Pools

Cool Off Daily at Your Own Private Resort With a Relaxing Backyard Pool

Living in the Sun Belt has the benefits of pleasant year-round weather and plenty of time to spend outdoors enjoying it, but Summers can be scorching. Cool off daily at your own private resort with a relaxing backyard pool. Pools are an amenity that can be enjoyed throughout the country, but those in the Southern states will see the most use out of their pools due to an extended warm season.

Pools can be as varied as the homes they accompany and often have a unique style to complement the home; landscaping will further define a pool’s style. A Mediterranean home may have a curved pool surrounded by palm trees and a cascading waterfall. More contemporary or modern homes may make use of clean lines with a simple rectangular pool, possibly with a painted bottom to create allure. Florida homes often have a pool and patio with a permanent cover that keeps out insects and leaves.

A pool is just a pool without an accompanying patio to relax when out of the water. Design for an outdoor kitchen, full loggia and warming fireplace for cool nights. Extend the swimming season with a hot tub or a permanent enclosure that keeps temperatures warmer. All of these combined elements will make entertaining easy, especially for children during those long, lazy days of Summer.

If your budget will allow, build a pool house that complements the style of the main home. A separate building for showering and storing pool supplies will keep the house clean and your hardwood floors dry. The pool house can be as simple or elaborate as you wish, even featuring a small kitchen and guest house. Pools are sometimes a luxury, but those who live in sub-tropical climates know that they are often a necessity.
