Installing a swimming pool can sometimes be the start of an endless journey of decorating, designing, adding, and improving your pool as the highlight of your home’s outdoor space. But a must for any swimming pool, whether or not it is state-ordained, is a swimming pool fence to surround the area and prevent any accidental drowning. Merge safety with your own personal style when you install a pool fence and you’ll find that it will blend in perfectly with its surroundings. Here are some ideas to inspire you:
1. Horizontal wooden fences for that country vibe
If you have a rustic design theme going on in your home, then choosing a swimming pool fence that reflects that style helps bring everything together seamlessly. This helps prevent your fence from sticking out and interrupting the scenery. A wooden fence with horizontal bars is also easy to install and easy to maintain and its light and breezy design helps keep the space timeless and elegant.
2. Limestone fences for a modern clean look
Some pools are so effortlessly stylish and modern that using a normal fence may actually do more harm to that aesthetic. In that case, choosing something more unique like a low limestone wall that closes off the swimming pool can elevate that style and also provide a low wall that can also double as seating for big pool parties. Stone can last forever when well taken-care of, so take the time to learn how to maintain limestone.
3. Concrete blocks for giving a minimalist and industrial feel to your pool area
You don’t have to spend a fortune to get a good fence for your swimming pool. Concrete is durable, convenient, and it is also a relatively affordable material. For concrete fences, it is best to use the material in concrete blocks that are stacked on top of each other. The hole in the middle of each block allows air and light to enter the area and allows the area to look more spacious. And if you have a concrete pool deck, then you can ask your concrete contractor to match your concrete fence to your concrete pool deck.
4. Brick walls for an old-school charm to the outdoors
Brick walls are not always easy to maintain, but they do add a beautiful charm to a swimming pool. But to prevent brick fences from looking too dated, make sure to keep the height low and decorate and soften the brick with plants and grasses that can also keep it from looking too harsh.
5. Strong steel fences get the job done
If you’re looking for an elegant solution that can adapt to the changes in design you’ll make in the future to your outdoor space, then steel fences get the job done extremely well. They make for strong fences so you know your children will be safe from accidents. But they also age extremely well, so you won’t have to worry about replacements for a very long time.
