A pool house or shed is a must to store all of your pool supplies when they aren’t in use and will also mean less traffic in and out of your house as everything needed for the pool can be kept in your shed. It will also give you a place to keep other seasonal items over the winter months! If you choose a model like the one pictured above from Classic Buildings, you will also have plenty of extra space for your family and guests to change out of their wet things. That’s more good news for your home!
Classic Buildings can also customize your pool shed to match your home. They can also include amenities like extra shelving for storage and an electrical package for nighttime swimming or plugging in an extra fridge.

You can enjoy a pool house like this with no down payment and low monthly payments. It can also be professionally delivered poolside to you at no extra charge. Learn how here.

Paint it a fun summer colour and attach some decorative hooks for hanging up your wet towels. Put it on wooden legs or screw it right to your fence. It’s the perfect size for sliding your pool noodles in and out.

Wet towels are always an issue around your pool. They usually end up taking up space hanging on your pool furniture to dry. You can easily solve this problem with a towel tree. The one pictured above was made by Kim Battes’ husband from PVC pipe, but if you aren’t a DIY kind of person, you can simply purchase a coat rack to use instead.

You only need 3 plastic laundry baskets and some heavy-duty glue. Cut the bottoms off of two of the baskets with a utility knife and glue them on top of each other as shown in the picture above. This simple and inexpensive idea comes from Lingoistica.
8. Pool Equipment Storage

It’s important to keep your hoses in good condition so that they don’t get damaged or become a tripping hazard. Here’s a simple and cheap pool storage hack from Pistoncars.com to keep them tidy throughout the pool season. Simply attach heavy-duty hooks to the side of your wooden fence and use some chains to tie them up. Chains work well as you can adjust the length needed to wrap around your rolled up hose. Criss-crossing bungee cords on hooks on your fence will give you a spot to safely store larger pool equipment. Once the colder weather arrives, you can use this same idea on the inside walls of your wooden pool storage shed or garage.
