Unlocking the Magic: Enjoying Your Pool Even When It is Cold Outside

As the temperature drops, it doesn’t mean you have to bid farewell to your pool oasis and Outdoor Living Space. Embrace the magic of your aquatic haven even during the chilly days. Here are some creative ways to make the most of your pool in the cold:

1. Hot Tub Haven: Convert your pool into a hot tub haven. Adjust the temperature to a warm, soothing degree, and let the steam rise as you bask in the cozy warmth. Invite friends over for a unique winter spa experience.  Don’t have a Heater?  No Problem, Custom Outdoors can install one for you.

2. Poolside Fire Pit: Install a fire pit near your pool area. The warmth of the crackling flames will not only keep the surroundings cozy but also create a mesmerizing ambiance. Roast marshmallows, tell stories, and enjoy the winter charm.

3. Winter Poolside Picnic: Spread out warm blankets on your poolside loungers and enjoy a winter picnic. Pack some hot cocoa, comfort foods, and snuggle up for a unique outdoor dining experience. The cool air adds a refreshing touch to your feast. Fun Tip:  Make smores in the oven!  Simply lay your grahm crackers out on a baking pan, put your chocolate and marshmallow on top and bake until melted.  Careful, don’t eat them when they are too hot!

4. Pool Games Redux: Winterize your favorite pool games. Try floating a few waterproof LED lights for nighttime Marco Polo or glow-in-the-dark pool volleyball. It’s a fantastic way to stay active and enjoy the pool year-round.

5. Movie Night under the Stars: Set up a projector and a screen poolside. Create a cozy movie-watching area with blankets and cushions. Float on pool floats or lounge by the water’s edge while enjoying your favorite films under the starry winter sky.

6. Winter Swim Workout: Brave the cold and indulge in a winter swim workout. The crisp air combined with the invigorating swim can be both refreshing and exhilarating. It’s an excellent way to stay active and beat the winter blues.

7. Winter Poolside Yoga: Embrace the serenity of winter with poolside yoga. The quiet surroundings, combined with the gentle splash of water, create a unique ambiance for your yoga practice. Set up a heater nearby to ensure comfort during your session.

8. Ice Sculpture Showcase: Embrace the winter chill by creating stunning ice sculptures around your pool. Freeze flowers, berries, or even LED lights in water-filled containers, and arrange them artistically. Watch as your pool area transforms into a winter wonderland.

9. Stargazing Soiree: Winter skies often offer clear, starry views. Arrange a stargazing party by the pool. Bring out cozy blankets, hot drinks, and enjoy the celestial display from the comfort of your outdoor oasis.

10. Polar Plunge Tradition: Start a polar plunge tradition with friends and family. Challenge each other to a quick dip in the cold pool water. It’s invigorating, memorable, and adds a touch of adventure to your winter pool experience. Athlete note:  Your winter pool is the perfect temperature for cold plunging.  Your pool water will average 10 degrees beneath the coolest temperature of the day.  Make sure you have a “buddy” or someone that is keeping an eye on you in case you stay in a little too long.

Remember, with a bit of creativity, your pool can become a versatile and enjoyable space throughout the colder months. Embrace the season and make lasting memories in your winter wonderland retreat. 🌬️🌟
