1. Larger Shallow Areas
More and more homeowners are opting to extend their shallow zone, especially those with young families. The shallow area is perfect for kids and even dogs to play in the summer sun. Older kids and adults can appreciate a larger shallow area as well, because it allows more room for playing games like pool volleyball and basketball.

2. Sundecks
The shallow water trend is becoming so popular that many homeowners are adding on sundecks. Sundecks have about a foot of water. Again, they’re a great place for kids and pets to play. But more than that, they’re also the perfect spot to relax in a lounge chair and keep cool. Others like to use their sundecks for tanning or even yoga.

3. Pool Benches
The diving board and waterslide remain popular pool add-ons, but pool benches are also gaining popularity. Pool benches, sometimes known as cuddle coves, provide a great place to sit in the water. They’re perfect if you need to take a break from swimming laps and if you want to catch up with friends.

4. Color-Changing Lights
Night swims and pool parties are even better with color-changing LED lights. They cast a vibrant hue over the water to set the perfect nighttime mood and kick off every gathering the right way. Some LED lights also come with programmable shows and other cool features to really enhance the design that much more.

5. Energy-Efficient Salt Water Pool Systems
To save money over time and achieve a more eco-friendly pool, a lot of people are choosing salt water pool systems, which can actually save you up to 80% on seasonal chemical expenses, or electric heat pumps, which last longer and can save you over $500 each year. With the rise of energy-efficient cars, appliances and HVAC systems, it’s only natural that pools follow suit.
