Whilst outdoor pools are hugely desirable, there are a number of restrictions that may limit or impede the construction of a swimming pool – especially if you live in a city. Basement conversions are becoming increasingly popular for those looking to increase their living space and add value to their properties with the added luxury of a pool and leisure area. Maximising the use of this space allows us to incorporate swimming pools, spas, saunas, steam rooms and gyms, as well as many other inspiring concepts. Aqua Platinum are specialists in basement leisure facilities and aim to create exceedingly high quality projects in the footprint of any building.
We know that the design stage is a very powerful juncture in the process of creating a basement pool project. Not only does it need to work well as a highly functional living space, it needs to be faultless in quality and flawless in its finishing. Undisturbed by the outside world, basements provide the perfect setting for indoor swimming pools as they have concrete floors and no weight limitations on below floors or ceilings. They are also less expensive to operate and maintain due to the reduction of heat loss from outdoor environments, especially in winter months and unpredictable British weather.
Each client has respective needs and preferences in design and construction, which is why we pride ourselves in maintaining excellent communication with our clients before moving forward with the construction to ensure all factors of visual and practical aspects have been appraised. Our project managers attend regular site meetings, and maintain close communication with engineers, architects and contractors to coordinate all aspects of design and construction.
We will work with you, listen and advise you every step of the way to ensure the final product is one that exceeds your expectations.
Basement pools are the perfect project to implement advanced moving floor technology, meaning the floor can be lowered to different depths for swimmers including the option to be raised to pool deck. A moving floor can allow the swimming pool area to be converted into usable floor space when you want to reclaim it for non-swimming related activities. This bespoke feature allows for the room to become an adaptable and multi-functional space, also serving as a unique selling point for the property.
You can also opt for water features such as waterfalls, fountains and bubble jets, or even resistant jets that provide an endless current. A well-lit pool with interesting lighting designs adds to the stylish nature of basement pools, especially with the absence of windows/natural light in the room. Uplighting on the walls in addition to adjustable mood lighting both in and outside the water is a perfect way to create an ambient atmosphere.
Creating your dream indoor basement pool starts with getting every last detail perfect. The additional features you can install in a subterranean living space are endless, although the most popular choices include spas, steam rooms, saunas, gymnasiums, and relaxation zones. Aqua Platinum specialise in creating premier wellness facilities in basement areas to ensure incredible functionality and ultimate relaxation.
