What to Consider When Choosing Swimming Pool Size, Honolulu, Hawaii

Few backyard installations can provide more fun than a swimming pool. Whether you’re planning pool renovations or a new installation, one of the most important decisions to make is the size of your swim area. By accounting for the following factors, you can ensure your pool will be a perfect fit.

3 Factors to Consider for Pool Size

1. Usage

How the pool will be used as well as how many people will be using it are essential considerations when planning pool renovations or an installation. A pool for swimming laps will have a dramatically different design than one for kids.

Those who enjoy hosting neighborhood get-togethers will likely benefit from a larger pool that can fit more friends. However, if you don’t plan on hosting such events very often, a smaller pool will work.

2. Other Backyard Features

The extent of your property will naturally restrict the size of your pool renovations, but so will other backyard features, like the patio. Other popular backyard entertaining options, like a grilling area, as well as water features to enhance the pool’s beauty may also limit the available swimming space.

3. Pool Shape

The shape of your pool should fit seamlessly with the rest of your backyard features. A circular or kidney bean-shaped pool could be a better fit for backyards with many landscaping features.

If you’re looking at a rectangular pool, it’s typically twice as long as it is wide, so common sizes include 10 by 20 feet or 20 by 40 feet. For families of six or more, a commonly recommended size is 18 by 36 feet or larger.
