pool house ideas

If you’re considering building a pool house, chances are you’re thinking of a closed structure to store your garden furniture and swimming gear. But just think of the endless possibilities you create for yourself by installing a louvered canopy near your pool instead! The biggest advantage of all? You get to control the amount of sunlight that shines through the roof. When it gets too hot, you can instantly close the louvers and have all the shade you need. Feeling a bit chilly? Simply tilt the louvers and enjoy the sunlight coming through. And how about organising a barbecue under the canopy after a lovely afternoon swim? We’ve got inspiration aplenty for you!

A pool house for storage – or relaxation?

In the past, pool houses were mostly used as a storage and/or changing area, yet today there is so much more you can do with the space. A louvered canopy serving as a pool house can be an ideal lounge area, for instance, perfect for pool-side get-togethers, sunbathing or reading a book in the shade after your morning swim. Spend your time relaxing, having a meal with friends, chatting by the pool until the wee hours … and simply enjoy life!

What you need to know before building a pool house

Next to deciding on a style for your pool house, there are some other important factors to take into account before you start building:

  • Opt for quality materials that are weather-proof, i.e. will not rust or wear, and require little maintenance.
  • Whether traditional and romantic or sleek and modern, it goes without saying that the style of your pool house should match the design of your swimming pool. Don’t lose sight of the bigger picture either: your home and your patio tiles deserve to shine as well.
  • Mind the orientation: you want to get as much direct sunlight (and as little wind) as possible, preferably without the neighbours looking in.
  • Make sure the canopy has a water-proof roof and comes with side panels that will protect you against the wind.
  • Consider adding some extras to take your pool house to a higher level, such as integrated heating, lighting or a sound system.
