Formal pools are usually rectangular in shape with straight sides. They can be designed and installed as either concrete pools or as vinyl lined pools. A pool designer can provide the best advice depending on your location. With their straight sides, formal pools not only resemble a roman bath but also make excellent lap pools. The tiled decking on a formal pool can also add to its ambiance. Formal pools offer the advantage of being easily fitted for pool covers. Reflection pools, a type of formal pool, have again become popular with the increase in water gardening.
