Forever Dreaming of Infinity-Edge Pools? Check Out These 11 Stunners

These 11 pools pair an infinity edge with a stunning view to create the ultimate luxury spot for lounging.

If there's one thing I could add to my own yard, it would be a swimming pool, but I don’t quite have enough room for one. So, while I resign myself to a kiddie pool on the patio, I’ll daydream about the ultimate in luxury swimming pools: infinity pools. There is something so dreamy about a pool that seems to extend into the sunset or the sea.

The owners of this home like to relax by their pool and wanted to emphasize the view to the Puget Sound. The designer selected an infinity-edge design to pull the eye toward the horizon and provide a constant sound of falling water.

This one is just a little ridiculous, right? This is a vacation home on the island of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands. While there may not be much room for actual swimming, I’d be lounging in this pool every single evening with a fruity cocktail in hand to catch the stunning sunset.

We just keep coming back to the view, and Amy Conner-Murphy picked another fabulous one with this infinity pool set in the mountains of North Carolina. I love how the clouds are reflected on the glassy surface to create a mirrored effect. 

Spectacular Pool and Patio Design for Lakefront Property

Spectacular Pool and Patio Design for Lakefront Property

Strategic design equals stunning effect when considering Jason Brownlee's landscape plan for this lakefront property. Seen from above, the three-tiered, infinity-edged pool in black PebbleSheen onyx provides a dramatic contrast against the subtle tones of the patio and Mediterranean-inspired home while maintaining the contours of the radial theme of both the home and its location. From the ground, however, the pool highlights the lakefront view and gives the illusion of a water-to-water continuous connection.

Infinity-edge swimming pools can be equally beautiful when their edges are visible. This pool designed by Jason Brownlee looks like an oversized fountain when viewed from above. The onyx tilework adds to the rippling effects of the water, and the entire design is crowned by a firepit for good measure.
