Having a swimming pool in your backyard brings endless enjoyment for the whole family, enabling you to cool off during the summer and spend quality time with your loved ones. That said, there are lots of things that you need to think about before you can start to enjoy all of the above. 

From setting a budget (and sticking to it) to choosing your preferred shape and style, read on to discover five factors that you need to consider before designing a swimming pool.

  • Determine your budget 

The first thing that you need to do when designing a swimming pool is work out how much you can realistically afford to spend. Although you may have a specific type of pool in mind, there’s no point in starting the design process if you can’t afford to follow through with the building of it. Make sure you factor in all the materials you’ll need, including any accessories, as well as the cost of the labor itself.

  • Decide on the type of pool you want 

There are three main types of swimming pools for you to choose from, so you need to think very carefully about which one best suits the space you have available. The three different types are vinyl-lined, fiberglass, and concrete. 

There are pros and cons for each type of pool, each of which a professional swimming pool builder will be able to talk you through.

  • Choose a circulation system 

When it comes to circulation systems for your swimming pool, you first need to determine how big your pool is going to be as you need to know exactly how many gallons of water it will contain. 

The next step is to decide the type of pump you want to use. Variable-speed pumps are known for their ability to adjust to your pool’s needs, which can help you to save money. This type of pump is also good for the environment in the same way that solar pool heating is.

  • Think about maintenance 

How do you intend to maintain your swimming pool once it has been built? Although a lot of fun, pools need a lot of upkeep and regular maintenance, so this is something that you need to consider when designing your new pool. 

As a general rule, standard-shaped pools are easier to maintain than more abstract ones, as are pools that feature fewer additional features such as dynamic jets and cascading waterfalls which require specialist care and maintenance.

  • Don’t forget landscaping 

What type of landscaping do you want to surround your new pool with? Do you want to create a tropical oasis, or would you prefer something a little bit more minimalist? Your choice of landscaping needs to complement the style of swimming pool you choose, and it also needs to fit into your overall budget. 

If you think you may need a little help with landscaping your pool area, consider hiring a professional landscaping companythat will ensure the area surrounding your pool has the wow factor.
