5 Popular Pool Styles to Consider, Kihei, Hawaii

Swimming pools are a major investment, but they’ll last several decades with proper care and maintenance. As such, it’s important to choose a style that suits both your current and future needs. For example—some styles are beautiful, but may not be practical if you decide to have kids in five or 10 years. The list below will give you a good idea of your options so you can choose the swimming pool that’s right for you.

5 Popular Swimming Pool Styles

1. Infinity

Infinity swimming pools have a modern look that feature a “vanishing” edge. It’s a custom-built option that creates the illusion that the water flows straight over the edge like a waterfall, though you can’t hear it. It’s a popular choice, but is one of the most expensive routes for a residential swimming pool.

2. Natural

Natural pools are a great option for those who want to avoid the use of chlorine or who simply prefer the aesthetic they offer. They use a combination of swimming areas and gardens of aquatic plants that regenerate and circulate the water to filter out bacteria and other “gunk”. This self-cleaning feature keeps the water clean and clear and requires less pool maintenance so you have more time to swim.

3. Recreational

swimming poolThis is the most common type of swimming pool installed, particularly for families. You can choose a simple rectangular shape with a small slide, or get more elaborate by making it feel more like a water park. Either way, you and your kids will get years of entertainment from it.

4. Lap

If you’re an athlete or just care about your health and fitness, a lap pool is an option to consider. They’re ideal if you have a narrow space, since they typically are just wide enough for one person to swim comfortably and they extend 50 feet or more in length.  

5. Above-Ground

Above-ground pools are the most affordable option, as there’s no excavation or other costly work involved. They’re an especially great choice if the soil on your property is less than ideal for an in-ground pool. Plus, you can take them with you when you move. Adding a deck with a lounge area is an easy way to make an above-ground pool a relaxing respite from the rest of the world.
