Top Inground Fiberglass Pool Trends You Don’t Want to Miss

Homeowners like you are looking for ways to turn their backyard into a great place to get away. That’s why, now more than ever, a fiberglass pool is the perfect investment in an escape that will pay dividends year in and year out. Pool owners love them because they’re beautiful, come with an array of fun, convenience, and comfort features, and–aside from being a staycation location that you can come back to time and again–they increase the value of your home. Pool builders recommend fiberglass inground pools for their versatility, durability, and low pool maintenance requirements and cost. As innovation after innovation in fiberglass pool designs is unveiled, and staycations become more popular for families across the country, pool buyers are choosing the luxury and elegance of inground fiberglass pools. Here are the top fiberglass pool trends today: 

Built-in Bars and Sunken Living Areas.

But now, Thursday Pools holds the patent on the world’s FIRST Sunken Living Area Fiberglass Pool!

Where will yours take you? The sky’s the limit.


The Backyard Beach.

That’s why beach lovers around the country are choosing the world’s first and only true beach entry fiberglass pool for their backyard escape. Once only available in concrete pools, the beach entry is now available for your inground fiberglass pool. Enjoy the luxurious feel of a day at the beach in the privacy and convenience of your own backyard.


Tanning Ledges.

Tanning ledges have been around for a while, and they just keep getting better. Originally called sun shelves, tanning ledges used to be smaller than they are today. But as fiberglass pool owners asked for more spacious ledges, fiberglass pool manufacturers answered the call.

What is a tanning ledge? A tanning ledge is a shallow lounging area at one end of the pool, typically about 12 inches deep. A well-designed tanning ledge can accommodate two ledge loungers with room for other swimmers to enter and exit the pool. They can even be customized with water features such as jets and bubblers to add to the ambiance.

If you’re still on the fence, here are a few more reasons to love tanning ledges:

    • They’re great for sun-worshippers. Tanning ledges provide a perfect perch for you to relax and unwind while you soak up the sun and indulge in “me time.”
    • They’re great for kids. Tanning ledges make an excellent landing pad for kids to splash and play as they grow accustomed to the water and learn the rules of pool safety.
    • They’re great for pets. Let’s not forget our furry friends who also like to cool off on a hot day! Pets, particularly puppies and older dogs, need a shallow spot to get in and out of the pool.

If you want it all, the convenience of urban living and a backyard oasis, then you need to look no further than the Aspen fiberglass pool designs.

Coming in at 12’ x 25’ or 14’ x 30’, these designs are one of the best fiberglass pool trends that give you all the features  and fit just right in smaller backyards.


Swim lanes. 

Of course, pools are meant for fun and relaxation. But the opportunity to get a great cardio and strength workout while enjoying the water is also a significant benefit of pool ownership. Wide open swim areas are one of the evergreen fiberglass pool trends. Fiberglass pools can be just as functional as they are beautiful when you add a swim lane to the other fun features, like tanning ledges and built-in benches for socializing with friends.

Darker colors.
