Pool Design

Frequently Asked Questions

It’s simple: why do you want a pool? 

  • Create a place for kids to play and adults to relax
  • Make a tranquil haven in a small backyard
  • Swim uninterrupted laps for exercise
  • To have a vacation at home 

Also, think about where the pool will sit in your backyard relative to your alfresco, indoor entertaining areas and aspect. Do you want to see your pool from inside your house? Where in your backyard is a nice sunny spot protected from the wind and away from large trees? Do you want space around your pool for beach chairs or an outdoor sun lounger? Finally, where will you store your filtration equipment, robotic pool cleaner and the kids pool toys?

Finding the best swimming pool design is easy when you have a clear vision for your dream backyard pool!

The difference between light and dark pool colors
Light Pool Colors
  • Draws more attention to the pool itself, so if you want your pool to be the centerpiece of your backyard, choose a light color
  • Are more likely to draw your eye to the bottom of the pool, showing leaves and debris. If you want a pristine-looking pool 365 days of the year, a light color may not be the best option for you
  • Light colored pool shells are cooler overall than dark pools because they reflect the light and heat
  • A pool positioned in full shade benefits from being a light color to combat the effects of the lack of sunlight
Dark Pool Colors
  • Tends to allow the pool’s surroundings and other landscaping features to stand out
  • Absorbs and retains heat more efficiently
  • Dark fiberglass pool colors will be naturally warmer all year round
  • Hides leaves, dirt and debris (and spiders!)

Things to consider when choosing your fiberglass pool color

  • The color of a fiberglass pool shell is not resemblant to how the pool will look when filled with water. A sand-colored pool shell will produce green-tinted water, and a white surface will sparkle like the water of the iconic Australian Whitehaven Beach.
  • Do you want your swimming pool to be a central element of your backyard or blend into the surroundings and garden?
  • Will your pool blend seamlessly with your home and backyard design, or do you want it to stand out and be a central feature?
