A swimming pool or plunge pool is considered a luxury in India and is hence usually a part of large mansions. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t scale it down to fit into a smaller yard, rooftop or even indoor area. There is a certain charm that a swimming pool adds to a home, whether it’s for cooling off during the summer months or just sitting beside it and sipping a drink.

Take a look at these 15 small pool designs, and you might be tempted to get one for your home.

Set on the rooftop of a modern apartment, this small wading pool is more for fun than serious swimming. It’s a perfect setting for a pool party as you can dip your feet in the water and gaze at the view of the harbour.

​Outdoor art

In an artistic home that is awash with colour, the irregular shaped plunge pool adjoining the veranda is the perfect accessory for outdoor entertainment.

​Exercise arena

A narrow and long lap pool is ideal for a small home that lacks the space for a full-sized version. It works well for a fitness enthusiast who likes to start the day with a few laps in the water.

​Mediterranean splash

This covered pool is too small for exercise, but it’s sheltered from the harsh sunlight, making it a good place to cool off when the temperature rises. The design uses natural light for some lovely play of shadow and reflection from the surrounding walls.

​Roman bath

In a home with a backyard, a small rectangular pool is an easy option for keeping the kids entertained during summer. During the remainder of the year, it can serve as a pretty backdrop for barbeques.

​Subterranean swim

With clever design, you can incorporate a small pool in the basement of a house. While it might not be bright enough for a pool party, by installing of temperature control, you can use it in all seasons.

​Indoor beauty

A temperature controlled pool, with a view of the garden area, adds sparkle to any home. It can work well for swimming as well as lounging indoors away from the natural elements.

​Tropical bliss

In a home by the beach in the tropics, a small outdoor pool on the terrace or garden with a view of the lush greenery or the ocean will make you feel like you are on a permanent vacation.

In a home constructed using natural materials, a simple straight-lined pool with natural stone deck flooring and a skylight, is an option that doesn’t deviate too far from the overall theme.

​Turquoise in the garden

In a modern home with a casual style, a small square pool in the corner of the garden provides a place to cool off under the shade of the trees. At night, when the pool lights turn on, it transforms into a beautiful turquoise outdoor accessory.

​Gift of nature

For a home set in an unspoiled rural area, a small outdoor pool under the tree canopy and enclosed by greenery is the perfect way to relax in the midst of nature.

​Fountain under the stairway

In this home, which has a multi-level terrace, the small pool with a wall fountain lies beneath the iron staircase leading to the higher level.
