15 Lovely Oval Pool Designs

Usually, we see pools that are rectangular in shape and we would be pleased to see pools that are in a different shape. Even seeing an infinity pool would wow us! How much more if you see a pool that has a lovely shape? Adding curves to a pool make it appear a lot softer and lighter to the eyes. That is why some people prefer to have pools with Grecian, Romanian or even an oval shape.

Well, we think that there is a slight difference between having a rectangular pool and an oval pool because they are both elongated and long only that the oval pool as rounded edges. If we speak of space, there would certainly be subtracted spaces near the edges but that isn’t much too. So, today, we will show you how beautiful an oval pool can be through some images we have gathered below:

So, what can you say about these pools? They sure are lovely aren’t they? Well, oval pools are the next best option after rectangular ones either for a small or a large pool. Choosing the oval shape makes your pool a perfect highlight for your yard or indoor space because even if you don’t add so many pool accessories, it would stand out and look beautiful. Aside from an oval pool, you can also try having a kidney shaped pool which is also another shape that is used by most homeowners.
