I WATER FEATURES Here are a few tips to create the perfect pool and water feature design. Create a Recessed Lounge Area Talk about an attention grabbing addition to your pool design! In fact, a recessed lounge area lets your guests sit in the pool without getting wet. This unique pool design feature lets you add a recessed seating area “inside” the pool so your guests can enjoy their pool even if they don’t want to get wet. Pool Design with a View If you have an amazing view, like in Palm Jumeirah or lake view villas in Emirates Hills , you need to make the most of it. Whenever possible, your pool design should take advantage of your view. Consider adding steps to a raised seating area to allow your friends and family to enjoy the stunning views. Infinity pools are a great addition to views as you raise them to get a view from the house and also enjoy the view in front of you. Nighttime Appeal There is nothing quite like swimming under a starry sky. With the proper lighting, you can create an entire ambience dedicated to your nighttime dinners and entertaining. LED multicoloured lights add enhanced colour to the nighttime feel. Consider adding a stone fireplace or firewall next to your pool for an additional natural element to take your pool design to the next level. Feature walls by the pool are great to hide the pump room, shower area and heat and chill pump also beside creating a great ambience. Cascading Waterfalls and Water Features Adding water features to your swimming pool or solitary water features adds both elegance and excitement to your custom pool. Your choices of water features are endless. In fact, your choices are limited only by your imagination. Very few things enhance the fun and excitement of your pool design like a custom water feature. With the right water feature, you inject new sounds, sights and excitement to your pool design. From cascading waterfalls and pool gushers to swimming pool scuppers, natural rock walls, and stunning grottos, a custom water feature will take your pool design to the next level. Entrance Water Features At the entrance, water feature is a welcoming feature as you and your guests enter your house. Gurgling sound of water creates a nice feeling. Made near the entrance wall or in the entrance garden area, they create a nice prelude to the main garden pathway.
