The growing trend throughout Australia is for house sizes to grow larger and larger. Everybody is looking for more floor space and rooms in their homes. A bigger home can be great, but it doesn’t come without its cost. Real estate is still a finite resource, so as internal house sizes increase to give us more space to live in, we sacrifice on backyard exterior space. For many of us, that may not seem like much of a problem, but for those that want to one day own their own swimming pool, a smaller backyard may seem like a major issue.
Small-sized swimming pools are the perfect solution to the new trend of larger homes and smaller backyards. They also have their benefits when it comes to larger backyards as well; not everybody wants their swimming pool to occupy the entire space in their yard. Let’s look a bit more at small swimming pools, their benefits, and the options available.
What is a Small Swimming Pool?
A small swimming pool is generally regarded as any swimming pool that has an area smaller than 10m². Small swimming pools offer all the same features, quality, and style as larger models, but are just designed to fit into smaller spaces. Some models of small-sized swimming pools are identical to their larger counterparts, just scaled down, but some specific models are uniquely designed to fit into small spaces. Plunge pools, lap pools, and spa pools are all generally designed to be smaller than traditional swimming pools.
Identifying the Right Pool Choice
Identifying the best swimming pool is one of the most important decisions you could make. A swimming pool is a large investment, and with proper maintenance will be something you and your family can enjoy for years to come. Making a rushed and hasty choice is not easy to fix, so it’s best to take your time and evaluate all the options. The right swimming pool for your backyard will depend on a few factors. The first step in identifying the right choice is to see what options you have available; a Narellan Pools builder will be able to help here, coming to your property to make an assessment. The other factors that go into finding the right pool for you are how big your budget is and what you intend to use the pool for. If you want a small pool that you can still swim in, for example, consider a lap pool, whereas if you just want somewhere to relax a spa or plunge pool might be the better choice.
Bigger Isn’t Always Better
Small swimming pools aren’t just the best choice for those with limited space in their backyard. They can also be an excellent choice for those with ample backyard space, but who simply don’t require a larger swimming pool. A small swimming pool situated in a large backyard leaves plenty of room for other activity-specific areas, i.e. an outdoor kitchen or bar area, and landscaping options. Another major benefit to selecting a small pool, even when your backyard can handle something bigger, is that you will save considerable money on upkeep and maintenance as smaller pools naturally cost less money to operate with a smaller water volume.
