When you have an indoor pool, you don’t have to wait for the weather to cooperate in order to go swimming. Indoor pools offer a convenient way to swim for exercise or relaxation whenever you want. These pools can also add even more luxury to your home with the right features and design. Whether you’re thinking about installing a lap pool for working out or an elegant pool for unwinding, use these tips to help you decide on an ideal design.

Size and Shape

Your pool should be large enough to fit your needs, whether you’ll be the only one mainly using it or you have family or friends who will be using it as well. When it comes to shape, you can go with a traditional, rectangular design, which works well for a lap pool. If your pool is mostly for relaxation, you can choose from a wide range of shapes, including freeform shapes that are visually striking or an elegant oval or kidney-shaped option. 

Lighting

Owning an indoor pool means you can swim anytime during the year, but you’ll need good lighting sources if you plan to use it at night. Standard room lighting won’t provide the illumination you need for safe swimming. Installing underwater lights, wall sconces or lights along the edges of your pool area are all options for ensuring that you can swim safely when it’s dark out. Keep in mind that lighting also helps create a specific ambiance for your indoor pool. Consider colored lights for visual appeal or softer, white lighting for a more elegant look.

Retractable Roof and Skylights

If you're looking for an option that combines the inside with the outside, consider adding a retractable roof to the area. This type of roof can open and close as needed so that your indoor pool area can have more ventilation and natural light. Skylights are another option to consider when you want to feel like you’re outside while swimming. Skylights allow natural sunlight to seep into your indoor pool area and provide stunning starlight views at night. 

Water Features

The addition of water features can give indoor pools a more relaxing or exciting appearance, depending on your preferences. Add gushers or fountains as an elaborate visual display, or have a waterfall added to create a more natural and soothing swimming environment. Water jets with colored lighting can add a dramatic visual effect to your pool’s appearance.
