The indoor pool in the house is operated all year round, which means that the owners and guests should like it.


The first thing to start with is the choice of a design solution that is best suited for a room.

Basic room requirements

Before proceeding to the design of poolsAt home, you should pay attention to some important points. This concerns the location of the bowl. The best option is to locate it on the first floor. Modern designers manage to place the pool on the balcony and on the roof, but such options should not be resorted for at least the reason that such structures require quality calculations, and they are always designed at a stage when the house itself is still on paper in the form drawing.


It is recommended to take care of good heating in the room and heat insulation of the bowl, as it is cool in the basements

Basement is also not the best choice. Firstly, it will require additional high-quality ventilation.

When choosing a ceiling design, you should stop yourchoice on stretch ceilings, as they are more practical, they are easy to install, and care for them, too, is notable for its simplicity.

For wall decoration is very important to choose not onlybeautiful, but also quality material. It must not only perform an aesthetic function, but also protect the surface from the appearance of fungi, mold, and corrosion. Water-repellent paints, glass, natural or artificial stone, ceramic tiles are ideal for such premises. Wood is permissible to use only under the condition that it is treated with a special compound to increase strength and moisture resistance.

How to choose a pool bowl?

In the standard sense, the pool hasrectangular shape is the most common option. It is good in that it requires less space and allows more efficient use of space, especially if the area allotted for construction differs in small areas. But the choice of swimming pools is not limited to the rectangular shape of the bowl.


In the standard sense, the pool has a rectangular shape - this is the most common option.

Modern design of pools for the houseinvolves the use of various types of bowls, since the appearance of the room itself largely depends on their shape. The bowl may be round, oval. Traditional forms have an important advantage. It will be easier to decorate such a pool; it is enough to use 2 contrasting colors in the design, for example, orange and blue, or black and white.


Depending on the layout of the room, the pool may have twists and turns.

There are also more complex species, withwhich the bowl is made in the form of a drop, wave, or has any other shape. Depending on the layout of the room, the pool may have twists and turns. In general, the more unusual the shape of the reservoir, the more original the structure itself looks.

On a note! An interesting way of arrangement is to give the pool a thematic shape, for example, to make a bowl in the form of a guitar, a heart.

The original version is in the form of a trace from the foot, in which, next to the large pool, there are 5 more oval-shaped fontos next to each other. This method is more suitable for spacious rooms in large areas.

The size of the bowl is determined by several factors:

  • floor space;
  • functional purpose;
  • the number of people who will be in the pool at the same time.
  • For a small family it is not necessary to arrangehuge pool, just choose the design of medium size. If the family is large and there are many small children, then it is better to make the pool more functional by dividing it into 2 parts of different depth.

    Another unusual design method, oftenfound on the photo of the pool design in the house is the creation of depth drops. One part of the pool can be made smaller by equipping a place for bathing children in it, and in the other one you can think of a pool space suitable for adults.

    Design of the pool

    Form factor and size determine the basic option.construction of the structure. For example, if you need a pool of irregular shape, then the only option is to dig the pit of the desired shape and fill its walls and bottom with concrete. If the form is not so important, you can purchase a collapsible structure or a stationary polypropylene bowl.

    The material of which the bowl is made affectspool design for the home. A bowl of concrete needs to be decorated with high-quality ceramic tiles, then the pool will last a long time, and only occasionally will require minor repairs.


    Swimming pool layout

    If used to create a bowlmetal collapsible structures, then the surface of the walls and the bottom must be covered with a layer of paint. The only caveat: the paint must be moisture resistant, otherwise it will not last long. It should also easily withstand exposure to chlorine and other substances used for water disinfection.


    Finishing pattern for swimming pool tiles

    For swimming pool design for home basedPlastic tanks usually do not use any additional materials. If you need a bowl with any decor, then you can buy it already with the printed pattern. Also for the decoration of pools they produce a special film, but this method of decor does not give the best result, and the material itself is quite expensive.


    DIY pool waterproofing scheme

    Plastic pools do not needadditional decoration, so the focus should be on the arrangement of the area around the pool. For example, if the walls of the room are decorated with wood, it is also better to line the deck with the same material. Sandstone or granite can be used for flooring.

    Concrete bowls are often veneered with ceramics. For this purpose it is not necessary to use monochromatic tiles or material with the same pattern. In the photo of the design of the pool in the house you can see interesting solutions - pools with unusual drawings and mosaics. For cladding, you can use marbled tiles or clinker with small pores. But the surface should not be smooth, as you can slip on it and get injuries of varying severity.

    The walls and bottom of the bowl can be painted with acrylic paint, but this option is less resistant,

    because it is used quite rarely. Another way to decorate a concrete bowl is to cover it with a special film, but this material can greatly increase the cost of the whole structure.

    In addition to blue, it is permissible to use andany other, but there are some nuances: white makes the water visually cold, and the walls of the bowl quickly become soiled and become an unpleasant gray tint.

    Green color also can not be considered successful. It is suitable for artificial ponds or, in extreme cases, for outdoor pools located on the site. Most shades of green do not create the most pleasant atmosphere in the room: the air seems more humid, and the water in the bowl is dirty and musty.
