After your swim spa is installed, you will be spending a lot more time outdoors. That is, of course, if your swim spa was installed outdoors versus inside. If you spa is installed outside, you may become interested in expanding your outdoor living space. You can do this with some outdoor additions, and you have a lot of options to choose from.
It can be a real hassle having to walk back and forth to the house for entertaining. The best solution here is a pool house or enclosure. You can keep it as small or large as you like, which will depend on your space and budget.
If you are looking for just a small enclosure that can be used as a change room, a cabana may work for you. If you are looking for space just for relaxing and entertaining, a deck may be what you need.
With either one of these choices, you can have a wonderful selection of furniture. This is ideal for relaxing in between uses of the swim spa.
If you have a good weather environment or lots of space, you want to make the best use of this.
You may want to build an outdoor kitchen that is close to your pool area. You can go with something simple or elaborate. There is no shortage of selections of equipment to choose from for your outdoor kitchen.
There are many different appliances that are made for this use. If you want to keep it simple, you can simply restrict this area for your barbecue and some sitting space to enjoy meals. Conversely, you can put in a full blown kitchen with a stove, sink and fridge. It is all going to come down to your space and budget.
In terms of enclosures, you can have a fixed or retractable roof. Having an enclosed roof that is retractable, gives you the best of both worlds. In the warmer weather, you can have the roof open. In the cooler weather, you can close the roof to help retain the heat of your swim spa, increasing the amount of time that you are able to use it.
If you are limited on space that doesn't mean you don't have the option for an enclosure. There are many quality ones available that can be used for various swim spa shapes and sizes.
Do some research first before making your decision to see how you can make the best use of your available space.
You may only want to do a small outdoor section this year and then expand on it in the years to come. If so, you want to keep this in mind during your planning stages.
