1. Decide on the size

Your pool needs to fit the size of your home, especially if your backyard is small and simple. Opt for a less is more approach to decor and design an amazing pool that fits the needs of your family and friends. But, consider a terrace area too!

2. Assess the ground

You may need to check the quality of your grounds before beginning with the building. Your construction team needs to dig a hole in the ground before they begin with the pool, it may therefore be worthwhile to consult a professional in order to get the best option for your living space.

3. Budgetary

As a homeowner you should have some idea on what your budget is, and this will ultimately help you with the type of pool and extras you can incorporate. Whether it's a simple and affordable fibreglass or imported ceramics for that ultimately Mediterranean and chic design.

4. All the seating

While the pool area requires its own awesome decor and design, the seating space at the poolside shouldn't be neglected. Consider plenty of seating so all your guests will be accommodated throughout the day.
