The indoor pool, the epitome of luxury

Synonymous with well-being and privilege, the indoor swimming pool invites itself into the most beautiful homes and apartments. With its own space called the swimming room, it is a real attraction stealing the show from the other rooms in the house. A luxury indoor pool or pond, it is a premium piece of equipment and an object of great envy. The swimming pool specialists are responding to this trend, even in Belgium.

Dries De Malsche

Built in the summer of 2020, the DVB residence of studio Ontwerpbureau Dries De Malsche, located in Knokke-Heist, includes a breathtaking wellness and spa area. A rectangular pool surrounded by glass windows blends discreetly with the landscape and lush gardens. A minimalist design by Belgian interior architect Dries De Malsche with a relaxing atmosphere. Just like the sumptuous round indoor pool at the Art Villa complex in Costa Rica. Designed by Refuel Works and Formafatal studios, this space, integrated into an exceptional villa open to the jungle, reflects a natural and calm setting that borders on a meditative experience. In the same search for serenity and fusion with nature, a villa designed by the Instore design store in 2020 in Lasne, Belgium, offers a unique view of the green forest.

To finish this selection of dreamy indoor pools, head to Portugal. In 2013, Guedes Cruz Arquitectos embarked on the construction of a luxury property, named The Wall House, with a pair of surreal pools, like a glass palace. Two large pools are superimposed in space and seem to defy the laws of weightlessness. Combining various inspirations, shapes and designs, these indoor pools cultivate well-being and beauty to perfection.

Indoor swimming pool: the ultimate luxury at home

A reflection of well-being and luxury, the indoor pool has many advantages… The main advantage: the pleasure of swimming even in the middle of winter. Indeed, the availability of the pool is not conditioned by the seasons. It is therefore possible to enjoy a swimming session or a relaxing moment in the water, whatever the weather. No need to wait for the summer period to enjoy the joys of swimming.

Another undeniable asset: the magic of a restful place. The soft melody of the water, the intimate setting and the relaxing atmosphere make the swimming room a privileged space for relaxation and well-being. A daily dose of peace and quiet is the promise of an indoor pool.

And that’s not all, because some designs offer a panoramic view of nature and the horizon. A swimming pool set up in a veranda, under a glass roof or in a room with bay windows, allows a glimpse of the landscape. The swimming room then turns naturally towards the garden, creating a connection with the surrounding nature and an illusion of continuity between the interior and the exterior. This unique design provides an open air feeling and a real bath of light. The openings also favour the sunshine of the pool. Whether it’s a gym for swimmers or a place to relax and unwind, the indoor pool has many uses.

Moving from dream to reality with the installation of a majestic swimming room

Owning a swimming room is a project that is increasingly sought after by homeowners wishing to treat themselves to the ultimate in home luxury. This installation requires taking into account precautions as well as particular criteria and is different from an external swimming pool (treatment of the air, water, heating system…). The design of this project thus requires the presence of a professional. 

In Belgium, to create a luxury cocoon, manufacturers such as LVP Piscines accompany owners through all the stages of their pool’s construction and are committed to bringing their project to life. They design made-to-measure models, which can be fully customised, in order to offer their customers the pool of their dreams. The models are made of noble and durable materials, but also aesthetic like concrete.

For more originality, the manufacturer Natura Piscines offers a unique concept: indoor wooden pools. While being ecological, these models warm the atmosphere and do not lack charm.

To afford the luxury of a home swimming pool, you need to spend around 20,000 euros for a small pool and 50,000 euros for a custom-made concrete pool. This is an average, as the price can vary depending on the addition of extra equipment such as massage nozzles, lighting, underwater enclosures or counter-current swimming. Taking into account the necessary installations and fittings, the cost is more expensive than for an outdoor pool, but it is the price of peace and quiet, of swimming in complete privacy all year round, as well as the realization of a dream.
