Not sure what to do with your basement? Consider adding a pool! Many basements are large and open, making them the ideal location for full-size pools. You also have a huge amount of control over the space. Want the ultimate spa environment? Add a hot tub to your pool area. Craving a tropical getaway? You can build one by adding rocks and other decor pieces.

2. Incorporate a pool into your living room

There is nothing that says luxury like a pool in your living room! Not only is it a unique architectural feature, but it also makes it super easy to throw a great pool party! We love the look of a pool that snakes around the room.

Just remember that as fun as living room pools are, it is more difficult to cover them or fence them off. Given this, they are not the best choice for families with children in the home.

3. Add a pool to your front yard

If you do not have space for a backyard pool, add a front yard pool instead! You can use decorative elements to create a pool that doubles as a stylish entrance way. The only problem? You will have plenty of neighbours wanting to invite themselves over!  

4. Install a pool on your roof

With space in Vancouver at a premium, more and more is being done with roofs. People are adding gardens, lounges, and running tracks. Why not add a pool? A rooftop pool not only allows you to enjoy the outdoors but it also provides you with amazing views while you swim!

If you do not have space for these options but still want to add a pool to your home…

5. Consider an indoor spa instead

An indoor spa allows you to enjoy a water feature in your home without taking up much space. If you want to relax, a hot tub may be the best option for you. More interested in cooling off? Opt for a plunge pool instead.
