Beautiful, stunning indoor pools – refreshing reminders of the sunny days

Even though it’s now cold outside and the last thing you want to do is jump in a pool with cold water, the satisfaction and pleasure you get when you’re doing that still can’t be forgotten. Luckily for us, there’s still one alternative: indoor pools. We’ve selected a few stunning designs that anyone would be happy to have in their home, even during winter.

This gorgeous indoor pool has an elegant traditional design and it’s a sort of central covered courtyard for the residence. The ceiling above the pool showcases lots of beautiful stars and it’s a joy to be able to relax there and to watch the star-lit sky, even though it’s not real.

This pool is part of a beautiful contemporary residence. It’s surrounded by lounge areas and covered outdoor terraces. The ceiling is completely covered in transparent glass and this means that the sky and the tree tops are visible from the pool. This makes swimming in there better than anything you can imagine.

Here we have another contemporary residence, also featuring an indoor pool. This time the pool is not part of a large covered lounge area. It has large windows on one side and a skylight in the ceiling, while on the other side it’s surrounded by the stairway and the rest of the rooms.

This is an indoor lap pool, a beautiful addition to this modern residence. It has walls on three sides and floor-to-ceiling windows on the fourth. The ceiling is flat and not as high as in the case of the other designs presented so far but this detail, in combination with the exposed beams and wood-paneled ceiling surface, contributes to an overall intimate and casual look.

This custom indoor private pool is one of the largest ones so far. It’s a simple, traditional pool but there are so many details that make this space stylish and exquisite. On one side of the pool there’s a TV bar area with lounge spaces, sofas and armchairs.

This is a small but still very beautiful indoor pool. It’s a private pool, in a contemporary house sitting in the middle of nature. It’s why the floor=to-ceiling windows were a must-have in order to allow panoramic views of the trees and surrounding landscape.

This stunning indoor pool was designed to be the main focal point of the residence. The bridge that connects the foyer and the living room features a glass floor panel and this amazing pool underneath. The living room ends with a beautiful sitting area that allows guests to stand directly over the pool below.

This chic indoor pool is also marvelous. It’s small but it has a very beautiful organic shape. The white floor, walls and ceiling provide a very serene background while the skylight filters plenty of natural light and allows views of the sky. The fresh plants are a wonderful detail.
