Pool designs often use water features to improve the overall look and feel of a custom pool. If you are creating an inground pool, you have a lot of decisions to make. Sometimes it can be overwhelming to consider all of your options for pool features. Luckily, when you work with Pools by Design we will help you go over all of your options in detail so you can make an informed decision. Every home is unique, and so is every pool!
One option that works with just about any type of pool is the inclusion of rain curtains. Rain curtains are sheets of water that fall into your pool or hot tub, generally from a slit in a wall. These can be broad sheets of water or can include multiple streams of water to mimic rain falling. Pools including rain curtains often look more elegant and high-end.
Here are just a few of the ways rain curtains can help improve pool designs:
If you build a custom pool and spa, you want to make sure these two elements connect. Otherwise, your backyard can look disjointed and awkward. Pool designs should take this into account and include water features or design elements to connect your hot tub and your pool.
A rain curtain can spill from your spa into your pool, similar to a spillover spa or infinity pool design. You can also have your spa elevated above your pool and include a rain curtain that falls from a wall on the edge of your spa. Either of these options helps create a connection between your jacuzzi and your pool.
Rain curtains also help you accent various areas of your pool design. People’s eyes are more likely to be drawn to wherever you place this water feature. As a result, you can include rain curtains strategically to draw attention to the entrance of your pool, to your spa, or to any element of your swimming pool design.
You can also make a rain curtain a focal point by including a tiled wall for it to fall from. This wall can include mosaic tiles, natural tile design, or anything else you desire. This makes the rain curtain the center of your pool and makes it a topic of conversation when your friends and family visit.
Aside from their aesthetic appeal, rain curtains are fun elements to include in your pool area. Kids can swim underneath them, which can be a lot of fun when they have friends over for pool parties. Most pools do not have rain curtains, so they are a unique element of your pool design that people are sure to enjoy.
These design elements are also incredibly relaxing. Watching the water flow into your pool can be therapeutic, and not many people get to enjoy that experience in their own backyard. It can also feel very relaxing to swim or float underneath this water feature.
