Incorporating a modern indoor pool into your home design is typically viewed on a scale of grand opulence, but can be an amazing and fun addition. Indoor swimming pools are rapidly becoming more popular because of their numerous advantages over outdoor ones, such as privacy, year round use independent of inclement weather and they stay cleaner! On the downside to these advantages is the sheer amount of money involved and the vast amount of extra space needed to incorporate this design. Some people just create an addition and make the indoor pool more like a solarium. Some indoor pools are designed more minimalist and sleek and others are designed with a theme.
Themes are a fun way to create an escape right in the comfort of your own home. These pools are much more extravagant and will vary based on space restrictions and personal preferences. You can incorporate tropical plants, waterfalls set in natural rocks and lighting to enhance the overall ambiance. The first four images displayed (including the one above) are a collection of one such project that was one homeowner’s dream to create a tropical getaway. With so many styles to chose from, here is a stunning collection of 50 modern indoor pools that will leave you feeling inspired and maybe even a little awestruck!

This 75 foot long pool winds its way along the lower level of the house. The owner wanted a lap pool running through a tropical garden with palm trees and bananas as well as views of the sky. The living spaces have been arranged around that.
Set on a hilltop with 360 degree views this house opens itself up to the outside and is an excellent expression of timber and stone construction.

In the evenings, Golden Rays’ picturesque terraces are a perfect place to enjoy an inspiring Mediterranean sunset and a glass of the renowned – and locally produced – Babic wine.
Aesthetically, Golden Rays is a welcome respite from the many uninspired hotels and resorts that dot the Croatian coastline. Rather than overpower the cliffside and detract from the area’s distinct natural beauty, architects opted for environmental harmony and hand selected design elements.
Each of the seven villas features a green roof and lush atrium garden, which allows the spacious, multi-tiered retreat to blend more seamlessly into the local flora. The villas are also partially constructed into the hillside and designers were careful to ensure each unit’s two-car garage became an interesting design element, rather than the typical aesthetic dead space.

Even the furnishings are reminiscent of Golden Rays’ surroundings. Rich designer pieces in natural fabrics and textures emulate the outdoor environment, while the classic, earthy tones, crisp white walls and natural wood floors contrast beautifully against the seascape. Additionally, the floating staircases, engaging art pieces and interesting architectural accents come together to create a fashionable, yet relaxing, Croatian retreat.
