You’ve been planning to build a swimming pool for many years, but somehow it hasn’t happened. It probably didn’t pan out well on your first try or the timing wasn’t right or you didn’t have enough money several years ago. But things have changed, and now your plan of building a swimming pool on your property finally got the green light.
If you’re planning to build a pool and you’re looking for swimming pool designs, then Eco Pools has got you covered. Take a look at some of the best swimming pool designs we’ve curated so you can take inspiration from them.
A pocket pool
Compact pocket pools are ideal for homes located in the middle of the city. Choose a simple square pool located at one corner of your backyard, or a more unconventional half-circle. Because of its size, it’s ideal for homeowners who just want to take a refreshing dip during summer instead of swimming laps. Go for a sandstone deck that creates a nice contrast against the pool’s turquoise water. Verdant landscaping also lends a sense of privacy to the pool.
Keeping it traditional
A simple rectangular swimming pool never goes out of style. Concrete rectangular pools don’t take up too much space, making it perfect for urban or suburban Brisbane homes alike. Simply put some nice lounge chairs near the pool and you’re good to go.
Turn the edge into a bar
If one section of your property is higher than the other, then it’s best to construct a semi-above-ground swimming pool and use one edge as a bar. Just put some barstools in front of the edge to transform it. Now you can hang out with family or friends while swimming or simply sitting in front of the pool.
An island-inspired indoor pool
You don’t have to build an extremely large pool just to enjoy the sunny weather. Rather, you can have Eco Pools customise the design of an island-inspired indoor pool. It should have a unique shape, as well as a compact natural stone grotto at the edge. Add in some tropical landscaping, and enclose it with a screen to prevent leaves and other debris from falling in the water.
A simple rectangular pool with a wider deck
There are times when you just want to enjoy the outdoors while hanging out beside the pool. In this case, it’s best to build a wider deck where you can put some lounge chairs and some umbrellas to protect you from the heat of the sun.
A tanning platform in the pool
A tanning platform on one side of the pool is great if you don’t want to stray far from the poolside. Just set some pool lounge chairs on the platform and enjoy the breeze outside after taking a dip.
Swimming pool fun
Swimming is not the only activity you can do in a pool. Our designers at Eco Pools can customise yours and add some elements that your kids will love. This can include a slide, a cascade, and a basketball hoop.
A pool with a view
Take advantage of the scenery by having a swoon-worthy infinity pool constructed. This is especially perfect for homes constructed near the beach or in mountainous areas.
