A house like this one, with a beautiful pool, is a dream of many homeowners everywhere. It's a symbol of the good the life; a vacation in your home. Making it a safe environment for your family naturally takes priority.
Pool fences are the best way to go if you want to have control of the area. Fences don't need to be an interruption. Glass fencing is an increasingly popular alternative to wood and metal. They keep everyone safe and still allow you to enjoy the beauty of your pool.
It's imperative to treat all surfaces surrounding the pool area with an anti-slip coating. Coating will last a long time and will improve safety in the area.
Make sure you can see the pool from your house, either from surveillance cameras, a window or a presence detector. Most child accidents happen when parents can't see what's going on in and around their pool.
Make getting to the pool a little harder. This is another example of a glass fence that interferes with kids going straight to the pool.
The concept of having your kitchen right next to the pool sounds very appealing, but indoor rooms in proximity to a pool can be dangerous. Separate these areas with railings to keep safety first and your view second.
Leave enough space for walking around the pool. Too many furniture pieces can turn into obstacles and hurt people in case of slipping.
Concrete or wood are not the only materials used in pool design. Another way of preventing your family from slipping around the pool is by keeping grass around it.
