Bridging the gap between enjoyment and a home feature, including a swimming pool to your home can provide a multitude of benefits. In the often intense summer heat, the humble back yard swimming pool provides a much needed refuge. A place to cool down after work, after school or on the weekend. However, when paired with thoughtful exterior design and effective transitions from outdoor Alfresco areas, this can transform a functional swimming pool to a timeless design feature. As a result, swimming pool design is at the forefront of 2018 home design trends. Let Virgon explain the advantages of including one in your Custom Home.
Luxury Pool Design
A well designed and integrated pool can be an amazing addition to your custom designed dream home. Not only is it calming and restoring, a well-designed pool is a piece of art that complements your home. Further, it acts as a fantastic entertainment feature in summer (and winter if you have a well heated pool). It is also a stunning water feature in winter. It is the ultimate backdrop to your backyard oasis.
Pool design can range from elegant infinity edge pools to gentle shapes and landscaping that mimic natural formations. Modern design allows for almost anything you can dream up .This includes cut-away sides, indoor and outdoor pool transitions, organic shapes and landscaping, and clever integration around the home.
Virgon’s Luxury Pool’s can be further enhanced using:
- solar heating (to minimise carbon footprints)
- in-floor cleaning to minimise maintenance
- jet turbines for swimmers to continuously swim in the comfort of their backyard
Alfresco Living – The Seamless Transition Between Indoor and Outdoor Living
Alfresco living is also making a triumphant return in 2018. Blurring the boundary between outdoor and indoor living creates a luxurious, calming atmosphere in custom homes. Soothing elements of the outdoors combine with the convenience of the indoors. As a result, this creates entertaining spaces that take advantage of incredible outdoor kitchens and entertainment set ups while allowing homeowners to enjoy the beauty and diversity of the natural environment.
Innovative construction, design techniques and ideas allow architects and builders, like the team at Virgon, to seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor life.
