Pool House Interior Design Ideas

A pool adds relaxation and glamor to your home. A great spot for family and friend summer gatherings, a refreshing pool deserves a functional and beautiful pool house. Pool houses can vary from elegant guest houses to storage units for pool necessities. Regardless of what purpose your pool house serves and what vision you have, we have some great ideas to elevate your pool area with a pool house that serves your lifestyle best.

A Small Pool House

If your backyard is relatively small, then a small pool house that stores the pool pump and still allows for storage and seating is the way to go. This can still be a stylish and relaxing lounge area that is harmonious with the rest of your property.

This kind of pool house doesn’t require electricity or plumbing for the building, but you can certainly opt for it allowing for more flexibility in the space. The ultimate purpose of a smaller pool house is to provide storage, shelter, and comfort for lazy days you want to read by the pool but stay out of the sun or rain.

A Luxurious Guest House

If you love to host and frequently have guests in your home, then a pool house that welcomes guests to stay and relax is perfect. With electricity, plumbing, a kitchen, sleeping arrangements, and living spaces that overlook the pool and garden, this is a luxurious kind of pool house.

Install folding or sliding doors that allow easy access to the patio and pool. Your guests will feel like they are on vacation with this getaway-like layout.

An Entertainment-Centered Pool House

Perfect for hosting gatherings, an entertainment-centered pool house can open out into an extra lounge area that allows for entertaining guests. Installing a fully functional outdoor kitchen, a bar, a fire pit, and air conditioning systems will make this space comfortable to use all year. Even if it is too cold to swim, an entertainment-centered pool house allows you to enjoy your backyard. Equipped with a sound system, this would also be a great area to host parties and larger gatherings.

A Garden-Focused Pool House

Surround your pool area with nature and a well-maintained garden. Whether the focus is on florals, plants, or vegetables and herbs, incorporating nature will make your pool feel like an oasis. Then, design the pool house that is one with nature. A pool house that blends seamlessly into the landscape makes the garden and pool the feature instead.

A Game And Hobby Pool House

Use this type of pool house to keep games, ping pong tables, hobby supplies, and a projector for movies by the pool. This house is great for the family that loves to play. With a view of the outdoors and fewer distractions, quality time will feel more intentional.
