2023 Inground Pool Trends to Watch

These inground pool design options take your pool to the next level, keeping it on-trend and ensuring it doesn’t look outdated in a year or two. Get inspired with these 2023 inground pool trends. We can incorporate one or all of these features into your new pool installation.

Tanning Ledges

A tanning ledge, also known as a Baja shelf or splash pad, is a shallow ledge built into the shallow end of your fiberglass or concrete pool. The water is just a few inches deep, making it perfect for toddlers who don’t want to go deeper and for lounging poolside to work on your tan. Just add waterproof loungers made for this purpose. 

As an added benefit, if you let your dog swim in your pool, a tanning ledge makes it easy for them to get out of the pool independently.

Saltwater Pools

A saltwater pool gives your pool the feel of the ocean and removes the smell of chlorine that a regular pool can bring. By incorporating a salt chlorine generator, you can use fewer pool chemicals and have water that’s gentler on your skin and eyes. With this trend, you can opt for saltwater in a new pool or upgrade your existing inground pool.

Water Features Galore

You might think having a pool in your backyard would be enough of a water feature, but that’s not what the trends are saying. Pool waterfalls, grottos, and fountains, oh my! You can add a fantastic array of water features to your pool to create a tropical lagoon vibe or an elegant resort-like feel.

Pool Lighting

More homeowners are opting to install pool lighting at the same time they install their inground pool. LED pool lights make it easy and fun to host a nighttime pool party or set the mood for a romantic evening. Pentair has a great selection that you can control from your smartphone.
