Lafayette Pool Design Ideas

When building a swimming pool there are a lot of decisions to be made. Homeowners have to think about what type of swimming pool design they want, how it’s going to be used (while also considering space constraints) and the overall backyard ambiance they’re trying to create. All while keeping the price within their pool budget. To help you create your ideal poolscape, read up on some of the coolest and most popular pool designs and shapes below:

The “Knife Edge” or Perimeter Overflow Pool

Commonly associated with luxurious resorts, homeowners can now enjoy the opulent and smooth glassy waters of their very own perimeter overflow pool. Mirror-like in appearance, the water of these swimming pools flows over all sides of the pool and are caught in a channel below, which then recirculates the water back into the pool. These are typically found in geometric pool shapes (such as rectangular or lap pools), though creative pool designers and builders can incorporate them into more freeform pool design.

The Spool Pool Design

One of the most popular new pool design trends this season is the “spool”. Being both a spa/hot tub and a swimming pool, the spool is ideal for smaller spaces as it allows pool lovers to enjoy both the benefits of a hot tub and a pool. Many can be equipped with specialized features that can allow avid swimmers to enjoy the benefits of a lap pool in this small space.

The Freeform Pool Design

Always a favorite, the freeform pool design resembles a lagoon or pond and often comes with numerous rock features such as grottos, caves, and more. Typically striving to mimic a tropical oasis, freeform pool shapes are perfect for those who want to create a relaxing, laid back spot in their backyard.
