Matching Your Pool to Your Home
Your home is the grandest example of your personal style. Aesthetically-conscious homeowners will take all of the necessary steps to consider how each aspect of their home will complement their general vision.
If you’re considering building a new pool on your property, you must understand that a swimming pool is the ultimate focal point of your backyard. You want to make sure you choose the right design to match the style of your home.
Pacific Pools has years of experience coming up with the right pool design plans that suit your stylistic requirements. View our gallery for some inspiration on great pool designs!
Here are some ways to choose between the different styles of pools that could be best suited to the style of your home.
How Much Space Do You Have?
Take a good look at your backyard and determine how much space you’ve got and what it could hold. This will greatly dictate your pool choice. You may have to tailor the shape of the pool to the shape of your backyard.
What Style is Your Home?
The style of your home will determine the style of the pool. You don’t want a country home with a contemporary and modern swimming pool. In the same way, you wouldn’t put a curvy pool in a contemporary home made up of straight lines.
What Colours Can You Choose between?
The style of your house will also dictate the colours you can choose between. This goes not only for the interior of the pool but also the paving or deck that surrounds it.
Play around with Accents
If there is a main point of focus in the architecture of your home, you might want to stress that in the accents of your pool. For example, if your home is made of red brick, you can extend that look to the paving leading up to your pool. Or, a stately white house with white trimmings, you could keep that theme up in your pool by having a white interior & crystal clear water with a complimentary blue waterline feature.
What Style Pool Would Match Best
The main styles of pool design are:
- Resort style
- Pool/spa combo
Keep these design options in mind as you look at your own home. Just because your home is traditional, it doesn’t mean you have to choose a traditional pool. You can feel free to mix and match. A stark contrast between a country home and an infinity pool would be an interesting and bold statement to make.
