Fall in Love with Your Dallas Custom Pool

The cooler autumn months may have arrived, but that doesn’t mean that you have to stop enjoying the outdoors. With a well designed custom pool and outdoor living area built by Riverbend Sandler, you can enjoy outdoor living all year in the Dallas and Plano areas.

Custom Pool Fall Favorites

During the summer your custom pool was a place for play, entertainment, and cooling off. The fall still offers these same opportunities, though there are a few “must-haves” that your Dallas pool builder can incorporate to make it more “fall friendly”.

  • Tanning ledges: These shallow depths of water are perfect for cooling off without needing to fully immerse yourself in the pool.
  • In-pool LED lighting: Not only does LED lighting allow you to extend your swims well into the evening, but the many different colors to choose from present the opportunity for you to create a whole new ambiance once the sun goes down.
  • Custom spa: Nothing is more luxurious than unwinding in the soothing waters of a warm spa on a cool, starry night.
  • Automatic cover: Your automatic cover allows you to easily keep falling debris out of your pool while also enhancing your pool’s safety.
  • Pool heater: Water a bit too chilly for you? There are a variety of pool heater options available, from gas and electric to solar powered.

Outdoor Living Fall Favorites

Having an inviting outdoor living area will beckon your family and friends outdoors on even the chilliest of evenings. To create a cozy atmosphere, make sure the following are included in your outdoor living space:

  • Protection from the elements: Some form of shelter is a must-have during the fall, and you may be surprised to find that there are several budget-friendly and attractive options available.
  • Fire features: Ignite the fire pit, the fire bowls or your fireplace and your loved ones will find heading outdoors absolutely irresistible.
  • Comfortable seating: Plush, cozy couches, loungers and seats with tables and storage spaces are perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee on cooler mornings and for having warm after dinner drinks by the fire.
  • Outdoor kitchen: Tease the neighbors’ noses by cooking and grilling delicious meals in your outdoor kitchen.
  • Exterior lighting: Exterior lighting is important for safety, and landscape lighting will highlight key features of your backyard after dark.

Custom-formal-diving-pool-and-raised-spa

Life is about moments and creating memories. One of the main reasons people come to us is to  create an outdoor space they can enjoy for many years to come.

1. Develop Skills & a Passion for Swimming

Many children first learn to swim in their family pool. This early learning provides many great benefits, such as confidence in the water. Knowing how to swim as soon as possible is an important water safety factor, especially when a child has a pool available to use often. In turn, this will  pave the way to a love for swimming and might open doors that you never imagined. Think of all the top Olympic swimmers—each had a starting point to their journey. For many, that point was the family pool.

2. Make Lasting Memories

When your children or grandchildren look back on their childhood, they will never forget the fun times that they had in the family pool. They might learn to swim, or spend time with family at holiday events or weekend get-together’s, all while sharing laughs in and around the custom pool that was designed for your home. Celebrate in style with innovative design that brings a smile to everyone’s face. Each day spent with your loved ones around the pool is a good day.

3. Create a Retreat

Swimming pools are a lot of fun. In fact, once you have yours installed, you might never want to book a vacation away from your home again. Create the perfect backyard retreat, whether that is a lagoon style pool with waterfalls or a sleek contemporary pool with a raised spa. Visually pleasing effects, such as waterfalls or fire bowls will add to the excitement and make your family feel as if they are in their own luxury resort.  This is your family’s retreat away from the world.

Build A Custom Pool

A swimming pool is a great investment for you and your family. From learning to swim to creating your own oasis, you simply cannot go wrong when you decide to install a pool. You can jump start your journey to joyful experiences with the ones you love most by contacting Riverbend Sandler Pools today.

Making Your Dream Designs Come True

The right swimming pool for your home and lifestyle starts with a fantastic design. Even if you plan on hiring a pool builder in the future, you can start putting together your dream pool design today. Your award-winning Dallas pool builder Riverbend Sandler Pools takes the dreams and ideas of pool lovers and transforms backyards into beautiful aquatic escapes.

  1. Pick a Size and Shape

Before you can start exploring fun pool features, you need to have an idea of what size and shape of pool you want. Consider where you’ll want your pool in the backyard to give you an idea of the size, and think about how you will be using your pool when thinking about shapes.

  • Standard rectangular pools and lap pools are ideal for exercise
  • L-shaped pools can fit into small spaces and offer both swimming space and a spot for lounging
  • Freeform pools can be of any shape and size
  • Plunge pools are smaller in size and are perfect for cooling off
  1. Pick Your Features

If you haven’t already been browsing our galleries, now is the time to do it. Here you will find the inspiration you need to choose the best features for your pool, like deck jets, sheer descents, waterfalls and water slides.

Don’t worry about the finances yet, but do separate your list of features by placing them in a “must-have” list and a “nice-to-have” list. We will look at both lists and may be able to incorporate several of your “nice-to-have” items in with your “must-haves” to optimize space, aesthetics and your budget.

  1. Draw It Out

Our design specialist will work with you to create a custom design that integrates your style, wanted features and overall look. But it’s a good idea to make a sketch yourself to help both you and your pool builder envision what your pool will look like upon its completion.

  1. Work on a Budget

The best way to start on your budget is to be open with your needs and wants. This will give you an idea of exactly what everything will cost so you can revise your list of features, reshape your pool and improve its design.

  1. Bring Your Dream Pool to Life

Once you’ve settled on a pool design and its features, it’s time to bring your perfect private oasis to life!

The pool design process can be a long and tedious one, but with the right pool builder you will soon have the pool of your dreams right in your own backyard.

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.
