In this article, we’re going to show you some of the most innovative pool designs for the summer of 2018, you’ll be fascinated.

Now that it’s summer, the patio, the terrace, and the yard are the spaces around the house where we’ll spend the majority of our time. That’s why it’s important to take care of them correctly so you’ll be completely comfortable in them.

If you’re lucky enough to have a pool (or are going to have one), it’s important to pay attention to its design and any care it will need. When it comes to pools, they’re constantly changing and taking on really spectacular designs. 

But, it’s not just the designs that are new and different: we’re also going to talk about collaborative pools. This is when people offer their pools to others since they don’t use their own often. There are also new pools that can understand our mood, which is incredible. These smart pools can modify their temperature, lighting and even the aromas in the surrounding environment.

So, if you add these new features to the new designs that are available, you’ll have an incredibly eye-catching pool. The following ideas for more innovative pool designs can help you create a very modern and unique pool. We’ll show them to you in the following sections.

With transparent edges

This is definitely a very modern idea. There aren’t any visual barriers so it will make the environment look and feel more comfortable and free. It’s as if the pool is a part of the environment. You can make all of the walls glass or just some of them.

As you already know, transparencies have always been popular. Yes, everyone can see you swim, but this doesn’t have to be a bad thing.

We’ve also found some really striking ideas. For example, a tiny pool with glass walls inside a much larger one, which also has glass walls. This will give you an even more unique visual effect.

Another interesting design is a pool with a glass floor. This design will give more play to pools that are inside the home, since you can see everything from below. These pools are kind of like the glass enclosures you see used for patios, balconies and terraces.

Although correct lighting is always important, it’s even more important when it comes to these examples. You can get a really nice effect by playing with these transparent walls and light bulbs.

Overflowing pools

Even though they’ve been around for a few years, the designs have undergone major improvements. For this design, the water always overflows over the edge of the pool, hence the name. To do that, you’ll need to build a bit of an incline. Place a grid around the pool that the water will pass through before it returns to its original point.

By using this system, you’ll enjoy a more silent environment since the water won’t collide with the walls of the pool. Also, the visual effect will be more tranquil and, therefore, make it a better place to rest. Additionally, the water will always be cleaner and more transparent since it will continuously be recycled. 

And, since the pool is automatically being filled, it’ll always be ready to use. The result is very attractive and will help you relax.

Most innovative pool designs: pools with waterfalls

This last design is really new and modern, and it also has several advantages. First, when the water falls, it helps to oxygenate the water inside the pool.

Also, the sound is very relaxing. It’s the same effect as having a fountain in the garden. Something important to keep in mind is that you don’t have to build it while you’re putting your pool in. You can easily add it in later. 

They’re great for adding decoration to your pool; some even have built-in lights. Obviously, the maintenance of each waterfall will depend on the material that you choose.


We hope these ideas have inspired you. Of course, what you can do will depend on your budget, but you can always look at it as a long-term investment. And, with the development of new apps, you can even make money on it by sharing your pool with other interested people.

Finally, remember that even if you can’t completely remodel your pool, you can partially re-do it. For example: add beautiful tiles, both on the edges and inside, covering the floor and walls. The result will be very eye-catching. Or, you can add spotlights with colored bulbs to create a beautiful environment at sunrise and sunset.

Swimming pools are definitely a great place to spend your free time during the hotter months, so make the most of them.
