If you have been dreaming of the perfect swimming pool to take you into the fall, you’re not alone. There are more than 10 million pools in the United States, and people are building thousands more every year.
Now is the perfect time to start. Here are some great inground swimming pool design ideas for your new pool.
Traditional Pool Designs
You may want to do a traditional swimming pool. There’s nothing wrong with that, however, there are so many unique and creative ways that you can update the traditional look.
Want a rectangular pool design? You may want to surround the pool with lots of plants and foliage on one side. Natural pool styles are very popular right now. Some pool designers choose to do a garden surrounding the entire pool. This makes the pool look like an intimate garden oasis. You might also try different types of stones around the pool to complete your garden look. An example of the stones you could use is garden paving stones.
Greek-Style Swimming Pool
The Greeks know what they are doing when it comes to swimming and luxurious pools. Greek-style swimming pools combine the blue of the water with the blinding white of the exterior design. Some Greek-style pools incorporate other aspects of Greek design, such as Greek keys, or a gazebo with Greek columns. We’ve even seen different shades of blue used in the tile design to represent the colors of the Aegean Sea. The effect is magnificent.
Luxury Traditional Pools
If you want to stay with a traditional design, you have several options. You may want to think about luxury pools with waterfalls. Pool designers have done some amazing waterfall designs. For example, contractors have designed waterfalls using local, natural stone. Other pool designs feature a tanning shelf with a waterfall that drops into the pool.
Another great design feature for a traditional pool is a fire pit. Some designers place fire pits at one end of the pool for a magical effect. The fire pit usually includes a seating area in the pool itself. Designers have also placed the fire pit close to the pool by a tanning shelf. Fire pits are a great way to make a traditional pool a little less traditional.
Modern Pool Designs
Modern pool designs can be anything you want. Free-form pools are all the fashion now. Contractors can build any size or shape pool you want, which is great if you have an irregular backyard. We have also seen a lot of circle and square pool designs, which makes them an interesting feature. You can also add a feature in the middle of the pool, such as a table or a bar. We’ve also seen bars at one end of the pool, which makes it easy to swim up for refreshments. One of the latest pool designs to incorporate art along the sides. For example, some people use metal modern art sculptures to add interest just outside the pool. You might also want to incorporate art into a modern swimming pool design. New pool designs have featured modern-art themed designs.
