How could your lifestyle change with a pool?

How would a pool in your new home design change your lifestyle?

There's nothing better than coming home from a long day at work, kicking the shoes and clothes into a corner, and going for a swim. This is especially important in summer, when the sun beats down on us all day - the winter can be great as well though, as a heated pool can feel just like a big spa.

So many of our home designs here at G.J. Gardner Homes offer the perfect outdoor space for a pool of your own - but how might this addition change your lifestyle?

Taking the plunge

Not only will a pool add an amazing aesthetic feature to your property, it will also be useful all year round. Take a lovely landscaped garden, put a pool in the middle and you've got a resort paradise right outside your door.

You can also spend some fantastic quality time in the pool with your family. Loved ones will have a fabulous time swimming and playing together, do you want to make it a part of your lifestyle?

The Royal Life Saving Society of Australia states that children will be safer in the water, both at home and the beach, by learning sound practices at home. That means parents should take note and help their kids to have the best possible start to life with water safety lessons!

Young children are often the subject of accidents around water, but these can be prevented easily. All you have to do is install a fence around your pool and kids won't be able to just wander into a potentially dangerous area. Swim and Survive makes it simple.

Fences can also be great for the feel of a home. Try out a glass fence for a truly modern look, or even a stone wall to give your new house and land package a traditional appearance.

Making a statement

It can look great and be useful for encouraging kids to get away from their screens.

Pushing aside the useful aspects of a pool, there is also the idea that it can be a lovely feature in a garden. It can look great and be useful for encouraging kids to get away from their screens which is so common in our digital age, but it will create a lovely atmosphere for all of your outdoor entertaining.

The soft trickle of water over a rock pool or a coloured light underwater to illuminate the area can change the mood for the better, and we think you'll love it.
