You have decided that this is the year you are going to build a pool! You’ve identified a budget range and started to research local pool builders. Your head is swimming (no pun intended) with all of the decisions you need to make; from decking materials, colors and finishes, to the unlimited list of potential features you want included.

Putting together examples of what you like can help your pool builder hone in on your personal taste and style, and make the design process go more smoothly.
