Swimming pools have changed dramatically over the past the last 20 to30 years. Swimming pool designers have really been creative which has changed the look and feel of a swimming pool. Following are some of the designs that are currently popular.
This trend had been popular for several years—to make the backyard look like a dark lagoon surrounded by landscaping. This is done not only by designing a freeform shape that flows, but also by using a dark interior finish, flagstone coping surrounding the pool, and installing waterfalls or boulders on the pool. Natural pools have are becoming more and more popular as people want their pool to look natural.
The vanishing edge pool is common in areas that have more elevation changes, such as hillside construction, than the Denton area, but it is still a design that has been used several times in the Denton area. The vanishing-edge pool is a pool design that is most often used to enhance a lake, ocean, or valley that is just beyond the pool. The back wall of the pool is lowered allowing the water to appear to fall into the background, making the pool and the background become one. In the ideal backyard, this is a beautiful design.
Beach Entry Pool
Beach entry pools are pools that have a gradual walk-in entry into the pool, much like a beach into the ocean. It is great for small children and can be used as a shallow water tanning area and can also give a pool that tropical beach look.
