7 Unique Pool Designs That Will Make You Want To Dive In Right Now

Summer’s meant to be spent poolside. If you’re looking into adding a pool to your backyard so you can quit going to the neighborhood watering hole, you need to think about a design that will suit your needs.

You don’t have to settle for a rectangle or kidney bean-shaped pool. Oh no, you can create a pool that looks more like a pond (tree house, swing and all). All you have to do is use your imagination.

These seven different designs will open your eyes to a whole new world of pool possibilities.

3. Walk-In Pool

A walk-in pool will make you feel like you’re at the beach. Plus, we all know climbing a ladder to get out of the pool is the worst, and this eliminates the need for that entirely.
