With summer officially here, you’re probably spending all of your time thinking about laying by the pool. Summer days spent lounging Custom home pools come in all different sizes and shapes, but make sure you consider these details.poolside or even floating on the water are some of the best days. When you build a custom home, you can also build custom home pools that are planned and built specifically with your family in mind. That means the water slide your kids have always wanted can be installed and the connected hot tub you’ve always dreamed of can be just a short swim away.

Custom home pools allow homeowners to have the pool of their dreams with all of the features they can think of. As you dream about your pool, here are 5 details you probably haven’t thought about:

1. Recessed Lounge Area

Take a break from splashing around the pool in your recessed lounge area. Whether it’s in the middle of the pool or off to the side, you can have your builder install a lounge area complete with an umbrella and a round seating area. The recessed lounge is a great place to enjoy a snack, drink, or just hang out on hot days.

2. LED Lights

Custom home pools should be enjoyed day and night, but traditional pool lights can be harsh and ineffective. Instead, install LED lights in the walls and floor of your pool for a cool ambiance for night time dips. You can also install and add different lighting options for outside of the pool and around your deck.

3. Rock Waterfall

Relax under the waterfall or simply let the gentle splashing of the water soothe you to sleep as you lounge by the pool. The rock waterfall is a great feature and detail to add to your pool. The best part? They come in a lot of different styles and sizes, so you can easily customize it to fit your personal tastes.

4. Swim-Up Bar

What could be better than swimming in the pool and then swimming right up to your own personal bar? Complete the experience with underwater seats. You create a custom bar that is fully stocked with your favorite drinks, a fridge, and even an ice maker, so you never have to settle for a warm drink.

5. Natural Privacy

If wooden privacy fences aren’t your thing, then consider using native grasses, trees, or shrubs to create a sense of privacy around your pool. These natural barriers allow you to enjoy the pool and nature at the same time without compromising any aesthetic.
