Awesome Options for Poolside Dining

Here in the Tampa Bay area of Florida, we are fortunate to be able to make the most of the outdoors year-round. What better way to enjoy time spent outside on an everyday basis than by taking a meal beside the pool? At Tampa Bay Pools, our experienced design team can suggest the perfect outdoor living set-up to suit your style aesthetic and your lifestyle. Following are several great options.

Traditional Dining

Perhaps the most comfortable and familiar method of outdoor dining is the traditional patio table and chairs. In a wide range of shapes, sizes, and styles, there is a set to suit every taste and every space. And with the availability of super-plush cushions in the new breed of weather-resistant outdoor fabrics, you can dine in perfect, luxurious comfort!

Take that luxury to the next level by having us install a custom, fully-roofed patio cover. Either attached to your home or free-standing, a patio cover gives your family and friends a place of shelter from the sun's rays, as well as a haven from rain showers. We can also easily add such amenities as lighting and ceiling fans for extra comfort day or night.

For those who prefer to let a little sunshine in, an open-air pergola may be the way to go. Often seen trailing flowering vines, this is a great way to tie your outdoor dining area seamlessly into the natural surroundings.

Bar Seating

Another popular choice is bar seating. Usually built into the back side of an outdoor kitchen counter, bar seating is a more casual, come-and-go style of outdoor dining. This may be perfect for the family that enjoys grilling or smoking, and provides a perfect environment for friends and family to interact with the chef or help with preparations.

An outdoor kitchen can be built in just about any setting. From a simple built-in grill with a bit of countertop space beside to a full-service kitchen complete with sink, refrigerator, kegerator, and pizza oven, the possibilities are limited only by your space and preference.

Swim-Up Seating

For those who simply can't bear to be pulled away from the water, swim-up dining is the way to go! The best of both worlds, this allows diners to be served in the casual comfort of cool water. Nothing says "lounging in luxury" like sipping your favorite beverage from a table built right into the pool. The Tampa Bay pool above even has an umbrella sleeve installed in the center of the table so swimmers can sip in the shade!

Whichever style of outdoor dining represents your idea of perfection, the professionals at Tampa Bay Pools have the knowledge and experience to tailor a design specifically to your liking. Give us a call today for your free design consultation, and find yourself dining in style outside in no time!
