Five Reasons to Install a Home Swimming Pool and Embrace the Staycation Trend

The concept of a “holiday at home”, or “staycation”, has gained tremendous popularity in the UK in recent years. And what better way to elevate your staycation experience than by installing a luxurious swimming pool right in your garden? At Guncast, we specialise in designing, building and maintaining exquisite swimming pools that bring the holiday vibes to your doorstep.

  1. A home swimming pool offers unmatched convenience

With a home swimming pool, you have 24/7 access to relaxation and rejuvenation. No need to pack bags, travel, or deal with crowded beaches. Your private paradise awaits you at any time, ensuring unmatched convenience and peace of mind.

When it comes to convenience, Guncast can design a swimming pool tailored precisely to your needs, lifestyle, property, and taste. Concerned about compromising on space? Why not upgrade your swimming pool project to include a moving floor design? With a simple press of a button, the swimming pool floor gracefully ascends, seamlessly converting the pool into an ideal space for entertainment or exercise. The swimming pool floor can be custom-designed to effortlessly support any desired weight capacity.

  1. Add a personal touch to your property with bespoke luxury swimming pool design

The specialists at Guncast understand that luxury is personal. Our expert team will collaborate with you, from design concept to installation, to create a bespoke swimming pool that perfectly matches your taste, style, and lifestyle. From elegant designs to premium features, such as counter current technology, massage jets, and custom lighting, your home swimming pool becomes a reflection of your unique vision and style.

Take your journey to personalised luxury one step further with the addition of a dedicated wellness area. Guncast is the selected UK partner for KLAFS products, and has completed a number of sauna, spa and wellness projects around the world for both domestic and commercial use. By consulting the Guncast expert, adding a sauna to your swimming pool project couldn’t be easier, and there are plenty of options available. For example, both the TORNI sauna and TALO sauna can be individually adapted to fit virtually any garden space.

The new KLAFS TARAS outdoor sauna is also available from Guncast, in a range of finishes, to suit any surroundings. It is at home on large plots of land with lots of garden space, and an ideal sauna for smaller balconies, terraces, or roof terraces. With Guncast, you don’t have to compromise – only customise.
