Summer is in full swing, and everyone wants to beat the heat. With the numerous people flocking to the beach, public pools, and other recreation centres, it might be hard to find a peaceful place to cool down, especially if you want solitude or silence.
If you don’t want to endure the noisy, crowded places, you have a private, pleasant watering hole instead! Plunge pools would be a perfect choice to transform your backyard into an outdoor oasis. You can take a dip in these quaint and cosy pools as much as you want, cool down in the summer, and even enjoy it all year round.
Fancy a plunge pool of your own? Here are some ideas you can try:
A Faux Pristine Pond
Recreate an unspoiled waterhole with an irregularly shaped fibreglass pool tinted in deep green. Surround it with paved stones, waterfall features or fountains, plantings and flowers, and nature-inspired pool furniture.
An Ancient Courtyard
Channel ancient Rome or Greece, and transform your courtyard into one of a different place and time. Choose pools with the distinctive angles and curves, maintain a perfectly manicured lawn, and furnish sparingly with clean white or neutral coloured items.
A Sleek, Sophisticated Spa
For a more contemporary plunge pool, find one with seating for lounging or socialisation, and go for classic blues or bolder greys and greens. Complement it with heaters or air pumps, sleekly lined decks or trimmed landscapes, and night lighting.
