Swimming Pool Trends 2020

Swimming Pool Trends 2020
Dreaming of your own swimming pool? Check out these trends.

By summertime, most people in Maryland are itching to get into the water. Having your own backyard swimming pool avoids the crowds and hassles of public pools or beaches, and you can take a dip anytime you want. Swimming pool trends have been more or less the same since last year, but do lend inspiration for what is possible with your new swimming pool build. Here are some of the best features your pool could have in 2020.


Ledges, also known as tanning ledges, are a staple for any backyard swimming pool, and usually sit at the deep end. Your swimming pool doesn’t have to be a simple container for swimming; it is also a place to relax and spend time with friends and family. Plus, you always have a place to rest if you want to stay at the deep end.

Adjustable Lighting

The options for pool lighting have never been more flexible. Lighting has become smart and energy-efficient. With a phone app, you can control the color and the brightness of your pool lighting. Whether you want to throw a party or keep it calm and soothing, it’s all possible with today’s technology.

Dark Interiors

Dark pool interiors are a novelty feature that continues to prevail as one of the top swimming pool trends. Often, it is a dark blue, giving your pool the look of a tranquil lagoon. Because it absorbs and retains heat, you won’t have to spend as much on heating the pool. A dark pool interior is a fresh new look over the bright turquoise waters everyone is used to.

Shallow Pools

If you are interested in having a swimming pool mainly for exercise, water sports, or casual family fun, a shallow pool may be a good fit for you. Instead of having a deep end you won’t care for, you can keep the depth level all the way through.

Custom Builds

There’s no limit when it comes to the ingenuity in pool design today. One of the best swimming trends today is the ability to customize pools no matter what the landscape is like. While you can shape and position the pool into the landscape, you can also insert it even on a slope
