What Makes a Modern Pool Look That Way in Howard County, Dayton, Glenwood, Glenelg, Mt. Airy, and the Surrounding Areas

There are some pools that look old and in need of an upgrade, even when they are new, and then there are modern looking pools that look great even if they have been around for years in Howard County, Dayton, Glenwood, Glenelg, Mt. Airy, and the surrounding areas. But what elements make for a modern pool? At Absolute Landscape & Turf Services, Inc., we have found that there are a few things that can help to set apart a pool as modern, and these can be utilized separately or in combination. The shape of your pool can make it look stale and normal or it can provide a modern look. The materials that you use will also impact the impression of people regarding your pool. And when you work with our design team, we will use all manner of approaches to give you the modern looking pool that you want as your outdoor escape.

Important Aspects to A Modern Pool

Modern looking pools tend to be minimalists when it comes to various amenities like water slides and other additions. They don’t have these extras and instead really just have subtle lighting along with a few pieces of patio/pool furniture. As the saying goes, “less is more” in these cases. Another item that makes a pool modern in look and feel is the decking material that is used. In this case, natural stone pavers or travertine are ideal material choices that will look great around your pool.

The shape of your pool also is a giveaway if it would be considered a modern looking pool. Geometric shapes like rectangles and squares, along with defined angles all point to classic pool design. Odd-shaped pools can be dramatic, but they also have a very different look. Another piece to consider is adding fire elements near the pool, like fire braziers or torches.

Keep Things Simple

For most people the challenge will become keeping things out of the design that could complicate things and make the look busier than desired. When working with our design experts we can help to keep your vision in mind for a modern-looking pool and help to remind you that you want to have less going on with the pool, not more. We will also keep the rest of your landscaping in mind with the final design so that it all flows together as a complete unit and not have parts stand out from the rest.

Modern pools are both inviting as well as beautiful. Their simplicity helps to calm the mind and provide a place to relax and let the cares of the world disappear.
