As the weather starts to get colder and the new year gets closer, the last thing on your mind is probably swimming. If you want a pool by summer though, now is the time to start thinking about getting one.
Swimming pools in Dallas have come a long way from your generic rectangular swimming pool. Pool design trends are gaining attention by incorporating luxury, leisure, and functionality. With a new year right around the corner, comes new trends to incorporate into your future outdoor oasis. While swimming season is still a few months away, California Pools has compiled a list of 2018’s Top 5 Swimming Trends in Dallas that we project will make a splash.
1. Infinity Edge
Also known as negative edge, zero edge, or vanishing edge pool. An infinity edge is a cosmetic design feature that is created by shortening the pool wall on one side and allowing the water to spill over into a catch basin, producing a visual effect of water extending to the horizon, vanishing, or extending to “infinity”.
2. Outdoor Sunken Kitchens
Adding a sunken kitchen to the design of your swimming pool can have a major impact all of your future outdoor gatherings. Sunken kitchens share a wall with the pool, which is used for a swim up bar. Not only do they look amazing, but they help you stay cool while you enjoy a cold beverage and a delicious meal.
3. Linear Contemporary
Contemporary design is gaining popularity in our southern city, and pools are no exception! These modern pools are aesthetically pleasing and the ultimate luxury. The landscaping and decking around these pools play a big part in the look, making design options limitless. They look especially spectacular with another top design trend, linear fire pits.
4. Rolled Headrest for Spas
Rolled headrests take your hot tub to the next level. The ultimate design to show off beautiful glass water tile while also incorporating added comfort.
5. Separated Paver Decking
Rather than pouring a concrete deck around a pool, this classy trend is becoming a staple in backyards. Laying pavers with grass, turf, or gravel to separate them instantly takes a backyard from generic to high-class
