A small backyard doesn’t mean you can’t transform it into an awesome private oasis. One of the best things that you can have for your small backyard is a small contemporary swimming pool.
The first reason why it is recommended to have a small swimming pool is you will have more space in your backyard for other things such as an outdoor seating area and a fire pit.
A small swimming pool also means you can save on building costs and treatment costs. With this pool, you can have a higher level of intimacy than with a large pool. A small pool is perfect for relaxation and lounging with family and friends.
If you are interested to have one, hope our small contemporary swimming pool designs below can help you to turn your backyard into a private oasis.
