If you are planning a backyard swimming pool, chances are you have thought about different ways that you can decorate not only the pool, but also the area around the pool itself.
Here are some useful tips that you can make note of in order to ensure that your design turns out beautifully.
- USE A CUSTOM POOL SHAPE
Most backyard pools are generally shaped round or rectangular. One tip to consider following is to be creative and go with a different kind of shape for your pool. Take some time to draw out some shape ideas that you like and discuss them with your family or a friend.
Once you have a shape choice in mind, speak to your local swimming pool supply store to find out how much it would cost to bring your custom design to life.
- PLACE A DECK AREA NEAR YOUR POOL
Whether you have an above-ground or in-ground pool, it's always a good idea to consider building a deck of some kind near it.
Decks are a good place to provide seating for your family and friends who come over for an outdoor gathering, and they are also great additions to your pool area.
- PLACE A FOUNTAIN OR WATERFALL IN YOUR POOL
According to principles of feng shui, fountains and waterfalls can help with your home's energy and your personal strength. The same thing can apply to your pool. Consider having either a fountain or waterfall placed in or around your pool to increase that relaxing and luxurious feel.
- CONSIDER A POOL/SPA COMBO
One thing people love to do on occasion is relax in a nice hot tub, whether it's to de-stress from a hard day at work or just to unwind from a day of doing things around the house.
Another useful tip would be to consider installing a larger pool that can also be combined with a heated hot tub so that you can get the best of both worlds, so to speak.
- CONSTRUCT A POOL SHED AND CABANA
Pool sheds and cabanas, if you can afford them, are two important things that you should consider having constructed near your pool.
Pool sheds are useful for storing cleaning items such as chlorine and nets. Cabanas, like decks, can be mainly used for a covered general seating area, as well as a bar if you wish to serve drinks to your guests outside while they enjoy a dip in the pool. Cabanas can also house bathrooms, which can cut down on people dripping water on the floors of your home in case they need to use the bathroom.
These useful tips can help ensure that your pool becomes the hot-spot of your home, especially on a hot summer day. Click here for more information and pool ideas.Share
