14 spectacular swimming pools

Who wouldn't love to take a dip in one of these fantastic pools?

    If you don't have a good space for a traditionally shaped pool, a lap pool may be the way to go. It makes a huge impact on your outdoor living space without eating up the entire patio. Whether you're a hard-core lap swimmer, or just enjoy floating around and soaking up the sun, this pool is oh so inviting!
