Pool pavilions are a great way to enhance the natural beauty of your pool and backyard. Your pavilion can serve several purposes as well as adding the final touch of design that will complete your landscape and pool.
Pavilions can house many things including changing rooms, showers, bathrooms, kitchens, and even lounging areas. There are even some pavilions that will come with a sauna, jacuzzi or exercise area. The pool pavilion is yours to create and design as you wish. Make the decisions that will work for your area and needs. The first thing you want to do is match your pavilion to your home design and landscape. Its architecture can resemble your home as well as be in the same color family to blend in well and look like it has been there since the beginning. The size is also very important as you don’t want it to overtake your entire yard, but only be a nice piece of it.
You can keep it as simple as a cabana. A nice little shady retreat near the pool that fits a couple of cushioned lounge chairs and maybe a little refrigerator and table. While others can be very, very elaborate and encompass everything you will need outside and more. There are also aluminum and dura teak pool pavilions in many styles and sizes to compliment any backyard and pool area.
When choosing a pool pavilion, pool umbrellas and even commercial pool umbrellas, it is important to consider what you are using it for. You should choose the one that fits your own personal style, the size of your family, the type of entertaining you do the most, as well as the type of guests that will frequent your home. The larger your entertainment area is, the larger your pavilion can be. If you want the pool pavilion to be like an extension of your home that just happens to be on the outside, think about the conveniences that you enjoy on the inside of your home and add them to the design. If entertaining large groups is your passion, you can add a bathroom, shower, or even a refrigerator to your pavilion. This will also cut down on the traffic through your home and the clean up after the party-goers have left. It will help keep your own space private while still meeting the needs of your guests. Your parties will be the ones that are talked about the next day with your personally designed pool pavilion. Enjoy!
