Every backyard is unique when it comes to size, layout, and terrain. That’s why at Rideau Pools, we never use cookie-cutter designs. Instead, we utilize advanced 3D technology for the layout based on the scope and landscape to create a beautiful, cohesive design that integrates perfectly with your entire property. If you’re wondering how to design a swimming pool, here are some of the key steps that are involved in the process.
Determining the Best Location
Any good pool design should be a focal point of the yard, while still fitting in seamlessly with the surrounding landscape. When determining the best location to install a pool, there will always be certain challenges, limitations, and factors to consider. Based on the terrain, sun and size, we help homeowners pinpoint the best spot for their pool.
Determining the Best Shape
Though the standard rectangular pool shape is one of the most common, it doesn’t mean it’s the right fit for you. Today, we can create a multitude of shapes and sizes with a freeform structure that can be incorporated into almost any outdoor space. This is where our 3D tech really comes in handy, allowing us to play around with different designs to determine what will work best for your yard and your pool needs.
What’s the Pool’s Intended Use
Speaking of pool needs, it’s important to think about how you plan on using your new pool. If you’re planning on doing laps, then something standard like the rectangular shape will work best. If you prefer something more natural, a freeform design could be better suited. If you have kids, then a sports profile pool might be ideal with two shallow ends and a deeper section towards the center. With such a wide variety of options available today, we can construct the pool exactly as you wish with luxurious finishing touches to create an outdoor oasis that you’ll love to use and show off.
Think About the Rest of Your Yard
Some other important factors to think about when designing your pool include its proximity to your outdoor dining or lounging areas, what your deck structure will look like, what materials are best for your location, and how much seating you want in or around the pool.
If you’re planning to spend more time at home this year, a new pool can take your staycations to a whole new level.
