Swimming pools act as a pleasant, at-home getaway during the hot summer months. There’s nothing better than diving into your private pool after a long day at work or if you want to have a relaxing day outside on the weekends. Pool builders here at Odyssey Pools know that pool designs are fundamental to the overall feel of your pool, and you should definitely personalize your pool to fit your preferences.
If you haven’t looked into pool additions to vamp up your backyard resort, we’ve taken a look at some of the most unique and popular pool designs from this year. Hopefully, this blog can help inspire you to add some flare to your pool. Here are some of our favorite pool designs from 2019.
San Miguel Traditional Retreat
Interior designer Rela Gleason and her husband, Don, own a beautiful home in the hill town of San Miguel, Mexico. The home was designed and decorated with a more traditional vision in mind, and the pool was built on a second-floor guest casita (little house) with a trumpet vine-covered roof. A Schefflera tree was planted beside the pool, which was framed with using adoquín, a local paving stone.
A Modern Favorite
This pool sits atop a triplex designed by architect Bernard Khoury. Of course, we had to feature this design because of its sleek appearance and marvelous view, overlooking Beirut and the Chouf Mountains. Pool builders, as well as modernists, can agree that this pool design is a dream come true for any homeowner.
This pool is located inside a former barn in the Belgian countryside. We love the innovation that went into turning an old farmhouse into a beautiful pool. The now pool house features steel frames and the original beams, and it is also sheathed in glass mosaic tiles surrounded by Belgian bluestone.
An Elegant Lap Pool
We can’t discredit the beauty of lap pools, and this one situated in a modern chalet overlooking the Alps is an excellent example of a well-designed lap pool. Pool builders who worked on this pool included sliding partitions crafted from wood, glass and metal.
These are just a few designs that caught our eye, and hopefully, you can draw some inspiration from this list to help you reimagine what your backyard swimming pool can turn into.
