Top Trends in Pool Design This Season

Over the past few years, backyard pools have evolved and now many homeowners are designing and building pools like you would see at an upscale resort. As people are spending more time at home, the desire to create a backyard oasis has grown. Here are some of the biggest pool design trends you’ll see this year.

Integrated spas

Hot tubs have always been a popular choice, but many homeowners are now building spas that are integrated into the pool’s design. With an integrated spa, the pool and spa appear to be part of one large body of water, but are separated by a wall to keep the water from mixing.

Cocktail pools 

If you have limited space in your backyard, a cocktail pool could be a great choice for you. Cocktail pools are compact pools and can fit into small or irregularly shaped yards. These pools also tend to be less expensive and more eco-friendly than regular sized pools. 

Sun shelves

Tanning ledges or sun shelves or are flat, shallow areas within the pool itself and used as a lounging area. Many homeowners also decided to put lounge chairs on the sun shelf, to create the perfect place to soak up the sun while keeping cool in the water.

Dark interior colors

If you want to create a lagoon-like appearance and make your pool look deeper than it is, go with dark interiors like gray, navy, or black. They tend to absorb and hold heat more effectively, so the pool water will stay at that perfect, refreshing temperature.
