A swimming pool in the house is an extension of the owners personality, while at the hotels and resorts it exhibits the standards of luxury available. The swimming pool shapes are no longer restricted to the boring rectangles. They come in many shapes like circles, oval, oblong, figure of eight, or just any fancy shape. The colour of the tiles being used too includes a myriad hue of blues and greens. Some artists have lent their creativity and made breath taking murals and mosaics based on related subjects like mermaids, the underwater scenery, fishes and other aquatic animals, or simply the waves of the seas.
A play pool is usually about five feet deep and is a good option for families with kids. These pools are usually made with fun designs that can be customized the way the owner wants. A lap pool is created primarily for people to exercise in and is designed for people who do laps for health and fitness. For this reason, lap pools are usually long and narrow, measuring over fifty feet long. There is plenty of room for relaxing laps as well as to undergo more rigorous workouts.
A pool thats at a constant depth of 4 feet is sufficiently deep to splash around and swim the occasional lap in, but also shallow enough to provide safety for the whole family. If you want to use your pool for some serious exercise, then the dimensions of your pool require more critical consideration. For lap swimming, a pool at least 25 feet long and 3.5 feet deep is recommended, with typical lengths ranging form 25 to 40 feet. There are also dedicated lap pools that are relatively very narrow, and therefore fit in constrained spaces.
An addition of a spa or a hot tub to the pool area is a great complement to the swimming pool itself. Like pools, these come in the inground, and portable, aboveground varieties. An inground spa is typically connected to the pools filtration and heating systems. And if thats not the case, a portable spa is a much more economical option. If youre going to spend time poolside sunbathing, be sure to leave the space for it. And if you opt for the aboveground pool variety, the addition of a sizable pool level deck makes great sense.
