Just because you have a small space doesn't mean you shouldn't have a beautiful swimming pool!

In fact, today at homify, we are going to show you 12 beautiful pools. Every single one of them will prove to you just what is possible when it comes to a small space!

As we explore the ins and outs of these gorgeous little designs, you may find you'll become rather inspired. Because if you have even the smallest of space available, you should use it for a swimming pool! It's a wonderful focal point for the outdoor area and in summer, it's a great way to cool down and relax. 

Your kids, family and friends will also thank you forever…

1. Rectangle

This is a simple shape that works well in most small gardens. It also suits any style of home or garden.

Always remember, clean lines are timeless!

2. Deep

If you can't make your pool too big, make sure it has a section that's nice and deep. That way you can still experience a nice cool dip!

3. Creative

With a few decorative touches around your swimming pool, you can create an exotic haven. Size doesn't count!

5. Along the edge of the property

Tuck your swimming pool into the perimetre of your property for a functional and aesthetically appealing design.

6. Between the garden and the terrace

When in doubt, make sure the swimming pool still allows for enough garden space and terrace space.

7. In the corner

Install your swimming pool right in the corner of the property and you'll have panoramic views of the surrounds while you swim!

8. Sink it into the terrace

Because how much terrace space do you actually need?

9. If you need more terrace space…

Make the pool even smaller! Add a functional pergola for shelter and your swimming pool will be shady and cool!

10. Round with rocks

Have you ever seen a swimming pool with such rustic charm?

11. Add a small fountain to your small pool

You'll barely notice how small it is!

12. Understated and classic
