Streamlined and stylish, this Baldivis pool installation by Sapphire Pools appeals to every member of the family.
Measuring 7.6m by 3.6m, with a depth ranging from 1m to 1.96m, Sapphire Pools Business Development Manager Darren Godden told New Homes the owners had always wanted a pool and, with a growing family, the installation provided a new activity, home entertainment and exercise area.
“The owners chose it mainly for the kids, but had also planned from the start to add a pool to the property one day,” he said.
“With a good deal offered by the pool company, they decided the time was finally right and took the plunge.
“Accompanied with a vision and plenty of design ideas, they visited a display centre and turned their dream into a reality.”
Ultimately choosing the Cambridge design, Mr Godden said the standout aspects were the pool’s modern, geometric design, along with the colour of both the pool and paving.
“The owners decided to go with Crystalite ColourGuard Platinum for the pool and complemented this with light-coloured paving, making their pool standout from their garden as the marquee feature of the outdoor area,” he said.
“Once the pool installation was complete, garden beds and palm trees were added as a backdrop.
“The timber posts and black fencing were inspired by a similar design they had seen. Combined with the glass fencing, it makes for a very striking finish.”
Ideal for lap swimming, the entry to the pool is unobtrusive, with side-entry steps to maximise the swim area.
For added safety and the opportunity to relax in the pool, an extended bench seat stretches across the length of one side of the pool.
Mr Godden said the family could swim longer in warmer water thanks to a 13-kilowatt heat pump, while ambience was easily created at night with a remote-controlled, multi-plus LED light.
There is also plenty of space to move around the poolside.
“The pool equipment is hidden below the pool level, which the owners were very pleased about, as it gave them more options and resulted in a much cleaner design and look within the pool area,” Mr Godden said.
