When building a pool house it is important to consider not only how it will look, but also how it will perform. Correct air handling and heating are essential to eliminate condensation and ensure the room is comfortable.
Glass sides and a roof lantern create a feeling of space, allowing views of the garden and sky whilst swimming. Solar reflective glass ensures glare is minimised. During the warmer months, folding doors can be opened wide, extending the poolside into the garden. A free standing orangery can accompany an uncovered pool with changing facilities, shower rooms and concealed pump housing.
Alternatively, use it is a luxurious summer house; a place to relax and enjoy the mesmerising sight of a flickering pool glistening with reflected sunlight.
Design & style
One of the most important considerations when creating a pool enclosure is to ensure that there is enough side glazing, creating good views of the surrounding garden and beyond.
It is preferable to have a semi-glazed as opposed to a fully-glazed roof, as it makes it easier to maintain the proper climate-controlled environment inside; preventing condensation from building up on the glass and any potential cold spots.
Glass lanterns and gables contain a sufficient amount of glass to illuminate the water and other specified areas, allowing views of the sky without excessive glare or too much solar heat gain. The garden room or orangery style can lend itself very well to this built form having many sets of double opening doors or retractable sides.
At Westbury we can provide a service that covers everything from initial building design to full project completion. We extend this service further by presenting a range of final “furnishings”, such as flooring and lighting. Our range is carefully selected to help you create the mood you desire.
Our flooring range is ideal to complement our beautiful garden buildings; hard wearing, yet stunning, our water proof stone flooring perfectly sits surrounding a pool. Light coloured stone flooring reflects light back into the room creating a bright fresh feeling.
All year round
An indoor swimming pool provides a private and exciting place to have fun with friends and family, as well as a personal space to exercise or relax in the comfort of your own home.
The patio area outside of your pool house provides the ideal venue for entertaining guests at a summer BBQ, as well as allowing you to sunbathe in privacy, close to the cooling and inviting water.
