Now that you’ve just finished building your pool or bought a home with one, you may be thinking of adding a few extras to make it more enjoyable and attractive. Well, the possibilities are endless. How about starting with these four suggestions guaranteed to take your pool experience to the next level?
A glass fence
You probably already know that you’re required by law to create a physical barrier around your pool to keep unsupervised children from getting to the pool area. Go creative with your choice of a fence. You want something both functional and classy. Glass pool fencing is your best option here, owing to its undoubted visual appeal and durability.
A water feature
A water feature on your pool area can instantly enhance the rest of backyard, besides making it more enjoyable to spend time in your pool. Imagine the gorgeous sight and sound of falling water. A hot tub in your pool area provides numerous health benefits. Other water features you can consider include waterfalls, deck jets, water slides and fountain babblers.
Do you spend your evenings on your swimming pool area? Then there’s hardly a more fitting addition to the space than some nice lighting fixtures. There’s a variety to choose from, but you need to base your choices on your pool’s design and color. Think about the shadow effects you want to create as you pick lighting fixtures.
A poolside cabana is a perfect structure to shelter yourself from the sun, wind or rain. It also provides the privacy you need while outdoors. With the right materials, this is one project you can do yourself at home, although it really doesn’t cost much to have a contractor do it for you.
You can make time spent by your swimming pool extra fun by adding several appropriate structures around it. What’s even more, every small addition to your pool increases the value of your home.
