Swimming pool at the backyard is an ideal amenity for people of all ages. It becomes the center of attraction for your family especially with the children spending most of their time in the waters. Many homeowners view the swimming pool in the backyard as a vivid artistic element and the essence of the whole landscape. The pool if includes water features, specialty material, unconventional lighting and other contemporary designs and features then it casts a poignant significance on your outdoor living ambience; specially at night when it gets illuminated. There are several innovative ways to give your custom concrete pools an offbeat and unconventional look, few of which are discussed here:
Shape of your pool
Before accessorizing your favorite swimming pool, it is required to determine the shape and the type of your pool. Choosing a unique shape is an important task for the homeowners. There are a variety of ways a swimming pool can be shaped so it is better to get some ideas on the classic and popular pool shapes. As the pool is positioned next to your house, its shape should go well with the house architecture. Some of the most common shapes are the rectangle pools, kidney-shaped pools, freeform pools, L-shaped pools, Figure-8 pools, lazy L-shaped swimming pools. You can choose among these shapes for your pool matching the architectural design of your home.
Accessories for your pool
After selecting the shape of your swimming pool, you can choose different materials to accessorize it to bring out the attractive look. The color of the pool tiles should remain achromatic so that it blends well with the overall architecture of the pool with stone masonry, decks and dark bottoms. The tiles should resemble the stone in texture and color. With the waterline tiles being neutral with natural beige, glass or white along with turquoise water seems like a perfect combination for your pool. However, the glass can also be replaced with the more resilient dense porcelain.
Rocks and artificial stones can be decorated alongside the pool with plants to give the rock work a more realistic contemplation. The water features of the custom concrete pool can be treated exclusively with falling water. The sound of the falling water gives the static pool a look of an alluring fountain. The water feature of the pool should be made in a way to make it visible both from indoors rooms and outdoor living areas. The elements for your pool should share similar material palettes and color to accentuate the beauty of the landscape. Also, few of the plants that add great color and beauty to your poolside without causing a mess are day lil, agapanthus, fortnight lily, and heavenly bamboo.
It is highly recommended to hire a professional pool contractor to enable you choose the right combination of accessories and custom concrete pool materials. Getting it done all by yourself will not prove to be a good idea in the long run as it may seem to be a bad investment.
