Pool House Designs That Enhance Your Summer Pool Life

As the sun peeks out from the heavy winter clouds, you can feel the excitement of knowing you’re able to open your swimming pool very soon. If you’ve had your pool for a long time or are looking to build a new one, consider building a state-of-the-art pool house.

Pool houses have many great uses and can be great additions to your summer pool parties. After all, a pool house doesn’t have to be used solely for storage. There are many ways to build a useful and convenient pool house that amplifies your summer swimming pool experience. 

Let’s take a look at some benefits of pool houses and popular pool house designs. 

Benefits of a Pool House

There are several benefits of a pool house. As we said, they're not just for storage but are an excellent way to amplify your summer experience and are easily customizable to suit your needs. 

Some great benefits of pool houses include: 

  • Additional storage for pool accessories

  • A liquor cabinet or outdoor refrigerator for beverages

  • Guest bathrooms

  • Easy transition from indoor to outdoor living

6 Pool House Ideas

If you’re looking for ways to elevate your pool house, Outdoor Innovations has compiled some of our favorite ideas to get your creative juices flowing. 

1. Guest House

If you plan to have guests stay over, consider creating a double-duty pool house with an upstairs guest suite. It’s a great way to ensure you and your guests have a private area to relax after the partying ends. 

2. Cabana-Style

A pool house is also a great way to include a cabana-style space. Using French or folding doors, you can open up your pool house, creating a comfortable, serene space for taking a break from swimming and the sun. Include chairs, couches, pillows, and artwork to elevate your cabana-style pool house into an elegant oasis. 

3. Poolside Bar

If most of your entertaining happens at the poolside, consider using your pool house as a poolside bar. You can add a refrigerator to keep beverages cool and create the perfect summer drink with your professional bar and seating area. You can also include a TV or a speaker system to increase the entertainment factor and give your guests a place to take a break after an epic cannonball!

4. Gym or Workout Space

If you want extra space to work out but aren’t willing to give up space in your garage or a room in the house, consider including a workout room in your pool house. Exercising during the summer means you can work up a sweat and cool off with a quick dive in the pool. 

5. Covered Patio

A pool house can have a covered patio attached, giving you space for lounging and relaxing. Stringing up some lights, adding comfortable chairs and couches, and a Bluetooth speaker system can help create whatever ambiance you desire. Plus, you can use the patio even when it’s raining. 

6. Pool House with Deck

Adding a sleek deck to your pool house can increase your space for relaxing and taking a break. Include comfortable outdoor seating, a table, and some classy lighting to build an impressive deck space beside the pool.
