There is so much more to swimming pools than just a body of water. While the water itself is the crux of a pool, there are plenty of ways to enhance the look and feel of your Austin swimming pool to make it truly unique and highly enjoyable. These days, there are a number of trends that Austin swimming pool builders are adding to pools, as per the more sophisticated needs of the homeowners they serve. 

Here are just a few fabulous swimming pool trends that you may want to consider adding to your pool.

Dark Colors 

Dark hues on the interior of pools is an emerging trend that is being increasingly adopted by homeowners. Hues like charcoal, deep blues, and sometimes even black are being used for interior finishes to mimic the natural state of water bodies out in the wild. Plus, these colors go well with natural landscaping surrounding your pool, making it feel as though you’re frolicking in a lagoon out in the midst of Mother Nature.

Single Depth

While the traditional inground pool typically features a shallow end and a deep end, many homeowners are opting for single depth pools. Depending on what you will be using the pool for or how much space you have to work with, a single depth pool may work well. 

Pool Shelves

A great feature to consider for your pool is a sun shelf, which offers just about a foot of water depth. It’s enough to get you wet and keep you cool, but not deep enough for submersion. Sun shelves offer a great way to soak up the sun while in the pool and also offer a safe space for small children to splash around in. 

Pool Automation

Just about everything about your pool can be automated with “smart” technology, including the filter, cleaning system, temperature, and lighting. Just the tap of a button can fully automate your pool. 

Be sure to call your trusted Austin swimming pool builder when you’re ready to spruce up your pool!
