Have you finally decided to build a swimming pool? That’s wonderful news! Before you contact a professional Vancouver swimming pool contractor it is worth thinking about what custom features you would like to add your swimming pool design. Here is a list of our most requested features…
6 custom features you will want to include in your swimming pool design
1. Custom tiles
Adding colourful tiles to your swimming pool and deck can be a great way to personalize your pool. You could add a large key feature like a marine animal or create a more abstract design, it is up to you! We love the mosaic orca that the homeowners of the swimming pool above requested.
Adding a waterfall to your swimming pool design can be a great way to make your pool feel more luxurious. A large waterfall cascading into the end of a pool looks beautiful, especially when it is seamlessly incorporated into the surrounding landscape, making it look more natural.
To elevate your pool’s design even further, consider adding a hidden grotto behind the waterfall. Just picture swimming into your hidden grotto and relaxing there while listening to the cascading water, it would be like being on vacation – without the plane ride!
3. Sports package
This is one of our most requested add-ons for homeowners with kids and grandkids. Our sports package comes with a volleyball net and two basketball nets which provide kids of all ages with hours of entertainment! It is a great way to encourage the whole family to be more active.
4. Automatic pool cover
While this may not be the most exciting entry on this list, it is one of the more practical features. Adding an automatic pool cover is a great idea for homeowners with small children or pets, as it helps prevent accidents and keeps everyone safe. Since an automatic cover is built right into your swimming pool, they take up less space, are easy to operate, and look more aesthetically pleasing than a traditional cover.
5. Custom pool fence
While we’re on the topic of safety, another great feature to include in your swimming pool design is a custom fence. For pools built on the edge of a cliff, like the one above, adding a fence around the outer edge is a smart safety decision. If you choose a glass fence, it doesn’t even have to obstruct your view!

6. Infinity edge
Last but not least, the most requested feature by our clients for their custom swimming pools is an infinity edge. Infinity edge pools are an especially excellent option for properties that feature sweeping views. Make your home feel like a luxury hotel or a celebrity hideaway with the addition of this custom feature!
