Swimming Pools Steps, Bars & Sun Shelves

Add unique detail and attractive focal points to your pool with decorative steps, sunbathing shelves or an in-pool bar. Create a relaxing oasis with chic sitting areas and entertaining spaces designed to make your pool a one-of-a-kind retreat.

Custom additions to your residential pool can transform your outdoor living space into a beautiful and functional area for you and all your guests. At Van Kirk & Sons Pools and Spas, we can help you incorporate steps, sun shelves and bars that will transform your backyard into a luxurious and enjoyable living space.


Decorative Floating and Inground Pool Steps

Custom pool steps are a simple yet effective way to enhance your residential pool. Steps should be functional, but they can still add a sense of luxury and exclusivity.

There are many pool step designs to choose from, so you’ll surely find the right fit for your outdoor space. Select a subtle design that blends seamlessly into your pool, or choose bold colors or patterns to make a dramatic and eye-catching focal point.

Beach Entry Swimming Pool Design

A beach entry pool is an inground pool with shallow ends that slope into the pool. This gradual sloping is similar to wading into the water when you are on the beach. 

A beach entry design can elevate your pool in several ways by:

  • Enhancing aesthetics: Beach entries look stunning, adding to your pool’s attractiveness and your property value.
  • Increasing accessibility: The beach entry’s gentle slope makes the pool easily accessible for all ages and abilities. 
  • Creating more relaxation spaces: Incorporating a beach entry in your pool creates more areas for lounging and relaxing in shallow waters.

Sun Shelves

Sun shelves are long, flat edges just below the water along the shallow end of a pool. They blend functionality and attractiveness to increase your pool’s value. Sun shelves offer benefits such as:

  • Accessibility: Sun shelves create a ledge with shallow water, perfect for individuals of all ages and abilities.
  • Versatility: Whether you want to get your feet wet or soak up the sun while enjoying the cool water, you can use a sun shelf to increase the versatility of your pool space.
  • Customization: Sun shelves have a basic design that opens up opportunities for customization, so you can add seating, shade cover, water features and more to craft your perfect outdoor space.

Swim-Up Bars

Enjoy the luxury of a resort at home by adding a swim-up bar to your residential pool. Swim-up bars add barstool seating to the pool so that you can enjoy sitting in the water while eating or drinking on a dry countertop. The serving side of the countertop can be a standalone space or connect to a bigger outdoor kitchen.

Swim-up bars allow you to create a leisure setting for eating, swimming and entertaining. Bars are best when combined with shade coverings like pergolas to make the most of the outdoor dining area.
