Homify logo Homify 10/8/2017 Lexi Hughes

Who says that you need a lot of space, and a big budget to create your dream pool? Even on a few square meters and with a limited budget, you can create a great a mini pool at home. From a mini pool in a garden, or a mini pool for your balcony, we have six very different mini-pools that you'll actually want to enjoy.

Dive in with us into the wonderful world of tiny pools. Let's take a look! 

1. Luxurious mini pools

Even small pools can offer a lot of luxury, like this example. The water basin is located on a slightly elevated platform in the garden, which can be used as a terrace. At the edge of the pool is a cushioned seat that invites you to sunbathe, but also to enjoy an aperitif before dinner with your feet in the water. And when it gets dark, a spectacular lighting creates a moody atmosphere in and around the pool. The color scheme can be adapted individually according to the mood, while a sophisticated heating system ensures that a pleasant water temperature prevails throughout the year.

2. Flexible mini pools

Mobile pools are a great option for those who have a limited budget and who want to use the cool water only during the summer months. Quick Up Pools offer a cooler option for the whole family on hot days, and is convenient to purchase and quickly and easy to set up. Our tip: Ensure that the pool, mini in size, protects bathers from injury by being setup on a hard surface surrounded by the lawn.

3. Mini pool with a view

Our experts from design garden have a mini pool which can be used all year round. In the summer, the pool provides cool, refreshing water and in the winter can be converted into a spa. When it gets dark, an impressive LED lighting immerses the basin and the surroundings into a moody sea of lights. And whoever thinks the movement is too short for this small pool is wrong: the water depth of 1.35 m is perfect for a round of water gymnastics.

4. Mini pool with solar panels

This mini-pool is located in the southern Californian Mojave Desert and offers a warm welcome and a chance to get rid of desert dust and mud. The pool is a project of our expert Alfredo Barsuglia, who brought the minimalist work of art into co-operation with the MAK Center for Art and Architecture. The special thing about this mini pool is that everyone is invited to use the cool water in this unusual place and can be part of the extraordinary art project!

5. Mini pool in a terrace
