Improving Your Poolside Experience!

Poolside ExperienceWhen you’ve got the backyard in-ground pool, you may think you’re good to go. After all, it’s a pool in your yard; is that not the ideal? Well, it’s a good first step, but have you considered how to make your pool experiences better?

Think about, for example, hosting a backyard party so your friends can enjoy your pool. Everyone comes and suddenly your house becomes a revolving door of people suddenly needing to change in and out of pool attire, use the restroom, and acquire food. You won’t want to even think about how long it will take to clean up your house afterward.

The solution is to investigate pool houses and cabanas. While the functions of a pool cabana varies, the main goal is to decrease the amount of traffic through your home. Depending on how much money and effort you want to put into outdoor pool cabanas, the opportunities are endless.


Even the most basic of pool pavillions provide a shaded area for you and your party guests to hang out under. Depending on the size, it can be anywhere from four to eight supports, upon which rests a roof. The floor is often cement or brick, although you can work with the aesthetics of your pool to get the right look. With pool houses and cabanas, there is often walls, allowing for some kind of temperature control.

Food and Drink

Outdoor pool cabanas are often equipped with a bar and food serving area. While the methods and styles will greatly range depending on your needs, they can even be set up with a little kitchen for on-the-spot food preparation and storage. Some have stools that can be set on one side for party guests to relax on while enjoying a martini.

Changing Area

With larger poolside houses and cabanas, there can be specific changing rooms so that your guests can easily switch between their swimming attire and their clothes. Not only does this cut down on the water and dirt being tracked through your house, but it prevents your guests from feeling like they’re intruding upon your home.


For any party of any length, and especially those where alcohol is featured, guests will be wanting to stop by the, ahem, facilities to relieve themselves. Pool cabanas with a restroom gives them a close location for the deed without having to make a special trek into your house.

There are a whole mess of options for any kind of pool pavillion or house. Figuring out what types of features you want will help you determine your options.
