While summer may be in full swing, there’s still time to look into having the pool of your dreams built. Your pool can offer a number of benefits, from an accessible way to exercise, play, relax, and more. An inground pool may just be the way to get your family and visitors to choose your house as the go-to entertainment spot. That said, you want to set your inground pool apart from all the others out there and make sure it’s a dream design. The right options can take your inground pool from uninspiring to completely life-changing and Honeysuckle Nursery and Design is here to provide some insight.
1. Steps and Ledges
If you have children in your family or who may visit often, learn-to-swim steps are essential. Even for those who already know how to swim, they can be a big benefit, especially for older folk who may have a difficult time using a ladder or prefer to adjust to the pool’s temperature slowly. Similarly, sitting ledges give people an opportunity to get their feet wet and transition into swimming. Ledges are also great for relaxing and can help you squeeze some extra enjoyment out of your inground pool.
2. Adequate Storage
It may not be the most flashy feature out there, but having adequate pool storage is an underrated aspect of having a quality pool. It gives you a place to keep pool floats and maintenance tools tucked away, which is especially important when it comes to pool tools and testing equipment that require a dry place for storage when not in use in order to make sure they work for years to come.
3. Proper Paving
As much as your inground pool may end up being the focal point of your yard, there are other aesthetic decisions to make as well, especially when it comes to the paving around your pool deck. Finding the right material is key in terms of safety: you don’t want anything that’s too rough or too slippery. While textured concrete is a common option thanks to its affordability, it can lead to torn skin and sore feet if you aren’t careful.
4. The Right Depth
You may be planning on using your inground pool to do laps in or you might just want a place to relax during these hot summer days. Regardless, you’re going to be thinking about depth quite a bit when looking into inground pool installation. Most pool owners opt to have an area of the pool that’s around three feet in depth, allowing for a space where most swimmers can easily touch the bottom and for children to take advantage of. That said, you may want to balance that out with a much deeper end as well depending on what your needs are.
