What is a Pool House & Its' Purpose?
The primary definition and purpose of a pool house is to be located within close proximity to your
pool, to provide a private space for your guests to change, take a shower, a nap or enjoy a beverage.
A pool house can be utilised to store additional towels, lounge chairs, umbrellas, cleaning equipment
or other items used in your pool. Alternatively, it can be a space for your guests to stay when
visiting. Their own private spot overlooking the pool and beautiful landscaping.
Pros and Cons of Building a Sunshine Coast Pool House
If you are currently trying to decide whether or not to take the ‘plunge’ and build a Sunshine Coast
pool house, it may help to weigh up the pros and cons first.
Pros – There are many benefits to consider in building a pool house. To start, a pool house will
provide a space for your guests to change when popping over for a swim. Whilst this may not seem
like a big deal, if you prefer to limit traffic inside your home, and keep the water from being tracked
inside, this is definitely a big convenience.
A Sunshine Coast pool house will also add value to your home and increase the overall appeal too. A
pool house in addition to the pool, can elevate the overall pool experience making it feel more like a
special treat especially when factoring in guests.
Having a pool house can also serve as a place where the pool users can commune and enjoy each
other’s company, in a shaded or climate control area, making memories that will last long after the
pool party is over.
Cons – On the other hand, there may be some downsides. The biggest and most common one we
are asked about is what to do with the space during the cooler months. Given that the costs
associated with building a Sunshine Coast pool house might be a little bit higher than the cost of
your weekly shop, it would make sense that you can use the space all year round.
Instead of looking at this negatively, consider how the space can serve multiple uses. For instance,
do you work from home, do you like to partake in art or music, do you often have guests stay over?
If the answer to any of those questions is yes, then it should be no issue! Not only can a pool house
elevate your pool experience, it can also create the opportunity to run a home business, provide
your guests with the luxury of a resort like experience and/or give you the space to take up a hobby.
