Three Chic Designs for Pool and Spa Combinationsby Kevin Smith Author
Modern luxury pools aren’t complete without a custom spa to with them. This combination creates a refuge where individuals and families can enjoy both aquatic worlds simultaneously. There are several ways to integrate spas and swimming pools. Here are three options.
This design has the spa located inside the swimming pool and looks like part of the pool’s overall shape. Depending on the shape of the pool and location of utilities, an integrated spa can be attached to the corner, side, or end of the pool. The spa and pool are separated by a dam wall so pool water won’t leak into the heated spa water. The spa can be any shape and size, and can be finished with a variety of plaster colors, have distinct boarders, or adorned with other finishing materials, like glass mosaic tiles, to provide contrast between the spa and pool. Hiring a contractor to help design and build your backyard pool and spa combination is always a good idea, because they have the tools, knowledge, and training to create the perfect backyard oasis you have always wanted.
Attached spas are built outside or adjacent to a swimming pool, and look like separate entities. These spas can be designed to blend with the pool’s design or fabricated in an opposing shape. Attached spas are typically installed in the ground so they are level with the swimming pool they are attached to. Sometimes they elevated above the ground. Either way, one wall of the swimming pool is used as a wall for the spa. Attached spas are usually finished with the same materials as the swimming pool, and the joint wall is left uncapped to create more cohesion between the two entities. An elevated spa adds extra dimension and provides an attractive focal point. The spa is usually finished with stone or tile, and can be surrounded by faux rocks or boulders to create a more rustic or tropical look. These and many more materials can be installed by pool and spa contractors in Vero Beach, FL, and elsewhere.
Raised Perimeter-Overflow Spa
This type of spa is steadily increasing in popularity. The spa’s unique design effect is created by setting the walls of the spa lower than the water level so the water appears to be spilling into the pool. In actuality, a small, invisible containment vessel captures the water, which gets circulated back into the spa. A raised-perimeter overflow spa can be integrated with the swimming pool. The spa will appear to be lifted out of the pool and floating on top of the water. Using multicolored, iridescent glass tiles, which can be installed by pool and spa contractors in Vero Beach, FL, and elsewhere, creates an exceptionally elegant display.
