Top 10 Reasons to Custom Design Your Own Pool

Designing anything is impossible without some sort of degree, right? Not always. You can save money and piece of mind by designing certain things yourself. Here are ten great reasons to design your own pool:


  • It’s an extension of your home. Your pool needs to fit in with your overall style and architecture. Custom designing it will ensure that it fit with your home as well as with your own image of the house.
  • A gaudy pool can ruin a beautiful garden. Template pools aren’t made to fit perfectly with scenic gardens. If you are looking to float by your carefully tended flowers every day, you may need to draw up your own plans to ensure none of them are compromised.
  • Make your own garden features. You can add water fountains for the kids, or a special shallow end for your favorite pet, the pool world is your oyster! Make the pool your own personal project and you will be grateful in the long run.
  • Hiring a designer can cost money. Why not do it yourself? The money you save can be spent on extra features for you and your family. Heating and lighting could be paid for in the absence of an expensive designer.
  • It has never been easier. Most pool companies now offer a DIY package with step by step instructions on how to create a pool that will work for your needs. It isn’t as daunting as you may think.
  • If Art is your thing, why not add a touch? Mosaics work great for underwater art, or you can even design your pool in the shape of your favorite musical instrument. There are no limits to the imaginations.
  • It can be a family project. Bringing your partner or kids into the mix can be a fun project. Not only will there be special bonding time, but everyone will get a pool that they can enjoy with special features just for their needs.
  • Style can be important, especially if you have already spent so much time and hard work on your interior. A rectangular white pool may seem boring or bland if you see it after a beautifully furnished living room. Take the time to show that you spent as much effort on your pool as you did the rest of the house.
  • Designing or even building part of your own home gives a great sense of accomplishment. You learn invaluable experience and can work at your own pace. There will be no regrets with the turn out when you make every decision yourself.
  • Increase the value to your home. Any pool will increase the value of your property, but a unique and unusual one could drive the price up just a little bit higher. When its done right designer your own pool could actually make you money in the long run.
