Deep Dive into Pool Houses
It’s no secret that people are drawn to swimming pools, regardless of whether they’re interested in swimming -- or even putting on a swimsuit. It must be the beauty of the water, the fresh air, and the sunshine that turns the entire space surrounding your swimming pool into prime real estate for family barbecues, weekend get-togethers, and getting kids and their friends out of the house.
For pool owners looking to expand the home and increase the versatility of the backyard, a pool house provides the space to spend more time around a swimming pool, turning the backyard into a prized aquatic oasis.
After investing in a swimming pool, a pool house may seem like an unnecessary extra. What most people don’t take into account, however, is that a pool house is not just a part of the pool – it is an additional feature of the home and it comes with a host of benefits. Their function ranges from equipment storage to changing room to exercise area to multi-functional entertainment hub and relaxation zone.
If you have the space and the budget, a pool house with a bedroom and bathroom is a very attractive guest house option. Some are even used as teen rooms or game rooms. No matter their function, their smaller scale offers the opportunity to go for a luxurious design. Take a look at some of these adorable, high-style abodes:
Functional yet fabulous, aren’t they?
I'll continue to add more gorgeous examples of pool houses on my Pinterest page. I hope you’re getting some relaxation and family time by the pool this summer. It’s such a wonderful time of year to soak up the sun and get restored.
