Is your hotel or residential building in need of a new draw? Looking for a feature that brings guests to your establishment? A custom pool is a statement piece that does just that. Commercial pool design is a rewarding process that marries aesthetics, functionality and safety, and these considerations will ensure your oasis meets your needs and exceeds your expectations.

What is the pool’s purpose and audience?

What type of guests grace your property? Better yet, what ideal crowd should your waters attract? The commercial pool-building process begins by defining its purpose and audience. These details help your builder tailor the design effectively. Is it a family-centric attraction or a serene adult retreat? Understanding the pool’s intended role allows you to make design decisions that align with the desired experience.

What is the best use of your available space?

To optimize the use of your space, you must balance pool size with its surrounding amenities. Where will cabanas and lounge areas be placed? Will there be a featured poolside bar? Where is the most convenient entrance location? Aesthetic choices can wow your guests at first sight, but functionality will keep them returning for more.

How will safety regulations influence your design?

Safety is paramount in commercial pool design. While local regulations may influence your choices, safety features such as fencing, alarms and accessible entrances can seamlessly integrate into your pool plans. Your designer can guide you in incorporating safety measures that are discreet yet effective.

What design choices will match your branding?

Commercial pools act as an extension of your brand. When designing your oasis, consider the establishment’s overall aesthetics and how your pool can emanate it. Every detail should showcase your space’s personality, and Aqua Blue Pools’ can help you choose design elements, such as decorative pool tiles, that speak to your space.

How will guests use your pool?

The custom nature of commercial pools allows for exciting enhancements! By incorporating water features, like bubbler fountains, spas or play areas, you can tailor your space for any experience. Designs should also consider your pool’s functionality, including circulation, filtration and heating systems, to ensure optimal water quality and a comfortable swimming environment.

Are you creating an inclusive swimming experience?

Inclusivity is key in modern pool design. Zero-entry points, ramps and lifts are all available options that ensure accessibility for all patrons. Embrace sustainability by exploring energy-efficient technologies and selecting durable, low-maintenance materials that contribute to the pool’s long-term health and eco-friendliness.
