Top 5 Swimming Pool Trends for 2015 Focus on AquaTekture
Award-winning Pool Designer and Outdoor Lifestyle Author Joseph M. Vassallo, CBP, APSP Fellow of Paragon Pools in Las Vegas provides his tips on the top 5 pool design trends for 2015
1. Fire: Fire elements are definitely a “hot” design feature in backyards across the country. I suggest looking for ways to incorporate them as accent elements around the pool, not just as a source of warmth.
2. Glass tile: Glass tile resources have become more prevalent, thus the variety of colors and dimensions provide designers with an artist’s pallet of versatility. Although, glass tile is still considered a luxury amenity in pool construction, one can incorporate spot use of glass tile to enhance focal points; such as columns, spillways, and raised areas.

4. Spouts: Accent spouts are the new “must have” when it comes to designing water elements into the pool. Accent spouts have a more soothing and gentle sound as compared to a long linear water feature. In addition, the shape and size of the spouts adds an artistic, ornamental element to the pool.
