A pool cabana is a small house that will certainly complement your backyard pool. Having a pool at your disposal whenever you want to take a dip in the summer is a convenience that most homeowners would like to have. If you are one of the lucky people to have a pool, then you should exploit this as much as possible, and add to the ambiance by building a cabana. Visitors will surely be impressed the very minute they enter your yard and pool area.

1. Extend Entertainment Area

It is almost a certainty that when you have a pool, you will want to entertain your friends with a pool party. Instead of having the guests track through the house, if you have a cabana, you can limit them to the pool area, giving you less to clean up afterwards. Guests can use the washroom here instead of having to track wet marks on the floors of your home. With a pool house, you have the outside space for serving food and drinks. You won’t have to try to keep track of the guests, thinking that one of them may be rummaging through your house.

A cabana is a place to change into and out of your swimwear – again giving your home and bathroom a respite from a lot of traffic.

2. Extra Storage Area

In the winter months, when you are not using the pool, a cabana is a great place to store all the toys you have for the pool as well as the chemicals you use for keeping the water clean. It is also a great storage area for your deck chairs and tables or anything else you use in the summer and don’t want to store in the house.

3. Increase the Value of Your Home

Having a pool in the backyard raises the value of your home on the real estate market. Having a pool cabana raises this value even higher. When you put your home on the market, having a pool house should bring you more money in the sale than you paid to have it built. The ads showing your home will also bring more potential buyers, and this could result in a bidding competition, as buyers may offer more than your asking price just to buy the property.

4. Make the Cabana a Home Gym

The pool is a place where people not only swim for pleasure, but enjoy exercising in water. With fitness equipment in the cabana, you have your own private gym right on your property. You won’t have to take up any space in your home for the equipment, and you can set your own time for exercising. In addition, you can still enjoy the benefits of a cabana at all times of the year.

5. Various Styles Available

You can plan the design of your cabana if you wish, but why bother when there are companies that specialize in building pool houses. You can choose the plan you want and have it installed without having to lift a finger. If you want, you can have a hot tub inside the cabana for extra comfort. A bathroom, changing room and kitchen are standard inclusions, but you can have whatever design you choose.
