Having a home swimming pool is a fantastic and desirable feature that many people would love to own for themselves. However not all swimming pools are born equal, and while any pool will be an amazing feature to add to your home, there are numerous ways that you can get more from your standard indoor pool and make it all the more impressive. Read on to find out how you can start making the very most from your pool with a retractable roof.
Enjoy the Benefits of Both Indoor and Outdoor Swimming
Swimming outdoors has many benefits. Not only does it allow you to relax in the sun and really feel like you're on a summer holiday, but it also gives you the opportunity to look up at the stars and float around while you admire the constellations - an incredibly relaxing and atmospheric way to enjoy your pool.
At the same time though, being outdoors has its problems. For one, it means that you won't be able to use your pool when it's very cold or when it's raining, and at the same time it means you'll spend a lot more time and money on cleaning out your pool and removing the floating leaves and dirt that will collect there. By using a retractable roof, you can solve these problems by closing the lid on your pool when the weather turns foul or when you're not using the pool, but at the same time you'll be able to appreciate the sun or the stars when you want to. This way, you can also escape from sun burn which is something many people forget when enjoying their pool.
There are more advantages too, as the roof allows you to use your pool in whole new ways. There is nothing quite as relaxing as listening to the sound of the rain pattering on the roof while you're floating around in the water for instance, and this also means you'll be able to benefit from a range of additional features inside your pool. Listen to music, watch TV or arrange soft furniture around your pool with no worry of it getting wet overnight.
When you're not using your pool, you can enjoy to sit around it and gaze at its luminescence. Having a retractable roof in one room will mean you can sometimes eat under the sun without having to use grotty garden furniture, and that you can lay down and look up at the stars on a comfortable sofa.
Another bonus of having a retractable dome over your pool is that it will add incredible wow factor to your home. As soon as you show someone you have an indoor pool, you can expect them to be impressed and a little envious. When you then press a button in order to retract the roof and let the sun shine in though, you'll find that their jaws really drop. This makes your pool a perfect showpiece, and it's also a great way to add value to your property and guarantee that your home sells quickly when you come to move.
