The Benefits of Owning a Pool in Dallas

When you reflect on the summers of your childhood,  some of your fondest memories were probably spent in the water. Maybe your family owned their own custom swimming pool and this led you to develop a passion for swimming and a thirst for the fun that only a pool can provide. Regardless of where these desires were sparked, you are now considering building your own custom pool at your Dallas home.

If you are still undecided whether to invest in a swimming pool in Dallas, there’s good news – building a swimming pool is a wise investment and increases your property value. If that isn’t reason enough, here are the many benefits of pool ownership.

Beneficial to Your Health

Health is not normally one of the first thoughts that people have when deciding to build a custom swimming pool, but it is a major benefit. Having a swimming pool gives you a great excuse to get out of the house and engage in some outdoor physical activity. This is also great for those who have families, as nobody loves taking a swim on a hot summer day more than children. If you are looking for a low impact way to get a full body workout, swimming is the perfect exercise. You will find that swimming regularly increases your mobility, improves your cardio and can even help you to lose weight. Psychologically, swimming is an excellent way to relieve stress. Owning a swimming pool can have a positive influence on your health.

Fun for the Friends and Family

One of the main reasons why people get swimming pools is to have a unique place to entertain their friends and family. The occasional pool party is always a great way to bring friends and families together.  Speaking of your outdoor space, have you considered building an outdoor kitchen or adding additional features to your pool area, such as a fire pit? These are the perfect features for those who enjoy entertaining regularly.

Increase Property Value

Did you know that adding a beautiful custom swimming pool to your property will increase the value of your home. If you ever do decide to sell, buyers appreciate the option of having a swimming pool already on the lot. Many potential buyers are in search of homes that have pools, specifically due to the climate of the area. If you would like a way to increase your property value as well as the amount of joy that your home brings to your family, invest in a swimming pool and reap the benefits.

Enjoy Quality Time Outdoors

Perhaps the biggest advantage to being a pool owner is that it will allow you to build on those childhood memories of summers that were spent in the water. You can also help your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews to create their own memories and in turn spark their own passions; a swimming pool is an investment that will give for generations.

4 Pool Design Trends to Look Out for in 2016

4 Pool Design Trends to Look Out for in 2016

Looking to have a pool installed as part of your New Year home improvement?  Then why not take a look at some of the new hot trends that are being used in pool design this year!  Here are 4 trends that are going to be making their way to a pool near you.

Smaller Pools

Bigger is better!  Well, maybe not.  There is a trend that says that pools can only be installed into a large backyard with plenty of room.  This simply isn’t true.

As people are looking to downsize their homes they are also looking to downsize their pools.  While there might not be enough room in the pool for a challenging game of Marco Polo or volley ball, you can still enjoy the outdoors and get cool in the hot summer months.  All while leaving plenty of room in your backyard for a barbeque and some patio furniture!

Natural Pools

Who wouldn’t want to recreate their favorite vacation lake in their backyard?  Well, that is exactly what a natural pool can do.  Instead of needing harsh chemicals to keep the water clean and balanced, you can do what Mother Nature does and use what she provides for your pool.

Natural pools use plants to keep the water clean.  The only problem with this kind of pool is that your neighborhood frogs or other wildlife might want to take a dip in your natural setting!  A natural pool can cut down on ownership costs as well.

Vanishing Edges

Did you buy your backyard for the view that it offers you?  If so, then you might want to make use of a vanishing edge on your pool.  

While these features can mostly be found in resorts and other places that charge for the scenery, they can be built in your backyard as well.  A vanishing edge means that one wall of your pool isn’t there.  The water is free to flow over the edge into a catch basin and is pumped back up into the pool.  It is a great way to sit back and enjoy the natural splendor of your home.

An Outdoor Lifestyle

How much time do you spend at your pool when you aren’t swimming?  If you are having guests over, maybe a little bit, but the pool is there for swimming, right?  Why not embrace the idea of outdoor living?

Spice up your pool area with a kitchen and dining area.  What about installing a bar or a fireplace to sit at and enjoy your outdoor entertainment system at?  All of these things can be great additions to your pool area and will turn it into so much more than just a place for swimming.

Modern Fire Features Are True Works of Art

Fire features for your enchanting pool have come a very long way over the years. They have evolved from simple firepits and casual outdoor chimneys to captivating pieces that bring an added beauty to the outdoor spaces of homeowners. Your dream can become a reality by adding a few touches that include fire elements. Modern fire features are true works of art that you should consider while designing or redesigning your pool space.

Flows with Any Design

There are fire features to fulfill the tastes of even the most selective clients. Your theme might be comprised of contemporary lines and materials—why not add a firepit with smooth, black stones? If your pool design is more rustic, your fireplace can be comprised entirely of regal stones that portray a sense of majesty. A professional pool designer, such as those who are proudly employed with the Dallas based company, Riverbend Pools, can assist you with finding a fire element that will work beautifully with your vision. For examples of what we can do, check out the video below.

Incorporate Additional Amenities

Fire features can be so much more than visual aesthetics. You can choose designs that incorporate a simple grill or an entire outdoor kitchen. They are lovely to enjoy on cooler nights when the warmth of the glowing flames is very welcomed by both you and any potential guests. Fire features are romantic, offering a stunning setting for a perfect night with the person who you enjoy the most in the world.

Fire features are trending with modern pool designs. They are the new must-have element for any lavish pool. If you would like to learn more, watch our video. You might also find our page on fire features useful, or you may contact a representative with Riverbend Pools today.

Some are wishing to use their pool for exercise or fierce games of volleyball, while others are purchasing a pool for the sole purpose of entertaining large quantities of people around the deck. Others want to walk out their back door to their own private oasis, and are most concerned with the beauty of the pool rather than the function.
