Vanishing edge pools are nothing short of stunning. The design of these new pools is intended to create unmatched visual interest and an especially high-end swimming environment for homeowners. Vanishing edge pools, sometimes called infinity or negative edge pools, are popular in many luxury resorts and exotic vacation destinations. They're also becoming very popular among homeowners; once you see one for yourself, you will understand why!
What Makes a Vanishing Edge Pool So Special?
The key feature of a vanishing edge pool is, of course, its vanishing edge. Traditional swimming pools are created with the surface of the water below the edges of the pool itself. Vanishing edge pools are different. When the pool builder constructs these amazing creations, the water is kept level with one border of the pool, gently spilling over the vanishing edge before it is collected and returned to the pool’s circulation system.
The vanishing edge creates an illusion that the water appears to be supported by nothing and falls breathtakingly into the surrounding landscape. It is common to see vanishing edge pools at oceanside resorts where the illusion is further enhanced by making the pool appear to extend into the sea itself. In homes, it is common to use darker materials as pool lining, which enhances the reflections seen in the pool.
