Timeless Swimming Pool Design Features

Over the many years that Guncast has been building luxury swimming pools in the UK, we’ve seen many design trends evolve and expire. However, there are some features that never seem to age, remaining a timeless constant in swimming pool design to this day. Here’s a few popular pool features that continue to transform ordinary swimming pools into an opulent oasis.

Beautiful Infinity Edge Pools

An infinity edge pool 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 beach-front 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.

Innovative Moving Floor Pool Systems

The best of both worlds. A moving floor swimming pool by Guncast is the cutting-edge solution where space is at a premium, inside or out.

Futureproof your home as the swimming pool area is seamlessly replaced with a solid movable floor that can then be used as a dance function venue, play area, dining hall or gym.

For example, this simple yet stunning outdoor swimming pool in the West Midlands features a moving floor system with self-depositing steps, giving a seamless pool surround. The innovative home automation system allows the client to control the floor, lights, counter current and pool temperature without having to even step outside. The green surroundings create a serene atmosphere with breath-taking views, and this bespoke pool is brilliant for both water and dry-side activities.

Eco-friendly Pool Finishes

It’s unlikely that eco-friendly pool features will ever go out of style. For those conscious of their carbon footprint, premium pool finishes that have a kinder impact on the environment are a must.

Guncast uses water treatments with a reduced level of chlorine, which 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 and ensure wonderfully clean water.

Guncast offers the latest UV and Ozone systems, ensuring wonderfully clean and clear water, with the absolute bare minimum of chemical additives.

Pool covers are also a great way of preserving heat, helping to save energy and keep the pool clear of debris.

Atmospheric Lighting Features

Lighting sets the tone, creates the desired mood and can transform the ambience of a luxury swimming pool.

Add beauty, drama and mystery to your pool environment, enhance water features and other pool accents, improve night-time visibility and safety, lift the mood and adapt to any occasion or event – all with the strategic use of light.

From fibre optic and LED lighting options, whatever the requirements, the wide array of lighting features available from Guncast will create the desired effect for years to come.
