Swimming pools can be built in any shape you want nowadays. Oval, curved, rectangular, square... practically any shape you can imagine can be used to create a swimming pool. Nonetheless, one of the most popular trends recently is that of L-shaped swimming pools. Innovative and elegant, L-shaped swimming pools are synonymous with cutting-edge modern design, a highly sought-after characteristic in both architecture and interior design today.
The advantages of L-shaped swimming pools
Opting for an L-shaped swimming pool not only creates an aesthetically pleasing result but also a number of other advantages that stem from the shape itself:
- They can be adapted to fit the available space. This type of swimming pool can be used to skirt any obstacles or previously developed areas that you want to keep untouched, such as a terrace or a room in your house, thereby adapting to suit the characteristics of the available space.
- Making the most of the bathing space. Steps are usually placed in the shorter of the two sections that make up the L, meaning that the longer bathing section can be used without such obstructions.
- They can be blended in more easily with your house. L-shaped swimming pools tend to be used to skirt certain pre-existing structures that are already occupying space in the terrace/garden. This shape helps them blend in visually with those structures or your house itself.
- Safety for children. An L shape means that two well defined spaces with different depths can be designed, with the smaller and shallower section being used by children.
