8 types of swimming pool steps


You need steps to make it easy for you to get in and out of your swimming pool. Fortunately, there are a lot of options for personalising these swimming pool steps so that they are perfectly incorporated into the pool.

Standard straight steps

With a concrete swimming pool, a set of steps is usually built into the pool. The standard model consists of a straight set of steps in one of the corners. The steps are kept to a minimum so as to lose as little swimming space as possible.

Classic round corner steps

Round corner steps are classic swimming pool steps that are also built into one of the corners of the pool.

Roman steps

Roman swimming pool steps used to be really trendy, although the popularity of this model has waned in recent years. Roman steps are built outside the rectangle so as to maximise the swimming space.


Ledge with straight steps

Most of today’s swimming pools are built with a ledge or shallow area. This creates a relaxation zone where you can rest and relax in the sun. A roller blind is then installed under the ledge. To make it easy to get in and out of the pool, a standard, straight set of steps is usually built by this ledge. This makes it even easier to use.

Corner steps

Corner steps with straight treads are a variation of the classic round corner steps. They have a more modern design than the round corner steps.


Steps over the entire width

Apart from a set of corner steps, you can also opt for steps taking up the entire width of the swimming pool. This produces a nice effect. A major disadvantage of this type of steps is that the swimming pool steps take space away from the swimmers. Because of its size, this model is also more expensive than the other models.

Customised swimming pool steps

In addition to the above models, you can also opt to have a customised model built. This makes the swimming pool unique and steps like these are also a real eye-catcher. There are a lot of possibilities in this regard.

Stainless steel steps / ladder on the side

A final possibility is the swimming pool ladder. This is often combined with one of the above-mentioned models. This means you can enter the pool from two places. These ladders are made of stainless steel so they can handle all weather conditions. You can often choose the number of steps on the ladder.
