Infinity Pools & Vanishing Edges

Infinity pools (also called vanishing-edge pools or negative-edge pools) have edges that seem to extend beyond the pool and continue right into the horizon. This popular style creates a breathtaking effect and will enhance a scenic view. Explore ideas for your own pool design.

This freeform infinity pool and spillover spa was designed and built around the existing landscape and oak trees. The entire scene is breathtaking at night. Aquatech Pools by John Clarkson, Jacksonville, Florida www.luxurypools.c...

    What a dream yard!..... Sigh....

    Fantastic design, I'd be a little concerned about the maintenance caused by the big oak tree over the pool and the seating area feels tight on the upper deck. Otherwise I really like the stone work on the sun shelf and the interaction between the wood deck and the spa.

This contemporary infinity pool uses cubes of travertine to form its back edge. Lined with Forest Pebble Tec® and Oceanside Glasstile® at the waterline, the pool defines well-designed elegance.

This deck-level perimeter-overflow luxury pool includes one side that works like a vanishing infinity edge, taking full advantage of the property’s oceanfront view. The travertine marble decking blends beautifully with the Ipé wood used on the dock.

The elegance of the home demanded that the pool be equally sophisticated. Mission accomplished: the perimeter-overflow (which functions like a 360-degree vanishing edge) spills gently over a tiled wall into a pool that includes fountains and a submerged spa. Deck jets add an unexpected touch of merriment. Advanced Pool Designs, Rancho Cordova, California. Photo courtesy of Brad Taylor Photography
