Find time - and space - in your home to create a little luxury - okay, a lot of luxury - with your own spa and swimming pool

For many it’s the ultimate home accessory - and whether your desire is an infinity pool near the terrace, a cedar hot tub on the deck or a home spa, it has never been easier to add your favoured water feature to your home.

The pool experts at Harris Pools suggest dipping your toes with a ‘splasher’ pool before building a more permanent water feature. Most splasher pools can be up and running within a matter of days, perfect for long summer holidays or last minute family get-togethers, and can be fitted by competent DIY-ers, with ladders and heaters added if wanted. You can also go for above-ground swimming pools - priced from a few hundred to a few thousand pounds, these can also be fitted quickly and taken away.

Hot tubs are a great option for a spot of relaxation at any time of year. They are easy to install, available in a wide range of prices, sizes and designs to suit your garden. They work best combined with a great view - whether surrounded by lush landscaping or far reaching views of the sea.

More and more companies are also offering sauna and steam rooms for the home: we are saving up for the Inipi B compact sauna for one which can be squeezed into a few metres - and all for well under £10,000 (plus fitting).
