When you have a swimming pool, safety should be your most important consideration. You can add beautiful structures that wow and amaze swimmers—as long as safety features are in place first.
At KrisCo Aquatech Pools and Spas we design and build Free-form Natural style Swimming Pools and Spas as well as linear/geometric swimming pools in traditional styles as well as stunning “vanishing edge” styles.
Linear or geometric pools provide a sharp, clean look that may be accomplished with some combination of the following design styles and features:
If you have a small or oddly-shaped yard, you might feel that a pool just isn’t possible. However, many tiny yards can house a beautiful pool that is not only functional but also the visual focal point of the space.
Don’t feel like choosing a small pool means you are settling for less than the best. Large sprawling pools are not always the best solution for your lifestyle. Pools don’t need to be large to provide a good time. Keep in mind that, unless you are frequently hosting large parties with avid swimmers, a small pool can easily meet your daily needs for a cool, calming swim.
Smaller pools are easier to maintain, simply because there is less water to filter and less surface area to clean. A small pool can also be great for a tight budget—it costs less to build, chemically treat, and heat a small pool. For the average family, a well-designed pool will provide hours of enjoyment, even if the size is reduced.
Here are some design ideas to consider when you only have a small space to work with.
- Clean straight lines
- A basic or combination of geometric shapes (squares, rectangles etc.)
- Concrete, brick, bluestone, flagstone decking
- Bull-nose pavers or tumbled edge coping at the pool edge
- Simple, clean, classic water features, deck jets and/or waterfalls
- Ceramic, glass or mosaic tile at the water-line
