Inspiration – Inground Pool Designs

When most people think about inground pool designs, they imagine a large backyard with a full-sized pool. But the beauty of an inground swim spa is the functionality of a full-sized pool with a much smaller footprint.

These inground pool designs will have you reimagining what it looks like to have an inground pool at home.


This inground pool design brings the outside in with a wall of windows that can be opened or closed as weather permits. The pool is one of the largest swim spa pools on the market, but it is still smaller than a full-sized pool. At 10′ x 14′, the SwimEx 1000 S is large enough for side-by-side swimming and can fit 8-10 comfortably. It has multiple depths, an adjustable water current on one side, and a large still water area on the other side.


Can you think of a better way to capture the stunning beauty of the southwest? We can’t. This installation incorporates remarkable stone craftsmanship with reflective windows for a seamless transition between the pool and its surroundings. The recessed inground pool design adds some additional depth to the space. The platinum colored polystone adds contrast to the southwest style.


This homeowner’s second SwimEx pool, installed in their Norway home, is simple and serene, with space that includes a towel warmer and a shower. This 600 S is constructed in 4-pieces of fiberglass, making it easy to install in tight spaces. But don’t be fooled by the tranquil environment. The 600 S is the most powerful fitness pool on the market. The current runs 28″ deep and fast, creating a strong river-like flow for the most effective workouts.


This Southern New England inground pool design complements the home’s coastal feel with white marble walls, white marble floors, and a white pool. This 1000 S was customized with three different floor depths and custom coping on the left side of the pool for the pool cover roller. Skylights bring natural light into this beautiful room.

A swim spa can be the perfect choice for an inground pool. These small pools take up less space, are easy to maintain, and cost less to operate. Try our interactive Pool Finder to find the right pool for your home:
