Salt Pools Project 7
The owners of this family home wanted to extend their living area by seamlessly combining their indoor and outdoor spaces, while also bringing the ‘wow’ factor to their home. From ground level, this Salt Pools project is undeniably elegant and eye-catching, but it’s below the surface where this pool really stands out from the crowd.
Floor-to-ceiling glass windows in the home’s open-plan kitchen, dining and living area combine with frameless glass fencing outside to blur the lines between the indoors and outdoors and create a feeling of openness. However, the integration of the pool with the home really shines downstairs, where a 4.5m Perspex pool wall in the rumpus room provides a striking view of inside the pool from within the home.
Creating this spectacular feature was a challenging task that required the expertise that only an experienced pool builder like Salt Pools could provide. The 4.5m x 4.5m pool was constructed out of concrete, with the feature Perspex wall running along the house.
The ingenious design of the pool allows the sparkling blue Quartzon interior, complete with waterline tiles, to be enjoyed throughout the home. Spa Electrics underwater LED lights highlight the interior in the evening.
With energy-efficiency in mind, all of the pool’s equipment is on timers, which can be run in off-peak times.
