As a homeowner, there are often home improvement projects to work on to revamp your place of residence and make it the perfect abode. When you’re a homeowner who also owns a pool (or is considering buying one), your backyard pool space is an extension of your home—a “backyard room.” So why have a pool space that is just so-so when it can have that “wow” factor and be a stunning and beautiful addition to your home that you love spending time in? To get you excited for home improvement projects for your pool space, we’ve put together a list of the coolest trends.
1. Deck-Out Your Deck
All pools have pool decks, and there are so many options when it comes to the style and materials. It all depends on your style and preference! When purchasing a pool, consider what kind of decking you’ll want to have like concrete, pavers or natural stone. It doesn’t stop at the deck itself though—you can revamp your pool deck easily (and quickly) by adding some potted plants or trees, or nice landscaping around the edges.
2. Outdoor Kitchens
If you’re looking for a home improvement idea that is good for entertaining, increases the value of your home, saves on utility bills, expands your living space and enhances the flavor of your food, look no further than an outdoor kitchen! Pool owners enjoy having outdoor kitchens because it also allow to enjoy your guests pool-side while preparing food—plus you can add a bar for easy drink-making. What does an outdoor kitchen normally include?
– BBQ Grill and/or Oven
– Prep Surface
– Ceiling Fan
– Chairs / Bar Stools
– Entertainment System
– Food Storage
When you’re enjoying the pool in the summer, it can get HOT. Having an enjoyable space to cool off is important. Plus, a patio can become an awesome hangout spot. In addition to increasing the value of your home and making it more desirable, the right patio design can be pretty swanky. Here are some tips for a pimped-out patio.
– Add a fire pit
– Add a ceiling fan
– Create ambiance with beautiful lighting fixtures
– Decorate with styled rugs, pillows and throws
