pool design, every homeowner is looking for ways to make their inground pool stand out. From exciting and unique design features to hotel-luxe-style amenities and extras, there are many ways you can make your pool and surrounding pool area stand out. There are lots of ideas that are perfect for your needs while elevating it from the standard backyard swimming pool setup to a resort vibe. Read on for our top 5 pool design trends of 2022 that can make your pool stand out:
1. Bring Movement Via Shapes
Movement has long been a trending way to bring interest to backyard pools, and it was mostly brought to life via waterfalls and other moving water features. But our favorite way to take on this trend is the shape of your pool. Choose a unique shape for your pool beyond the standard rectangle or kidney. Round, wavy, and lazy-river-style pools can all be choices that add flow to the design of your pool.
You could even consider adding some life and movement via fire features. Couple with water, these contrasting elements are a great option if you’re looking to add a breathtakingly dynamic and energetic feature to their pool space.
2. Consider Different Depths
Utilizing a playful take on depth transitions in your pool can truly make your design stand out. Rather than traditional steps into a shallow end that grades to a deep end, consider adding a shelf ledge for in-water chairs along one end with steps to enter in the middle, and grading depth out towards both sides. That’s just one example though–the sky (or the ground?) is the limit!
3. Let Space Guide, Not Limit, You
If your available space for a pool is smaller than you might want, don’t be discouraged. Custom inground pools can be built for all different-sized backyards. These smaller pools, like a niche pool or cocktail pool, are smaller than traditional pools, but still perfect for all occasions. Whether outfitted with jets for a spa-like feel or a deep but small pool that’s great for fitness or relaxation, you can make your backyard dreams come true with a uniquely sized pool.
4. Functional & Beautiful Outdoor Living Space
Your outdoor living space can bring your entire pool area together. From quality patio furniture to outdoor kitchens, fire pits, fireplaces and more, it’s important to create a space that is both welcoming and relaxing, while also complementary to your poolscape. Work with your pool designer to determine the best outdoor living space additions for your area, and then outfit the space with quality furnishing and gorgeous colors that will elevate your entire area.
5. The Right Light Makes a Difference
Lighting plays a huge role in the overall look and feel of your poolscape. Your lighting exudes a certain ambiance, so it’s important to outfit your pool and surrounding landscape with the right choice. LED lighting is a popular choice because of its energy efficiency and brighter, longer-lasting lights. Then consider certain lighting sprinkled throughout your outdoor living space, be it in the landscaping or seating areas. Strategically placed lights truly create a most welcoming environment.
