A lot of people dream about having their own swimming pool in their backyard. Sadly, not everyone has a backyard spacious enough for a big pool, but that doesn’t mean that the story’s over. There are people who choose to have small swimming pools that are perfect for smaller yards, which means they are able to enjoy all the good sides of having a pool without having to spend a fortune on maintenance.
For those who have a very limited space, spa pools are the best choice, as they fit perfectly in courtyards and patios, or even rooftops. Moreover, spa pools are seen as an extended, outdoor bathtub, and you can use it when you need to relax after a long day, as it has water jets and several seating options. You can use it as you would use a Jacuzzi: to relax before going to bed or after a difficult workout. They are perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine, just like in movies.
Swim spas are a lovely mixture of a spa pool and a swimming pool, and they are perfect for those who have slightly more room and want to use the best of both options. Swim spas are a great solution for the entire family: the parents can relax in the spa with a glass of wine and enjoy a casual talk while keeping an eye on the kids who can play around in the swimming area freely. Everyone’s needs will be taken into account and both parties will be able to enjoy their freedom, as a small spillover bridge separates both sections. And the best thing: you can choose to heat both pool areas separately.
Natural pools can easily fit into any backyard because of their versatility in design, style, and form. Irregular shapes with soft, natural curls and flowing lines are easily adaptable to pretty much any backyard, and the fact that they’re made of natural materials is only a plus. Natural or freeform pools are usually decorated with water lilies, rocks, small islands, and other natural elements, and if you have enough space and will, you can take it a step further and transform your pool area into a small, secret oasis and your own personal piece of heaven.
Plunge pools are perfect for those who have very small backyards but aren’t thinking about getting a spa. Families with small children are especially fond of these pools, as they have even floors and allow children to play without fear and slowly learn to swim. You can add features such as walk-in steps and seats if you have children, or spa jets if you’re looking for a Jacuzzi-like experience.
For those who would like to swim in their pool, but don’t have space for a big one, fiberglass lap pools are the best choice. These pools allow you to improve your swimming technique and practice your swimming strokes without having to leave your home. On the other hand, if you are not an avid swimmer, but would still like to have a pool in your small and narrow backyard, lap pools are the best choice. These pools have a long and narrow rectangular-like shape and they are made of fiberglass, which makes them easy to install, clean, and maintain.
Don’t let limited space stop you from chasing your dreams of having a backyard pool. There are wonderful solutions for smaller spaces available today, and you can choose one of these innovative solutions and implement them into the available space you have. What is more, smaller pools are easier to build and install which means that it will take less time for you to finally have one when you set your mind to it.
