There is no better way to relax at the end of the day or get the most out of a day off or a week-long vacation on a warm summer day than to enjoy a refreshing pool. It's even better when the pool in question is on our own property. Not everyone has a space big enough to house a monster pool, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy one at all.

Today on homify, we have a list of 10 small, but gorgeous pools that are perfect for small homes. Each design requires minimum space, but provides top-of-the-line comfort and satisfaction. So if you want inspiration for that pool you've always dreamt of, keep scrolling!

1. Take advantage of corners

This small, fan-shaped pool takes full advantage of one corner of the patio, with a small covered stone bucket where the mechanical equipment that runs the pool is located. A simple, but very attractive solution.

2. Work with what you got

You have to adapt to the available space your property has, which can result in the pool having shallow depth, but this does not mean that it is less fun or less enjoyable than a deeper one. In fact, you might even find it more enjoyable to bask in the shallow waters while sunbathing.

3. On the surface

These kinds of pools allow you to build them without having to dig through your ground. They also create fancy steps and cool places to sit so you can enjoy a fun-filled afternoon by the cool water with friends and family.

4. A mixture of textures

Although its size is not incredibly large, this pool creates a great visual impact thanks to the combination of materials in its design: slate, wood, plant life, and the brilliant blue of the water combine to form a really attractive visual composition. To pull of something this intricate, best leave it to the professionals.

5. Reflecting beautiful blue skies

A totally white pool lets the water easily reflect the beautiful blue sky, as well as any other element that is around it.

6. Elegance in minimal space

The simple design of this pool makes it stand out amongst the surrounding greenery, gives it great elegance, and offers these residents two areas to enjoy this beautiful patio–one where the chairs are, naturally, and the other in the small sequestered area of the pool by the vegetation in back.

7. Your own personal masseuse

Take advantage of your small pool and add in a few jet streams for the ultimate luxury. Who needs to go to the massage parlour when you have your own personal masseuse right in your back yard? 

8. Stone coating

The gorgeous stone coating around the walls of this pool creates a rustic and warm atmosphere and allows the pool to blend in with its surroundings effortlessly. 

9. A level for all

Some small pools also have different levels of depth, which allow them to be enjoyed by both children and adults. Now you and your friends can swim in the deep end and not have to worry about any little ones in the shallow end.

10. For every taste

This last pool incorporates a little bit from each previous pool we saw. Pure, straight lines, different depths, and curved features, this small pool offers something for every taste. And here's a new idea–place your lawn chairs in the shallow end and really get that beach experience!
