In our first article, we discussed the importance of adding as many safety features as possible to your pool to help keep your family and guests secure while they’re in and around your pool. Now, we’ll turn our attention to another topic: remodeling to improve your pool’s curb appeal.
Remodeling Options Designed to Enhance Your Pool’s Appearance
Whether you’re planning to sell your home or you just want it to have a classier, more aesthetically pleasing look, there’s plenty of fresh ways you can upgrade your pool. Here are a few eye-catching ideas you may want to consider.
Add Water Features to Create Your Very Own Piece of Paradise
If your pool is a bit generic looking, why not give it some pizzazz with a few water features? You could add some fountains, streams, jets, bubblers, waterfalls, or even a romantic grotto to mimic the look of a tropical lagoon! The specific water features you choose should match the look you’re going for in your pool area. For example, if you want to go with a natural look, consider some gentle nature-inspired waterfalls or even a lazy river. If you’re going for a modern, striking appearance, some angular walls of water and dramatic jets and fountains would do the trick.
Include Lighting Features for a Colorful Night-Time Light Show
Along with including your water features, you can add even more charm and character to your backyard oasis when you add enhanced lighting to your pool’s interior and exterior areas. For example, include color-changing LED lights inside the pool. Add even more color-changing LED lights to your water features. You can buy them now with an option to shine one color continuously, to change colors, or to give off a clear light. With these options, you can change up the look of your pool depending on your mood or whatever special occasion you may be celebrating.
When it comes to your patio or deck area, you can add lamps, sconces, or pathway lighting for extra ambiance and increase visibility for your evening pool parties. Tiki torches are the perfect way to create a festive atmosphere for your next backyard barbecue. You can also add strings of twinkling white or colored holiday lights for special occasions or as regular accent lighting. For safety, make sure not to hang your strands of holiday lights directly over the pool or close enough to the pool that they would risk falling into the water. Also, be careful to secure them firmly in place wherever you do decide to hang them.
Another great place to add lighting is in your landscaping. You’d be amazed at how much a few carefully placed accent lights illuminating some of the lovely bushes, shrubs, and trees near your pool can add to the overall look of your pool area. They also double as an extra safety feature. Compared to many other remodeling ideas, lighting is an inexpensive way to transform the look of your pool for the better.
