2020 has made us appreciate our stay at home with a renewed perspective. One addition to our house that not only adds a great deal of aesthetic appeal but also encourages you to get some much-needed exercise is a swimming pool. When done right, the entire pool area can become your bubble to rewind after a long busy day or chill on the weekends with your family. So, make use of all the time you have to plan for a new pool or use these ideas to perk up your Burleigh Pools Burleigh Heads.
1. Surreal Pool Lighting
One thing most people forget to focus on while planning a pool is the lighting, and they regret later. So, you must have your pool constructed by a company that is well versed in the field of pool lighting. LED pool light is a trendy choice and for a good reason. They illuminate your pool in a variety of colors, making it look gorgeous. Another option that lends and equally beautiful look to your pool is LED rope lights. Lights also make it much safer for you to get in the pool when the sun goes down. The main benefit of LEDs is they create a stunning effect while consuming very little power. However, if you happen to be in a rush or on a very tight budget, lighting around the pool area with outdoor fairy-lights can give it a beautiful makeover.
2. A Green Wall of Privacy
A line of plants not only add a refreshing curtain of greenery but can also work as a wall of privacy around your pool area. There are various ways of achieving this. You can recycle old tires and stack them up to create raised beds or invest in sophisticated ceramic plant pots. When it comes to the plants, you can choose from the following options:
- Norway Spruce
- Colorado Blue Spruce
- Green Giant Arborvitae
- Emerald Green Arborvitae
Make sure to keep things well maintained with regular pruning and care, so the green wall stays lush all year round.
3. Accent Plants
Considering greenery, if a green wall is not quite your jam, then get any plant whose look to adore and plant them as accent plants around your pool. A simple, well-trimmed lush lawn is also a great option for those without a green thumb. One easy way to add some fragrance around your pool is by planting sweet-smelling herbs and flowers. Flower beds are also a great way to add a pop of colour to your poolside.
4. A Tiki-bar
It is highly unlikely that you will be going to Hawaii anytime soon given the kind of global crisis. Fortunately, it does not take much to give your poolside a Hawaiian makeover. All you need are some quality bamboo bar furniture, outdoor rugs with tropical motifs, umbrellas, and tiki-inspired shot glasses and accessories. Churn up a foolproof pina colada recipe, and you will not miss the Hawaiian beaches this or the coming summer. A free-form pool is, especially great for this project
5. Add A Spa Pool
If you think you have to take your pool dream to the grave because you are running short of space in your house, then check Burleigh Pools on Facebook to gain a better perspective. Spa pools are the epitome of relaxation and can be fit into really awkward small spaces. Moreover, if one already has a traditional pool, it is not much of a hassle to incorporate a new spa pool into the existing pool design.
So, hurry up! Invest it in creating a dream pool oasis for yourself.
