Top Swimming Pool Trends in 2018

Discover the hottest trends in pool design and features

Want to start off the year right with the installation of a new pool? If you are a prospective buyer, there are a few things you need to keep in mind when it comes down to the design. Sure, you want to be sure it matches your home’s style, but that doesn’t mean the pool can’t be stylish too. We’ve noticed a few trends circling 2018 that we’re sure you’ll be interested in. While a simple, rectangular pool will never go out of style, we encourage you to consider the following five styles.

1. Outside-In

Who said all pools belong in your backyard? This year, it’s predicted to see a more defined integration between the outdoors and indoors. This trend keeps pools close to the comfort of your home with sliding glass doors to set both spaces apart. A private indoor pool inside your home is truly the ultimate luxury.

2. Smart Pools

It’s no surprise that this is part of our top five trends for the year 2018. The future holds many technological advances and among them are smart swimming pools. Pools will be taken to a whole other level with this trend. Features will include but are not limited to the following:

  • Lighting
  • Temperature control
  • Cleaning
  • Audio

All these features will be easily accessed and controlled by smartphone apps for top convenience. This trend is going to become very popular this year, making it easy to prepare for a warm swim on your way home from work. You’ll also be able to schedule regular cleanings, saving you time, money, and energy.

3. Elevated Pools

In 2018, be prepared to enjoy the stunning sights and spaces of elevated pools. This will no longer be something you only see in movies, but you can actually enjoy it from the comfort of your home. Instead of a backyard pool, consider an elevated one whether it be above your garage, common rooms, or even roof!

4. Infinity Pools

This trend is here to stay—however, it can be more expensive than the previous ones. When designing a pool as such, hire a landscape architect who will be able to choose the colour of your pools interior to match the hues of the water beyond. We guarantee that the view won’t be better than this!

5. Darker Pool Colours

Say goodbye to the greens and blues this year and welcome darker pool finishes. Popular colours this year include navies and blacks. This provides a dramatic, mysterious look that is rising in demand. Darker pools provide a relaxing ambiance and help you feel more at peace. They are also warmed by the sun with ease.
