Immerse yourself in stunning pool house designs from Greek revival to modern Gothic!
As the temperature creeps toward 90 degrees Fahrenheit today, I am dreaming of being able doing the Nestea plunge in a pool in my own backyard. As the dream expands, I imagine a beautifully appointed pool house where I can settle among pillows covered in Trina Turk fabric in my bathing suit and stylish Tory Burch tunic (I don’t actually own either), grab some unsweet tea from the wet bar and write my ideabooks while I cool off.
Alas, it’s just a sweltering day’s daydream, but cruising through the beautiful pool houses on Houzz helps enhance it. Whether you’re planning to make your pool plans come to fruition or just want to join me in the dream, I hope these six diverse pool houses will cool you off and take you away for a few minutes today.
Pleasing proportions inside include a vaulted ceiling that makes the space feel much larger, while custom built-ins provide storage that keeps clutter at bay. Bluestone floors create continuity between indoors and out.

Fresh transitional style honors the vast, open space and draws the eye to the original structural components, beautiful rough-hewn posts and beams.
The outdoor space on this covered porch has year-round appeal; when it’s too chilly for a dip, the family can gather by the outdoor fireplace and watch postseason football games.
Another stunning feature is this solid walnut bathtub with birdseye maple inlay trim.
Casual comfort in a California garage. When this Northern California family began to outgrow their cottage, they looked to their extra-large garage for more space. The resulting pool house, built by Bill Fry Construction, is a favorite place where the kids hang out with their friends for games and movie nights.
The existing garage was so large that they still have space for their cars on the other side.
For those who don’t want to tromp all the way through the pool house to reach the luxurious steam shower, a convenient outdoor shower was added during the pool house renovation.
The pavilion provides shade and comfort during the day, and there’s a cozy glow at night via the outdoor fireplace.
