Written by Posted On Friday, 27 December 2019 20:55

Are you thinking about putting in a pool? There are plenty of reasons why this is a great idea. First, if most of your neighbors have pools, but you don't, it could be more difficult to sell your home when the time comes. In this case, adding a pool can be a great investment

Even if you want to keep your house for a long time, you'll be able to experience years of fun when you invest in a pool. Having a pool in your backyard allows you to bring paradise to your home instead of having to venture out to find a great place to swim. Best of all, there are so many beautiful inground pool designs that it's easy to turn your backyard into a relaxing oasis. 

 Continue reading this article to learn more about different pool designs that may be perfect for your backyard.

1. Multi-Level Pools

You may have only seen multi-level pools when you stay at luxury hotels, but now you can have one for your backyard.

The design will feature an inground pool as well as one or more smaller above ground pools. This design usually does well with a large patio for entertaining friends and family.

2. Minimalistic Design 

A minimalistic pool design is a good idea when you aren't very creative and you want to keep things simple.

You can make your pool a square or rectangle with a concrete pool deck for a few chairs. The only thing you might want to add to this minimalistic design are a few umbrellas or trees for shade.

3. Poolside Drink Setup

Do you love going to resorts and having drinks at the swim-up bar? Why not create your own?

When you create your poolside bar, it doesn't have to be very big. Putting 4 in-water stools should suffice. If you don't have a lot of room in your backyard, you don't have to have a large pool area -- just enough to cool down and relax while enjoying a drink.

4. Fancy Tiles

If you don't want your pool to look traditional, switch up the swimming pool tiles. Find tiles that reflect your personality and pair them with any pool shape and set up to show off how unique your tastes are.

5. Hello, Nature

Have you dreamed about swimming in a remote location amongst vegetation far away from civilization?

You can create this feeling by putting a minimalistic pool design amongst a jungle of beautiful trees, plants, and flowers. If you decide to take this route, make sure you choose plants and trees that aren't going to make a big mess.

You don't want to spend all of your time cleaning out your pool, no matter how beautiful the landscaping looks.

6. Hot Tub Gazebo Spa

Does the idea of a pool not excite you? How about a hot tub to relax those aching muscles?

Put a pool size hot tub in your backyard with a gazebo, and you'll have your own spa space. While you won't be able to stay in the hot tub as long as you would be able to stay in a normal swimming pool, the gazebo will also give you a nice spot to relax.

7. Pool with Artificial Sand Banks

Do you wish that you could feel like you were at the beach every day? If you live in a landlocked location, the beach might not be an option for you, but you can create your own beach experience.

Consider designing an inground swimming pool with two different levels of sandbars. One sandbar can barely be in the water, and the next level a little deeper. When you're ready to take a dip in the water, you can jump in and have a good swim.

On the top level of your sandbar, you can put lounge chairs and an umbrella to enjoy some relaxation.

8. Waterfalls, Fountains & Slides

Even a small pool can look extra fancy when you add waterfalls, fountains, and slides. Depending on if you're going to be more active or you prefer relaxing, you can choose bigger slides, or you might opt to add another waterfall.

9. Lap Pools

If you want to get some exercise in, but you don't have a lot of space, a lap pool can be perfect for your backyard.

You can practice your swimming any time you want without having to leave your home.

Choosing the Right Design for You and Your Family

Now that you have some ideas for designs for your backyard, you have to figure out which design is going to work best for your family. 

If you have young kids, you might get a pool that offers plenty of space for playing without a bunch of fancy designs. On the other hand, if you only want to hang out by the pool and sip margaritas, then you might choose a fancier pool design with more seating. 

Look at how you're going to use the space and mesh some of the design ideas to create your perfect pool.
