Picking the Right Custom Pool Design

When you build a custom swimming pool, you have almost limitless design options. Making this decision, however, becomes much easier once you understand your personal style. Consider these five factors before picking a new custom pool design.

Establish Your Budget

New pool construction is a significant investment, especially if it is custom-designed. You don’t want new pool construction to come to a halt simply because you failed to properly budget for your pool construction project. Your budget and pool financing will also determine which designs and features for your outdoor living spaces are feasible.

Gather Inspiration

Consider whether you want to add any features to your pool. Drawing a rough layout of your yard not only transfers your ideas from your head to paper, but also provides a comprehensive picture that can alert you to potential changes that are needed and inspire you to add additional features.

Know the Latest Trends

The more you understand about these materials, the better you will be able to predict whether your existing pool will still look good in years to come. Consider your lifestyle and how those accessories will complement it to help you find the ideal pool construction and design.

Make Safety a Priority

Safety is of the utmost importance when it comes to swimming pools. Consider installing a pool safety gate and incorporating safety steps into your design. Including depth, markers can assist swimmers in determining how deep the pool is at any given point.

Work With the Best Custom Pool Builder

Remember that building a custom swimming pool is not a cheap endeavor, which is why your choice of a pool builder is critical. To make your custom pool idea a reality, you will need a pool builder with experience, but it must be the right kind of experience.

Design Your Custom Pool Through Calimingo’s 5-Step Process

Working with a swimming pool builder who has extensive knowledge and experience and understands the entire process is critical when building swimming pools.

1. Take the Design Survey

By conducting a quick survey with one of our Orange County custom pool specialists, we first spend time getting to know you and your goals, as well as understanding your design aesthetic and wish list.

2. Tell Us About Your Vision

Every Orange County custom pool project strives to create a one-of-a-kind space that speaks to you. Our pool builder staff is interested in learning about your lifestyle, and the information you provide will be used to create your new pool design.

3. Obtain Photos and Site Measurements

We’ll need to learn about your outdoor living space. Using photos and measurements, our team can create an accurate model of your current layout.

4. Use Design Skills to Create the Perfect Pool

Then, a California pools designer will collaborate with you to determine the best time to visit your home and gather additional information about your design objectives.

5. Schedule a Screen Share Design Review

We can’t say enough about the amazing job that Calimingo did on our new pool build. Being first time home owners, we were worried about getting stuck in a confusing and costly building process. Luckily, Calimingo eliminated those fears and took the time to make sure we understood every step of the process. So, if you want your pool built right – give these guys a ring!

Had JE Proscapes remodel my old pool, expand it out, and added a jacuzzi. From the start when they came out to give me the estimate to the time the pool was done, they were very informative and gave me update as I ask them 200 question about status of work, design, and material. I was impressed with their team and their communication. I had a few tile that fell off because my cement guy didn’t cut expansion joint into my concrete and JE Proscapes not only told me what was wrong but went out of their way and fixed my tile at no charge. Their customer service and detail of service is 5 star worthy.

Frequently Asked Questions

To help you better understand these factors, we’ve provided a few frequently asked questions that can help you make an informed decision.

Can you customize pools?

One of the best things about building a custom pool is just that — it’s custom! These days, pools can be whatever you want them to be, and that includes the shape! When it comes to choosing the shape of your pool, there are a variety of options to choose from. Get creative!

Is a round or rectangle pool better?

Typically, a long, rectangular pool is based on laps since it lets you swim in a straight line. A rounded pool would be better for lounging and for recreational swims. These pools are usually smaller and do not have a straight path for swimming laps.

How do you lay out a swimming pool?

Measure the width. Multiply the length by the width of the pool to find the square footage. For instance, 15 feet (length) times 12 feet (width) equals 180 square feet.

    What landscaping do you put around a pool?

    You could plant boxwood shrubs around your pool or set up a trellis with vines growing through it. If you live in a tropical climate, you can grow a grove of palm trees around your property.

    How do I make my pool look tropical?

    When you want an outdoor space that screams beach house or casino resort incorporating an assortment of plants, trees, shrubs, and other natural items that can help your dreams come true.

    Turn Your Dream Backyard Into Reality

    You should be one step closer to selecting a new pool design now that you understand what custom pools are and how they differ from standard swimming pools.
