It could include resurfacing pool deck surrounds areas, updating lighting, adding a swim-up bar, and maybe adding some cool water features. Whatever it is that you think would make your pool area better, it is essential to know your options.
Safe and Stunning Pool Decking
As you walk into the pool area, the first thing that you see is the pool deck that surrounds the swimming pool. As much as it is vital to make it look stunning, it has to be safe. Decorative concrete offers a pool decking solutions that combines beauty, durability and low maintenance (when sealed correctly stamped concrete will resist harsh chemicals, water exposure, and fading).
We suggest mixing in a non-skid grit additive to the sealer to prevent your deck from getting slippery when wet.
Decorative Lighting Fixtures
Pool lighting can make a pool area look more dramatic and enticing for night swimming and pool parties and just for ambiance. There are many ways you can integrate lighting in the pool area. The traditional ones are those found on the deck. They could be lampposts, hanging lights, and more. For the swimming pool, LED lights can be installed underwater, or you may like floating LED lights. These are all energy-efficient, offering more brightness and are safe to use.
Fire and water features will not only make your pool area beautiful, but they also add more activities, therefore, making it more enjoyable. Fire pits are a great source of heat and illumination. You can use it during the day and most especially in the evening.
You will need to consider the proportion and scale when selecting most of these as you will want to be sure it is not too large. You will also need to find whether you want it to be more geometric or freeform in shape, and if you are thinking of using rocks will you want real or faux?
Swim Up Bars
If you are looking to create a resort setting in your backyard them adding a swim-up bar is a great idea. For years they have been a favorite hang out at tropical resorts, and they are gaining popularity in residential backyards.
It is easy to acquire a dreamy pool oasis as long as you have a clear idea of what you want. Also, you need to consider your budget, the size of your pool area, and how it will add value to your home, your property, and your life. When all of these come together, like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle, there will be no room for regrets.
