If there’s one thing that’s on most people’s minds when it comes to buying a home in Brisbane, it appears that it is a swimming pool. Fair enough, when you consider the subtropical climate we enjoy. But what good is a swimming pool if you don’t have an outdoor living area alongside, which is why a Brisbane pergola also ranks high for would-be homeowners.
The popularity of swimming pools in Brisbane
A recent article in the Financial Review has cast light on the popularity of swimming pools for new home buyers. The article highlighted that the search term ‘pool’ ranked as the top keyword for the fourth year in a row on the Domain website Australia-wide. Searches for homes with a pool rose by 3.9 per cent in the current year.
The article also revealed that nation-wide, the number of Australians living in homes with a pool or spa is now 14 per cent, up one per cent from a few years ago. As for the location for the highest rate of pool or spa ownership? You guessed it, Brisbane led the pack with a massive 19 per cent.
Brisbane pergola and pool a match made in heaven
As we highlighted in the introduction, there is something better than having a Brisbane home with a swimming pool or spa. That’s having a Brisbane home with a pool or spa and a pergola.
Having a pergola adjacent to your home’s swimming pool is a strategic addition that can significantly enhance your outdoor living experience. The combination of pool and pergola creates a synergy of aesthetics, comfort and functionality, transforming your backyard into a haven of relaxation and entertainment.
A pergola offers a shaded area adjacent to the pool, providing a comfortable space to relax, dine, unwind and supervise the kids while still being close to the water. It offers refuge from the sun’s intense rays, allowing you to spend more time outdoors without worrying about excessive sun exposure. Beyond shielding from the sun, a pergola can also offer shelter during light rain or windy days.
A well-designed pergola can significantly elevate the visual appeal of your pool area. It adds a touch of sophistication, creating an inviting atmosphere that complements the natural beauty of your outdoor space.
A pergola can be designed to blend seamlessly with your landscaping, using materials and styles that harmonize with your home’s architecture and garden design. It becomes an integral part of your outdoor aesthetics, enhancing the overall charm of your property.
Pool + pergola + Brisbane = increased home value
If there’s one thing the Financial Review highlights, is that if you have a pool at your Brisbane home, it will be attractive when it comes time to put your home on the market. The same goes for a well-designed and built pergola.
A thoughtfully designed and well-maintained pergola can add significant value to your property. It enhances the overall appeal and functionality of your outdoor space, making it more enticing to potential buyers if you decide to sell in the future.
