If you want to swim year-around, a great option is an indoor pool. While not as enjoyable as an outdoor pool in the backyard on a sunny day, they’re a great option if you love swimming and live in a colder climate.
I particularly love indoor pools as a way to cool down in between sauna rounds. I’m not a lap swimmer, but I love bobbing around to cool off.

There are few elements of a home that are as luxurious as an indoor swimming pool. The indoor pool adds an ambience that not much else can compete with.
If you’re financially able, an indoor pool is a must. Having a pool right inside your own home with unlimited access and privacy is something that some people can only dream of. The main reason an indoor pool can get expensive is because, most times, it’s necessary to build an addition to your home and the building structure for a swimming pool can get pretty pricey. But, the price is usually worth it because they’re stunning and it’s not all about luxury; there are some other great perks of indoor swimming pools.
Perks of an Indoor Swimming Pool
- The health benefits of having a pool are unreal, swimming is one of the best cardio exercises for people of all ages. It’s also great for building and maintaining muscle.
- Indoor pools are easier to clean. There’s much less debris than outside pools and they don’t need to be winterized.
- The temperature in indoor pools can be easily controlled. Although you’ll be paying a bit more in electric, you can swim in any temperature you please.
- Even while it’s snowing outside, you can swim in an indoor pool. You can swim in the pool 365 days a year. If you use it often enough, it might be an equal investment.
Although cost is one of the only cons of having an indoor pool, it’s also usually the deciding factor. The enclosure for the pool included, an indoor pool can cost upwards of $200,000 (depending on quality of equipment, size, etc.). The yearly costs will then include any maintenance and then electrical and water costs.
