Building an outdoor swimming pool is not easy at all. That requires so many things related to shape, construction cost, maintenance cost, ground, etc.

In the past, the traditional pool has the rectangular shape. But now, the design of swimming pools has changed and you may choose from a mountain shapes. We have collected 40 spectacular images to inspire you. Perhaps you did not know that the first kidney shaped swimming pool is designed by landscape architect Thomas Church in 1948 for the Donnell family’s modern home in Sonoma, California. Until that time, most swimming pools were rectangular in shape, for a purely lap-swimming experience. The unusual swimming pool design of Thomas Church was photographed for many magazines and the kidney shaped swimming pools became a very popular choice for homeowners.
