As we ditch our blankets for beach towels and beanies for sunhats, it’s time to prepare for all the action that the Aussie summer is known to bring. But that also means dealing with heatwaves – something the good, old pool can be a saviour for.
These days, we’re seeing plenty of designs creeping up the wish lists of homeowners across Australia. Particularly, two types are among some of the most popular, prepping backyards around the country for a cooldown once the warmer weather rolls around.
We’ve tied in some of the biggest focus points for pool trends this season into our suite of services at Leneeva. Among these options are two distinct types:
Depending on the size of your space, your objectives and budget, one of these may be more suitable than another.
As the weather chops and changes and temperatures begin to take their toll, having enough shelter around your pool suddenly becomes top priority. While portable umbrellas and clothing can offer protection here and there, proper shade around your space provides far more comfort and effectiveness in the long-run.
At Leneeva Homes, we can design pool concepts that include sunbeds, as well as the option to include shelter over it. Instead of reaching for your hat or ducking into the shade away from the pool, this type of solution lets you bathe by the water without the heat becoming too much of a burden.
This year, we’re seeing a whole lot of concepts that are inclusive of water fountains, creating balance and flow into the pool itself. Aesthetically, this kind of look allows for a ‘tranquil’ vibe and a luxury feel. Water fountains also improve the visual aesthetic of the pool when the weather isn’t so great. For homeowners looking for a simple way to jazz up their outdoor area, and not just have a simple design in place, this is the ultimate way to take the next step.
Beyond this, water fountains provide effective circulation of the water, distributing chemicals evenly and moving the flow through the filtration system. This is especially important for eliminating the potential for stagnant water to grow any nasty inhabitants.
No matter what look you’re aiming for, there are a number of options to consider when making a decision.
Overall, the end look should blend seamlessly with your existing surrounds. There shouldn’t be a juxtaposition with the pool and your overall property, so ensuring it all fits nicely together is half the challenge. Additionally, different styles require different levels of maintenance, so if you’re time-poor, this may also influence your decision.
From the outset, the Leneeva Homes experts will sit with you to better understand your objectives and support you in choosing a design that’s right for your property.
