A swimming pool can be a great addition to your house. When deciding what pool to install, one of the hardest parts is deciding on a shape for your swimming pool. Many do not realize all the various shapes when it comes to swimming pools. Here we will cover some of the best pool shapes for you to choose from.
Best Pool Shapes - Improving Your Home's Value
While many think of traditional shapes such as kidney and rectangle, there are also more custom shapes such as L shaped and oval pools. Below we will break down many pool shapes to help you decide on the best choice for you.
#1: Oval Pools
Just like the name suggests, the pool has to be in the big oval shape. Though the shape is quite common for the swimming pool, it is perfect for the ones who have a huge backyard. Old Victorian houses used have pools with this shape. Along with that you can also see rock formations, palm trees and waterfalls to accentuate its beauty.
#2: Kidney Pools
Just like the shape of the kidney the pool shape is mostly rounded from the sides and you will notice a curved inward at an edge. It is like a paint holder. The irregular shape of this pool gives a feel of a lake. This shape is perfect for the ones who want an artificial waterfall at their backyard.
#3: Figure 8 Pools
The pools that are built in the shape of the figure 8 are called 8-shaped pools. The pools are round at both the ends and it narrows down from the middle. This shape of the pool actually gives a beautiful picture of the irregular natural water reserve.
#4: Rectangular Shape
While this is one of the most common and the least creative pool shape, this is widely used all over the world. This looks actually like a long strip of water. Often due to lack of space, most of the skyscrapers and apartment buildings use rectangular pools. Also you will notice this shape in the penthouses.
#5: L-shaped Pool
Just like the name suggests, this pool is formed in the shape of a capital L. Generally, the vertical stem of L is kept lesser in width as well as smaller in size. On the other hand, the other part of the pool is larger with more width.
Bottom Line
So, these are some of the best pool shapes that you can use for your pool building project. If you don’t want a specific shape, you can look into geometric and freeform pools. If you are limited on space, then it is better to opt for the shapes like rectangular and L-shaped.

Pretty photograph. I had a big rectangle pool in my last home which was good for lap swimming and catching leaves every day.
