L Shape Pools

L-Shape Pools: The Unique Version of the Classic Rectangular Pool

Looking for a classic pool shape with a little bit of pizzazz? The L-shaped pool is a great and unique choice! Having all of the advantages that come with a straight-line pool and more, the L-shape is a perfect pool design that stands out from the crowd. There are two types of L-shape pools: geometric and “Lazy Ls”. The geometric L-shape has hard, defined lines, like the letter “L”, and the “Lazy Ls” are more curved and natural in shape. Since straight-lined pools are so common, try straying from the norm with an L-shape.

Versatility of the L-Shape Design

The most obvious benefit to having an L-shaped pool over a straight-lined pool is that there are clearly two defined areas. What to do with those areas is completely up to you, and will depend on your wants and needs! There are a few ways Pool Stop recommends going about the separation:

  • Have a Designated Shallow End

The tail of the L could be a designated shallow end. This could be for your little ones to splash comfortably in their own area, or for your pool to have a lounging area separate from the lap pool. This way, you get the best of both worlds– a deep end for diving and a shallow end for cooling off. This is a great solution for a family of mixed ages who all want to enjoy summer fun.

  • Use the Space for Stairs

If you want a spacious area for swimming, think about having the pool steps in the tail of the L-shape. Stairs can feel like they take up a lot of space or get in the way of certain activities. By having the L-shape, you don’t need to trade in stairs for a ladder or compromise your swimming space. You could even have an elongated top step for adding ledge loungers and a tanning area!

  • Add an Inground Spa

Thinking about adding extra relaxation to your personal paradise? The L-shape is perfect for adding an inground spa to your pool. When you’re finished with your laps, swim over to the other end to heal your muscles and body from your hard work.

Increased Property Values in Dallas, TX

One of the best benefits of having an L-shape is that it’s different from the most classic straight-line pool. With Dallas’s heat, you may notice that many houses in your neighborhood have an inground pool. Most likely, having an L-shape will differentiate yours from the rest of them. Of course it’s great to be unique, but this will also benefit you if and when it comes to selling your house down the road.
