First, you have to know that the options are endless for your pool shape. Choosing a shape essentially comes down to two major points: Personal preference and how much room you have in your yard. That being said, it’s wise to put additional thought into your overall goals to ensure that you are getting the most out of not only your pool but your entire backyard.


A classic rectangle’s sleek straight lines reinforce an architect’s grandeur, creating an ambiance of elegance. When you think Rectangle, think:

  • Luxurious
  • Traditional
  • Timeless
  • Sophisticated

But don’t let your home’s non-traditional elements deter you from this popular choice! This shape never goes out of style. Plus, there are so many variations of the rectangle, that you can change the aura very quickly. For example, a lap pool shape (a long and skinny rectangle) is primarily used for exercise but can also double as a small oasis in and of itself. These are great for the athlete looking to fit big dreams in a space.


Here we are the Wild Child of the pool shapes! Freeform pools are essentially any of the possible shapes that you didn’t learn in Kindergarten. These are perfect for homes that desire a more natural looking watering hole that blends into their surroundings more organically. These shapes are ideal when you are building your pool around existing features and landscaping! When you think Freeform, think:

  • Private Oasis
  • Tropical
  • Lagoon
  • Tranquil

Really though, you can create a freeform pool to replicate almost any shape you can imagine. Create your own lazy river. Big music buff? How about a guitar or piano-shaped pool? Whatever your passion, your pool can reflect it!
