Designing your dream pool house: 4 top tips

A pool house is more than just a pool house. It’s an entertainment area and it can feature as an outdoor kitchen with the right installations. Of course, if you are going to go all out on your pool house design, you’ll need to consider more from the start than just where to build it.  From the start, pool house design should include things cabinetry for storage, as well as the materials you will need. Following are some top tips for designing your dream pool house:

Choosing the Perfect Location for Your Pool House

Tip no. 1: Pool house designs should start with choosing an area that is open, sunny, and protected from wind.

The location and aspect of your dream pool house are crucial in pool house design. Outdoor entertainment areas with kitchenettes and storage mean you can build your pool house further from your main house. Consider privacy when choosing the location of your pool house if it also includes outdoor living facilities. However, every pool house design and location consideration should center around the sun, and wind.

Your pool house (and pool) should be situated to make the most of sunshine hours. Ideally, the open patio part of your pool house should be protected from prevailing winds, or the design should incorporate wind protection.

If you are designing your pool house to be built around an existing pool, consider the wind coming off the pool as moisture will affect installations, appliances, and furnishings.  If you are incorporating a pool house design along with a swimming pool design, pick the sunniest spot in your garden, and position the pool house to protect the pool from wind.

Designing for Functionality and Style 

Tip no. 2: Choose materials and installations that have both functional and aesthetic value for your pool house designs.

Your pool house design should focus on value above all: the value that it adds to your lifestyle and your property. For this reason, you should always consider the aesthetic and architectural value of your pool house in relation to your main house and the overall look of your property. 

It is not only the architecture that needs to look good. You also need to consider what you put in your pool house. Installations, materials and furnishings need to be high quality and durable in pool house conditions. Stylish bespoke cabinetry is one of the installations that can add considerable functional and aesthetic value to your pool house. 

Maximizing Space with Cabinetry 

Tip no. 3: Pool house designs should maximize floor and storage space with innovative cabinetry installations.

The right cabinetry will not only look good in your luxury pool house. Cabinetry can also help you make the most of limited space. The more you put in your pool house, the more you will need to consider optimal use of space in your pool house design.

Storage capacity is especially when you start adding facilities. Outdoor barbecues, kitchenettes, and pool house living areas all come with things that need to be packed away neatly and out of sight. Wall-to-wall cabinetry and floor-to-ceiling cabinetry are among a huge range of functional and stylish-looking storage solutions that can add value, looks, and space to your pool house.
