This project by Elite Pools makes a tight squeeze look easy, with a small backyard transformed by a stunning streamlined pool and Swimple tiles used to maximum effect
This home literally spills outside into the confined outdoor space that has been transformed into a place of paradise by the Elite Pools team. Complete with a glass-fenced outdoor eating area, this backyard is centred around the stunning swimming pool, with just enough room to relax by the water. The gorgeous surrounding landscape and bordering pebbles bring life to the backyard, complementing the solar-heated pool and keeping it as the focal point of the backyard.
The owners wanted the benefits of a swimming pool despite the limited space available in their inner-city home. They asked Elite Pools for a neat, streamlined pool, as well as advice on the paving and surrounding landscape to make the most of the small area.
The rectangular pool design boasts a PCC2000 in-floor cleaning system, Hurlcon Viron variable speed pump and Hurlcon VX7T salt chlorinator for easy pool maintenance. Spa Electrics LED lighting illuminates the beautiful Swimple Blue Green glass tiles and bluestone coping in the evening, making the pool a glowing treasure in the humble backyard at night.
The courtyard pool emulates contemporary, classic design to seamlessly blend with the house aesthetic. The team at Elite Pools ensured they reflected the modern styling of the house by keeping the design simple and streamlined. The pool has complemented and added an extra element of class to the feel of the inner-city home.
