Top Ideas for Pool Renovation
The temperatures across Arizona are starting to drop, which means you likely aren’t thinking much about your swimming pool. But when the weather turns colder is the perfect time for you to start thinking about what you’d like to have for your pool for the following spring. After all, you don’t want to be involved in pool renovating when it’s prime time for swimming!
Add Some Beautiful Tile
The right tile can really transform your pool. The material and color tile you choose can create exactly the look you want. For example, if you choose small, colored glass tile, you can create a beautiful mosaic that seems to shimmer over the water. Or if you choose rust-colored travertine tiles, you can make your pool look like it’s straight out of a Spanish hacienda.
You can tile the steps, the bottom of the pool or just the strip along the top edge of your pool. Therefore, you can give your pool a facelift, or you can just add a mosaic to the bottom of the pool to freshen up the look.
Resurface the Pool
The surface of your pool has a big impact on the way it looks – and even the way the water looks. Over time, the surface can wear down and look dirty, jagged and old. By resurfacing your pool’s interior, you can make your pool look newer and – depending on the type of surface you choose – much nicer.
Resurfacing can include a simple renewal of the surface, or it can mean choosing an entirely new finish. Popular options for pool renovating include stone finishes, pebbles and smooth plaster.
Upgrade Your Patio or Deck
The sitting area around your pool is part of the total package, and if your patio or deck is ugly or in disrepair, it will make your pool look the same. Consider upgrading your patio or deck to bring out the best features of your pool and to create a beautiful refuge in your back yard.
If you have a deck now, you may just need to sand and refinish it or replace a few of the board. Likewise, if you have a patio, you may be able to have it professionally cleaned to renew it. However, you may want to consider making additional upgrades, such as replacing a concrete patio with stone pavers or replacing your deck with a more beautiful wood type. You can also add features to your deck or patio such as seating, a fire pit, a grilling area, planters, and water features. Talk with your custom pool builder about what’s possible and what features might look best alongside your pool.
Add Water Features
Water features can take your pool from ordinary to extraordinary. The only water feature most pools have is the water inside them. Imagine how your pool would look with a fountain right in the middle or a beautiful waterfall cascading down rocks at one end. There are many possibilities to get exactly the look you want.
Fountains, waterfalls, sprinklers, jets and more are available water features. You’ll need to talk to a custom pool builder to understand what your pool design can support and what water features would look best with your current layout and your backyard.
Get Creative with Lighting
Lighting can have a major impact on your pool’s look. You can have lighting installed under the water, around the pool’s edge, or on your patio or deck. You can also work with your pool designer to put lighting in the backyard for nighttime swimming.
If you want to go more advanced, you can even get lights in different colors and lighting that goes through different effects. You can create an underwater light show right in your pool.
Pool remodeling is a great way to get more from your pool without having to start from scratch. You can get a fresh new look in a short amount of time and for a much lower investment than a new pool.
