A pool house serves as the perfect summer retreat, offering a cozy spot for relaxation, entertainment, and changing rooms adjacent to your pool. However, a well-designed pool house can serve multiple purposes beyond the swimming season. At Arizona Garage Builders, we are experts in crafting bespoke pool houses that cater to your unique needs. Here are some important features to consider when planning your pool house.
1. Adequate Space Planning:
Start by defining the purpose of your pool house. Will it be a simple changing room, an outdoor kitchen, a guest house, or a combination? Once you determine its function, you can plan a layout that suits your needs, with distinct zones for different activities.
2. Comfortable Changing and Bathroom Facilities:
To keep the main house dry and free of pool water, a pool house should ideally include a bathroom and changing area. This provides convenience for swimmers and also makes the pool house a potential guest suite.
3. Kitchen or Bar Area:
For those who love entertaining, a kitchen or bar area can be a great addition. This makes poolside dining and summer barbecues a breeze. Remember to include a mini-fridge for beverages and plenty of counter space.
4. Indoor-Outdoor Flow:
Maximize the indoor-outdoor connection with large sliding doors, a covered patio, or an outdoor shower. This can make the transition from pool to indoor spaces seamless and extends your living space.
5. Climate Control:
In Arizona, keeping cool is a priority. Ensure your pool house is well insulated and includes air conditioning or ceiling fans. This will ensure the space remains comfortable even during the hottest summer days.
6. Durable, Water-Resistant Materials:
With its proximity to water and likely high-traffic nature, choose durable, water-resistant materials for flooring, furnishings, and finishes. Tiles, sealed concrete, and synthetic fabrics are excellent choices that resist damage from wet swimwear and can be easily cleaned.
7. Storage Solutions:
Storage is a practical consideration in a pool house. You’ll need a place to keep pool toys, extra towels, life jackets, and pool cleaning supplies. Custom cabinets, shelves, and hooks can keep everything organized and easy to access.
8. Personal Touches:
Make the pool house a cozy retreat with personal touches. Consider comfortable seating, a sound system for your favorite music, and stylish lighting for evening pool parties.
