A Guide to Choosing Your Pool Shape

As temperatures rise up during the summer then it’s time to beat the heat with a pool! If you were in the market of building a pool in your home then now is a perfect time. Pools can add value to your Atlanta home and attract potential buyers in this active housing market. With all things in mind, we'll be giving you a guide to choosing your pool shape.

The Best Pool Shape In Your Budget

First, when going over the various pool shapes then keep your budget in mind. Different pool shapes vary in pricing and style. The more unique the pool shape the likelihood of the cost goes up as well. However, don’t let that deter you from building the pool of your dreams. Here’s the guide to choosing your pool shape.

1. Infinity Pools

Infinity pools are just as elegant as they sound. It’s a combination of science and construction in one. It works best by setting up the pool next to the edge overlooking an ocean, river or mountain. The water then overflows into the pool’s weir wall and gets recycled into the pool through a hidden feeder. By doing all of this it creates a magical effect that blends the pool with the body of water next to it. Thus, creating an illusion of the pool’s water going on forever next to the body of water or mountain.

2. Kidney Pools

If you’ve been to someone’s home that has a pool then chances are they likely have a kidney-shaped pool. This type of pool is the most common type and is the most desired look. The vintage style makes it a timeless look that can stand the test of time. It also makes perfect for anyone wanting to sell their home in the future. On the other hand, there are other great designs to choose from in our guide to choosing your pool shape. It's also best to get help from a luxurious pool design company for help.

3. Rectangle Pools

Rectangle pools are the perfect design for homes with huge backyards. The length of the pool makes for huge pool parties and adding diving boards for fun in the sun. With its sizing, you can also make it deeper as you get to the farther side of the pool. The only issue with this pool is that it does take up a lot of space. So keep that in mind if you’re wanting to add this design. Having a shorter rectangle pool is not the best move because it offsets its true design, which is meant to be longer and not shorter.

4. Custom Pools

Custom-shaped pools are truly one of a kind since you’re in charge of their design. These types of pools can be very elegant if correctly built. However, custom pools can also be very costly depending on the design and materials used.

5. Grecian & Roman Pools

Grecian & Roman pools start out as rectangle pools but take an artistic approach when putting the finishing touches. Grecian pools have their corners cut forming an octagon. Roman pools have rounded ends and stylized corners. Both styles take inspiration from ancient Greek and Roman architecture. These types of pools are meant for homes wanting to add a luxurious touch to their backyard. It’s best to finish these pools with marble coping to give it a different era look.

6. Geometric Pools

Geometric pools can be breathtaking whenever given the opportunity. These types of pools combine math and artistic shape to get their design. They literally look like the shapes you used to find the area of in your high school geometry homework. However, these pools aren’t as difficult to deal with as your old geometry schoolwork. Mixing the pool along with a hot tub creates the perfect combo in your backyard.
