Swimming Pool Enclosure Ideas

There’s no better investment in leisure than the one made in an open-air swimming pool! If you’re a water person, you already know it’s true! These pools are always in use no matter where you are and what time of the year. In the summers, a cool dip under the sun is the best way to freshen you up, and in the winters, enjoying warm water is simply therapeutic if nothing else.

So, why don’t people build outdoor swimming pools more often? Well, the reason is pretty straightforward – open-air pools are hard to maintain. But, nobody said anything good  in life is free, did they? 

And so, first things first! What makes a nice open-air swimming pool enclosure? .

What are Swimming Pool Enclosures?

Pool enclosures are precisely what they advertise – a cage that encases your pool to protect it from the weather, pollutants, or anything else that might make your pool day problematic.

What Are Some Great Ideas For Enclosures?

Since you want to cover up that beautiful pool of yours, you need something both practical and pretty. 

The Architecture

  • Retractable enclosures that can be opened and closed to add a special element to the architecture.
  • Using domed, arc, or sloping roofs to capture different kinds of styles.
  • Having low pool covers for minimum coverage or high ones for a more open feeling.

The Décor:

  • Inclusion of plants around the pool to give it a more natural feeling.
  • Adding water fountains and waterfalls as a way of spicing up the atmosphere.
  • Experimenting with different kinds of lightings, perhaps fashioned after the stars, for a more magical night swimming experience.

Interesting ideas, don’t you think? By the time you’re done building your enclosure, you’ll be the envy of your neighborhood! Building a fun enclosure will be amazing but be careful about the clutter. Building new architecture is often difficult, time-consuming, and messy.
