Unlocking The Potential Of Small Spaces: 3 Swimming Pool Tips For Urban Dwellers

Jose Wheeler

As a city dweller, owning a swimming pool may seem like an unattainable luxury due to space constraints. However, with the right approach and design, even the smallest of outdoor areas can be transformed into a backyard oasis. Don't give up faith just because it seems a little far-fetched—with a good swimming pool builder as your partner and an out-of-the-box approach, you can still make quite an impressive pool for you and your loved ones. Here are three tips to help you get started in designing a pool that fits your more restricted spatial requirements.

What Is The Purpose Of This Particular Pool?

Before embarking on any pool construction project, it is essential to consider the primary purpose of the pool. Will it be used for exercise, relaxation, or entertaining guests? By identifying the pool's primary function, you can determine the ideal shape, size, and features to meet your needs and fit your space. With more space, you could perhaps build a pool that accommodates a whole selection of different purposes, but with more constricted requirements, you need to be as specific as possible. If you want a social environment to have fun in, which is most people's primary requirement for a pool, then focus entirely on that.

Consider Unusual Shapes That Maximize Your Space

The pool design will significantly impact the overall aesthetics and functionality of the pool. For small spaces, consider a geometric shape, such as a rectangle or square, as they are more space-efficient. You can also opt for a custom design that maximizes the available space, such as a pool that doubles as a water feature so it looks less out of place when it is not in use. Try to avoid shapes with too many curves or too many edges, as this will minimize your available room around the pool and make it feel more cramped. 

Incorporate A Lot Of Smart Pool Features

In a small space, every inch counts, and incorporating smart pool features can help maximize the available space. Consider features such as built-in seating, a shallow sun shelf, or a swim jet system. These features not only add to the functionality of the pool but also enhance its overall aesthetic appeal. The best thing you can do is talk to a swimming pool builder who specializes in urban pool design and construction. The smaller the space then the bigger the challenge, but for many pool builders that is part of the appeal, so don't give up hope!

About Me
Technology Makes Landscaping Easier Than Ever

When I was young, I loved helping my mother in the garden. Our yard was filled with plants and flowers that she kept in immaculate condition. Once I was an adult and bought my first home, I learned that there was much more to landscaping a yard than I ever imagined! After a little trial and error planting a few flowers in my yard that died quickly, I realized the technology that is available to aspiring gardeners makes trial and error a thing of the past. After I found out what my "hardiness zone" was, I realized I was planting flowers made for much cooler climates, and I played around with software that let me design my yard very easily! I learned a lot throughout the experience, so I thought I would share my tips with everyone who needs them. Come back often to check out my new tips!
