When considering an inground pool for your backyard, your thoughts may immediately turn to grand spaces with lavish amenities. You know, the kind of which luxurious resorts are made.  But that does not necessarily have to be true. In fact, some of the most amazing inground pool projects involve smaller pools in the most ordinary of settings.

Many of our pool designs come in smaller dimensions to accommodate limited backyard settings.

The Esprit

The Esprit offers a perfect fit to narrower backyards. This compact design comes with a full length swim corridor and bench seat, creating maximum impact for the swimming pool area. At 5.70m long, 2.25m wide and 1.35m deep, this enticing flat bottom design can comfortably fit the space limitations that are becoming increasing apparent in Australian backyards.

The Platinum Plunge

We have assembled some small inground pool ideas to delight and inspire you. Your small inground pool can easily become a delightful outdoor living space with just the right touch.

7 Ideas to Enhance Your Small Inground Pool Space

1. Add some gorgeous coping and patio elements.

An easy way to elevate your inground backyard pool is to incorporate some beautiful stone, brick, or even marble to frame your pool. (Hint: just make sure it is slip resistant.)

2. Add a layer of ambient lighting.

If you like to hang out by the pool at night or entertain friends in the evening, some pool landscape lighting provides an elegant and special touch. When strategically placed, pool landscape lighting can take your backyard pool to an entirely new level.

3. Fire it up.

Who doesn’t love a poolside fire pit? After a late-night swim, have you ever wanted to warm up and get cozy? A fire pit is the ideal choice in this regard. Make your backyard a photo-worthy area with stunning mood lighting that inspires your creativity.

4. Backyard Sports.

If you enjoy playing a few games in the pool, a Volleyball Net may just be the answer. Install one just in the middle of the pool and make the pool your court. Just have fun with it. We won’t keep score!

5. Add some plants around the perimeter of your inground pool.

Sure, you could just have a concrete patio surrounding your pool, but why not jazz things up a bit with some poolside landscaping? Opt for some strategically placed planters along a retaining wall. You may also want to add a rock garden with a few planters to one side of the pool.

6. Jets and Underwater Bubblers.

A few jets added to your pool can take your inground swimming pool experience up a notch. With a spa-like touch, you can enjoy a relaxing life of leisure at any time. For a fun in-pool fountain, a bubbler (or two!) can be a great addition.

7. Add In an Automatic Pool Cover

And when it is time to turn out the lights and go to bed, don’t forget an automatic pool cover to protect your inground pool.  For added safety, security, and strength, a pool cover is the way to go.

In conclusion, no matter what options you choose, don’t be afraid to express yourself and indulge a bit of imagination. Your small inground backyard pool can have a significant and lasting impact for years to come. Making lasting memories is one of the best add-ons you can have.
