Add Beauty and Grace To Your Home With An Infinity Edge Pool
Swimming pool designs have evolved significantly over the years. With technological advancements and endless engineering possibilities, pools are now marvels of contemporary architecture. A pool is no longer just a poured wall construction or a hole in the ground; pools have become fancy and artistic. If you’re looking to add a unique flair to your home, an infinity/vanishing edge pool is exactly the way to go.
You've most likely seen infinity pools in movies and on television; they are sometime called vanishing edge pools. These swimming pools seem to go on forever and are built so that the water flows over one or multiple sides of the pool, giving the illusion that the water is cascading off into the horizon. Vanishing edge pools bring a touch of elegance to any backyard.
At ground level, infinity pools can be installed near natural water sources; different types of water can interact beautifully. Vanishing edge pools work wonderfully in backyards with a view. People generally buy houses with views because they’d like to enjoy the beautiful landscape and a vanishing edge pool can enhance the natural beauty of the landscape. Homes with elevation changes and open space are very suitable for vanishing edge pools. The vanishing edge of the pool can be laid out so that it overlooks the edge of your backyard. If your home has a view, then a vanishing edge pool can add to the ambiance and beauty of your backyard as it flows into the natural landscape.
With these types of pools, the sky's the limit when it comes to design and layout. Infinity edge pools are usually constructed with gunite, which can be made into almost any shape or design. The water flowing over the edges is captured and recycled back into the pool.
Vanishing edge pools have to be carefully constructed, and once you make the decision to get one, the next step is to contact an experienced swimming pool contractor, specifically one who has lots of experience with installing vanishing/infinity edge pools, like Selective Designs.
