INCORPORATE A DELIGHTFUL SWIMMING POOL IN YOUR HOUSE(AN ULTIMATE GUIDE)

Having a swimming pool in the house is a delight and fantasy for all of us when it comes to our dream home interiors. Especially this time of the year with sparkling summery days, we all need our little getaways in our homes to feel at ease. 

Swimming pools are particularly an expensive investment when it comes to interior curation, however, that does not mean that you cannot curate a swimming pool of your own. 


Some of the things that need to be taken into consideration are :

Why should you require a swimming pool in the first place? 

If you can answer this simple question, committing to the rest of this article would be easier. Start with establishing the real purpose of the big construction of the pool. The utility and frankly the use of this big construction. This shall affect all the other aspects of the construction like size, placement and material requirements. 

Next is can your site really carry this big construction?

Unlike the easiness that is shown in movies, swimming pool construction is actually much more complicated. Swimming pools are easier to build if the section is tangible with the slope and require much less of a cost. In case you live in the area of an earthquake-prone zone or the soil conditions and water table levels are different the cost of construction would be much more. 

Where to place the swimming pool?

The size and location of your place will define the size and shape of the swimming pool.

Sun exposure, general temperatures, garden to swimming pool ratio, wind exposure, circulation routes, large types of equipment and seating plan, all need to be planned out well. 

Maintenance and cost 

The cost of a basic concrete pool is similar to the one made from fibreglass material and concrete, but as many of these concrete pools are customised in shape and size, their price is often higher. You will have to spend closer to 3-4 Lakh INR for a concrete pool, and many additional costs need to be factored in that includes the heating, covers, decking and landscaping.

Built it above or below the ground level?

The question of choice is whether the swimming pool is to be constructed by digging up the soil or be above it. Soil extraction can take up a huge amount of time but these in-ground pools are much more sturdy and durable than above it. 

However, if you have a steep site it may be cheaper, faster and easier to install an above-ground fibreglass pool with a surrounding deck, especially if access is tricky.

What materials to use in the construction?

Concrete and fibreglass are the most popular sorts of materials that are used to build a strong swimming pool, however, that is really affected by the availability of the material and the ground level and place. Other materials include vinyl, steel, aluminium and concrete composite and many other such alloys of the materials. A flexible liner with non-corrosive layering and durability is the prime ideal for swimming pool construction. 


Advantages of having a swimming pool:


The biggest perk of having a swimming pool is the fun of it all with an easy swim at whatever times you want. It is the most fun when kids are around and makes summer tolerable in high temperatures. 


The convenience of a swimming pool- Community swimming pools are wonderful – when they are open. All community pools have their functional operating hours and they might not operate with your time and busy schedules. Even if they are open there is a season of their opening and therefore are difficult to keep up with. 


Cleanliness- Even though there are certified rules in a community pool to keep them clean there are chances of having all types of diseases from the shared pools. Children can catch up with those and is not the safest option. There is always room for community transfer and in the pandemic, pools are essentially banned from being operated. 


Increased home value- With the recent trend in home values that traditional in and out homes have a lower selling value than well furnished and residential homes. A backyard swimming pool or an indoor construction of the same has become more valuable in-home sales these last few years. 

Mistakes to avoid while building a swimming pool :

Choosing the wrong space of construction for the swimming pool, in that it cannot be moved as it is a permanent built. Being exposed to too much shade or sun or a cooped up space. 


 Getting a board for diving that is hardly practical or usable. You need a deep end for diving boards, which can certainly add to the cost of your pool and children need to be closely supervised while using it.


Leaving out decking or paved areas around the pool to save money. You should keep in mind that people spend more time beside the swimming pool than in it and trying to add more space after the construction process is finished can be expensive.


Buying on the cost-benefit analysis alone and cutting the cost by skimping on corners is not worth it with swimming pools.


Underestimating the size of the massive built-in project and the resultant upheaval of the place and land. Expect dirt and chaos and how you will handle the mess better when the construction happens. 



5 SWIMMING POOL DESIGN IDEAS FOR YOUR HOME :

Similar to a home’s unique style, which varies from its architectural structure to its fine décor and interiors, a personalised swimming pool curation can vary according to the property as well as your personal choices. Whether you’re in a sprawling holiday home outside the city or a cosy bungalow that can accommodate a pool on its rooftop, these tips will help you plan for your home makeover with the swimming pool design perfect for you and your family.


INFINITY SWIMMING POOL 


An infinity pool is also known as a zero-edge pool. It looks like it disappears into the horizon. An infinity pool is designed to play a visual trick on the eye, making you think that there is no separation between the water and surrounding landscape features. Much similar to waterfall. You see the water go over the edge of a waterfall and—disappear into thin air.



MODERN LUXURY DESIGN 


A swimming pool design, a rooftop swimming pool design can give a mesmerising view from home. When designing your pool, it would be a clever idea to plan it outside a room or a space that you’d use frequently for entertaining. This could be the area that is most frequently visited like a patio or a backyard of the house where you can have guests over. If the pool is situated on the rooftop of a home, it serves as the perfect foreground for the rest of the view.



INDOORS MIDCENTURY POOL 


Indoor swimming pools are a perfect amalgamation of private spaces and easier installation and convenience when it comes to their maintenance. Curate a spa-like indoor pool inspired by th minimalistic midcentury designs that ease into any open space in the house and are easy to maintain and more durable than the outside pools. A proper slope and area configuration with the building of the house is necessary to determine its practicality. 


CLASSICAL GARDEN POOLS 


You can never go wrong with the classical backyard or garden swimming pool design, installed in the middle of the lawn area with lush green trees and floral property around. It is a perfect family choice for the home and convenient to host and have guests over a barbecue night. Add an old Hollywood charm to the place making a vintage fountain in between. 


SHIPPING CONTAINER POOLS 


Container pools are famous for their strength and durability, and container pools have the most sturdy and safest installation of them all. The steel boxes underlying a container pool are used to support enormous loads and deal with the stresses of open-sea travel. That means that the pool can withstand the pressure and traffic variants of a busy family and can last longer with a flexible installation. Container pools are efficient in that they have a flexible layout and can be installed in homes with lesser spaces. It has support from the sides and the ends themselves that will allow you to place them in buildings.
