Freeform pools can create a unique space in your backyard. Different from the classic round or rectangular look that most homeowners opt for, freeform pools can conform to the area you have while adding a little spice to your summer oasis. If you’re considering a freeform pool, first, congrats! Second, there are some important things to consider before making a final decision.
The Options are Endless
When it comes to freeform pools, the options are truly endless. While a kidney shape is on the more traditional end when it comes to freeform designs, there are a wide array of looks to choose from. Freeform swimming pools are designed in a naturalistic or irregular style and shape. They often featuring flowing lines, curves and swooping edges. These types of installation also lend themselves well to rock and/or waterfall features and, with a little imagination, can be built to resemble a natural pond or lake.
Swimming vs. Aesthetics
When it comes to freeform pools, it is not difficult to get the best of both worlds – plenty of room to swim, along with a beautiful design and style. However, it’s important to consider what is most important to your family when selecting the shape. If swimming is on top of the list, wider, rounder-type shapes with flowing lines are an excellent choice. If aesthetics is the name of the game, you might want to consider longer designs with curves, tanning ledges, built-in seating and more. Also, shop around when it comes to a professional. You want a company you can trust with knowledgeable staff who can assess the area you have to build in and your specific needs.
