Thousands of New Zealand homeowners are discovering the wonder and joy of swimming pool ownership every year. Adding a swimming pool to your property is more popular than ever before, and for good reason. There is nothing quite like the feeling of being able to take a dip right in your very own backyard any time you want.
A swimming pool is a highly versatile space, offering a unique place right in your backyard to exercise, relax, unwind, entertain, and spend time with your family. Every family is looking for something unique from their swimming pool, and every swimming pool should be as unique as the people it belongs to—a perfect, personalised space. In the following article, we talk you through some questions you should ask yourself to enable you to develop a better idea of your perfect space.
The first question you want to ask yourself when trying to create your perfect backyard pool area is what kind of pool area you are looking to create and what do you intend to use it for. The answer to this question should come before any questions of budget or space. If you have a good idea of the perfect pool area and solution for you, then it’s easier to figure out what you can compromise on to fit within your space or budgetary requirements.
Pools come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, with some, having dedicated purposes. If you prefer to exercise at the gym rather than in the pool than a pool designed for exercised based swimming obviously won’t be the right choice for you. If you want to use your pool space to entertain friends and family it will be radically different than if you want a small, personal space for your own relaxation. Answering the question of why you want a swimming pool and what you aim to get back from the purchase is the first major step in crafting your perfect pool space.
Once you know what it is you are looking for, you need to work out what it is you can afford. A swimming pool is a major purchase, but there are options available for almost all budgets. A small budget doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to achieve your perfect swimming pool area, but it does mean you have to be more focused on the costs of any optional extras and additions so you know where you may be able to compromise. Many of the elements that craft your dream pool area can also be added after the fact (e.g. landscaping, barbecue area etc), so knowing your budget will let you know what to focus on and how to phase things if cost becomes a blocking factor.
Space is also an important factor when trying to create your perfect pool area. The amount of space you have available will not only dictate the size of the pool you may be able to have, but also how much space you have available for additional features such as landscaping, seating, or outdoor kitchens. Narellan Pools’ local pool builders are highly skilled at working to even the tightest constraints, so fear not – whatever space you have available your perfect pool area can be a reality, but the builder will need to know what space there is to work with.
