Whether your existing pool simply isn’t functional or just is in desperate need of an update, a pool renovation can really transform your outdoor area. Of course, if you’re going to the effort of renovating, you may as well make it look as amazing as possible! At Pool Assist, we’ve seen our fair share of pool renovations and today we’ll be sharing our top tips for taking your swimming pool renovations to the next level.
1. Get creative with lighting
There’s nothing like some well-placed lighting to really make your new pool area stand out and during your renovations is the perfect opportunity to get the effect you want. LED lights are popular options and also have the benefit of being energy efficient. Remember to install lights in the pool itself – these days, there are plenty of automated options which allow you to change the colour. Our main advice would be to not settle for a cheaper lighting option. If you pay a bit more, it’s much more likely to last the distance.
2. Style around the pool
Although it’s natural that a lot of your planning will go into the look of the pool itself, don’t neglect the area surrounding it. Think about what you can do to update your pool area – you can always go online for some inspiration. New stone paving around the pool can be a perfect feature and timber decking is another popular choice. Updating your daggy old pool fence can also make a massive difference and glass fences are great for opening up a smaller space. Style it up with some planter boxes to add some greenery to your new space and try to incorporate some shade and a couple of lounge chairs to really turn it into an escape.
3. Update the interior
If you’re happy with the shape of your pool but it’s looking a little tired, you can simply update the interior. There are a few options to resurfacing your pool depending upon whether it’s a concrete, fibreglass or vinyl pool. There are lots of different colours and finishes to choose from. Replacing worn out tiles can also have an incredible effect and give a luxurious feel. Remember that you don’t need to tile the entire pool to achieve a striking look.
