Best Swimming Pool Design Choices for 2017

Trending creative designs for swimming pools

Swimming pools have changed a lot since we began to build them in our backyards. Before that, they had simple designs that focused more on practicality than looks and style. Now swimming pools are some kind of social status and people go out of their way to build the most luxurious and out of this world pools right in their backyard.

Traditional square pool

Now, this is nothing bad, pools have become our own patch of paradise, our own little resort. With so many different styles and designs, it is hard to predict what will be the most popular one in an upcoming year, but we think we have figured it out. In this article, we will go over the most artsy and creative designs for swimming pools that will certainly be trending in 2017.

Smaller square pool

Edge pools

It is not shocking seeing edge pools first on our list. These types of pools have been popular in the last couple of years and it looks like they will also be in 2017. Their characteristic infinite edge gives them a modern and luxurious look. This is created by shortening one side of the pool and letting the water drip over it into the basin below. There is no particular use for this feature, but it makes for a great sight to behold, especially if you have a beautiful backyard view.

Small backyard pool

If done correctly, these pools can become a true masterpiece. If you love luxury and want to bring that resort feel to your backyard, then the infinity or edge pool is the way to go. Decide on the dimensions and don’t forget to add some decorations around the pool and you will be having a vacation atmosphere all year long.

Stone design pool

Plunge pools

The next design is a plunge pool. These pools are a bit smaller than the edge pools, but they offer the same level of comfort and relaxation. The majority of people use this design because of its practicality and easy maintenance. Plunge pools are not meant for swimming, but they are ideal if you want to escape the warm weather and dip yourself in cold refreshing water.

Small wooden deck pool

As we said, they are really easy to maintain and can fit in almost any backyard. Because of their smaller surface, these pools don’t have problems with water evaporation - just put on the cover and that will be enough. Also, if you are concerned about water outage and want to be more energy-efficient, a plunge pool is the way to go. The smaller body of water and almost no water evaporation means that you won’t be wasting water not even close to other pool designs.

Small bricked pool

Natural pools

Lastly, there has been a rise in popularity of natural pools. When we talk about natural pools we don’t think about natural-looking pools with rocks and waterfalls around them, but about 100% naturally formed swimming pool without any chemicals, pumps, filters, etc.

Large traditional indoor pool

These pools have their own thriving plant life that keeps the water clean, so there is no need for chlorine and other chemicals. Natural pools, take all shapes and sizes. You can go the traditional way and make it square as if it was an ordinary pool or you can blend it with the environment and make it look like a bond or a lake. On top of that, this is probably the cheapest option out of these three. It requires little to no maintenance and because you won’t be needing filter and pumps, building it will probably cost you less.

Wooden deck pool

Having a swimming pool in this day and age has become a relatively normal sight. As you can see from these designs there is something for everyone. No matter if you love luxury or want to go full natural, we guarantee you that our suggestions will be the top choices for 2017.
