12 Lanai pool styles

16.06.2022 Admin 26
Have you ever thought of having a pool in the comforts of your home? Not the Olympic-sized one, but a relaxing, personalized, and extended just in your home? Yes, it is possible. It can be a pool on your patio or any area for that matter, as long as you have a space. The pool can have an enclosure to protect you from insects while enjoying the comforts of your outdoor area during your free time.

The abovementioned area is called a Lanai. It is a Hawaiian term that means covered patio. Most of them have a hard floor and covered roof. In some tropical places, it is not necessarily fully covered but has a roofed section which is the entrance. Typically, this can be a dining area, breather, lounge area, meditation area, pool or garden. As time goes by, the designs become modified and the structures come in a wide variety too. 

With this, it is important to set your plan straight. First, assess your area to know the measurements for your pool. Second, know your style of pool in terms of its shape. Third, what furniture would you be needing? Lastly, know your preferred design. Your planning phase does not need to follow these steps religiously. Sometimes, the last step becomes your first. Whatever phase you are at, it is best to have enough knowledge and inspiration on lanai pool styles. Of course, we will not leave you hanging. That is why you are on the right page! We will provide some ideas for your dream lanai pool. Try to search some of them to see if the designs fit your taste.
