Designing Lavish Swimming Pools in Basements

By Andy Carr on Tuesday 23rd of June 2015

With the recent rise in popularity of basement conversions, swimming pools have become something that people can finally find space for. Particularly in big cities across the pond like London, where every square foot comes at a premium and most people have very modest sized gardens, the basement conversion has opened up the opportunity for some incredible indoor swimming pool designs....underground.  Perhaps New York is next on the basement conversion trend?


Before You Start

The Design by Guncast team has been building luxury swimming pools for over 40 years, and has a huge portfolio of incredible indoor and outdoor swimming pools, but recently the focus has shifted to more subterranean levels across the pond. Before you get out a spade though, it's important to plan carefully – giving consideration to plant room location, access to services, planning permission, water proofing and natural daylight out the outset is crucial. That's why it's important to choose a reputable swimming pool design and construction company like Design by Guncast.

What Kind of Basement Swimming Pool?

Building a retrofit basement means that you've got the option to have whatever pool design you prefer, you'll certainly have enough space for it. But if you want to add a swimming pool and not lose any space at all, a moving floor swimming pool is the perfect solution - giving the option of covering your pool with a moving platform which acts as a false floor.

A Perfect Finish

 It wouldn't be a luxury swimming pool without the right finishing touch. Guncast offers a wide range of finishes to suit every style and taste – from shimmering Italian glass mosaic tiles to large format porcelain.

Once your stunning basement swimming pool is complete, all that's left is to share it with others. Get ready to be the envy of all, with your lavish new basement swimming pool from Design by Guncast.
