We have always believed that size is indeed relative, and what might be a lavish, generous home for some might seem like a modest, mundane affair to others. A backyard swimming pool is not too different in this regard, as those who actually do not have one often crave at least a small pool that allows them to cool off on a hot summer day. Adding a petite pool to your small backyard need not be a challenging and complex affair, and the result will often leave you amazed, as you will discover a brand new hangout just a few steps away from your living room!
With concepts such as ‘staycation’ becoming even more popular in recent times, the small pool has definitely made its way into more urban backyards. All you need is a hint of ingenuity, smart planning and just enough space to squeeze in a small pool. From health and fitness to rest and recreation, you will soon find that this tiny wonder will change your entire life.
Clean and Contemporary
Since most modern homes adopt a simple, clean design with straight lines and cubic forms ruling the interior, the landscape around your house should be no different. Let the small pool seem like an extension of the home and shape a lovely deck that acts as a transitional zone between the edifice and the pool. Even though you might not be swimming away in a giant lap pool, the classic rectangular design still gives you the satisfaction of having a beautiful pool in the backyard, even if it is far smaller in dimensions. The rectangular, in-ground pool is a classic that never fails, and you can start with one that is as small as 9 by 18 feet.
