Choosing the Best Spot for a Swimming Pool

When you’re designing a custom swimming pool and outdoor living space for your home, there are a lot of elements to focus on. There’s the patio, the shade structure, the fire pit, the grill, and the outdoor kitchen for football Sundays. However, there is also one element that ties your custom backyard all together. You guessed it, the swimming pool. If you already have a swimming pool in your backyard then there are a ton of incredible options for upgrading it and you should definitely check our custom pools and spas. What about homeowners that don’t have a pool yet? How do you go about choosing the best spot for a swimming pool in your backyard? Well, don’t worry we have you covered.

What To Consider When Choosing a Location for Your Swimming Pool

When you’re going to have a custom-built pool designed in your backyard, you need to consider a few things. Primarily, which spot will be best for the pool, and will you have enough room to make it work with everything. That’s a lot harder than you’d think but that’s why you have a luxury swimming pool designer like us on hand!

What Pool Features Do You Want To Include and How Much Room Will You Need?

If a pool were just a swimming hole in the ground then choosing the best spot would be easy. It’s not that simple though. Your swimming pool will likely have a pool deck around it, a spa, a diving board if you’d like, a waterfall with a lovely grotto, and just about anything that you could imagine. Yes, even a swim-up bar if you’re so inclined. All of those features will add to the perimeter of your swimming pool so you want to make sure that you are placing the swimming pool in a spot that allows for all of those wonderful additions.

Which Spots in Your Backyard Get the Most Sunlight?

Now, this consideration usually goes over people’s heads, but you need to make sure that you place your pool in a spot where it will be under the sun. While heated pool features are absolutely an option for you, you’ll enjoy a swimming pool that is warmed by the sun a lot more than one that sits in the shade all year-’round.

How Will You Be Using the Rest of Your Yard?

The final consideration would be making a decision as to what you want to use the rest of your backyard for. A luxury swimming pool is great but you will also want to spend time in your backyard when you have a BBQ, or when you want to have guests over for a get-together on the patio. If your entire backyard is a swimming pool, you won’t have any room for a built-in grill, an outdoor firepit, a patio, or even a custom outdoor home entertainment system. All of these features are incredible for outdoor living spaces and you’ll absolutely want to incorporate them into your custom yard.
