Pool Features to Transform Your Pool into a Luxury Experience

Creating custom pools can be quite challenging. Custom pools require careful planning and attention to detail to ensure that they meet the client’s exact specifications while still being safe and functional.

One challenge when creating custom pools is incorporating special features such as vanishing edges or beach entries. These features require additional structural support due to their unique designs which means extra care must be taken during installation.

One of the challenges when building a pool is creating an appealing aesthetic that fits your home. This is where terraces come in handy.

Terraces are essentially flat areas built into the slope, creating multiple levels for your pool and surrounding area. They can be used to create separate spaces for lounging, dining, or other activities.

 One benefit of using terraces is that they can help manage water runoff and erosion control by providing more surface area to absorb water. Additionally, they can add depth and dimensionality to your pool design while also improving accessibility.

 When designing your terrace layout, it’s important to consider factors such as drainage, soil stability, and retaining wall placement. A professional pool builder can assist you in ensuring that your terrace design meets safety standards and complies with local regulations.

 By incorporating terraces into your hillside pool design, you’ll not only have a visually stunning addition to your property but also a functional space that maximizes useable outdoor living areas.

Infinity Edges

Infinity edges, also known as vanishing edges or negative edges, are a popular feature in hillside pool designs. These unique pool features create the illusion that the water extends beyond the edge of the pool and blends seamlessly with the surrounding landscape.

Infinity edges work by using an overflow system that collects excess water and redirects it back into the pool. This creates a continuous flow of water over one or more sides of the pool, giving it its signature “vanishing” effect.

One advantage of infinity edges is their ability to provide breathtaking views from any angle. With no visible boundary between where the water ends and where nature begins, these pools offer a truly immersive experience for swimmers.

However, installing an infinity edge requires careful planning and precise engineering to ensure proper water flow and structural stability. It’s important to work with experienced professionals who can design and install your infinity edge safely and effectively.

Infinity edges are a stunning addition to any hillside pool design. They offer both aesthetic appeal and functional benefits while creating an unforgettable swimming experience for anyone lucky enough to take a dip in them.

Waterfall and fountains

Waterfalls and fountains are popular pool features that can add beauty, tranquility, and relaxation to your hillside pool. Waterfalls mimic natural water flows, while fountains create stunning visual displays of cascading water.

Waterfall features come in various sizes and styles, from a simple sheet waterfall to a rock waterfall with multiple tiers. They can be integrated into the retaining wall or built separately as standalone structures. Some even incorporate lighting for an enchanting nighttime effect.

Fountains also offer many design options such as spouts that shoot straight up or arc over the pool’s surface. You can choose a classic look like tiered fountain or opt for contemporary geometric shapes.

Both features require careful planning during installation to ensure the proper flow rate and positioning for optimal aesthetic appeal. Working with experienced professionals is essential when incorporating these elements into your hillside pool design.

Consider adding a waterfall or fountain to your hillside pool project to create an oasis-like ambiance that you won’t want to leave!

Other custom features include:

  1. Lighting options
  2. Built-in spas
  3. Rock formations
  4. Slides

The choice is yours  and the right choice can turn your swimming pool into a backyard oasis for years to come.

What to Remember When Choosing Pool Features


When choosing which features to incorporate into your hillside pool design, consider how they will complement each other as well as enhance functionality while providing unmatched beauty.

 While pool features such as slides, waterfalls, and fountains can add beauty and fun to your swimming pool, it’s important to be aware that they also come with certain risks. 

 Make sure the pool remodeling company you hire is committed to following all safety guidelines and regulations when installing and using these features, and supervise children and inexperienced swimmers at all times. 

 Additionally, keep in mind that pool features can add to the cost and maintenance requirements of your pool, so consider these factors when deciding which features to include.

When you keep these pointers in mind, the result will be a truly unique outdoor space where you can relax and enjoy breathtaking views while cooling off in your own private oasis.
