Q: What do I need to consider when planning for a pool?

A: Before you start looking at swimming pool designs, it is important to think carefully about your goals for your overall outdoor area before you begin. What type of look do you want to achieve? There are many possibilities, including contemporary, classic, tropical, Balinese and any number other styles. It is important to consider how the theme you choose will fit with other existing features, such as the style of your home. The following checklist will help you get started:

  • How will I use the pool? – exercise, therapy, general play & recreation
  • What visual impression do I want? – central feature, secondary element, seasonal considerations, night-time considerations, style options i.e. naturalistic, classic, contemporary
  • How much paving do I want? – extensive, only at the entry, combined with decking or lawn
  • How do I want the pool enclosed? – standard fencing, glass fencing, wall, combination
  • What other features would I like? – water feature, fountain, speakers in the garden, pergola/gazebo, spa
  • How much storage do I need? – pool games and toys, pool equipment, pool chemical and maintenance supplies, cushions for furniture
