Few things in life bring more relaxation than poolside relaxation, from splashing around to lounging away under a shady umbrella. Spending time in your private oasis is always a treat, but why not make the most of it by throwing a beautiful new cabana into the mix? And if you need some go-to pool cabana ideas, we can help.

Here, we break down a few ideas to transform any setup from basic to memorable.

#1 An Outdoor Kitchen for the Food Aficionado

If you’re a culinary whiz and enjoy cooking al fresco, an outdoor kitchen is the perfect upgrade to your pool area. With plenty of countertop room and access to all the necessary appliances, you can whip up tasty snacks in no time.

Let’s not forget about the convenience factor; a permanent spot for meals means no more running back and forth to your home when entertaining a larger crowd.

#2 Make a Space that Doubles as a Guesthouse

Having a separate guest area near the pool adds an extra layer of convenience and privacy for overnight company. They’ll have an easy time enjoying those late-night swims with no need to worry about a back-door curfew. Excellent additions include:

  • A space-saving pull-down bed
  • A mini-fridge and microwave
  • Shower and restroom amenities
  • Cabinets and drawers for storage
  • A small coffee table

#3 A Party Hub for Summer Fun

The people who ask us for pool cabana ideas often have a passion for entertaining, so why not make your poolside cabana the life of any gathering with a party center? From a built-in tiki bar to a games room for keeping children safe and happy, the possibilities are endless.

But when it comes to decorating, don’t forget about seating! Incorporate cushioned couches and chairs for maximum comfort. And flaunt some string lights or colorful pillows for extra flair.

#4 An Elegant Dining Area

Picture a dining table surrounded by lush greenery, soft music in the background, and a light breeze brushing against your face. This is what an dining room in the open air can offer you.

Establishing a spot in your pool area for more formal entertaining will provide excellent opportunities to have friends over or host dinner parties. Just make sure the furniture is sturdy so nobody topples in for an unplanned swim.

#5 Create Some Cover

Some of our favorite, most cost-effective options involve a canopy-style structure. It allows you to create a cozy space without constructing an entirely new area, perfect with limited funds or time. If the backyard gets plenty of sun, a respite under the cabana will keep everyone cool and refreshed.
