Formal Pool

Sometimes referred to as “classic” or “traditional” pool, this refers to a design style that usually includes one or more of the following elements:

  • Clean, straight lines (usually a rectangle) and/or geometric shapes
  • Brick coping or “paving tiles” around the perimeter
  • Brick or tiled decking, or stamped concrete with a brick or paver pattern

The more of the above features you use, the more formal your swimming pool will look. (See also Grecian/Roman Pool.)
