Small pools, big features: Key commercial swimming pool trends

When it comes to commercial swimming pools, there’s a variety of options available to elevate your wet leisure facilities and your business. Let’s dive into the world of swimming pool features and explore the many options available, to offer you bespoke design, unparalleled luxury, and long-term durability.

Whether you’re running an upscale hotel, luxury spa resort, private members’ club, or exclusive fitness centre, understanding the latest commercial swimming pool features can help you provide an unforgettable experience for your customers and guests. Your aquatic haven should offer not only a refreshing respite but also a world of luxury and innovation.

Infinity Edge Pools

One of the most mesmerising features in commercial swimming pools is the infinity edge. These pools create a stunning visual effect where the water appears to flow endlessly over the edge, blending seamlessly with the surrounding landscape. Infinity edge pools provide a sense of tranquillity and luxury, making them a popular choice for high-end resorts and hotels.

 Waterfalls, Fountains, and Jets

Water features such as waterfalls and fountains can transform your swimming pool into a captivating oasis. The soothing sound of cascading water adds an element of calm, creating a serene ambience, while high pressure swan necks and massage jets can be used by your clients to help relieve aches, pains, and stress, taking relaxation to another level. These features can be customised to fit the style and theme of your commercial property, whether it’s a tropical paradise or a modern urban retreat.

Underwater Lighting

To extend the enjoyment of your commercial pool into the early mornings and evenings, or to create a relaxing ambience, consider incorporating underwater lighting. LED lights can be strategically placed to illuminate the pool and any water features, creating a mesmerising display of colour. This not only enhances safety but also adds to the aesthetic quality of your swimming pool. 

 In-Pool Furniture for hydro-massage and relaxation

With Guncast’s team of expert swimming pool designers, it’s easy to get creative with your furniture ideas. In-pool furniture adds an extra layer of comfort to your swimming pool, taking relaxation to a new level. Whilst some swimming pools or spas work better with traditional built -in seating, others lend themselves to individual loungers and chairs which come in a wide variety of styles, or explore your options further with dual stainless-steel neck massage units, a hydro massage bench or Guncast’s signature ‘Hot Seat’. Whatever the vision, Guncast specialise in creating luxury spaces to enjoy the ultimate in tranquillity and relaxation.

If you’re still in the research stage of making your swimming pool a reality, and you’re interested in incorporating in-pool furniture, we recommend choosing a pool with a durable surface. Vinyl liner pools tear easily and are not a good option for built in seats. Concrete and stainless-steel pools are good options because their surfaces are resistant to wear.

The furniture around your swimming pool is just as important as the furniture in it. Comfortable recliners mean your guests can take breaks from the pool, and so relax and unwind for longer. There are all sorts of recliners available, from adjustable recliners to ridged, heated recliners, making it simple to find the perfect solution to compliment your swimming pool vision.

The SWAY Pendulum Lounger offers the Bespoke craftsmanship and high quality you can always expect from our partners at KLAFS. This contemporary, timeless design rocks you into a refreshing power nap with its gentle pendulum movement.

Heated Pools

For year-round pool enjoyment, consider installing a pool heater. Whether you’re in a chilly climate or simply want to cater to guests in cooler seasons, a heated swimming pool ensures that your commercial pool isn’t weather dependant, no matter where in the world you are located.

 Exercise and Hydrotherapy Features

Struggling for space? Redefine the traditional swimming pool experience with powerful exercise and therapy features, offering the same fitness potential as a large-scale pool. Whether it’s for fun, fitness, or competitive training, a swimming machine or counter current unit, provides a swim-in-place alternative to long length pools. For a truly immersive workout explore the endless benefits of walking or running in the water with an underwater treadmill, expand on the experience you offer to include more opportunities for weight loss, rehab, pain management, and cross-training.

Eco-Friendly Pool Systems

Incorporating eco-friendly systems like solar heating, energy-efficient pumps, and water-saving filtration systems not only reduces your property’s carbon footprint but also appeals to environmentally conscious guests. This sustainable approach can set your commercial pool apart from the competition.

Make Your Swimming Pool Accessible

Inclusivity is essential, and commercial pools should cater for all guests with varied abilities. Features like pool lifts, ramps, and zero-entry access make the pool area accessible to all, ensuring that everyone can enjoy the water.

Commercial swimming pools are no longer just places to cool off, they have evolved into sporting and luxury destinations. By incorporating some of these features, you can create a commercial pool that stands out and leaves a lasting impression on your guests. From infinity edges to high pressure swan necks, each feature contributes to a unique and memorable aquatic experience.
