Building a pool in your yard is one of the best ways to bring together people you love for fun afternoons in the sun, especially in summertime.
From pools constructed by our Vancouver pool company, located in West Vancouver, to some of the prettiest swimming pools around the world, we compiled a list of six beautiful pools to inspire your own pool design.
Infinity pool with a covered hot tub in West Vancouver
Overlooking the rugged coastline of West Vancouver, we built this pool with both an attached spa and a detached covered hot tub. The entire pool area takes advantage of the breathtaking views.
The covered hot tub makes it easy for the homeowner to enjoy the spa year-round, even when the local climate becomes very wet in spring and fall. In the rain, the hot tub is a cozy and romantic place to relax with friends and family.
A freeform pool with waterfall, spa and basketball net
This custom pool combines some of our favourite elements into a backyard oasis that is fun, relaxing and beautifully landscaped.
The rock wall has a natural stone look, with a sheer descent waterfall feature that tumbles into the freeform swimming pool area. Along the pool’s edge, a built-in basketball net is the perfect height for pool games and stays secure.
We also love the elevated outdoor spa with a cascading waterfall, and makes use of underwater LED lighting to create a warm glow in the evening.
Big Bahamas pool with lanterns
With a mosaic tile bottom that is reminiscent of the blue Caribbean Sea, this pool located in the Bahamas is perfect for relaxing on summer days. Its size makes it easy for the whole family to use floating chairs and laze under the sun.
The pool’s edge is constructed from bright coral stone, and the lanterns in the foreground keep the pool area lit at night so it can be enjoyed late into the evening.
West Vancouver negative edge pool with a view
The views in West Vancouver should never be wasted! So when we built this pool for a family whose home had a lovely view through old-growth trees, we positioned the negative edge of the pool to take advantage of the scenery.
The pool is elevated to provide the best vantage point for looking out over the water. To the left, you can see the elevated spa next to the pool’s edge as well.
Adobe-style house with a pool and spa
This home, built in a traditional Mexican style, makes excellent use of the pool as an outdoor living area, with a gazebo for dinners under the sunset, and a large lounge area with pool chairs along the windows of the home’s living area.
We especially love the creative way the pool designer connected the pool to the outdoor spa, via a concrete channel.
The perfect poolside cabana
A cabana is a perfect way to provide shade and a place for relaxation next to the pool. This one, right at the foot of the pool, makes for excellent inspiration for your pool design. Slipping from the shade to the water is effortless.
Cabanas like these are also an excellent way to keep your eye on the kids playing in the water while the adults stay out of the sun – and out of the water if cocktails are involved.
