Is it time to install an in-ground pool or upgrade an existing one? Summer is almost here, and it’s time to figure out how to make the most of your outdoor space.
Make a Splash with These Pool Trends
Adding a pool is not just refreshing, but it’s a great way to add more living space to your backyard. Still, many homeowners wonder how to add a pool without sacrificing the modern style of their property. Not to worry! These hot in-ground pool trends are meant to add architectural detail, style and a unique design feature to any home.
A Pool Creates an Outside-In Living Space
Pools no longer are considered that “add-on” element in the backyard. Today’s stylish design incorporates this modern water feature to the actual living space. By adding sliding, retractable, glass doors and specialty landscaping, it is possible to make your pool part of your home. This can give you more entertaining space, along with a unique architectural element to enjoy.
Create a Tropical Oasis with the Right Landscaping
That background pool is more than a place to swim and play — it can become a place to escape to and relax. Design your private getaway with the right landscaping. Adding plenty of overhanging palms, ornamental grasses and pots of tropical plants and flowers can create the type of paradise you can’t wait to get to.
Add a Scenic Element with an Infinity Edge
One of the hottest in-ground pool trends for 2018 is the infinity edge. If your pool is located in an area that overlooks a garden, harbor or another scenic view, adding an infinity edge can add an inspiring element that blurs the two scenes, for a more relaxed and beautiful setting.
Light the Way to a Relaxing Area to Enjoy
One way to upgrade your existing in-ground pool is to install modern lighting that is designed to enhance the entire exterior of your home. Selecting the right lighting can help to highlight certain areas of the pool and landscape including water features, walkways and more.

Smart Pools Are All the Rage
It has never been easier to maintain a pool. Want to have the temperature of the water perfect when you get home? You can make the water warmer or cooler with a touch of a button on your smartphone (no matter where you are). Automation may be the top trend in pool maintenance this year, with plenty of apps available to make your pool more enjoyable.
