Poolside Pavilion Ideas

April 10, 2023

After a blustery Midwestern winter, spending time by the pool in your poolside pavilion is the perfect way to enjoy the summer. Our summers can be sunny and hot, and a pool pavilion is an ideal way to stay outside by the pool but out of the sun. Countryside Barns can provide a poolside pavilion that can stand up to the snow, rain, and sun for years.

How Can You Use Your Poolside Pavilion?

Using your pavilion as a place to retreat and enjoy some shade when the sun gets too warm is a great use of your poolside pavilion. But it can also be so much more than just a cool, shady spot to stretch out and relax.

A pool pavilion can also be an ideal place to double as a picnic area, a perfect place to protect your hot tub, or a home for your ideal outdoor kitchen. Some creative folks find a way to combine a few or all of these uses inside a larger poolside pavilion to enjoy their backyard oasis.

When it comes to furnishing your pool pavilion, adding a couple of lounge chairs and a small table for a cold drink and a good book is a great start. Another popular idea is an outdoor sofa set with matching chairs set around an outdoor fireplace and flanked by a big-screen TV.

You can take your pool pavilion to the next level by making it your spot for outdoor grilling with a kitchen area, including a fridge and wet bar. Nothing beats a barbeque on a summer day with friends and family poolside, yet out of the direct sun.

Poolside pavilions can also be an ideal spot to place a firepit or jacuzzi adjacent to. It completes an outdoor living area and becomes something you can enjoy year-round.
