For most of us, swimming is more of a luxury than a chore and if we had access to a swimming pool easily, wed exercise on a more regular basis. One of the most unfortunate things about living in Britain is the weather and this can be a huge factor in both our chances to go swimming and also keeping fit.
Even if you have an outdoor pool, you will seldom get the chance to really use it; thanks to the poor weather in the UK.
However, there is a solution – having an indoor pool in your conservatory (otherwise known as a pool house or pool enclosure). Conservatories provide you with the perfect opportunity to build a pool. These conservatories are not only attractive additions to your home, but can also be used to keep you fit. There are a number of reasons why conservatories are the perfect place to build a pool.
We all love the notion of swimming outdoors. With a glass conservatory you can get a great, warm alternative. Furthermore, the outdoor feel can be greatly influenced by building a pool house with large panes of glass, allow for the best view of the outdoors. This also gives you the benefits of natural light when you go for your swim, which is always a very pleasant experience.
Conservatories also keep heat in whilst allowing you to have the full benefits of the sun. For those who prefer to swim in a heated environment, this can be of significant benefit. Conservatories and pool houses allow you the chance to keep not only the heat in, but it also mean that you can heat the pool using the natural resource we so seldom see the Sun.
All year round
If you dont want to bare the electricity costs of a heated pool house, or if you dont mind swimming in cool waters, then a pool house is still a great option as you can enjoy the swimming pool all year round regardless of the British weather. This is a significant benefit if youre keen to keep with an exercise regime, without having to worry about the weather, especially in winter.
Having a home with a swimming pool makes your home all the more desirable. However when you look at all the benefits weve spoken about, having a home that provides you with swimming all year around and a conservatory is even more desirable. By combining both of these factors you achieve something that is wanted, great to use and increases the value of your home beyond the sum of their individual parts.
Not only will you enjoy the opportunity to take a dip all year round, but also enjoy a beautiful, useful conservatory. The fact your pool is inside your conservatory also means you wont have to spend as much heating the water.
As you can see, aside from the obvious benefits, there are a number of reasons why a pool in a conservatory, simply makes sense.
