Whether one is looking for a simple, understated, rectangular pool, or whether one’s tastes gravitate towards a mini water-park complete with slides, waterfalls and caves, this post is definitely a great starting point for the design.  In this gallery of completed custom swimming pools from around the world, all of these projects, both large and small, will provide the requisite design inspiration to bring the perfect recreational features to one’s own backyard.

Here is an excerpt from the post:

 Here’s an incredible photo gallery of 100 backyard swimming pool designs of all shapes, sizes, colors and locations.  Welcome to our second backyard swimming pool designs gallery. You can view our first gallery of 61 backyard swimming pools here.

As a kid, I loved nothing more than swimming in pools. We didn’t have one, but we biked to the local rec center that did have an outdoor pool. I spent days and days in pools and loved every minute of it. Even now as an adult, I love pools and almost always choose a hotel with a pool.

Interestingly, most pools built today don’t have the features they did when I was a kid (1980’s), specifically diving boards and slides. I suspect they are safety issues and homeowners opt not to have those features. That said, some backyard pools are more like mini-water park complexes with rock walls, caves, waterfalls and even water slides. These premium features add considerably to the cost, and not everyone likes the appearance of them, but they do offer more swimming features. You either like the look or don’t.

This gallery features a diverse range of swimming pools. Most are large, but some are small. We chose the small pools to demonstrate that you don’t need a large property in order to enjoy your own pool.
