With the Southern Californian heat, nearly every house in Sherman Oaks should have a pool. If you are looking to build a pool, or redo a pool that is dated or in disrepair, here are some creative pool designs!
One of the first pool design considerations is shape. Pool shape is often dictated by features such as lot size, permit restrictions, and more. However, if you have a large yard in Sherman Oaks, a pool shape can be a significant element of your design. For a cleaner look, go with a shape that has straight lines and corners. If you’re traditional, add some curves. If you want to do something off the wall, start thinking of your favorite objects. There are cat-shaped pools, violin pools, heart pools, and more! If you’re creative, concrete knows no bounds!
One of the next steps is choosing materials. Adding unique tiling can spice up your pool design. You can select patterned tiles to give your pool an internationally inspired flair or simply choose a nontraditional color such as bright green or purple to complement other design choices in your yard.
In-pool seating is a luxurious design if you have space. Zero entry or shallow pools can be designed to put sun loungers straight in the water, helping you tan without sweating! Swim-up bar stools are a great social feature to enjoy cocktails. If you want to splurge, adding stepping stones across a large pool can lead to a sunken, dry seating area surrounded by water.
Fun Pool Features
Fun features can enhance pool design. For children, slides are always a winner. If you want a classy look, adding waterfalls can make your backyard feel like a vacation. Choose stone for a discreet and natural look, or experiment with waterfall walls or elevated spouts if you want a more dramatic effect. If you want to add something more dramatic, consider adding gas fire features such as outdoor firepits at the edge or corners of the pool to contrast the body of water.
