A swimming pool is a lifetime investment. As a homeowner, staying up to date with the latest swimming pool trends will not only help you improve your pool’s functionality, it will also make a practical  addition to your backyard. The following high end trends will make your pool the focus of any outdoor oasis.

Some of the luxury swimming pool trends to watch out for include:

Knife edged pools

Also referred to as a perimeter-overflow pool, this type of pool fits the aesthetics of most homes. Unlike the infinity edge look, knife edged pools allows water to spill 360 degrees on all sides by giving the pool an elevated appearance. Most sit flush with the deck. This type of swimming pool design allows water to spill in a catch basin which re-circulates.

Vanishing edges

Installing a pool with vanishing edges is an excellent way to add some luxury and ambiance to your backyard. Great for elevated pools with great views, the water flows into a catch basin below and it is recycled back into the pool. If you’re looking to spend more time outdoors, entertain friends and family or just relax with a great view, the vanishing edge pool would be an awesome fit.

Glass tiling

New pools are increasingly featuring glass tiling.  This type of tiling has an indecent shine which provides a unique accompaniment to any pool. Furthermore, glass tiling outperforms porcelain and ceramic tiles when it comes to utility. For a seamless look, you can choose glass tiles in a variety of styling options and sizes.

Lounging ledges

There is nothing as relaxing as spending a lazy Sunday afternoon in your pool. A lounging ledge provides a shallow area that is chic, where you and your family can spend time on a sunny day.

Water features

A lot of people are now embracing water features for their pools. You can choose to install a fountain, rain curtain, or even a waterfall.

These are some of the trends that can make your swimming pool more relaxing and fun. Contact a custom Austin pool building company today to turn your daydreams into a reality.
