Put a Touch of Luxury into Your Backyard Pool
<p> Enhance your pool with easy accessories that will turn your backyard into an oasis.</p>
As if the idea of a backyard pool wasn't luxurious enough, now there are accessories you can add to your pool to make it even better. The great thing about pool accessories is you can get a high end look without paying a high end price in many cases. By adding a simple water feature or a few LED lights, you can create a beautiful outdoor oasis without breaking the bank. Here are five fabulous additions for your pool area that will make your backyard the gem of the neighborhood.
Lighting is one of the easiest ways to dress up your pool for nighttime swimming. LED lights and fiber optics are two of the most popular options in pool lighting today. The biggest advantage to these lighting choices is that you can bring a rainbow of color to your swimming experience. Choose colors for the seasons, or use a palette to coordinate with the exterior of your home. Nothing will add ambiance and class to your pool area than an array of colored lights outside and underwater.
Water features like fountains and waterfalls add a twofold benefit to your swimming pool. First, they are aesthetically pleasing and second, the sound of running water is a soothing sound that promotes relaxation. Keep in mind that water features will require a separate pump to run, which will up your electric bill a bit. Choose water features that can be turned off and on as you want to use them to save on the energy usage.
Just imagine climbing out of your swimming pool to cozy up next to a crackling fire. Fire pits are a huge addition to many yards today because they provide a place for relaxing as a fire for roasting marshmallows. These pits also offer unsurpassed ambiance to your outdoor living space. You can opt for a portable fire pit that can be moved to whatever spot your guests choose to congregate. Or you can go for a fire pit that is build right into your patio for a lovely look and easy access.
You may not have the extra cash for a hot tub once you install your swimming pool. Now you can enjoy the spa experience with a floating hot pod that bobs along right in your own swimming pool. This portable spa uses the hot water from your pool heater and pumps it through jets so those inside experience a true hot tub treatment. The unit is easy to assemble and seats up to four adults at a time.
A shower is always a welcome addition to the pool area and today there are many stylish options to choose from. You can add a trendy towel rack and even a cabana to complete the look. For larger areas that can accommodate such an addition, a pool shower will keep swimmers outdoors instead of tracking pool water through your home.
Those little extras will turn your pool area from fun to fabulous. Check out what's available in pool luxury today and create the outdoor oasis you have been dreaming of.
