A pool provides welcome relief from the hot and humid days of summer, but if the pool came with the home it may need to be updated. The same is true if a homeowner’s tastes have changed. Pool renovations can be expensive, but there are ways to change a pool and make it more interesting, even for individuals on a budget.
Highly cost-effective, LED lights are efficient to operate and can also function as a safety measure at the pool. The lights use little electricity, are available in any color desired, and can be installed below the pool water line or anywhere surrounding the pool. They’re great for setting a mood and providing pool safety. With technological advances, many features can be automated or operated via a phone app.
Fire and water may not normally mix, but many pool owners are installing poolside fire pits. The features set on a pedestal on the edge of the pool and small waterfalls can even be incorporated into the design.
Homeowners can bring one of the most popular resort features to their own backyard with a tanning ledge, also known as a Baja shelf. It’s a flat, shallow surface on the edge of the pool that’s usually about 6 inches below the water line. They provide a way for individuals to enjoy the pool without completely immersing themselves.
While water features aren’t necessarily the least expensive addition to a swimming pool, they certainly make an impression on guests and increase the “wow” factor. Homeowners can add waterfalls and cascades, along with fountains and sprinklers. Keep in mind that water features do increase the cost of maintaining a pool due to the electricity required to operate them and pool water will see an increased rate of evaporation.
