This summer, your poolscape might not require a major redesign, but you may still want to add a few items to keep it interesting and “fresh.” These minor accents can help finish the aesthetic with the landscape, hardscaping, and decking you already have in place. Whether your primary objective is rest and relaxation, physical activity, or just good ol’ fashioned family fun, you can quickly and simply “refresh” your pool and the area around it to avoid making it appear “so last season.”
Furniture for the Area Around the Pool
A relatively low-commitment option to improving your outside environment is by updating or expanding your collection of outdoor furniture. You can choose from a number of furniture types, colors, and combinations, including hammocks, picnic tables, and gliders. When deciding what types of furniture to buy, consider what your hosting objectives are; do you desire to hold large gatherings or just small parties? The size of your pool parties will directly relate to how much furniture you purchase as well as how you place the furniture; seating will be placed much closer together if you wish to provide for more private gatherings. Materials and fashions surely vary, ranging from eco-friendly natural wood and bamboo to synthetic materials with vividly colored and patterned cloths.
Remember the focus point is your swimming pool, even though the area around your backyard pool may be important. Since the early days of beach balls and inner tubes, inflatables today have advanced significantly. Both adults and children can choose from a wide variety of possibilities. Since youngsters frequently take precedence when it comes to the selection of these little extras, you may pleasantly surprise your over-21 guests with a beverage buoy that holds plentiful cold cans and possibly even an inflatable hammock that is made to be shared and which has a cover to provide shade from the sun.
Luxuries by the Pool
You can add a few luxuries in the area beside the pool for those who prefer to soak up the sun in conversation with their friends as well as for those who desire a break from the water by drying and relaxing in the sun’s rays. Towel warmers, poolside TVs, fire features, and mood lighting are just a few of the luxurious extras you can add to your outdoor space in order to improve its atmosphere and adaptability. Let’s face it: you would have gone camping if you wanted to rough it!
