If your dream has been to have a pool in your own backyard, you are not alone. Navigating the process of building that dream pool, however, can quickly get out of hand unless the potential first-time pool buyer keeps these 3 things in mind:

1. How The Pool Will Be Used

Regardless of what your dream pool may look like, you have to be realistic about how it will be used. Do you want a pool as a place to swim? A place to take a cool and relaxing dip? Are you adding it for ambiance and appearance? Take the time to really consider how you (and others in the household) will want to use the pool. As varied as the opinions may be, expert pool designers like ours at Shasta are able to accommodate almost any want and desire.

2. What Shape Of Pool You Want

Once you know how the pool will be used, you can begin to consider the type of pool that you want. It is entirely possible to have a freeform or geometric pool that can both act as a lap pool and as a place to lounge. Come up with some ideas of what you want (i.e. crisp hard lines versus soft and more natural curves) and a pool designer will help you design the best pool for you.

3. Where the Pool Will Be Installed

There are so many things to be considered when choosing where a pool will be located. Some of these considerations include:

  • Privacy
  • The land its being built on
  • The proximity of the pool to the home
  • The amount of sun the pool will receive during the day

Homeowners have a lot of say in terms of where their pool will be installed, but depending on a number of environmental factors, your best option may not end up being a feasible option. Have at least 2 to 3 different locations planned when meeting with your pool designer.
