With the vast choices of fabulous designs and so many innovative features, it can be difficult to opt just for one that will suit your taste.

Vanishing Edges

The reason why these pools are usually found in expensive resorts is that they look like a fabulous waterfall, since one side of the pool is shortened and the water spills into a catch basin underneath. These swimming pools are perfect option for backyards with a gorgeous view. However, the installation is very expensive, so be prepared to break the bank if you decide to have this type of pool in your home.

Beach-like Feel

You can get into the pool by gradually going down, without having to use the stairs or ladders. It’s especially recommended for families with small children, or people with disabilities because it’ll allow them to enter and exit the pool safely and easily. If you’re ready to spend some extra money, upgrade the entire design with sand and create the ultimate beach effect.

A tanning ledge can be a great addition to your swimming pool. This is a shallow section of the pool perfect for children to play, or for you to sunbathe. What’s more, be creative and add some decorative lighting or fancy tiling to make the pool look luxurious.

Small Pools

Thanks to its compact design, a plunge pool can provide you with a refreshing dip, and allow you to play with your friends or little kids. Additionally, when you want to make the most of the small layout consider installing a pool that’s larger than a spa and yet smaller than a pool ‒ a spool. It’ll keep you warm at colder months, and perfectly refreshed in the hot summer as well.

Eco-friendly Pools

Thanks to the plants and sand filters, the water stays clean and bacteria free. Whether you choose the pond-like design or opt for a more standard pool, you’ll be able to enjoy the dip in a perfect eco-friendly pool. Furthermore, natural pools are the perfect solution for those who’d like to install the pool on a budget, since they’ll cost less than the traditional pool.

Installing a swimming pool in your home gives you so many advantages. You could enjoy the sun from the privacy of your home, swim whenever you feel like it, and always be able to keep an eye on your kids. Therefore, look through the current swimming pool design trends, opt for the one that best suits your backyard and provide your family with a perfect oasis everyone can enjoy.
