You are ready to take the plunge and add a gorgeous new pool to your backyard. Now it’s time to figure out which size is right for your swimming goals. Builders can build to your specifications, and homeowners usually consider their budget, family size, entertaining plans (swim parties!), current space needs (patio or yard considerations), and personal preferences.
A common rectangular pool might be 10 by 20 feet in a smaller yard, and up to 20 by 40 feet on a larger property. Oval or specialty-shaped pools are an option, as well. Do you want to keep some grassy lawn nearby for pets or aesthetics? Do you want to add lounge or patio areas? Remember: a pool deck should be large enough to accommodate furniture that has at least 30 inches or more of cushion room from the edge of the pool, and walking paths should be at least 3 feet wide.
Plot out your options, take a look at catalogs and friends’ pool areas, and talk to the experts at Klear Pools swimming pool company for all the best ideas.
