The mixture of models and distinctiveness of designs of indoor pools, for one, speaks of the custom-made-products-and-services era. Whether you want an indoor pool installed for leisure and exercise or for practical purposes (e.g. less maintenance and protection from weather changes), or both, contractors always offer designs that can cater to your demands and preferences. So it is important that you have several designs in mind before contracting the contractor, to make your communication easier.
Here are a few great ideas from the web to help you build that ideal indoor haven for your home.
- Sizes and basic pool materials. Size and shape are the visible parts of a pool design, and they definitely need special attention if you want the look of your pool to satisfy you longer than it takes you to decide remodeling it. Basically, the size of your swimming pool is directly related to its function. Pool parks are much bigger than home pools, for example. Olympic-sized pools are constructed for swimming laps while others with various shapes, sizes and accessories – such as L-shaped pools, pools with diving boards or water slides – can be chosen for your leisure, fitness or therapeutic needs. For the pool basin and decks, you can opt for vinyl or concrete.
- Special materials. The case for an indoor pool is different from those of an outdoor pool. Since the likes of a motel pool and an area pool are located in buildings, moisture condensation is an expected occurrence. This can cause building materials to deteriorate and be a possible threat to your safety. Jon Evans’ answer to this is ample insulation, as he writes in his site indoorpools.com. Use rustproof hardware materials and check gaps in insulation intensively. He gives a thumb up to materials that are highly resistant to moisture. Although this part of the design is not entirely visible, its purpose spells the big difference between a safe and a dangerous indoor recreation experience in the long run.
- Best fixtures. Design pool with a lighting that will enhance your swimming experience and is practical at the same time.
