A swimming pool is already a pretty great place to be. Add a few luxury features and it becomes a vacation-worthy hangout so fabulous you’ll never want to leave.
You might want to invest in a few more swimsuits.
Features once found only at high-end resort pools are making their way onto the home pool scene, from stunning perimeter overflow to exotic fire features.
Let’s take a look at a few of the coolest of the cool pool features to consider.
The ultimate “how did they do that?” swimming pool feature, perimeter overflow offers a stunning effect. The water’s surface looks like a flat sheet of glass and appears to be perfectly contained — without walls.
In perimeter overflow, the pool water overflows its edges and flows into a hidden slot or catch basin where it’s then recycled back into the pool.
It’s similar to an infinity-edge pool, but with a perimeter overflow, the water overflows on all four sides.
It’s hard to stop staring.
Caves And Grottos
Caves and grottos create an alluring sense of mystery in a pool. Secluded, enchanting, they lure both kids and grown-ups with potential for adventure — without leaving the yard.
Surrounded by waterfalls, colored lights and more, caves offer a unique space to relax and cool off in the shade.
A cave can be extravagant, with multiple rooms and swim-up bars. A grotto can be cozy, an intimate spot nestled behind a waterfall.
Add a hot tub to your grotto. Incorporate an outdoor kitchen in your cave.
You’re only limited by your imagination.
The hottest trend in luxury pool design, captivating fire features add spectacular wow factor to a pool.
Glowing fire pits and fire bowls. Blazing tiki torches. Fire troughs.
Fire adds a sense of the exotic, as well as a striking visual as the dancing flames reflect off the water’s surface.
Fire adds drama, but it adds function, too, adding extra light when you’re entertaining or just enjoying the pool yourself at night.
Flame is mesmerizing and helps transform your pool into a resort-style gathering place after sundown.
Have your fire features installed with a handy remote control — excitement with the push of a button.
Every pool needs a cover. It’s the best way to protect the investment you’ve made in your pool. Even the smallest debris falling into your pool can lead to liner tears, water imbalances or damage that could be expensive — and a nuisance — to repair.
The most luxurious cover is automatic — no cranking a wheel to put it in place.
Simply flip a switch or press a button. Your pool is ready to enjoy or closed up tight in less than a minute. The cover is concealed within an integrated housing when the pool is in use.
Automatic safety covers create a barrier over your pool to keep children and pets safe.
Yes, you can add underwater windows to your pool. Or create one whole wall of your pool from a see-through acrylic panel.
These viewing panels allow natural light to flow into your pool.
Plus, it’s fun to watch people splashing around, aquarium-style.
Laminar jets produce clear or lighted arcs of water up to 7 feet high and 8 feet wide that arch into your pool with a soothing sound to create spectacular backyard entertainment.
The clear arcs of water by day transform into an impressive colorful light display at night. Multiple jets can be combined and synchronized for a dazzling light show you control.
You could almost charge admission.
