Hot Summer months have you stuck indoors? Get out and enjoy an amazing new in ground or above ground pool. Having a pool in your backyard is the ultimate in outdoor enjoyment. Being able to step outside to take a plunge or maybe hope in your custom hot tub to enjoy a starry night, is a luxury most homeowners would die for.
There are so many different options when it comes to having a custom pool built for your home. First off you are going to want to think about the shape of your new pool. Will swimming laps be a regular thing or do you just plan to use it for having fun? This will help you decide if you want a standard rectangular (straight edged) pool or a kidney (rounded edge) shapped recreation area. Decide on if you like the look and feel of tile for the bed/flooring or if smooth concrete is more your style. The most overlooked decision is accessories. Maybe you want a fun slide for your kids to enjoy, in water seating for a poolside bar, fountains or waterfalls, diving boards or realistic rocks to jump from. All of these will play an important part in your new outdoor recreation area.
