Pool Trends for 2016

Publication date : Saturday, February 20th, 2016

Who’s excited for a brand new pool season? We sure are! As you get yourself ready for the spring season, it’s helpful to know what the latest pool trends are. They may inspire you to do something different with your own pool!


Let’s get started with some of the newest pool trends for 2016.


Infinity Pools


Infinity pools feature a vanishing edge that make them look they go on forever. Infinity pools are visually stunning, and the one edge blends in with the horizon, giving it a truly unique look. The construction is on the more sophisticated side, and the pools are designed to complement a higher-end landscape. If you do choose to build an infinity pool, make sure you hire an experienced installer, as these pools require special construction, hydraulics and plumbing.


Natural Pools


Natural pools are all about nature! They do an excellent job of bringing in elements of nature so that they look as natural as possible. You may see a natural pool that is surrounded with plants, stones, rocks or shallow water. These pools operate differently than a regular pool, too. They use plants to filter out the water and keep it clean rather than a filtration system.


Backyard Spas


Spas are popular places to be after a long week at work, but why pay the high price when you can simply enjoy one in your own backyard? That’s the thought that more homeowners have when looking to upgrade their yard. Attached spas are a nice addition to a backyard that is already filled with the latest features. You can opt for a simple hot tub or an elevated spa with a zero edge overflow. Beautiful!


Custom Decks


Pools can only look as good as their surroundings, which is why you may want to consider giving your deck a facelift. It used to be standard to have a wooden deck surrounding an above-ground pool, or concrete around a built-in pool. But today’s decks are taking on a completely new look that is out of this world. Travertine tiles, for instance, are a great alternative because they are gorgeous, slip-resistant and durable. Plus, they tend to stay warmer in cooler temps, and vice versa. This is a great feature for those who plan to swim in the off seasons.
