Could your pool use a little love this season? Or just eager to amp up your summer parties by taking your pool design to the next level, but don’t know where to start? Whether it’s determining the right colours and layout, or choosing a new water feature like a spillover spa – the myriad of options can be challenging. At Rideau Pools, we’re here to help by showcasing the top inground pool trends of 2019 to get you inspired. Here they are!

In-Water Sun Loungers

In-water sun loungers, also known as sun shelves, are exactly what they sound like – raised surfaces in the pool that let you bathe in the sun while staying cool in the water at the same time. This is an excellent way to add a little something extra to your pool, especially for designs that are kidney-shaped or rectangular. It’s a worthy addition to enhance the comfort and look of your pool.

Modern Clean Outlines

Pools can come in all different shapes and sizes, but one of the top inground pool trends of 2019 that’s gaining momentum is the modern, clean layout. Simple and minimalistic pool shapes reign supreme this year as more homeowners aim to create a relaxing, spa-like oasis mixed with clean, sharp outlines, swim out edges and natural stone. The darker tones and simplistic nature of this look creates an intimate, contemporary and elegant design that we can’t get enough of.

Luxurious Water Features

Luxury water features and finishes are more popular than ever as new and innovative designs offer a stunning variety for pool owners to choose from. Beyond the design, outline, and colours, there is much more that you can add to give your pool some personal style and pizzazz. Spillover spas, waterfalls, deck jets with LED lighting, infinity edges, and even fire bowls are some of our favourite additions this year.


In the past, pools were the sole focal point of the backyard, being front and centre – and sometimes, sticking out like a sore thumb against the surrounding landscape. But nowadays, we’re seeing more pool owners seeking designs that integrate their pool with the landscape. These ‘poolscapes’ incorporate stone and rockfaces with customized gardens along the perimeters of the pool to create a relaxed, cohesive vibe where everything seamlessly intertwines. This also lends inspiration from traditional, country-style layouts dating back centuries ago.
