Tanning Ledge And Sun Shelf Options

Tanning Ledge and Sun Shelf Options

Having an inground pool is already an enjoyable, resplendent luxury. There’s one way to add some extra flair and utility to your inground pool, though. And, of course, that cherry on the top is a tanning ledge or a sun shelf!

You are already doing your physical and mental health a world of good; why not go a little further by integrating a tanning ledge!

It has never been easier to fit your inground pool with a tanning ledge, and the benefits have never been more apparent. More customizable and affordable than ever, read on to decide if you’re willing to take the plunge and have one built into your inground swimming pool. 

What Does an Inground Pool With a Tanning Ledge Let You Do?

Let’s address the most obvious question first. What exactly will you get out of having a tanning ledge or a sun shelf in your pool?

For starters, there’s the obvious. Sometimes you want to dip in the water but don’t want to swim. We all have those days where you’d instead rather take a relaxing watery soak in the sun.

You can also add furniture to the pool, like Ledge Lounger chairs. There’s nothing quite like laying in the sun with your feet in the pool and your favorite drink by your side. It’s one of the best ways to enjoy your swimming pool! If you want to have the ability to access quick shade, you can have an umbrella built into the tanning ledge.

Tanning ledges greatly benefit family members who suffer from mobility issues. They’ll be able to navigate the pool with far greater ease.

On the topic of family safety, it’s also a potential lifesaver if you’ve got children. You’ll still have to keep an eye on them, of course, but you can at least rest assured knowing they are in shallower water.

If you are already itching to have this aquatic wonderland, then you’ll be wondering about the customization and how it’ll fit your pool.

Is a Sun Shelf Right For My Pool: Sizes, Shapes, and Styles

Are you interested in a sun shelf? Then it’s time to rejoice; because of how popular sun shelves and tanning ledges are, you can tailor them to fit almost any swimming pool.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a rectangle pool, a square pool, or any other kind of pool. Even on a small pool with a tanning ledge, there will be options to fits your needs.

Stand-alone tanning ledges are also unique. The shallow area is basically attached to the pool, however, it is separated by a ledge, retaining wall and or waterfall. Add a few bubblers and viola!

You’ll have a choice of designs with an unlimited amount of customizations. But are you worried it will not fit into your budget? It’s vital to speak with a professional pool builder about to cost to build it within a new custom pool or as an add-on during a pool renovation project.  

Will It Be a Stand Alone Tanning Ledge or Other Type?

The better understanding you have about an inground pool with a tanning ledge, the more likely it is that you’ll get your money’s worth. First, choose a reputable pool builder that pays attention to the quality of their work and the design of the individual swimming pool.

As we have also referred to as sun shelves in this article, tanning ledges are a growing hot trend for homeowners. Do you own or manage a resort, condo, townhome or other and are looking to build a new pool or renovate an existing one. Tanning ledges where people can lounge and children can play is a perfect add-on.
