Some in-ground pool step ideas include curving steps that mimic the look of waves, simple long steps that run the length of a rectangular pool and small corner steps. In-ground steps can also be inlaid with decorative tile.
Instead of the traditional corner or front steps built into a rectangular in-ground pool, homeowners can opt for a modern look with steps parallel to the side of the pool. For easy access, homeowners can opt instead for two sets of steps on either side of the pool with a narrow bench step connecting to the areas. Stairs for circular and asymmetrical pools can vary from simple semicircle stairs to free-form shapes.
