Pool Construction: Knowing What You Want

Pool Construction: Knowing What You Want
January 4, 2018 sdcpm

When you’re ready to put in a swimming pool, you have to sit down and understand what the process really involves from start to finish. The key is knowing what you want. In order to have the best possible experience, you’ll want to work out every little detail before you begin the process. Take a look at what you should know.


What’s Out There 

Keep up to date on all of the latest styles, materials, and technologies so that you can have a better idea of what it is that you would want, and what would work for you. Start a list of pool features that interest you, or even put together a lookbook that you can refer to.  You can print out pictures that you find online, or get ideas from friends and family. Make sure to factor in things like decking, lighting, entertaining space, water features, and more. Anything that you can come up with to show your builder will help to make your visions a reality.


Matching the Rest of Your Home 

Take a good look at what’s surrounding where the pool will be, including your landscaping and the design of your home. This will help you decide if you should go for something natural, modern, or more on the elegant side. You’ll want your existing living space and your new pool to complement each other.



You’ll have to decide on the exact placement of your pool. You can even lay out your pool by using something such as a garden hose to get a better idea of space. Figure out how close to your house you want the pool, as well as how much space you want for entertaining and landscaping around your pool.
