Customize Your Pool With These 4 Features
Hiring the right pool company can help deliver a pool taken straight out of your imagination. If you’ve already spent so much money designing and installing your luxurious dream pool, then you might as well make sure that no one in your neighborhood (or really anyone for that matter) has a similar pool. That’s right! Making sure that your new pool is 100% unique feels very satisfying, especially when your pool completes your own private backyard oasis. But we’re not just talking about the shape of your pool. Oh no! Customization goes well beyond that. If you want to customize your pool, consider adding these features.
1) Customized Lighting
Owners of luxury spas interested in customizing their experience typically incorporate vibrant lighting. Adding color to the spa experience can affect mood, provide unique visual ambiance, and contribute to your guests’ overall enjoyment. While entertaining in an outdoor living space, creating a custom light show or adjusting color to match the theme or mood of your event is a touch that many homeowners seek.
Today’s pool lighting can be set to a single color or to change colors. Many systems are programmable, allowing you to adjust speed, motion, and brightness. LED lights are the most popular choice due to their brightness, durability, and energy efficiency, with bulbs lasting up to 15 years.
2) Customized Hydrotherapy Features
Whether you are seeking to maximize relaxation or to promote healing from joint or muscle injuries, hydrotherapy is a feature that can support your wellness goals. Water has the ability to carry heat, improve blood flow, soothe people, and impart a calm and relaxing effect on the mind and body. Due to these properties, hydrotherapy can treat chronic conditions such as depression, nerve problems, headaches, muscle pain, sleep disorders, stress, and arthritis. These features can also provide effective treatment for short and long-term pain reduction.
3) Customized Glass Tiles
The interior of a swimming pool offers a large canvas that pool designers can tailor to your preferences. Due to the reflective nature of glass and water, tiles installed throughout the entire pool create a dazzling effect. This beautiful interior finish truly elevates the look of your swimming area and allows you to take advantage of the ever-changing play of light, water, and glass.
As long as they are installed properly and maintained well, glass tiles have the potential to last forever. The key lies in buying high-quality tile from a reputable manufacturer. Once you feel confident that you have the proper tile, installation is the next step in maximizing the life span of your pool interior. Since glass tile is more difficult to install than ceramic and many other types, it is important to work with a contractor who has experience with this type of installation.
4) A Customized Sun Shelf
A sun shelf describes a flat, shallow area in your pool, placed before the deep end of the swimming pool. Pool owners usually incorporate this feature into their pool to relax in the water without having to change into your swimsuit, or arduously maneuver yourself on a raft or pool float. Due to its shallow depth, a sun shelf is also an excellent area for small children, a family pet, or even someone who is handicapped to cool off during a hot summer afternoon. Furthermore, a sun shelf allows you to relax by your pool on a chilly day or early in the morning before the deeper end of the pool has a chance to warm up.
