Now that old man winter is behind us, some much-needed fun in the sun is approaching. And the great thing about creating a custom pool for your home is that they’re so many options to appeal to your aesthetics and lifestyle. This pool’s design states that the owners wanted to achieve a balance between form and function. 

With this particular design, the family wanted to create a space to cater to their at-home training and still be able to entertain their guests. As guests to this luxurious home, when stepping onto the backyard we take notice of the tempting sun shelf that is just deep enough for dipping our toes. The sun shelf then connects to a wide sparkling lap pool. With the two lanes marked distinctively with black lines, swimmers can focus on their strokes when they train. But when it’s time to relax and kick back, there’s ample space for that as well. To the right, a built-in grilling station is available, and to the left, a fireplace is nestled away by comfy sofas and lounge chairs. From healthy fun in the sun, to entertaining guests at night, this pleasant pool is just what the doctor ordered for a well-balanced lifestyle.

This is just one of many custom ideas Van Kirk & Sons has brought to life. Now that summer is just around the corner, what ideas do you have planned for your family’s upcoming summer soirees?

After riding a few rollercoasters and walking around the many theme parks in Orlando, Cabana Bay Beach Resort is the spot for all the “cool cats” to kick back in style. The newest addition to Universal Studio’s array of resorts offers vacationers a nostalgic experience tracing back to the groovy era of the 60’s, which explored big hair, beach balls, and the good ole’ American family vacation. 


What better way to ring in the New Year than with some “infinite” inspiration? If your 2014 resolutions include building your dream pool than look no further than our blog for inspiration, starting with this incredible Infinity Edge pool.Located in the town of Palm Beach, this Infinity Edge style pool takes a timeless European tradition and sets it against a South Floridian backdrop.

Setting foot onto the deck we’re welcomed by 16”x16” deck pavers with turf grass creating a classic visual pattern. Dominican Coral Stone and chiseled Limestone were selected to frame the perimeter of the pool and for a natural finish to the infinity edge wall. The glass blue tile that fills in the pool floor mirrors the sky and flows right into the vast blue sea. A pair of palms complete the serene setting by providing just enough shade when you need it.

Take a quick dip and play the sparkling video of Van Kirk & Sons’ latest Infinity Edge Pool.
