Now that we’re well fed and relaxed after the holidays, one thing is for sure. This is the time that we are all looking for ideas on how we can make our mark on 2021 and get the most out of the backyard swimming season.
So, while you’re on the hunt for ways to keep your backyard looking fresh, here’s some of the trends in pool design that will be on show this swimming season.
Smart Pool Lighting
Lighting in pools has come a long way. Technology is so advanced that we now have the ability to customise our lighting to fit the mood of any event from the touch of our phones. Automated, colour-changing lights can add personality to your water features and wow family and friends with, synchronized coloured light shows. With this technology becoming more popular, expect to see it popping up in more Western Australian backyards this year.
Extended Bench Seating
Most of us start the year in holiday mode where we socialise a lot and spend time around the pool. Sometimes the summer heat is too much to be out of the water and that is when you understand why bench seating has become so popular in modern pools.
By choosing a model that features a bench seat, your pool immediately becomes an opportunity to socialise with friends, connect with family or just sit back and relax. Whether you’re watching the kids or hosting a summer pool party, the bench seat adds a whole new dimension to how you can use your pool.
As trips to exotic resorts are not on the menu at the moment, it makes sense that pool owners are trying to replicate that very experience at home. While a pool can be incredibly functional for swimming purposes, we also like to relax by the water and that’s why pool seating and ledge lounges will be in season.
Pools are increasingly being designed to accommodate semi-submerged seating for those pool owners that want to feel the water on their toes, but not necessarily get their hair wet. Expect to see plenty of WA locals tanning, reading or sipping a drink in the comfort of their own home while it’s warm outside.
On the surface, concrete might not seem like it lends much to backyard design, but there’s a lot you can do. Believe it or not, there are many decorative concrete options that make your pool shine. For example, some concrete options can mimic the appearance of other surfaces like wood or even tiling! These matte finishes look stunning and are also non-slip and safe for the whole family.
Concrete is a low-maintenance option that will make your pool surrounds modern and durable. You’ll be surprised by the results you can get, so it’s time to ask what your concrete can do for you?
