Dive into These 8 Pool Trends for 2018
Some of these pool trends might surprise you!
These 8 pool trends for 2018 are perfect for those of us who call Santa Barbara home. With our perfect year-round Mediterranean weather, we can enjoy our pools all year long. Thinking of adding a pool? Considering a pool remodel? Then check out this list:
I love the new trend to incorporate color into your pool. Consider coating your pool in azures or cobalt blues to create a lagoon-like effect. Create a luxurious, welcoming space using deep, dark, and soothing colors in your pool.
I’ve blogged about the popularity of smart homes Now that technology is something to splash about. Consider adding new Wi-Fi enabled products that you control with your smartphone to do everything from automating parts of your pool maintenance to monitoring your lights. Want to “Wow!” your guests at your next pool party? Add colored lights and fountains that you control from your smartphone.
Express Your Personal Style with Tile Mosaics
Create a unique look inside or outside your pool with interesting tile mosaics. Add a little backsplash to your pool with glass tiles, pebbles or stones. Or just complement your pool by adding an interesting mosaic on your walkway. You can also make your pool space unique with interesting mosaic finishes on surrounding structures like firepits, torches, and furniture.
Experts say this year the pool has become even more of a symbol of luxury, but that doesn’t mean you have to have a pool that takes over your entire backyard. We’re seeing small pool additions that add that popular water element.
Add a Splash Pad
Beautiful splash pads are not just for shopping centers anymore. Create your own kid-friendly fun zone with vertical and unpredictable sprays of water. Your dog will love it too!
Single Depth Pools
Swimming pools are a great place to exercise. That’s why single depth pools, also called sports pools, are gaining in popularity today.
Built-in Ledges and Bars
A built-in ledge is a perfect place to relax in the sun while a swim-up bar is a convenient luxury to use at your next pool party.
Outdoor Living Rooms
Create your own outdoor living room surrounding your pool. Add an outdoor kitchen and a designer fire pit and you’ll want to spend all your time in your own backyard.
