If you are looking for some great ideas for your backyard pool or are just curious about the hottest new trends in pool design, we’ve compiled a list of the top 7 swimming pool trends of 2016 & 2017

  1. Tanning Ledges

Tanning ledges are shallow ledge along the pool edge.  They are only a few inches deep so they are great for both adults looking to tan but stay cool in the water and younger children who need a shallow space for safety.

  1. Fire Features

The gorgeous mix of fire and water is making a big statement this year.  Fire features like fire bowls, fire orbs, and fireplaces built right into pools to create a wonderful play on the elements.

  1. LED Light Features

LEDs are the latest in lighting technology.  Not only are they environmentally friendly, but they can now be incorporated as an economical way to add spotlights, highlights, and color features to your pool.

  1. Glass Tile

Glass tile has been making a splash in bathroom design for a couple of years now.  So it’s only natural they’ve become the hottest tile choice for adding interest to the waterline around swimming pools.

  1. Travertine Stone

Travertine stone is taking over as the preferred decking material.  This very attractive natural stone provides a non-slip, durable surface and stays cool under the blazing hot sun.

  1. Automatic Covers

Automatic covers are the newest technological innovation for 2016.  These covers retract and expand on their own, making pool maintenance a breeze.  Plus you no longer have to worry about the tripping hazard of the hooks and grommets required for traditional pool covers. What’s more, you can even use your smartphone to control your cover!

  1. Infinity Pools And Spas

Infinity pools and spas have a drop off ledge that fills a lower basin.  This gives the pool or spa the look that it goes on forever.  Some of the most exotic pools in the world feature infinity edges and they are now available for anyone’s backyard pool.
