Cocktail pools are smaller versions of regular-sized pools that are perfect for social gatherings and parties. Many come equipped with special features like waterfalls or built-in bars that make them aesthetically pleasing additions to any home.
Cocktail pools make for great entertainment during summer and an inviting place to unwind with friends during wintertime. Here's what you should know about cocktail pools:
Cost - The cost of a cocktail pool varies based on size, materials used and features you choose to include. On average it will be cheaper than standard-sized pools but could go up to several thousand dollars. Ultimately the final decision as to where you install your pool will determine its final price; whether that be outdoors in your backyard or not.
Environmentally-Friendly - Cocktail pools tend to generate less carbon footprint than standard-sized pools due to their use of fewer resources. Many people also utilize solar panels for heating their pools, cutting down on energy costs and helping the environment at the same time.
Ease of Maintenance - Regular-sized pools require extensive cleaning, while cocktail pools can be easily and quickly drained after draining. This makes them the ideal option for homeowners with limited time to dedicate to maintaining traditional pools.
Style - Cocktail pools often resemble mini swimming pools, but can also be customized to resemble a spa in shape and design. With jets, heaters, and even a pool bar you can create an enchanting pool experience for yourself and your guests.
Customizing a cocktail pool with deck or surrounding patio can add value, as being covered helps extend its use during summer and prevent water damage when rainstorms arrive.
An outdoor fire pit can be a wonderful addition to your yard if you have a cocktail pool. Enjoy the sun while warming up next to it with the fire in the evenings.
Installed either below or above ground, these structures often come in a sunken area of your backyard and offer a beautiful, serene space for family members or guests to relax and unwind.
Cocktail pools can be installed on a concrete, fiberglass, copper or vinyl liner. With so many sizes and shapes available to choose from, it's easy to find one that meets both your needs and budget.
Cocktail pools range in cost from $22,650 to $50,000, depending on the size, material and features you select. Your location as well as how it's installed (above or below ground) will influence the final cost.
