From allowing you to hone your butterfly and breaststroke in the winter months to elevating the ambiance of your interior, indoor swimming pools bring together aesthetics and ergonomics in a breathtaking manner. These inspired pools add glint to your luxurious indoor spa and complete your workout space with elegance and style. Be it the audacious or the understated, here are 50 stunning indoor pool ideas that will leave you awestruck and inspired…
One of the popular design themes for contemporary indoor pools is to create ‘a-world-within-a world’. This magical setting allows you to escape the mundane rush of your life and often transports you into a surreal alternate world that is far away from your busy urban life. Themes for such extravagant indoor pools vary depending on both the available space and your own personal preference. You can use a few exotic plants, a lovely waterfall feature set in natural rocks and the right lighting to create a tropical getaway that is just a few steps away from your living room.
When you think of indoor pools, the image that most often comes to mind is one that is surrounded by stoic concrete walls on all four sides. While this design scheme works well in regions with an ultra-cool winter, those having more moderate weather conditions can opt for the perfect compromise. Blending the indoor pool with the outdoor version, transparent screen enclosures and extensive retractable roofs allow you to enjoy the best of both worlds. Blurring the line between your indoors and the world outside, these see-through domes allow you to enjoy the view outside while shielding you from the chilly winds.
Lighting plays a pivotal role in defining pretty much every room of your house, and when it comes to indoor pools, appropriate lighting is all the more vital. No one likes to step into a pool area that is dark, dingy and poorly lit. Instead of adding to the appeal of your home, it actually takes away from the overall look. The lighting that you choose for the indoor pool must complement the theme that you have selected for the space. Combine several different layers of lighting for various effects and use an evenly spaced layer of recessed lighting to create the right ambiance.
While some prefer an indoor pool that creates a dramatic escape, others tend to prefer a pool that enhances the appeal of their contemporary home. A lavish indoor pool can be visually connected with your living room or dining area and can blend in impeccably with the rest of the house. These savvy and sleek pools also require a lot less maintenance and cleaning than outdoor pools, making them an absolute dream. Just make sure that you have the right dehumidifier and climate control systems and you are all set to enjoy endless summers indoors!
