What Kind of Custom Pool Style Works Best For You?

Let’s talk about your dream pool for a moment. When you see it in your mind, what does it look like? Does it have a traditional look or is it more sleek and modern? Your custom pool can be as unique as you want it to be. No matter what size or style of pool you’re thinking about, we can help you design the backyard oasis you’ve been dreaming of. That’s where Robert Allen Pools and Spas comes in. We’re the experts at helping you decide the design decisions that will fit best with your vision.

Rectangle pool

This classic pool shape has been around for decades. With its perfect 90-degree angles, it lends itself to a modern style or contemporary design style while it retains that classic look. This style of pool is great for swimming laps or other kinds of water exercise. It’s also a good option if you have a long or narrow area you want to fill. It’s easy to customize a rectangular pool with gardens, a built-in spa, or a pool cover because of the classic shape. A full rectangle does require a lot of room for a large pool, but there are potential compromises like rounding off some of the edges if there isn’t that much space available.

L-shaped pool

This design is a great way to expand on the rectangular pool design. The L-shape allows you the flexibility to have the bigger open space rectangular pools are known for with the added bonus of a spa or shallow play area off to the side. It’s a great choice if you need a deeper area for diving but still want a shallow section as well. This is a great place to add stairs or incorporate zero entry into your pool design. Imagine part of the L being sheltered under a gazebo. There are a lot of possibilities.

Geometric shaped pool

If you want fewer straight lines, a geometric shaped pool is a great option. You can choose a traditional oval or kidney-shaped pool or opt for something more unique like a heart shape or a combination of shapes. You can easily add a tanning ledge, waterfall, or bench to this type of pool design. It’s easy to customize to create the exact style you’re looking for. Plus, a flexible shape can mean maximizing your swimming area if you don’t have abundant space to work with.
