The main areas to consider are the size, shape, and functionality of your pool, along with the type of water you’d like to swim in.

Whether it’s a lap pool, family pool, plunge pool, or infinity pool – Aquaform Pools can assist with them all to create your dream pool.

You may also want to take a look at our Finishing Touches page, which goes one step further and looks at things like tiles and pebblecrete. These aspects will ultimately help to determine the colour of your pool, and the overall look and feel you desire.

It's not the size that matters. Or is it?

Size & Shape

The size and shape of your pool is often determined by the surrounding land, size of plot, and your family's wants and needs. Bigger is not always best, and it is important to find a balance between design, size, functionality, and the way your pool works with the rest of your home. We will look at all of these aspects to help determine what is going to work best for you.

Fun, laps, investment, or simply cooling down. What is your priority?


Think about your main reason for wanting to build a pool. Is it somewhere for the kids to burn that energy, or somewhere for you to exercise? Perhaps it's for cooling down in the summer months, or simply adding value, fun, and style to your home. Start to list your priorities in order, as this will help in the design process of your new pool.

Never overlook the importance of a beautiful step

Steps, Seats, & Benches

The steps, seats, and benches in your pool serve three critical purposes; the functionality of entering and exiting your pool, how you relax around your pool, and how your overall design will look on completion. A well thought out step or bench can turn a pool into something really special. We can talk you through the design options to see what will suit you and your family.
