Today I thought I’d talk about the ultimate summer living accessory, the pool house - the perfect great escape!

The pool house is a true multifunctional space. It can be as simple as a 3-sided respite from the sun, to a full-fledged mini-house. Keys to comfort include outdoor fabrics, a hardscape floor, and hopefully, a comfy sofa or bed, as pool houses are fabulous spots to park an extra visitor, too.

One of the most important features for me is a full bath changing room, which means wet bathing suits stay outside, and no one needs to come into the main house leaving a trail of water! A must is lots of hooks for drying towels! In the below bath, I used penny tile as it has the right grout-to-tile ratio, so already-wet feet have the least chance of slipping!

I also love a kitchenette, so people can enjoy snacks and cold beverages without leaving wet footprints in the main house. In the casita below, I included a beverage cooler and a microwave for just that purpose.

I’ll leave you with this image of a dream pool house/guesthouse. If this were mine, I might just move out there full-time, as it’s impossibly cozy and quaint!
