There are a whole variety of swimming pool designs, ranging from classic to creative.

How do you know which design is right for you?

To begin, think about why you want to put a pool in, where you want to put it in your backyard, and what message you want to convey with it.

Once you have these basics in place, we suggest looking at a number of swimming pool designs and types to see what sparks your interest.

An infinity pool is one of the classiest swimming pool designs. It brings style to any backyard. On top of that, it is a perfect way to make the most of your view, while creating the feel of being on a year-round vacation.

3. Lap pool

A lap pool is focused on using limit space to allow for maximum workout potential. Given that, it is long but narrow. This lets you get some momentum as you swim without taking up too much space.

4. Natural pool

A natural pool makes the most of Vancouver’s beauty. Not happy with your yard? You can cultivate a natural look with gorgeous backyard design. Best of all, if you are creating your natural pool look, you can feature rocks, plants, or any other natural material you love.

5. Plunge pool

A plunge pool is small – again, not taking up too much space. It can offer a range of health benefits though. Make the most of your plunge pool by changing the temperature throughout the year, using it as a cold-water pool or hot tub depending on your wants and needs.

6. Traditional in-ground pool

This is the simplest, most classic swimming pool design. That makes an in-ground pool a blank canvas. Once you have an in-ground pool in place, you can build its style through other backyard features.

7. Modern pool

A modern pool brings its own style to the table. That means you do not have to add many other features as your pool is already the centre point of your backyard. Given this, we suggest focusing on neutral features that compliment the appearance of your modern pool.

8. Mediterranean pool

With the weather in Vancouver being so unpredictable, an indoor pool can be the perfect way to enjoy your swimming pool any time. Think about installing your pool in a room with large windows to still enjoy your view.
