Swimming pools are fun, right? If you’re here, we’d be inclined to think you agree. Not only is it fun to take a dip in one, but the process leading up to that first swim should be fun, too (or at least we think so)!

You look out into your yard to see that open, green space and it just feels like something’s…missing. You’ve been dreaming about having more quality time with your family at home - a private space for you and the ones you love to unwind. After thinking and thinking and some more thinking, you realize having your own pool just might be exactly what you’re looking for. We’ve been there too, friends - the appeal of your own private swimming spot is hard to match with anything else. Bringing families together is one of the things that makes us most passionate about the world of inground pools. You know you want it, so now the question is what size/shape/style/color do you want? Deciding on a size is often the first step since your backyard may only be able to accommodate a pool so large. What is a good size swimming pool, anyway? This is a pretty broad question with a lot of good answers, so we’d like to take a shot at helping you reach the answer that’s right for you. We’ll primarily focus on rectangle inground pool sizes since the rectangle shape is most popular. Today, we’re going to discuss what are the different sizes of pools available, what you might see most often, how a pool’s size may (or may not) affect the cost of your pool, and even what other shapes are out there in case a rectangle isn’t suiting your fancy. We also want to let you know up front - inground fiberglass pools are our wheelhouse, but they may not be a best fit for everyone. We’re going to give you some information to hopefully help you make an informed decision on not only pool size and shape, but the pool type, as well.

If you ask someone who isn’t from Indiana what they think of when you mention the state, you may hear things like “corn” or “open fields” or, more notably, maybe “the Indy 500”. Contrary to the…slightly disappointing answers you might get (minus the 500 of course), Indiana is a place full of rich history, fun things to do and weather that can sometimes leave you guessing about what tomorrow will bring (surprises are fun, right?)
