There are so many different features that you can add to your pool to truly customize it and make it as enjoyable and convenient as possible. And one increasingly popular feature of custom Austin swimming pools is a sun shelf. This handy trait allows you to enjoy the sun while keeping cool, without having to fully immerse yourself in the pool water.
With the sizzling temperatures that are common in Austin every summer, it can be torturous to sunbathe on the deck without some form of cooling agent. And the perfect solution is to add a sun shelf to your pool.
While the intention of a sun shelf may be for you to be able to sunbathe in perfect comfort, it can also be the ideal spot for little children and pets to frolic without the fear of getting into waters that are a bit too deep. These areas provide a safe area for little ones to enjoy the water.
You may also find that your new sun shelf may become the “it” lounge spot for you and your family. Your backyard may be equipped with lounge chairs and outdoor furniture, but everyone will quickly discover that the most comfortable spot to gather and hang out is on the sun deck.
You can even take things to a new level and add umbrellas over top for some shade, as well as permanent lounge chairs that will allow you and your family to enjoy some much needed relaxation this summer. Bubbling water features can also be a great add-on to provide some soothing sounds and a gentle massage while cooling off.
