Designing a pool house for a rustic property opens up a world of possibilities. While a modern pool house is often centered around entertainment, a rustic design may be styled as a serene getaway.
Today’s luxury pool houses boast lounge areas, kitchens, bar seating, and media systems for watching sports and movies. Outdoor grill areas are standard, with space for dining. Rustic pool house styles include traditional, Old World architecture and modern structures integrated into the landscape. A close connection to nature and simple living is the common element.
Rustic Pool Houses Have Unique Style
Traditional homes that have rustic architecture often use a pool house as additional living space. Older homes may have guest quarters or a studio. Stone flooring may continue from indoors to an outdoor terrace, creating a sense of continuity. Our new Cottage Versailles Collection is a perfect choice to create continuity from indoor to outdoor.
Spanish Style With Colorful Tile
In Mediterranean or Spanish-style homes, a pool house should have an Old World ambiance, with stucco or stone walls, a tile roof, and terracotta tile floors. See our Fiesole Collection featured below. Colorful, hand-painted tiles make the perfect accent for interior areas like the kitchen or fireplace. Tile accents around the pool, and incorporated into hardscaped areas, connect the pool house’s interior to the garden.
Rustic Details Blend Into Nature
Honed finishes and the natural variations of stones, like limestone help a pool house integrate into natural surroundings. A modern pool house with a rustic style might incorporate a meditation area, sauna, or natural swimming pool. To focus on the connection between indoors and out, many rustic pool houses are designed as open pavilions. Weather-proof flooring is important, choose some of our beautiful terracotta collections to add warmth and texture to your design. Check out our Cotto Med Terracotta Collection below.
The best rustic designs integrate seamlessly into their surroundings. Built-in planters, or stone pavers with plantings between them can help blur the lines between the structure and the landscape. Add an outdoor shower of tumbled stone, and continue the stone onto walls or floors to connect the structure to the outdoors.
