Guest post- Exotic Pool Designs: 4 Outstanding Choices!
So you do not want just an ordinary
swimming pool in the backyard? You would like something more eye-catching for
those times you head out to swim or lounge? To get off the beaten path of pool
designs, think outside the box. Here are four choices that can be outstanding,
depending on what you want: 1)
A rock pool. If
you have a hillside on one side of your pool, put in a rock wall or rock
accents along that great terrain. Then use rocks in the design of the pool, to
enhance and highlight the rock effect. With a few native plants, and some
exotic decking, the pool has been transformed into a native paradise, with the
feel of being in the South Pacific or Caribbean any time you step outside. 2)
A lighted wall. You have a small back yard built into the center of wings of your house. It is
open on one side and a little too visible to the neighbors.Thinking creatively and try putting a 10 foot wall
at the exposed end of the pool. From that wall, small fountains jet forth into
one end of the pool, providing a soothing waterfall effect. Accent lighting,
which you can find at this website, provides a soothing and soft colored
effect. You can also using blue lights to highlight the pool. The wall provides
privacy and a wonderful soothing water sound any time you are at the pool. 3) An infinity pool. For a striking effect, an infinity pool is one of the best designs available.
The basic concept is that the wall on the side of the pool next to the view
only comes to water level. If your house and back yard pool happens to be on a
hillside facing outward, no pool walls block part of the view, and the hillside
is mirrored in the water. For pool owners fortunate enough to have a pool
facing a lake or the ocean, the effect is all the more dramatic – a seamless tapestry of water
extending outward. 4)
Pools with curves. For those owners who do not want square edges, adding curves to the pool can
provide a very pleasing visual effect. Curves along the sides of the pool
provide a softening effect that relaxes a pool owner every time they walk into
the back yard. If the owner wants a hot tub – have the curve effect accented by
a circular or round hot tub that highlights the curves. Depending on the size
and shape of the pool area, the curves can bend and weave, and the pool itself
becomes a vital feature in the look of the yard, enhancing the look of the pool
area. The main question to ask for a pool
owner who wants to have an exotic pool – what is pleasing to the eye of that
person? Using that criterion, and a design professional to accommodate that
look, the pool will provide a wonderful escape that never feels ordinary, and
is constantly enjoyable when the owner walks into the back yard. Carol Atkins has been a freelance writer
