Why go to a crowded resort when you can have a luxurious pool and spa experience right at your home? If you are thinking of designing the ultimate backyard oasis, you probably know that this is not a small investment. For this reason, homeowners are increasingly designing their luxury swimming pools all year round. Let’s talk about planning a backyard retreat that you can enjoy 365 days a year.
Heated pools and spas
While keeping the pool at a comfortable temperature can be expensive in the cooler months, you don’t have to pay the cost of opening and closing your pool through a professional. There’s also the allure to look out the window in winter to see teal water instead of the drab pool cover.
Now imagine the magical feeling of relaxing in the water while snowflakes gently fall from the sky. In many luxury swimming pools, this is not just a dream. There are many depending on the size of your pool and / or spa Pool heater options;; Natural gas heating, propane heating and electric heat pumps, to name a few. In addition, a solar cover that stays attached when the pool is not in use can help the water store heat and absorb the warmth of the winter sun.
Even if you don’t want to heat the entire pool and spa to a comfortable swimming temperature, you can keep the pool water above freezing to keep it open and turn the spa on when you’re ready to take a dip.
Live luxury outdoors
Extend your winter fun beyond the water by setting up your outdoor living area for all seasons. If the budget allows, a heated cabana just steps from the pool will get you out of the cold quickly after a swim. A luxury cabana can be anything you imagine. Bar, kitchen, living area, entertainment center or all of the above!
If you prefer the feeling of the outdoors, you should place comfortable chairs around a place elegant fireplace, the perfect place to roast marshmallows and enjoy warm drinks on a cool evening. Place cozy outdoor heaters around a table to dine and chat outdoors on a cool evening.
Nice indoor pools
Another way to enjoy your pool all year round, which is becoming increasingly popular, is to bring it all or part of the house. When designing an indoor pool area, use elements of the house and the outside to create a smooth and natural flow.
A glass pool roof connected to the house offers interior comfort and the outside, the perfect combination. Alternatively, a partial pool cover that extends from the house can protect you from the elements and make you feel at home.
In places where the weather is too cold to swim most months of the year, a year-round pool area is ideal. With intelligent design ideas, you can make the most of your investment and enjoy your garden pool and spa – winter, spring, summer or autumn.
