Inground Pool Ideas To Inspire Your Next Remodel

Las Vegas summers reach an average high temperature between 99 and 104 degrees F. One of the best ways to beat the heat while enjoying the outdoors is with a backyard swimming pool. If you already have a pool that’s been around for a while, it may be time to give it a makeover.

Here are the top pool ideas to inspire your next pool remodeling project.

Long and Narrow

The shape and size of your backyard may not lend itself well to traditional backyard pools.

Perhaps you can consider a long and narrow swimming pool design. This creative pool technique allows you to swim laps or relax in the water. Best of all, you don’t have to sacrifice your entire yard to have a pool.

Sandy Beach 

Recreate the joy of a beach without leaving home! You can opt for a shallow splash pad on one side of your pool that is the color and texture of sand.

Using natural stone will give your pool a beach shore vibe. This shallow area is the perfect spot to set up a reclining chair with a good book.

This design works for pools of any size. Also, the shallow entry is great for small kids who can splash and play at depths they enjoy.

In-Pool Seating

One of the most luxurious pool ideas is to incorporate patio seating into the pool. You can wrap your pool around the seating area.

This is perfect for those who don’t want the pool to be the focal point of the yard. It’s certainly a conversation starter!

You and your guests will feel like you are on a tropical vacation as you sit and chat in the pool without being wet.

Family Fun Swimming Pool Design

If you have a house full of kids, what could be better than a pool remodel that takes their wants into consideration?

You can recreate their waterpark enjoyment right in your very own backyard. Add in slides, diving rocks, waterfalls, islands, and pair it with colorful landscaping.

Kids and kids-at-heart will never want to get out of the pool!

Multi-Level Pool

When it comes to pool redesigns, there is no limit to your creativity in design. One of the most interesting pool layouts is to create a multi-level pond.

Strategically placed waterfalls will move the water from higher levels to lower ones. Then pumps built into the pool will pull water back to the top.

One of the perks to this type of pool design is that water is always flowing and being filtered more frequently.

Also, it makes for an interesting and beautiful design. If you have kids, you can make a special pond for their use that is the perfect shallow depth.

Why not also make a special Mom and Dad pond that will allow for romantic conversations away from kiddie splashing?

Lazy River

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a waterpark without a lazy river. These looping pools are a favorite spot at most watermarks. 

You can choose to create one in your backyard during your pool remodeling project. Best of all, a lazy river can wrap around an enclosed area even if it has an irregular shape.

Whether you like to swim laps without getting bored or you want to relax and play in the pool, this design accommodates both.

A lazy river pool can be installed in very small yards without sacrificing the entire yard to the pool area. 

You can choose the depth and width according to your preference and backyard layout. 

Organic Pool Views

Some people don’t love the concrete, hard lines of traditional pools. 

That’s OK, you don’t have to have that. 

You can maintain the visual flow of the natural environment by opting for an organic pool view. Choose minimal pavement and opt for stone and rock as the visual elements.

You can even stack stone slabs to make a natural-looking waterfall. Feel free to line the pool by hedges and plants to make the space feel secluded and surrounded by nature.

Infinity Pool

One of the most luxurious pool ideas is to create an infinity pool in your yard. You will feel like you are at an upscale hotel or resort each time you step out the back door.

If you don’t know what it is, an infinity pool is one where the water flows over one (or more) edges. The stunning visual effect is one that looks like the pool has no boundary.

You can design your pool to merge with the view of the sky or ocean. Talk about luxury!

Freeform Pool

If you want to maintain a pool in your yard but don’t want it to take over space, a small freeform pool is your best bet.

You can build a custom pool that can take any shape to suit your yard. Best of all, you can keep the maximum amount of garden space while still having a place to cool off.

Freeform pools look like ponds which add to their visual appeal in a garden full of plants and flowers. In fact, this type of pool is demure and unassuming so that your lush foliage can take centerstage.
