Properly designed landed properties with a swimming pool can make their home have an additional fun activity.

MOW Interior will share the practicality and tips of having a swimming pool in your bungalow estate.
- RECREATION: It doesn’t matter whether you live in a cool or warm climate; you can enjoy your swimming pool every day. This is because the weather can not place restrictions on the use of your pool. In warm weather, jump in and enjoy the water! In cooler temperature (year-end Singapore), play around with your children in the float or put in toys that can float. This lifestyle is definitely desirable amongst the high net-worth customers in Singapore.
PROS: Adults and children can benefit from the exercise that swimming pool gives. You don’t have to exert too much exercise for your body to get the benefits of it.
