Tips for Designing Your New Pool

Design Your New Pool

Are you finally ready to take the plunge and build the pool you and your family have been talking about for years? Read below to find out how to have the pool that will give you many years of fun and pleasure through designing your new pool by yourself!

Calculate a Complete Budget

Keep in mind that the cost of building a pool is rarely confined to the price of the pool alone. If you plan to build a deck next to your pool or upgrade your landscaping to integrate the pool into your property, these and other pool-related structures should be part of your budget.

Owning a pool means additional monthly expenses as well. Routine pool maintenance costs as well as additional energy expense to run the filtration unit should be part of your complete budget.

Space Considerations

Make sure you have ample space to build the pool you have in mind. Don’t forget to factor in additional space for decks, landscaping, fences, etc. Choose a design that will maximize the space you have and still allow you to enjoy the rest of your property.

Different Types of Pools

If you choose an above-ground pool, know that your design choices will be limited. Above-ground pools are typically cheaper and much easier to install but usually come in just rectangular or circular shapes. They are also shallower and smaller than in-ground pools.

If you choose to have an in-ground pool built, you will have many more options in terms of material, pool size, depth and design. In-ground pools can be made of vinyl, concrete or fiberglass.

Vinyl pools are made from reinforced steel beams covered with vinyl lining. They come in a variety of designs, colors and patterns. Concrete pools also offer a wide range of design and finishing materials for a completely customized look. A concrete pool usually takes the longest time to install and is the most expensive choice among the three types of pools mentioned. A fiberglass pool is molded in a factory as a complete shell that is then transported and installed. Design options are limited because there is a maximum size that can be transported on the country’s roads.


There are any number of accessories and accessory combinations that are available to pool owners of today. Diving boards, slides, hot tubs, waterfalls – the list is long, and each item offers its own set of benefits and potential for fun and enjoyment.
