Not only does a pool offer welcome relief during the hot Australian summers, it also looks great in your outdoor area and having the right lighting can really take the aesthetic to the next level. If you’re thinking of updating your pool lighting, you might be wondering where to start. As experts in pool parts and accessories, including a full range of pool lights, we’re here to share our tops of lighting for your pool area.
1. Invest in quality
There are so many pool lighting options available on the market and it can be tempting to settle for a more budget option. However, remember that in many cases you get what you pay for and a poor quality product isn’t going to last the distance. Consider investing in LED lights as they’re long lasting and energy efficient.
2. Think about safety
While you want to get the ambience of the pool area right, you need to also consider safety and visibility. Make sure the area is well lit so you can see what’s going on at night and so people using the pool can see any hazards. For example, the steps leading into the pool should be well lit.
3. Highlight features
Lighting can be used to great effect in the pool area to highlight certain features and bring life to the area. If you have a water feature, a well-placed LED light can make it stand out. Lighting can also be used to highlight trees and other plants to add interest.
4. Light the way
If you have garden surrounding the pool, remember to incorporate lighting as both a practical feature and to make your garden more a feature. Remember to use lighting along pathways and steps to guide people to the pool and ensure they don’t go off course.
5. Have some fun
These days, there are plenty of lighting options which allow you to have some fun in your pool area. There are LED lighting options which comes in various colours and, while white and blue are still the most common choices, you can really get creative. If you’re not convinced about permanent coloured lighting, there are pool lighting options which allow you to adjust the colour according to your mood so you have the best of both worlds.
