Maybe your poolscape doesn’t need a huge overhaul this summer, but you want to add a few things to keep it fresh. With the landscaping, hardscaping, and decking you already have in place, these smaller details can help complete the look. Whether your main goal is relaxation, exercise, or family fun, you can quickly and easily update your pool and its surroundings in a way that will keep it from seeming “so last season.”
Updating or adding to your collection of outdoor furniture can be a fairly low-commitment way to enhance your outdoor space. From lounge chairs to hammocks, picnic tables to gliders, you can take your pick from a variety of furniture styles, colors, and arrangements. If your goal is to accommodate a larger gathering, you’ll want to keep that in mind. If you want to offer privacy for smaller, more intimate groups, you’ll arrange furnishings appropriately. From environmentally friendly natural wood and bamboo to synthetic materials, and from brightly colored to patterned textiles, materials and styles certainly vary.
As important as the space surrounding your backyard swimming pool may be, let’s not forget the focal point! Inflatables have come a long way since beach balls and inner tubes! There are so many options to choose from, for adults and kids alike. Since kids often get first consideration when it comes to these little extras, you can surprise your over-21 guests with a beverage buoy and maybe an inflatable hammock like this one designed to allow for sharing – which comes with a canopy to offer protection from direct sunlight.

From towel warmers to poolside TVs, fire features, and mood lighting, there are many luxury-level details you can easily add to enhance the ambiance and versatility of your outdoor space.
