Swimming Pool Trends for 2019
Over the last decade, luxury swimming pool design has evolved, from sleeker, elegant finishes to more requirements for environmentally considerate filtration systems. Based on the bespoke projects Guncast has worked on throughout the year, here are just a few of the popular swimming pool trends we expect to see in 2019.
Beautiful infinity edge pools
An infinity edge offers a unique and stylish twist on traditional swimming pool design, providing a truly idyllic leisure space for you to enjoy. Infinity edge pools are perfect for enhancing the surrounding views, such as this stunning pool in East Sussex that overlooks the English Channel.
Desirable for high-end properties, this sleek design feature creates a mirror-like effect when the water is still and looks especially striking when contrasted with dark, slate tiling.
Sleek, dark pool tiling
Whilst lighter tiling has been a favourite in previous years of pool design, darker colour schemes create an ocean-like effect that is fast becoming an equally desirable option. For an ambience that exudes tranquility, a dark interior pool finish gives a mysterious edge with an abundance of class.
Eco-friendly filtration systems
A reduced level of chlorine is highly requested amongst swimming pool owners, especially by those who want to lead a more environmentally-friendly lifestyle. Ozone and Ultraviolet (UV) systems provide a great balance between being heavily reliant on chlorine and going completely natural.
Guncast offers the latest UV and Ozone systems, ensuring wonderfully clean and clear water, with the absolute bare minimum of chemical additives.
For busy cities, such as London, one notable way to significantly elevate property value is by digging deeper and building a basement. If your home already boasts the extra square feet that a basement offers, why not make the most of your space with an expertly designed indoor pool?
Basement pools are a great selling point for your property and provide a secluded area for private relaxation to melt away stresses. Guncast can create elegant basement pools using the available space effectively and efficiently, so there’s no need for compromise.
Sauna and steam wellness facilities
What better way to enhance your swimming pool than with your own luxury private spa area? Installing a premium sauna or steam room (or both!) adjacent to your pool will complete your leisure experience and add a whole new dynamic to your home. Becoming increasingly popular for residential properties in the UK as well as high-end hotels and clubs, the pure indulgence a bespoke wellness area offers is hard to match.
Setting the trends in wellness, Guncast offers a variety of euphoric sauna and steam facilities as unique as their owners. Proud to partner with industry leaders KLAFS, we can provide thermal cabins that will relax, detoxify and soothe the body and soul.
