Have you ever really paid attention to all the different sizes and shapes of pools that are really out there? The truth is, you’re only going to be limited on pool shapes by your own imagination. That’s because you can have something made exactly how you want.
Pool Shapes to Choose From
Some of the more standard pools that you’ll find are either square or circular. These are the ones that you’ll usually find in a store or advertised in nearly any catalog. You likely won’t see the range of different shapes that you can choose from. You have to ask for those.
If you want to have a pool custom made you can get something in any shape you want. One of the more common ‘custom’ styles is a lap pool. This is going to be narrower and longer, a rectangular pool, rather than a square. Of course, this is still somewhat standard.
Designing your own pool could help you get a completely unique look and shape that’s all your own. It can also help you choose something that’s made a little differently or sized differently. This will be entirely up to you what you’re looking for. It’s also going to be up to you what you’re willing to spend, which is the next section.
The Cost of Your New Pool
Custom designing a pool is definitely going to cost more than choosing a generic one. If you can purchase it at any old store you’re probably not going to spend more than a couple hundred dollars on a pool. On the other hand if you’re choosing something larger that’s still a traditional shape you may spend a few hundred or more. If you’re looking for something that is entirely unique you’re going to have a lot more money into it.
Of course, the specific amount of money that you are going to spend is going to depend on what you want and it’s also going to depend on where you’re getting the pool from. You’ll want to talk with a professional to find out for sure what you’re going to be getting yourself into when it comes to the costs involved.
The Materials for Your Pool
What your pool is made out of is going to depend on just who you choose to make your pool. They’re going to have different materials that they think are better than others. They’re also going to have some that work better for specific shapes or types of pools (in-ground or above, for example).
You will also have some say in what the pool is made of as that’s going to affect the longevity and the cost. Make sure you know what you’re getting into right from the start. This definitely applies to all of the materials you’re going to need.
Here we have a whole bunch of cool pool shapes that you can choose from in order to get what you’re really looking for. We also have some that you may want to give a shot, even though they may not be actual designs yet. There’s a whole lot you can do with this type of pool.
