As summer approaches, homeowners should get ready to enjoy their backyard pools while they can. A pool house is a great way to keep the clutter that comes with a pool separate from the main living space. Here are a few tips for making the most of the extra room.
Consider a Kitchenette and Bathroom
Adding a kitchenette and bathroom to the pool house after installation will keep the main house dry because guests won’t need to go back and forth to rinse off or get refreshments. A kitchenette can be used to store drinks and small snacks, as well as for preparing food for pool parties. Plus, guests can shower and dry off in a bathroom stocked with fresh towels.
Style It After the Main House
The pool house’s style and proportions should fit in with the main house’s design. Though the pool house doesn’t have to look exactly like the main house, its design should still complement its aesthetic. With our ability to customize the pool houses, Grey’s Woodworks can build to suit your needs for looks as well as function.
Purchase Waterproof Furniture
It’s inevitable that furniture in a pool house will get soaked as people go in and out to dry off, relax, or grab refreshments. Homeowners should consider buying waterproof chairs that won’t get damaged or need to be replaced when they get wet. Our line of Finch outdoor furniture is sure to meet all your needs and be reliable for years to come.
Create Space for Entertainment
Homeowners can turn a pool house into a space for pool parties with the right accommodations. They can fill it with comfortable waterproof chairs, tables, and a mini-bar to host large groups. Also, setting up a sound system, Wi-Fi, and even a TV can add to the pool house’s ambiance and keep guests entertained.
