Jazz Up Your Pool With These Inexpensive Tips
People often equate “pool restoration” with “expensive,” but there are many budget-friendly ways to improve your pool. Finding the ones that suit your particular pool issues can be an involved process, but if you’re looking for affordable ways to increase your pool’s appeal, try some of these:
Colored Pool Finish
One of the fastest ways to make a swimming pool really pop is an unusually colored finish. This creates a dynamic look to the traditional pool scene and allows for more variation in other pool décor. Using something as simple as a green pool finish instead of blue will make the pool and patio area seem striking and interesting.
Adding a Tile Border
Coping around the edge of the pool doesn’t have to be the same color or even the same material as the rest of the patio for in ground pools. Employing a different color, style, or material for the coping will delineate the point where the pool is imminent, while also bringing contrast to the entire look.
Employing Luxurious Poolside Seating
Don’t underestimate the power of outdoor seating. If you are using ordinary patio chairs and loungers, your pool will look ordinary. But springing for more expensive, but more interesting poolside seating will transform your pool into a swimming area that radiates luxury.
Lining the Pool Edge with Plants
Lining the edge of the pool with exotic and colorful plants will brighten the entire exterior of the house, highlighting the pool area with natural, organic color and a lovely scent. This is also a more inexpensive way of delineating the pool from the rest of the backyard.
Keeping it Spic ‘n’ Span
Pool cleanliness is the ultimate in inexpensive ways to enhance a swimming pool. With clear waters and a clean pool floor, the entire area looks better and is primed for the addition of various décor items to brighten the back patio.
This is only a small sampling of ideas. Be creative and research other options to enhance the feel and style of your pool. So many options exist which are inexpensive. Often, DIY projects save a great deal of money, so don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zone and get your hands dirty.
Every minor change can have a massive effect, so make sure to test the change on a small section of the pool area before investing in a huge overhaul to ensure successful improvements.
