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.
