Get Inspired by Unique Pools This Summer When Planning Your Custom Home

Swimming pools don't have to be squares or rectangles. The most interesting ones not only offer a place to relax, but also serve as exciting decor elements that enhance the look of your entire yard. Keep these pool design ideas in mind as you plan your new dream home layout.

  • A lounge area, immersed in the pool, can be an excellent place to relax. Outfit it with "stepping stones" or ledges to sit for easy access.

  • Do you love music? One home owner designed a pool in the shape of a guitar, complete with strings painted on the bottom of the pool. When lit up at night, it presents a fantastic sight.  Don't feel confined to the conventional pool shapes; you can have yours make a unique statement.

  • Bring the natural beauty of waterfalls into your own pool.  Create a cascade of water, which thunders into a lower portion of your pool.

  • A pool that is surrounded with natural rocks will make you feel like you're taking a dip in a secluded pond rather than in a suburban backyard.
