The year of 2015 has already begun dropping hints that it will be filled with exciting pool design ideas and features that will take backyard pools to a whole new level. If you’re planning your fantasy waterscape and hoping to remodel or build your perfect pool next year, here are some of the hottest trends that you can expect to see this:
1. Knife Edge Swimming Pool Designs
Most individuals who have been exploring their pool options have already encountered and likely included an infinity edge into their dream pool design ideas. One new trend that has the potential to surpass the popularity of the infinity edge is the knife edge pool. Also known as a perimeter overflow swimming pool design, the knife edge allows for water to spill over on all four sides of the pool, unlike the infinity edge which typically only allows water to flow over from one side.
2. Glass Tile Finishes
There was a huge surge in glass tile finishes during 2014 and the trend is sure to continue as we enter 2015. Glass tiles trumped the ceramic and porcelain tile for two reasons this year:
a) Glass tile is incredibly durable; and
b) Glass tiles offer a unique iridescent look that no other finish can offer
One thing to keep in mind is that glass tiles can be a bit slippery when used on walking surfaces or rough around lounging areas. They work best when installed as a waterline band or throughout the entirety of the pool.
3. Illusion Spas
Forget raised or sunken spas. Today’s pool owners can now treat themselves to illusion spas. Pool design ideas allow for these spas to be fully integrated into the pool so that they actually appear to be part of it. You’ll have to decide early on if this is the spa for you, however, as these spas are built right into the pool and will be difficult to add once construction is complete.
