How to Choose the Right Pool Shape

Pool Shape

Swimming pools have been around for hundreds, even thousands of years. It would seem that people have always had an affinity for lounging in or near the water. Perhaps it is our innate desire to be close to a water source, or maybe it has everything to do with the need to unwind. Regardless of what the real motivation is, people love to swim.

If you have considered having a swimming pool installed in your backyard living environment, there are many different questions that you have. One of the most common questions that people have is in regards to the actual shape of the pool. Many people are unsure about the many possibilities that await them when it comes to construction and design of their new swimming pool. The reality is that swimming pools are as diverse as the people that love them.

Pool Shape

The most common shape for swimming pools is the basic rectangle. This is an old design that harkens back to the Greco-Roman era. This classic design has been installed in thousands of areas around the globe, but it is not the only option that you have. Did you know that you could have a circular pool, or even a diamond shaped pool? Many customers have opted for a “kidney” shaped pool that has no sharp corners. Perhaps you are not interested in having a basic design. If this is you, we are proud to offer custom designed pools as well.

So how do you choose the right design? Much of this discussion is going to be based on the preference of the homeowner. However there are other issues that must be looked at as well. For example, you might have a small or oddly shaped yard. In this case, the custom design might be best for you. Maybe you would like to have your pool encompass your entire backyard. Whatever you like, we have a design just for you.
