WELCOME TO SEASON 5 | EPISODE 32
Diving Deep: Exploring the World of Pool Design
We want you to have all the knowledge you need to make the right choice, which is why I’m joined by expert Darin from Mint Design to dive deep into the world of pool design. In over a decade of designing pools and landscapes, Darin has been awarded multiple industry awards including a Best in Show Trophy and Gold Medal at the Melbourne Garden Show. He’s passionate about creating outdoor spaces that people can love and enjoy for years to come.
IN THIS PODCAST WE ARE TALKING ABOUT
Darin shares the biggest choices people need to make when building a pool for their home. How big should a pool be? What materials should you use? How will you heat the pool? There are so many more things to consider, and there are no one-size-fits-all answers here. The options need to be weighed up against your space, budget, and desire. Having expert input early on in this process is vital to ensuring you don’t get stuck with a pool that’s not suited to you.
We also explore the illusion of light in pools, highlighting how the water and tiles play off each other to create unexpected colours. The conversation then turns to the world of pool tiles, where they explore the different material and pattern options available, emphasising how each choice can drastically alter the visual appeal of a pool.
But what’s design without visualization? The hosts discuss the indispensable role of rendering in today’s design era. Through renders, designers can offer clients a glimpse into the future, showcasing near-accurate representations of the final pool look.
Like designing homes, designing pools is a dance of functionality, compliance, and aesthetics. And in this dance, the value of collaboration and the significance of expert insights cannot be overstated.
I hope this episode empowers you with a wealth of information on finding the right pool for your space, but also that it serves as a testament to the unmatched value of seeking out seasoned professionals in the field.
