5 Swimming Pool Design Trends Going Into Summer 2023

Summer is the time people look forward to most. It’s the season of pool parties, barbecues and relaxation. If you’re looking for new ways to transform your backyard into an oasis this summer season, here’s a list of the hottest pool design trends as we head into 2023:

1. Plunge Pools

A plunge pool is a larger, deeper swimming pool that typically has one or more steps leading into the water. Plunge pools are usually built at least 1.5 metres below ground level and are not usually intended for recreational swimming. Plunge pools can be used for a variety of purposes including:

  • Swimming lessons – where children can safely enjoy the water without being in danger of drowning
  • Physical therapy (for rehabilitation after an injury) – allowing patients to exercise without risk of re-injury
  • Water features – adding aesthetic value to your home or garden

2. Glass And Wood Water Features

There are many different material options for water features in swimming pools, but glass and wood are two of the most popular choices. Glass is a great material because it’s easy to clean and maintain, is available in many different colours and textures and can be used as a standalone feature or combined with other materials such as stone or metal.

Wood also lends itself well to all sorts of designs, from rustic pieces that look like they have grown from the earth themselves to sleek modernised styles which blend seamlessly into any space.

3. Splash Pads

Splash pads are increasingly common in community pools and make a wonderful addition to any home pool too. They provide an opportunity for children and adults alike to keep cool and have fun in the sun without having to immerse themselves in a swimming pool.

There are many features that make a good splash pad:

  • Should offer plenty of space for children and adults alike to enjoy themselves at once;
  • Should be easy for people with restricted accessibility;
  • Should be durable enough that it won’t break down easily under heavy use;
  • Should have a design that fits well with the rest of the property.

4. Infinity Pools

Infinity pools are becoming increasingly popular in Australia. These swimming pools appear to have a vanishing edge that disappears into the horizon, creating the illusion that you can swim out into infinity. The water can be heated and used for swimming as well as lounging around on the pool ledge.

Infinity pools can come in all shapes and sizes, but they typically involve glass or acrylic walls with curved ends that blend into your outdoor landscape. These types of pools are usually built from scratch by professionals who can help you get the most effective design.

5. More Lights

In the past, pool lights were mainly used as safety features to help people navigate their way around the pool at night. These days, they are also used to create a more enjoyable experience and set the mood for your guests.

Lighting can be used to highlight special features of your pool landscape like fountains and waterfalls. It can also be used to create party atmospheres with colourful lighting effects which will make your party a big hit with everyone who attends it. In addition, romantic moods can be created by using low-level lighting replicating moonlight on a clear starry sky – perfect for late-night conversations while enjoying drinks outdoors!
