Adding A Swimming Pool To Your Sun Room: Three Options To Consider

Posted on: 6 December 2017

Whether you don't have the space for a swimming pool in your backyard or you simply want a pool you can use year-round, converting a sunroom to a pool room is a great option. Work with your custom pool builder to create the design that works for you, and choose from any of the following options to create the indoor pool that meets your family's needs.

Lap Pool

If your swimming pool will be used largely for exercise, a lap pool may be right for you. These pools, also known as endless pools, can be on the smaller side to fit in a sunroom with limited space, and they feature a built-in current that lets you swim while remaining in place. This means you don't have to worry about the length of the pool, as you can simply swim continuously. The current can also be turned off so you and your children can splash around and have fun. Your pool builder can come up with a custom design to fit your available space, and he or she can also help to create a tile or concrete floor that surrounds the pool.

Wading Pool

If you have little ones, you may prefer a shallow pool that your children can play freely in. These pools can be customized with waterfalls, sprinklers, and even small slides to add to the fun. For this option, work with your pool builder to create a playful design with plenty of bright colors. You may even want to continue the colorful theme to the rest of the room, choosing bright paints and whimsical decorations to transform your sunroom into a swimming playroom. Be sure that the room has a door that locks securely so your children can't access the pool area without you present.

Home Spa

Your sunroom can also be a great place for grownups to relax after a long day at work. If this sounds like a tempting option, consider a custom spa instead of a traditional pool. Your pool builder can help to create a spa that fits your needs and space. For example, you can opt for a spa that is the same size as a small swimming pool, or you can choose a smaller spa in a unique shape. Custom spas can be outfitted with built-in cocktail tables, captain's chairs, and even waterfalls for a unique finishing touch.

Talk to your contractor about custom designs featuring unique looks, such as stone or mosaic tile. The possibilities for a custom pool in your sunroom are endless, and your pool builder can help you to find the perfect design to meet your lifestyle and needs.
