Cooling off and relaxing in a pool isn’t a luxury reserved only for properties with big wide-open backyards. Even with smaller spaces, you can fit a functional and beautiful pool. It’s just a matter of incorporating smart design.

At Premier Pools, we often build small pools for homes in the inner west suburbs of Sydney, where block sizes tend to be smaller. Below are some examples of elegant small pool designs.


Plunge Pool

A plunge pool is a small, deep pool for soaking and relaxing. They are great because they can easily fit into small spaces. It might not offer the same functionality as a lap pool or a full-sized swimming pool, but plunge pools are equally refreshing during sweltering summer days and are great spaces for relaxing and socialising while you cool down.



A spool is a combination of a spa and pool. Typically, it has built-in seats and jets. It’s a great way to upgrade a plunge pool so it can be used for multiple purposes and be enjoyed in all climates.


Mini Infinity Pool

If your backyard is on a sloping block or a hillside, you can opt for an infinity pool to add style and elegance to your property. This allows you to leverage the slope, create the illusion the pool is bigger than it is and create an ideal space to cool down and enjoy the view.


Long Pool Parallel to Your Home

If you have a narrow block, a long pool is a great option. A small swimming pool can be built to the length of your home (depending on what kind of space is available). The best way to fit a swimmable pool and make the most use of space is to have it installed parallel to your home, right up against your wall and fence-line.


Hidden Pool

One of the best approaches to maximising space with a pool installation is by transforming existing space, such as on your lawn or your balcony into a fully functional pool.
