Choosing the Right Shape and Design for Your New Pool - TMC Custom Pools

featured-imgThe shape and design of your swimming pool is only limited by your imagination. Modern swimming pool design allows you to create a customized feature that complements your property to add appeal and functionality that blends seamlessly into your lifestyle. Designing the perfect pool means taking into account several factors, including the existing features in your yard, the look and style of your home, and your personal preferences for pool use.  

Pool Shape

In the past, swimming pools were typically square, rectangular, or round basins. While these shapes remain popular, they are no longer the only options available when designing the ideal pool for your home. A square or rectangular pool is an excellent choice if you plan to use it for swimming laps, diving, or water sports. Alternatively, round, kidney-shaped, or even freeform pools are also popular modern pool designs, allowing you to increase the square footage of your pool, customize the shape to suit your yard and your tastes, and enjoy a more organic and natural backyard feature.

Pool Design

Shape is only one aspect of your overall pool design. Other design elements include basin depth, landscaping, decking style, and water features. All of these elements come together to create a personalized pool that you will enjoy using every day. Depth is tied directly into your intended use of the pool—if you plan to use your pool for diving or swimming games, it should be deeper than if you want to use it for lap swimming or entertainment only. Water features, decking, and landscaping should be chosen to meld with the style of your home and your property, tying your pool into the larger aesthetic whole for a seamless, high-end look.

This company exceeded my expectations on every level. They were very courteous and showed up on time. The work was outstanding and they were priced very competitively too. They worked very quickly and did everything that was promised. Their quote beat other pool companies by a LOT and we were very pleased with the finished job. I would not hesitate to call them again in the future and most likely will. Very happy with this work.

- Diane C., Tucson

Had some cracked bricks around the edges and they did a quick repair job and didn’t get much debris in the pool at all. Definitely will call them if I need a pool contractor again. This was so pain free we’re talking about remodeling all the bricks around the edge of the pool!

- Alicia C., Tucson

Amazing customer service. I felt like we were taken care of like we were a part of their family. They went the extra mile to make my grandmother feel extra special and not pressured to make fast decisions. Always professional. I would definitely recommend to my friends and family for any pool needs.
