4 Creative Plunge Pool Designs

If you're thinking about adding a plunge pool to your backyard, you're in for a treat! There are so many creative and unique ways to design a plunge pool, and the options are nearly endless. Whether you want a concrete plunge pool that blends in with your patio or an above ground pool that makes a statement, there's sure to be a design that's perfect for you. And the best part? Plunge pools are relatively inexpensive, so you can enjoy all the benefits without breaking the bank. So what are you waiting for? It's time to take the plunge!

Read on to discover some of the most interesting and exciting ways to add a bit of creativity to your plunge pool design!

1. Concrete Plunge Pools

Concrete is, by far, the most versatile option when it comes to plunge pool design. While it may involve some additional expense, it is the most customisable material available. Concrete plunge pool designers have full scope to design a pool that fits your exact needs and desires due to the fact that each concrete plunge pool is a bespoke creation. Looking for a plunge pool to fit a specific space? No problem. Looking for an unusual shape? Not an issue. Looking for a stock standard rectangular concrete plunge pool? Also not a problem! 

Again, it is important to note that this kind of individual design will incur costs, but if that is an issue and concrete is still your material of choice, don’t worry! Many companies also stock many types of precast plunge pool. These are a much more affordable choice, as they are manufactured in bulk. A precast plunge pool can work as an amazing canvas onto which you can pour your creative spirit, whether that be with a unique finish or an exciting tiling pattern.

2. Above Ground Plunge Pool

Above ground plunge pools come in a variety of materials, shapes, and sizes. While bespoke creations are available, these are typically a more affordable choice of plunge pool as they are often prefabricated by their manufacturers. Above ground plunge pools are getting more popular as space gets scarcer in the property market, which has caused a lot of innovation on the development side of things. You can find round plunge pools with spiral staircases wrapped around them, vinyl lined pools with wood-panelled exteriors, and even above ground pools that implement a water-feature to add that extra bit of aesthetic pleasure!

3. Round Plunge Pool

There’s something about a round pool that gives off a certain sense of luxury. Maybe it’s a primal leftover, an instinct that tells you that this is a waterhole - an oasis, a safe place to relax. Whatever the reason, a round plunge pool is a real statement that can increase the value of your property and your enjoy of the summer. Whether you choose to set it above ground or in ground, this style of plunge pool will give you the perfect setting to relax with friends and family, leaning blissfully against the edge while you sip a drink and play with some inflatable toys. While round plunge pools aren’t conducive to exercise, they are an excellent option for those of us more interested in entertaining than getting a workout.
