Outdoor Swimming Pool Design Trends in 2023

As the temperatures start to rise and summer approaches, many homeowners are beginning to think about ways to beat the heat. One popular solution is to install an outdoor swimming pool, and who better to trust with your swimming pool design project than the award-winning experts at Guncast?

Not only does a home swimming pool provide relaxation and fun for the family – there are also the health benefits of swimming as a cardio and strength-training workout. At Guncast, we pride ourselves on creating bespoke, modern, and innovative swimming pool designs for our clients. We like to stay ahead of the popular contemporary styles in swimming pool design. Here are some trends we have observed.

Natural look swimming pool designs

Many homeowners opt for natural-looking swimming pools that incorporate elements such as rocks, plants, and water features for a naturistic look. Here is a Guncast residential project with similar guidelines in Oxfordshire. We created an outdoor swimming pool with unique water feature, finished in bottle green mosaic tiling. The surround is made with York stone tile and coping, which blends seamlessly into the rustic setting of the property. Pools such as this are not only aesthetically pleasing, but also help to create a sense of tranquillity and relaxation in your garden. When it comes to landscaping around the swimming pool area, many property owners choose more minimalistic designs. Simple, clean lines and a focus on greenery and natural elements help to create a sense of calm and tranquillity, while also providing a visually stunning backdrop to the swimming pool.

Boutique hotel style Infinity edge swimming pool and vitality pool

In terms of shape and size, it is important to incorporate an outdoor swimming pool into the existing garden space. A recent Guncast project, this residential infinity edge swimming pool and vitality pool project in Surrey consists of a modern shape and design which complements the stunning garden landscaping. It makes use of the natural levels of the garden. Swimming pools can be designed by Guncast to fit the style of any garden.

Moving Floor Swimming Pools or Hidden Pools

Of course, modern luxury swimming pools are incorporating more of the latest technology. In 2023 and beyond, we expect to see an increase in the use of smart technology in swimming pool design. From automated cleaning systems to remote control features, homeowners can now control almost every aspect of their swimming pool with the touch of a button. Take a look at this stunning outdoor swimming pool with a moving floor, a residential project in the West Midlands.  This bespoke outdoor pool features a moving floor system with self-depositing steps, giving a fashionably seamless pool surround. The home automation system allows the client to control the floor, lights, and pool temperature without having to even step outside. The pool itself is also fitted with a Jetstream Triva counter current unit – a sophisticated and trendy exercise technology which is quickly gaining traction amongst fitness enthusiasts for resistance training.

Another custom-made moving floor swimming pool was designed by Guncast for a client in Manhattan Beach, California – you can watch the video here. For premium luxury, hydro spa features were added throughout the wellness pool at this beautiful beach house property. The pool project also involved the build of an underground mechanical room, which fit well into the scheme of up and down settings.
