Swim Up Bars vs. Built-In Patio Bars for Your Phoenix Backyard Remodel
Your yard is an extension of your home, and you have just as many options for remodeling it as you do your home. You don’t just have to put in new flowers or shrubs; you can dress up your pool, install an outdoor kitchen, add luxury features to your patio, and much, much more.
If you have a pool and a patio, you may feel conflicted about what you want to upgrade first. You have so many options that it can be hard to decide. Swim up bard and built-in patio bars are some of the most popular features for backyard remodeling. But how do you choose?
Here’s a look at how swim up bars and built-in patio bars compare if you are considering custom pool remodeling or patio remodeling for your Phoenix home:
Swim Up Bars
A swim up bar puts an entertainment area right in your pool. When you or your guests want a drink, they can swim over to the poolside bar, grab a drink, and sit on one of the stone seats in the water. You don’t have to get out of the pool and get cold to enjoy a drink or a snack.
There are a lot of benefits to adding a swim bar during your Phoenix custom pool remodeling. To start, you can have a bar right next to your pool without taking up any more space. The bar would be installed right on the border of the water, so it would not extend beyond the pool patio. You can even build a swim up bar directly in the pool if you have enough room.
Phoenix custom pool swim up bars are great for parties. You can keep your guests fed and entertained without breaking up the flow of activities. They are also great for keeping kids hydrated while they are swimming. Kids never want to stop their fun, so with a swim up bar, they can get a drink without having to stop swimming.
Finally, adding a swim up bar to your pool can increase the value of your property, just like any home remodeling project. But unlike other updates, the swim up bar will get you a much higher return on your investment. It creates the look of a luxury resort right in your backyard.
Your Phoenix custom pool builder can help you figure out the right placement and design of your swim up bar to get the right look and right functionality. For example, if you have children, the seats may need to rest a little shorter in the water.

Built-In Patio Bars
With a built-in patio bar, you can create an entertaining space that is independent from your pool. That means that you can use it whether you are having a party with a pool or not, you can use it any time of the year, and your guests who don’t want to swim can use it.
The design on a built-in patio bar is more flexible than a swim up bar. It can be as small or as large as you want it, and it can be anywhere on your patio that there is room. It can have built-in stools, a space for a stove or refrigerator, and just about any kind of stone that you want for the design.
The best built-in patio bars are designed to complement both the patio and the other surrounding elements, such as your pool, your home, and your landscaping. The design will include a blend of style and functionality so that your patio bar serves your guests while also improving the look of your home.
