There are a few common shapes when it comes to vinyl liner in ground swimming pools that get built over and over again. I think the most basic of these shapes is the rectangle. This is a shape that many people end up with in their back yards, but why? Originally, I think that it was more of a matter of availability. When vinyl liner in ground swimming pools first came out on the market, there weren’t that many shapes available. Luckily that is all in the past, yet still to this day the rectangle is a common shape among vinyl liner in ground swimming pools.
Some of you may not know this, but with all the technological advances that have been made over the years vinyl liner in ground swimming pool manufacturers are now able to offer any size, any shape pool that you can think of. That is the point of this post. I want to make you aware that when it comes to vinyl liner in ground swimming pools, you don’t have to go with a basic rectangle shape. Many amazing pools have been done with vinyl liners. In addition to that there are many different liner designs that are available to give your pool something that others around you don’t have. Another thing that can set your pool apart from anyone else’s is the way your deck is done. Let’s take a look at some of the vinyl liner pools that have been done in the past to give you an idea of what can be done with a vinyl liner in ground pool.
In this picture (left) you can see how they have opted to use pavers as their decking rather than traditional concrete. In addition to that, this is more of an organic shape rather than the basic rectangle. It is not likely that any of their neighbors will have a pool like this.
This next one is similar in that they again used the pavers for the decking, however the shape is drastically different. In addition to that they used unique landscaping to set this pool area apart.
This pool has a somewhat standard concrete deck, however they chose to have a border around their pool in a darker color. This is yet another way to set your pool apart from the rest. When it comes to concrete, to get away from the traditional white brushed look, many people go with stamped concrete and add a 1′ border around their pool in a different but complimentary color.
The last pool here is a completely unique design. The shape alone would be enough to set it apart from the neighbors pools, however they went a step further by adding some planter areas in the decking and by building a pool house nearby. This is the type of setting that is used all over the country for back yard cook outs, and evening drinks by the pool.
These are all examples of how a vinyl liner in ground swimming pool can be made into any shape or size that you can imagine. I have even seen a vinyl liner pool shaped like an electric guitar. The way I see it, if you can dream it, it can be done. There are endless possibilities that can be done with a vinyl liner pool. It only depends on how creative you are when you design it.
