Top Custom Spa Designs Trending in 2016
A pool is a major investment, and it can greatly improve the value of your home and your enjoyment in it. When you are ready to add a pool to your Tempe Arizona home, it is important that you choose a beautiful design that will best complement your home and that will give you the most enjoyment from the pool for years to come.
Browsing the latest custom spa designs can give you some ideas for what you might like. Here are some of the top designs trending for 2016 to give you some inspiration:
Glass tile has a beautiful, sparkling appearance that matches the glistening water quite well. You can choose shades of blue and green for an aquatic look, or you can mix and match other shades for a unique design.
Glass holds up quite well over time, and it is easy to maintain. You can line the top edge of your pool interior with glass tile, or you can put glass tile in key places along the outside of the pool or even on its floor.
Pools often stand out against the landscaping in the yard. The latest trends incorporate the pool into the natural landscape by choosing a natural shape and accessories.
For example, a natural-looking pool can have an organic shape like a pond, and it can be surrounded by rock and pebble landscaping and plenty of native shrubs and other plants. With the right design, the pool can look just like a small garden pond — except with stairs.
Your custom pool and spa builder can let you know what features would be necessary to achieve this design and what would be possible for your yard.
Infinity edges have been popular for awhile now, and they continue to trend in 2016.
An infinity edge allows the water in the pool to run right over the side. The water seems to go on without end, which gives this design its name.
Infinity edge pools are very sophisticated and stylish, and they are popular at high-end resorts and in celebrity homes. Adding one to your home will instantly elevate its look.
You don’t always want to go for a swim. Sometimes, you just want to relax and soak up the sun. However, if you do that during the Tempe summer, you likely won’t be able to take more than 10 or 20 minutes of it before you become unbearably uncomfortable.
Tanning ledges allow you to lie in the pool so you can cool off while you relax. You can either lay directly on the edge, or you can place a chair in a zero entry or a wide edge and lay on the chair. Either way, you’ll have a soothing bed of water on which to relax.
Water features can make your pool a soothing oasis and create interesting visual appeal for your backyard.
Water features can include small fountains in the middle of the pool or along the edges, or they can include large, ornate additions like a waterfall against a natural rock formation. The possibilities are as big as your space and budget allow.
Why put your fire bowl on the pool deck so that you have to get out of the water to enjoy the warmth? You can put a fire pit right in the middle of your pool so that you can enjoy the ambient heat while you swim on a crisp evening. The fire also casts a beautiful glow on the water that you will love.
You can also place a fire bowl on the edge of your pool in a built-in feature. It makes the fire bowl look more integrated with the pool, which improves the design.
You may not like all these designs or features, but just learning about these trends can give you some ideas that you might not have had otherwise.
