Finding The Perfect Layout for Your Backyard Pool

Finding The Perfect Layout for Your Backyard Pool

If you and your family have made the exciting decision to get a pool, it’s time to begin the planning process. Deciding on the layout for your pool is a fun but challenging process. The right layout depends on how often you’ll use the pool and how much space you have.

You will also need to consider your property’s layout and the other decorative features in your backyard. You may also want some cool pool features that are truly one of a kind. Here are a few practical tips for finding the swimming pool layout plan that’s right for you.

Swimming Pool Shapes and Sizes

The size and shape of your pool can make a huge difference in the way your yard looks. A rectangular pool is traditional, but there are several original accents you can add. Instead of the standard rectangular shape, you can make the entrance to the pool look more like a beach or ocean. Infinity openings make the pool entrance look like a natural shore. You can achieve this look with concrete or fiberglass.

Your contractor will also work with you to help you decide the main purpose of the pool. A larger pool in a rectangle or square could work well if you have a specious yard and entertain often. A rectangular pool with rounded edges is a creative take on a standard pool. This design also gives the pool an elegant resort feel.  If you’re using the pool for athletic purposes, it’s a good idea to have as much pool space as possible. If you don’t have small children and want to use the pool mainly for relaxation, circular or triangular pools are a stylish idea. You can even ask about spa or hot tub designs. These smaller pool options can be used for therapeutic purposes. They can be used to soothe the muscles and even prepare the body for a more restful night’s sleep.

Swimming Pool Layouts and Designs

Once you decide the shape and size of your pool, you’ll need to determine the overall layout. If the pool will be the feature attraction in your yard, it should be in the center of the yard. This will ensure that it’s not too close to your home, but is also a  comfortable distance from your back door. You can also work with your contractor to have your pool deck connected to your patio. This allows guests to seamlessly go from the pool to the seating area. There are several stone, mosaic, fiberglass, brick and concrete materials to choose from for this process. The right deck and pool border materials can make your outdoor entertaining space just as appealing as your home’s interior. If you want shrubs or trees around the pool, your contractor will give you information about how to position these plants. Other design elements can include fountains and places to install permanent seating around the pool. Working with a professional team will make it easier to choose the design elements that are both practical and stylish.
