Four Fun And Unusual Pool Featuresby Wendy Murphy Tech Consultant
There are many fantastic pool features to choose from when designing your backyard oasis. Now more than ever, it’s easy for Florida homeowners to institute creative pool designs. If you’re looking for ways to help your pool stand as the best in your neighborhood, consider these four fun and unusual pool features.
Dive-In Movie Theater
Take the concepts from a drive-in movie theater and put them into your new pool design! You can build a screen into the design of your pool, perhaps built into a rock wall. You’ll also need to install a projector and speakers. Purchase a few floats for seating, and you’re good to go. Popcorn is still recommended, as long as you can keep it dry!
Fun for both adults and children alike, a rock-climbing wall is an excellent way to add excitement to your pool. You could build the rock-climbing wall ten to twenty feet high. The wall will be built into the edge of your pool and extend upwards at a curved angle. This ensures that when they fall, the climbers fall into the water. You’ll need to make sure the depth of your pool is deep enough for such falls.
This is one design feature that people have begun to take advantage of in recent years. Previously, you could only access a swim-up bar at a tropical resort. But now, it’s easy to install them in your pool. Most pool owners choose to create a hut that contains a kitchen and wet bar. This area is accessible from dry land. However, the bar will face the pool, where there will be multiple stone seats in the water. This makes it easy for those enjoying a swim to enjoy a delicious beverage as well!
Fireplace In The Pool
Another exciting design feature that we’ve seen lately is a fireplace in the pool. A round structure will be placed in the middle of the pool. This area will contain a fire in the middle and will be surrounded by benches or chairs. Guests can enter and exit this area via stairs that are connected to the pool deck.
