Oval Shaped In-Ground Pools
An oval shaped in-ground pools can best fit in the category of rectangular pools. More often, they do have rounded edges for a more stylish and softer look.
Choosing the Right Pool Shape and Size For You
Deciding on a pool design is basically a matter of preference. There are many factors that you should consider when chooseing your shape. First and foremost, you need to determine how much space you have in your yard to work with. If your backyard is small, than a small shaped pool is your best choice or even a smaller oval shaped in-ground pool.
Also think about who will be using the pool and how they’ll be using it. If the pool is primarily for exercise, then you generally want a long and relatively deep pool to make laps easier. If it’s more for kids, then a small and shallow pool will do. Finally, if it’s all about luxury, then you might want an oval shaped in-ground pool or rounded pool.
If the pool is close to the house, you might want to go with the sharper angles of a rectangular or square pool in order to match the man-made contours of your home. If the pool is more of a standalone feature, curved corners and/or freeform shapes make it look more natural and blend into the scenery.
Ultimately, the choice is up to you. Knowing some of the basic designs is just a launching point for coming up with a plan that is perfect for you.
