Now that the new year is in full swing and you’re looking forward to your spring pool build, you might have started wondering what features and designs you want to incorporate. There are tons of options out there, so make sure you have an idea of what you like before meeting with a pool company. Here are some of the popular swimming pool design trends that we forecast for 2017! Vanishing Edges Also known as infinity pools, vanishing edges make it seem like the pool goes off into the sunset (literally). These pools are typically found in pricey hotels and resorts, but as they gain popularity they are becoming more and more popular. If your backyard has an incredible view and the area you want to place your pool is on a hill, a vanishing edge pool might be the perfect choice. A Day at the Beach Another swimming pool design trend gaining popularity this year is bringing the beach to your backyard. Pools are designed with a beach entry and sloped floor so that you can gently wander into the water instead of diving right in. You can also experiment with different interior pool finishes to further the beachy feel, using pebbles and natural materials. Small Pools Bigger isn’t always better, and small pools are gaining popularity rapidly. If you have a small backyard or just want a tiny area to take a dip and enjoy a little water, small pools can be adapted into a large variety of small yards. Plunge pools can be great for splashing around and playing with the kids. Small pools might not be very good for swimming, but they will provide you with the refreshment that you need in the hot months.
