Pool Remodel With 14 Luxury Upgrades

What does it take to take a pool remodel from an average renovation to a complete landscape transformation? Luxury upgrades from a custom water curtain to a 1000+ square foot pool house.

We recently completed a modern pool remodel in the Bay Area. The lot was just over 1 acre, but it looked much smaller due to the very dated pool design, chopped up yard layout and an overall lack of smart design.

In addition to the pool remodel, the home owner brought us in to create an entirely new look in the backyard space. You can see the walkthrough of the final resulting custom pool and spa and landscape design here.

What also makes this pool remodel such a huge transformation are the 14+ ultra-luxury touches that we incorporated into the design.

Let's walk through each one of these pool remodel upgrades. See something you'd love in your new pool design? Contact us.

Outdoor Daybed

An outdoor daybed is a luxurious addition to create a comfortable and stylish spot to relax and soak up the sun while lounging poolside. Add plush outdoor cushions and a custom umbrella and it's a great place to read a book or take a nap. Couches, loungers and daybeds all contribute to a resort-like feel.

Custom Articulated Umbrella

These umbrellas provide adjustable shade with the ability to tilt and rotate them to keep the shade over you desired throughout the day. They can be customized to match your home or pool's design. This client chose umbrellas that were secured into the ground, but have an extended reach to provide maximum coverage. 

Bocce Ball Court

Bocce ball is a classic Italian game that involves rolling your ball to get closest to the target ball, called a pallino. It adds an element of fun and leisure to the pool and backyard and is a great upgrade for those who enjoy entertaining and larger gatherings. This design incorporates artificial grass for a smooth roll and less water usage.

Water Curtain

A water curtain is a visually stunning feature that consists of a vertical sheet of water cascading down from a raised structure or wall. This is an unusual, custom design because it's coming out of the ceiling and onto a drain set into the veranda tile. The falling water creates a wonderful noise and enhances the overall ambiance of the pool area. This water curtain is illuminated with LED lights, turning it into a captivating visual display at night. 

Pool House

This 1000+ square foot pool house is the epitome of luxury, serving as a dedicated space including a bathroom, shower, a lounge area, and a bar. It offers a private retreat for poolside relaxation, entertaining guests, and hosting parties. The front is made up of multi-slide patio doors so that the entire front of the pool house can be opened up to the pool deck. There is even a large-screen television set into the outside wall that can be viewed from the pool, lawn or outdoor dining areas.

Sport Court

This sport court is a versatile addition to this pool remodel by providing a space for basketball (note the regulation-sized hoop and backboard) that can also be used for kids to play on, additional entertaining space or a workout area. 

Putting Green

This putting green was designed with a synthetic turf that mimics the look and feel of a golf course. While this is a great addition for golf enthusiasts, it can also offer another entertainment option for larger gatherings.

Raised Tree Planters

These raised tree planters add a touch of natural beauty and serenity to the pool area. They'll also create additional privacy as they grow, while still containing the roots enough to protect the pool and decking from invasive growth.

Gourmet Outdoor Kitchen

This gourmet outdoor kitchen takes the entire landscape to a whole new luxury level. It is equipped with  high-end appliances including a grill, refrigerator, sink with dual faucets and plenty of countertops for room to prep and serve. We intentionally and carefully designed this and all our outdoor kitchens to enhance the overall poolside experience by creating a natural flow between cooking, dining, and socializing.
