With swim season right around the corner, you may be finding yourself gazing out over your existing poolscape (or dreaming of a new one!) and wondering what tweaks and improvements can be made to enhance its beauty, design, and functionality. Tampa Bay Pools loves to inspire, which is why we have put together this quick list of five pool design trends for spring 2018.
Playing with Depth and Height
This year has seen a lot of different trends that involve playing with the depth and height of not only pools, but other poolscape features in and around your outdoor living space.
- Elevated pools (pools built into a second or higher level of your home)
- Elevated spas (this is a recurring trend that is continuing to grow this year)
- Sunken outdoor kitchens and seating areas (these kitchens share a wall with your pool or spa, providing you with extra counter space for a swim-up bar)
- Walls which incorporate fire and water features
Separated Concrete Pavers
Forget the classic “poured concrete” look. Separated concrete pavers placed upon grass, gravel or turf will keep your pool design fresh and visually engaging with a modern appeal.
Free-flowing pool shapes will always be a favorite, but expect to see a lot more straight lines and crisp corners in Clearwater pool designs this year. Aesthetically pleasing and offering loads of luxurious appeal, geometric pool designs can match the architecture of almost any home and outdoor living space.
Smart Pool Technologies
Pool and spa automation is continuing to dominate the industry. Unlike ever before you will be able to find a number of affordable smart pool technologies, all of which offer differing levels of remote control over different features of your pool and spa, like:
- Running your in-pool cleaning system
- Adjusting the temperature of your pool and spa
- Controlling features in and around the pool (waterfalls, deck jets, fire pits, etc.)
Focus on Hydrotherapy
Research stating the importance of hydrotherapy continues to pile up, which has also led to a number of interesting developments in the pool and spa industry. Swim spas are a growing trend, but what is an even larger trend are the many jet and seating options available in both portable hot tubs and custom spas so that you can enjoy a tailored therapeutic massage in the comfort of your own backyard.
