Pool Design Ideas to Inspire Your Next Pool Remodel

Thanks to the cutting edge technology and state of the art equipment available to professionals in the pool industry today, pool owners from all over the country can be enjoying cool pools of custom shapes and designs that cater to their tastes and lifestyles. From sleek luxury pools to backyard pond pools, here are some pool design ideas to inspire your next pool renovation.


In-Ground Cool Pools

Owners of in-ground pools have almost limitless options when it comes to pool renovations and remodels.  Some of the hottest trends this year:

Revamped Entryways: Beach entries are still one of the most popular features of cool pools, though the tanning or “baja” ledge is completing for top spot
In-Pool Seating: A growing number of homeowners are wanting waterscapes that resemble luxury pools, which often means in-pool seating. Consider wrap around bench seating for freeform pools, or add in-pool bar stools or “floating pavers” to add functional yet visually engaging seating areas for friends and family
Knife-Edge Pools: Also referred to as a “perimeter overflow pool”, many of the luxury pools of today feature a “knife edge”.  This type of pool allows water to flow over all sides of the pool, giving it a smooth and glassy appearance


Above Ground Cool Pools

The above ground pools of today are far more attractive than those of the past. If you’re looking to dress up your above ground pool with a pool renovation, here are some ideas to get you started:

Creative Decking: A wooden deck is a staple for above ground pools, but for those looking to change things up, consider using stacked stone or molded and stamped concrete to give you above ground pool the appearance of being a private mountainside sanctuary
Unique Entries: Ditch the standard white steps and come up with your own unique entry designs. Long wooden stairs that wrap around the pool serve not only as steps to the pool but also a lounging and seating area
Attached Spas: Existing above ground cool pools can still have an “attached spa” through clever deck design and planning
