It’s finally time to install the back yard pool you’ve been dreaming about for years. But how do you know which shape pool to choose? The only real limitations you face when it comes to pool shapes and sizes, are your imagination, budget, and space. If you need some help choosing a pool for your garden, read on to learn more about some of the most popular swimming pool shapes.



Classic and traditional, a rectangular pool can be a practical pick. It provides lots of usable pool space and suits both the elegant sophistication of conventional architecture and exciting contemporary home designs.


Kidney shaped

The kidney shape pool was hugely popular back in the 90s, and we see a resurgence of interest in this design. Its softer look fits many architectural styles and can be customised with a range of unique features.


Free form

Free form pools are the ultimate in customisation, allowing you to create a bespoke look for your garden. Usually made from poured concrete, the only limitation here is your imagination.


Infinity pools

Infinity pools are one of the most dramatic pool designs. Made to look like the water flows over the edge into the distance, the water actually flows over the pool’s weir wall into a hidden trough where it’s recycled back into the pool.


How to choose

With lots of choices available, it can be challenging to determine which shape is best for you. Before you make a decision on pool shape, you’ll also need to consider:


  • How you will use the pool
  • How much space you have in your garden
  • The overall aesthetic you want
  • The cost
  • Pool fencing options.


Discuss all this with an experienced swimming pool builder. They will help you as you start the journey to transform your outdoor living space.
