Pool House for the Dream Home – First Look

Well, it’s a rainy Labor Day here in the States, so what better time (now that summer is basically over!) to update the Dream Home Pool House. As a reminder, I have been slowly working through my own virtual Dream Home. You can see the completed spaces here and where I am with the owner’s wing here. The pool house is 900 sq. ft. (pretty much the same size as my Nook Cottage!). But the idea is that it not only serves as a pool house/entertaining space but also a guest house. There is a fully functioning kitchen, laundry, bunk room and bath, plus outdoor showers along the left side when facing the house. The enclosures on the right would house ac and pool electricals, lawn stuff.

Above are fabrics for the sofa (white Carnegie performance fabric), ottoman (Opuzen) and pillows. The wall colors would be Sherwin Williams Secret Cove.

This is what I’m thinking for the bathroom. A cheeky wall paper from Mitchell Black, tile from Adex and luxury vinyl tile flooring in a wood look from Ozogrip Gallery which has a nice textural surface. Practical and grippy underfoot.

The Pool House is basically an open floor plan overlooking the back yard and pool area. A large sectional anchors the seating area, which would have a sleeper for guests. There is a 4 berth bunk room with individual curtains for privacy. The kitchen features natural finished drift oak cabinets with a washer/dryer, refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher and microwave and a small induction cooktop.

More views. Some pool house details still to be worked out like the carpet, wall color. Window treatments for privacy.

I’m thinking for the pool house window treatments, there would be motorized blackout shades, two on each slider for flexibility. There’s not enough space for drapery, which is my usual go-to. But you need a lot of space on the sides when working drapery on a slider and you don’t want to block the view.

So, that’s where I am at the moment on the Pool House / Guest House. What do you think ? More to come on the bathroom – that’s definitely still a work in progress!
