It’s time to design your dream luxury indoor pool. What should be the key steps when considering an indoor pool? Think shape, colours, depth, finishes, the style of your steps.
Will they offer simplicity of ease, or a glamorous focal point for your pool room?
You’ll need to design the pool environment, pool plant room, pipework design and environmental design. Then there’s your tiling options.
Collate Your Architect’s Plans
An architect will need to formalise your swimming pool design ideas, drawing them into precise plans that can be followed and implemented by a contractor.
Your architect will advise you as to how your design can best be adapted for secure construction and produce detailed drawings, 3D modelling and measurements to form a plan for your luxury indoor pool. They will negotiate with your contractor and make site visits to ensure they remain up to date on the progress of your luxury pool.
Finalise The Specification For Your Indoor Pool
You will need to collaborate with a specialist pool contractor during the specification stage of your luxury pool installation. There are a number of key decisions that must be considered in the planning stage to ensure a successful outcome for your pool build.
When finalising your specification, consider
- How often the pool will be used, and by how many people.
- Whether you would like to include a wellness area.
- Whether the pool will be used for leisure, fitness, or both.
- Whether your ideal depth is consistent (maybe for pool games), or whether you need a shallow end (perhaps for children).
- Whether you would like walk-in steps that stretch across an entire pool width, or less space-consuming steps.
- Whether you need an automatic cover; these require at least one end of the pool to be a square shape.
- Your ideal pool size. Popular sizes are 10m x 5m, or 12m x 6m, with a constant depth of 1.4m or shallow and deep ends of 1m and 1.6m respectively.
- Whether you would like a dedicated air handling unit or a unit that combines water and air temperature. These units can heat from a boiler, air source heat pump or ground source heating. Using a boiler is typically initially lower-cost, but running costs are greater.
- Whether you would like an overflow pool, or a traditional skimmer pool with a 75-150mm gap between the water and top pool edge.
- Whether you would like to manage the condition of the water using an automated dosing system.
- Whether you would like a chlorine or non-chlorine system.
Every luxury pool project is different, meaning that the cost for each pool is also different. Prices vary depending on the size and style of your pool and any work required to modify the building, as well as heating and dehumidifying equipment.
It is often costlier to install a pool in an existing building than it is to install a pool as part of the construction process for a new building. This is because the building will need to be underpinned if the pool will be near to any supporting walls. As the pool will be installed as a complete shell, access will need to be available for at least the size of the pool cross-profile.
Luxury pool prices increase based on the styles and extras that you specify. These might include:
- Swim jets
- Massage jets
- Water features
- Stainless steel pool fitting
- Colour-changing LED lights
- Chlorine-free pool water filtration
- Pool surround tiles
- Pool room feature wall tiles
- Additional spa pool
- Additional plunge pool
- Steam room
- Experience showers
