This past summer’s days of glorious weather proves that you really do need a swimming pool if you live in Melbourne! But whatever the season, a beautifully designed and well-positioned pool will significantly elevate the aesthetic appeal and functionality of a property, increasing its value.
Darin Bradbury, Director, Senior Designer, MINT Pool & Landscape Design, says that now more than ever people are looking to their own backyards for outdoor living solutions that are both contemporary and timeless.
“Designs for swim-up pool bars and built-in pool loungers, lush tropical planting schemes, outdoor showers and upgraded alfresco entertaining areas have been in strong demand,” he said.
With many families happy to continue spending more of their leisure time at home rather than travelling, we think it’s definitely worth splashing out on a house with a stunning resort-style pool and alfresco area.
