Small Pools: Turn Your Backyard into a Relaxing Retreat

Undoubtedly, adding any kind of pool to your backyard can turn the outdoor space into a dreamy retreat where to relax with family and friends.

Dreamy hideaway

You are dreaming of having a pool in your backyard, but you think the space is too small?

This isn’t an issue anymore.

Fortunately, small pools have definitely made their way into more urban backyards.

All you need is smart planning and just enough space to squeeze in a small pool.

And voilà, from rest to recreation to pool parties, you will soon find that this tiny wonder will change your entire life.

1. Clean and Contemporary

 

Appeal and personality

 

Make the pool a natural extension of your indoor space. As contemporary homes are of simple, clean design and cubic forms, opt for a rectangular, in-ground pool.

This classic design will give you the satisfaction of having a beautiful pool in the backyard, even if it is far smaller in dimensions. To add to its aesthetic appeal, you can incorporate a water feature, as shown in the picture above.

Stunning backyard!

 

However, if you want to go beyond the classic rectangular pool, you have an array of options.

Circular pools, semi-circular, or irregular-shaped designs with cool twists and turns are becoming more and more popular. In the picture above, a small pool with Jacuzzi steals the show in this backyard. Photo: Credit

3. Think Depth!

 

Fabulous!

 

If your backyard is really too small, then opt for a plunge pool. Plunge pools require little square footage and rely more on depth than on width and length.

Designers have come up with options to  easily add a plunge pool to the backyard without compromising on deck area.

Hesitating what to choose – Jacuzzi or a plunge pool? The choice is yours. However, consider that plunge pools are far more easy to maintain. In the picture above, a plunge pool is the focal point in this really small outdoor space. Photo: Credit

 

4. Holiday at Home

 

What a backyard!

 

As the pool doesn’t stand in isolation, focus on how the pool fits into your overall lifestyle and make sure that it matches the style of your home. Photo: Credit
