The Best Pool Features to Install in 2020
Over the years, new trends in swimming pool remodeling and construction have become unique and more customized to fit the needs of each homeowner. Regardless of your specific taste, you can transform your pool into a resort-style pool setting that exudes luxury and elegance. Whether you’re looking for a few additions or constructing a new swimming pool from scratch, consider buying these amazing pool features this season.
Vanishing Edges for an Unforgettable Appearance
Now is your chance to bring some elegance to your swimming pool. A vanishing edge is one of the top trends in spa design, with many homeowners feeling inspired by the infinity pools they may have enjoyed while on vacation at luxury resorts. Just like an infinity pool, a vanishing edge can create a private view from your spa with water cascading into the pool below for an alluring waterfall effect.
Pool waterfalls are an exciting addition because they add value, sophistication, and a natural element to your luxury swimming pool. Waterfalls also add a WOW factor that will act as a focal point in your backyard, since it’ll capture your guests’ attention. Moreover, pool waterfalls offer practical purposes like ensuring the proper filtration of water as well as preventing algae from forming.
What are Scuppers in Pool Design?
Typically attached to a pool’s wall, scuppers deliver waterfall-like effects and allow water to flow into the main pool area, often from a spa area. You can add several waterfalls to one wall, which will show a mesmerizing visual effect. Scuppers – as well as spouts – come in a diverse variety of shapes and sizes from materials such as copper, stainless steel, oil-rubbed bronze, and stone. You can also install scuppers alongside other pool features such as water bowls and fountains attached to the pool’s wall. Whether your pool has a modern or dynamic design, we guarantee that it’ll elevate your pool’s aesthetic beauty.
Illuminate Your Pool with Lighting Features
Installing pool lighting features can transform your oasis and elevate its appearance. Various pool lighting features can create a unique ambiance and highlight the beautiful architecture in and around your luxury pool. You can amplify your backyard experience by installing lighting that meets your needs and expectations. Some lighting options to consider include:
- Surface-Mounted Underwater LED Pool Lights – While these lights stick out further than the pool wall does, they are still great options for pool lighting
- Surface-Mounted Underwater Halogen Pool Light – A more affordable option than LED lights, Halogen lights will drive your energy bills higher. While easy to install, make sure you turn these lights off when they aren’t in use
- Submersible LED Lights – These pool lights do not require any installation and sink to the bottom of the pool to illuminate the surface area of the water
