7 Pool Cabana Inspirations (and Planning Our Next Backyard Project)

We had every intention of sharing more backyard progress today, buuuuuuut the universe had other plans as we’ve wrestled a project going awry and a sick kiddo over the weekend.

But actually, it’s okay. Because I didn’t really make time to fully wrap my mind around “the vision” for our next backyard project: a pool cabana.

We just poured fresh concrete in this area beside the pool and will be erecting a pergola to give us much-needed shade out here. Eventually, we plan to do concrete stamping, but we’re not there yet.

And that fence will be replaced soon with a new white one.

Outdoor furniture sells out crazy fast, especially this year, so I pulled together several images as our inspiration to get our game plan ready.

I want the cabana to feel airy, natural, and with plenty of texture. All 7 of these pool cabana inspirations fit the bill!

7 Pool Cabana Inspirations

1. I like the idea of comfy chaise loungers like these.

2. The plants and that rattan pendant in this cabana add so much great texture!

3. More chaise lounger love… and I know we’ll never have practically a jungle surrounding ours, but gosh it’s gorgeous.

4. This example has a wood slat wall we’re thinking will give it a more modern element.

5. This one seems like a great size without taking up too much pool deck room.

6. There will definitely be airy white curtains blowing in the breeze like this dreamy scene.

7. We keep debating between whether to stain a neutral mid-tone or paint white. But I love the warmth of the wood here to make it feel more cozy in contrast with the white fence.

My head is spinning! But however it all comes together, I’ll just be glad to have some shade. Prettiness will be a perk.

Which do you think would work the best?

  1. I like the slat wall stained. I agree that some contrast with the white fence would add visual texture👌! Big frond plants in woven planter baskets would do that too. I can’t wait to see what you do. You and Robert always do such a great job!
