Types of Pool Designs

One of the hardest decisions when it comes to buying a pool is deciding which shape you want. Luckily there are hundreds of ways a pool can be shaped. If you want a pool that looks great with its surroundings, it is important to know what shape to choose when it comes to proximity to home and landscape. A pool placed close to a house should complement the architecture of the home. A pool can also complement the surrounding landscape by taking advantage of natural contours and design. Here is an idea of the popular and traditional shapes:

Geometric Pools

Traditional pools tend to be of a geometric shape, either some rendition or a rectangle, square, circle or oval. Geometric pools are also known as contemporary, classic, roman, Grecian-styled swimming pools. Geometric pools have an elegant simplicity that is timeless and stunning. Considered to be a traditional pool design, rectangle pools are among one of the most popular designs. This is because of the formal lines that fit a homes or buildings silhouette. Rectangle pools are also ideal for swimming laps.

Free Form Pools

A freeform can take any natural or curvy form. A true free form pool does not adhere to recognizable shapes (such as circles, squares, or geometric patterns). Free form pools are perfect for those who are looking for a nature-inspired pool. They are perfect for incorporating shrubs, palm trees, and garden landscaping. Contemporary freeform pools will often have added features, such as waterfalls, rockwork, and plants to portray a natural pond, lake or oasis feel to the pool.
