What Size of Swimming Pool is Best for Your Home

What Size of Swimming Pool is Best for Your Home

It is common to wonder what size of swimming pool is best for your property to make the most of the space. Obviously it is an important decision and one that is worth seriously considering from all angles. 

There are a number of considerations when deciding on the size of your swimming pool. Here are some that we think are the most important:

What will be the main use of your swimming pool? 

If you are looking to get a pool installed in order to exercise then it needs to be sufficiently long to swim decent lengths. You will want to be able to swim an adequate amount without having to turn around too frequently. A good length to exercise in would be 10 metres and above. 

If however the pool is mainly for relaxing and for your children to play in, then size will be less important. Children will find a way to make good use out of pools of any size. 

How much space do you have on your property? 

Of course perhaps the biggest consideration is the size of your property and how much space you have available for a pool. Naturally most people would like a large pool on their property, but if your garden is not big enough it can be tricky. 

Furthermore you might not want the pool to take up the majority of space in your garden. So it is important to take into account the size of the pool you can comfortably accommodate in your garden, and how much space you would like to remain for other uses. 

How would you like to use the surrounding area?

A swimming pool can be great for entertaining friends and family and other guests to your home. When installing a pool you also need to consider the area around it and how to make the most of it.

Many pool owners like to have a bbq or outdoor kitchen by their pool so they can entertain guests. So when it comes to planning the size of your pool, take consideration of what furniture or other equipment you will have around it.
