Refreshing Ways to Give Your Pool a Makeover
As you look out at the beautiful, clear water, you imagine jumping in and being transported to an exotic island, but then as often happens, your eyes make contact with everything that is wrong with your pool. Before summer is in full effect, you can easily give your pool a makeover and create that tropical oasis that you can’t wait to jump into. The following tips will help give you easy ideas on what you can change about your pool to make it the best on the block.
Replace the Liner or Resurface Your Pool
One of the first ways that you can add a new look to your pool is to replace the liner on the inside or resurface the interior. Replacing the liner in the pool can help add new texture to it and create a shimmery look inside. The liner can wear over time and rip so before you are left with a shredded mess, start looking for a replacement.
If your pool does not use a liner, but is fiberglass or another material, consider resurfacing the interior of the pool. Whether you choose to go with a stone look, pebbles, or something else, the new surface will make the pool pop and stand out.
Change the Shape of Your Pool
Another thing to consider is changing the shape of your pool. If you have a round pool and you are just simply tired of the circle, consider a kidney shaped pool, oval, or even an L-shaped pool. If you have an in-ground pool, it won’t take much to have the pool switched out for another one. The change in the shape of your pool will transform your entire backyard as well.
Give the Decking Around the Pool a Facelift
Another quick and easy way to change the look of your pool and outdoor area is to revamp the decking. Over time, your decking may become discolored, faded, or even damaged. A replacement surface can take an ugly decking to fabulous in no time.
Luckily for you, in today’s world you have an almost endless variety of choices from decorative concrete to stone pavers and even simple stone. Your color options are practically limitless as well, which means you can really transform your outdoor area almost overnight!
Enhancements Are a Necessity
Okay, so maybe they aren’t a necessity, but they can make your pool area stand out like no other. By adding simple lighting elements inside and around your pool, you can brighten the area at night and create a stunning nighttime scene.
Other enhancements such as a fire pit on your patio or a cascading waterfall in the pool can help set the scene for an awesome BBQ. Fountain bubblers and jets are two more enhancements that look great and add class to even a simple pool.
When it comes to enhancements and extras, think about what look you really want and then go with it. For instance, if you want that tropical getaway, consider adding a tranquil waterfall and then surrounding the pool with foliage and decorative rocks. The only other thing you’d need is a cute bathing suit and a pina colada.
Cleaning Tools and Equipment
Lastly, you can give your pool maintenance routine a makeover for the most important person using your pool: you! With some of the latest technology, you can make taking care of your pool almost as relaxing as swimming in it. For instance, an energy-efficient pump or an automatic pool cleaner can help keep your electric bill down and your pool clean.
Whether you want to make some minor changes to your pool or you want the entire pool makeover performed, you will find that the process is easy when you know what look you want. The above five ideas and steps are quick ways to make your pool look great for the summertime.
