Luxury Home Series: Custom Indoor Pool
If you’ve ever dreamed of your perfect luxury home, you’ve probably considered an indoor pool. At Omega Homes, we’re here to tell you that a custom indoor pool doesn’t have to be a dream, it can be a very achievable reality when you work with the right home builder. Imagine coming home from work to the comfort of your own private pool operational all year long and calling to be enjoyed by you, your family, and your friends. If you’re interested in taking the plunge (so to speak) and enjoying your own custom indoor pool, here are a few staple features you may want to consider.
Create A Spa-Like Atmosphere
A custom indoor pool should reflect the luxury of a personal spa. When designing and conceptualizing your indoor pool, you should consider what custom features would make you feel the most comfortable and pampered. A spa-like atmosphere can be achieved through soft lighting, natural and calming colours, beautiful luxury lounge chairs, and high-end specialty items like a steam room, personal showers, and towel heaters. When you choose to incorporate spa aesthetics and amenities into your custom indoor pool, you’re allowing the space to have versatility between a fun and active place to swim and exercise as well as a peaceful and meditative place to decompress.
Surround Sound Speakers
Music can really set the tone for an entire room, especially when it comes from high-quality surround sound speakers. Installing surround sound Bluetooth speakers throughout the room of your custom indoor pool will help maximize the mood, whether that’s playful, relaxed, romantic, or casual. Float around your pool on your own while listening to your favourite band or a great new podcast, swim to your workout playlist to get some exercise or play your party playlist when friends come to play and laugh in your pool. With surround sound speakers, the options for setting the mood in your custom indoor pool are endless.
Windows And Skylights
Imagine yourself swimming in a warm, private indoor pool, and enjoying what’s usually considered summertime fun when just on the other side of the room’s windows is an Ottawa snow storm! Enjoying your pool becomes so much more fun when you can watch the outdoor activity in your backyard, watch snow and rainfall, and enjoy the sunlight from the warmth of being inside. Add skylight windows so you can float on your back and watch birds fly overhead as if you were in an outdoor pool in the middle of summer, even if you’re swimming in January.
Go Wild On The Lighting
While large windows and skylights provide lighting in the daytime, during the evening you should experience beautiful and aesthetic lighting as well. Choosing interesting lighting that fits your pool’s aesthetic can really augment your custom indoor pool experience. Consider lighting that can be controlled by your smartphone to change colour and brightness, and even change lighting patterns. Similar to music, controllable lights can create a multitude of feelings from excitement, to relaxation, to motivation, to romance. Controllable lighting can take several forms from LED strips to aesthetic neon signs, to regular overhead lighting.
Seating, Benches, And Storage
For a functional custom indoor pool, it’s important that there’s a place for both people and objects to go when not in the pool or in use. Items like pool toys, floaties, pool maintenance equipment, towels, and goggles can take up a lot of space, so it’s smart to account for that with subtle storage that camouflages into seating and decor. Seating and benches are also must-haves when it comes to a custom indoor pool so family members and guests have a place to relax and take a break from swimming without having to walk into the rest of the home in their wet bathing suit.
You’ve heard of statement walls, but when it comes to pool rooms, a statement ceiling can be much more luxurious and impactful. Statement ceilings can come in many forms, but they all serve the same purpose: to make the space appear bigger, more luxurious, and more personal. For a great statement ceiling, you could choose to add crown molding, arches, large skylight windows, a statement colour, or extravagant and eye-catching lighting. Choosing one of these luxurious aspects to add to your ceiling will help to make the space feel bigger and it’ll add brightness and decor to the room. When it comes to statement ceilings, the sky is the limit!
Hot Tub Incorporation
If you’re going to build a custom indoor pool, adding a hot tub is a no-brainer! The question that remains, however, is how you’re going to incorporate it as part of the room. Many people choose to connect the hot tub to the pool in some way, even adding interesting shapes to personalize the design. While others choose to have their hot tub on a platform away from the pool to truly separate the two areas. The best way to choose the right hot tub incorporation is to work with your designer to consider your needs and the best aesthetic choice for the room!
