Getting A Tanning Ledge On Your Pool!

Get Started With A Tanning Ledge Addition Today!

When it comes to designing and installing a new pool, you have several things to consider – pool location and orientation in the yard, access points, and whether or not to include railing for easy entrance or exit. Adding an enticing tanning ledge to enhance entrances and exits in your pool, as well as to allow partial water access, only increases the ability to enjoy your pool. 

Tanning shelves are a popular addition to pools, especially here in Arizona. They’re known by other names, such as the Baja shelf, but all share one thing in common: creating a comfortable space for you to enjoy and socialize in! Tanning ledges are shallow and can often fit lounge chairs for a partial dip in the refreshing water. They are also perfect for individuals like children and the elderly who have a hard time with deep water.

So How Big Of A Ledge Should I Get?

When it comes to how large of a tanning ledge to install, your options are pretty much as limitless as the overall pool design! Whether you have a geometric or freeform pool, and whether it’s made from gunite or fiberglass, there are plenty of options. Consider whether you will have pets or children utilizing the step for relaxation, or if it will be a smaller and more personal size. The size of the ledge will be around five feet at minimum width, so you can plan to bring in additional features such as fountains, umbrellas, or even chairs!

When it comes to the depth of the ledge, you typically are given an option between 9 and 18 inches – think about the ways in which you’ll want to utilize the pool to determine what depth is best. If you’re struggling to figure out what works, then no worries! Our team of trained builders at Lakeside Pools are here to offer customization guidance for including your pool tanning ledge.
