A pool house is a perfectly practical luxury, ideal for entertaining guests and for keeping the main house clean and dry during pool parties. An outdoor living space with a pool can integrate a pool house in imaginative ways that will enhance your home, pool, landscaping, and natural surroundings.
Pool house designs vary dramatically from the very simple to the stunningly elaborate. The first decision in planning is considering how you will most often use the space. A pool house used mainly for adult parties will need a different design than one used mainly for groups of young kids.
While you don’t want a pool house design that’s a miniature version of your home, the overall visuals should be thoughtfully integrated so it looks like it belongs in your space. Consider the views from every angle – from the home to the pool house, from the pool house to the pool and surrounding environment. If your outdoor area includes trees near the pool, the pool house design should be aligned with the landscaping, considering sun and shade.
Allow space for relaxing indoors and in the open air. An outdoor fireplace is a wonderful addition if you like to entertain at night. Inside, remember to include water-safe furniture so guests feel comfortable sitting directly from the pool. A basic pool house interior should include private changing areas and storage for towels, along with a small bathroom and a place to shower. More luxurious versions can include a kitchen, a bar, music and tv.
