If you’re looking to design a new Phoenix swimming pool in the new year, check out these popular pool design trends first!

Most of us love to spend countless hours lounging in the backyard during those hot summer days, but sometimes you just need to have a spot where you can get away form the sun’s blazing rays for a few moments to enjoy a drink and beat the heat.  Today we’re going to look at some of the “coolest” covered outdoor spaces that you can have built today so that you’re all ready to keep comfortable once summer hits:


Pergolas are a great addition to any backyard, and come in a wide variety of styles and sizes, making it easy for you to construct or have one built that’ll suit your own tastes and needs.  What makes pergolas a great choice for outdoor shading is that this type of shading still allow for some sunlight to come through, but it provides enough coverage to keep one cool when outdoors.  Whether you’re covering a seating area around the pool or your patio, consider adding some lighting or foliage to your pergola (such as some climbing vines or scented blossoms) to really add some “flavor” to its look.

Conservatory-Style Spaces

The upcoming year is going to be the return for conservatory-style spaces.  Though reallyconsidered to be an “indoor” spaces located in the outdoors, you can build a “conservatory” space as large or as small as needed. Many pool owners will be opting to create a conservatory space as a changing area, while others may be completely transforming their patio area so that the dining area will be within this magnificent space.


A simpler addition to any garden is the gazebo.  While most feature an octagon shape, gazebos can be found in a variety of shapes and can be built with a variety of different materials.  Some homeowners choose to build a gazebo over their spa area, while others like to create a cozy seating area with a fire pit for those chillier nights.
