Transform Your Kitchen Space

Hello, my name is Katy and this blog is dedicated to how you can improve the interior of your home. Last year, I renovated my kitchen and it completely changed my life. Although I am really happy with the results, I didn't expect it to be so challenging. I kind of jumped in at the deep end, ripped my old kitchen out and then realised I had no idea how to install a new one or even what design I would like to choose. Thankfully, my friend who is a bit of an expert at these things guided me through the entire process and I learnt a lot of useful things. Since then, I have started to rennovate the rest of my home and garden.

Different Designs You Can Consider When Installing a Pool

Having a pool in your backyard is no longer simply about having somewhere to cool off during the sweltering summer months. Although basic rectangular shaped pools were a re staple in the past, homeowners are now looking to unique pool designs to enhance the curb appeal of their home. This not only improves the aesthetics of your backyard, but could also increase the resale value of your property. If you are considering installing a pool in your backyard, here are some of the different designs that you could consider.

Circular pool designs 

The inclusive shape of a circular pool makes it all the better for interacting and socializing. However, instead of simply installing a circular pool on its own, it would be best if you incorporated this design with a different pool designs. For instance, if you already have a rectangular pool in your backyard, a smaller circular pool installed adjacent to it can help you socialize better when you have guests around. Alternatively, if you do not have a pool, you could opt to install a lap pool that would enable you to get some exercise. Then install a circular pool adjacent to it for relaxing in. This gives you the best of both worlds when it comes to pool design!

Freeform pool designs

As the name suggests, freeform pool designs are custom made with the homeowner's preferences in mind. Although freeform pools were typically created from concrete, more and more manufacturers are opting to use fiberglass as their main material. This is because the fiberglass takes a shorter time to create the swimming pool and it is also a low maintenance option for the homeowner. Freeform pool designs are great for individuals who may not have a significant amount of space in their yard. The freeform pool enables them to make the most of what is available as the design can have as many or as few curves as you would want.

Infinity pool designs

Although infinity pools are typically associated with spas and resorts, hey are steady making a mark in Australian homes too. An infinity pool is one that gives the illusion of the water edge extending all the way into the horizon. This effect is accomplished by including edges on the pool that allow the water to spill over continuously and recirculated back into the swimming pool. If you have a considerable amount of space in your backyard available, you should consider installing an infinity pool to create the illusion of never ending space.
