Swimming Pool Trends for 2023

Swimming pools can be stunning, especially with these trends for 2023!

There is something about having a backyard swimming pool that elevates your everyday life. There is nothing like the ability to go for a swim on a hot summer day on your own property. If you are in the market for a new swimming pool or are looking to make an upgrade or two, check out these swimming pool trends for 2023 to inspire you.

Swimming Pool Trends for 2023

Dark & Muted Pool Liners

For several years, the swimming pool designs have leaned farther away from the bright, brilliant blues of traditional swimming pools and toward darker, moodier pool colors. Your pool liner or tiles could be a dramatic deep blue, a dark blue-green, black, or a muted green-gray.

Unique Pool Tile Border

Your pool border is the section of the pool wall that is above water and runs around the edge just below the pool coping. You don’t have to go with the same material or color as the pool liner; some swimming pools have unique tile shapes and colors that give them a creative edge.

Floating Pool Lights

You can find multiple types of pool lights that are above water and underwater. You will want to have an arrangement of pool lights that are underwater and in the surrounding landscape for the most visibility. You could also enjoy fun floating pool lights that bob around on the water!


If anything can be connected to the Internet, someone has found a way or has at least tried. Swimming pools are no different, but a smart pool can enable you to do everything from controlling the pool’s light colors and temperature to tracking its efficiency.

Tanning Shelves

Everyone agrees that tanning shelves are here to stay as a feature you could add to a pool of significant size. It all depends on your swimming pool goals. A tanning shelf is a shallow ledge covered by a few inches of pool water, jutting directly into the pool. 

Looking at the Big Picture

When considering your swimming pool design, look at the overall backyard design. Would you like to incorporate an outdoor kitchen, a pool deck or patio, or landscaping? Consider all these factors when budgeting for your swimming pool.
