If you already have a great backyard swimming pool but are looking for some ways to freshen it up and or introduce something new, we have some great suggestions for you! Just like all luxury items, your swimming pool requires regular maintenance and occasional repairs and upgrades. If you decide on some ornate or high-tech additions, you’ll also be creating a more high-maintenance swimming pool. Like any high-maintenance item, many consider luxurious extras to be worth the trouble. If you’re okay with that, no worries. But if you’re not, consider yourself forewarned.
Fashionable Swimming Pool Floors
We absolutely adore the more ornate swimming pool floor options we’ve been seeing lately. But you should know that even the most simple tile floor will create some added potential for maintenance. For one thing, they can demonstrate weaknesses and crack over time. Tile swimming pool floors, like tile floors in any space, can also be more difficult to clean, with grout lines that easily show dirt. Another trendy option, stained concrete, may not be ideal for high-traffic spaces, because it can wear more quickly than other swimming pool floor options; it also lacks the kind of slip-resistant surface that helps maintain safety. So as you create your wish list, keep these kinds of potential issues in mind.
Swimming Pool Automation
If you’re the kind of person who’s fascinated with technology and already have a fully automated smart home, the creation of a smart pool is the next logical step! Swimming pool automation can allow you to transform your existing swimming pool or spa into a high-tech, space-age wonder. Imagine how you’ll impress your friends, colleagues, family, and more, using a single app on your phone or tablet to create the perfect ambiance with lights and music, turn on the heater, start the spa, manage chemical levels, control your pool pump, and even get robotic cleaners going once you’re done.
Swimming Pool Accessories
There’s no end to the kinds of toys, seating, and other accessory items you can use to enhance your swimming pool and the space surrounding it. Some new ones that are currently trending include fire bowls for nighttime swimming and sun shades for during the day. Multiple fire bowls can be used to line your pool’s perimeter and add a warm, natural glow. Sun shades come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, providing the practical benefit of shade along with the visual appeal of an added pop color.
To decide on the kind of addition that makes sense for your outdoor oasis, think about your ideal poolside event and work from there.
