Swimming pools are backyard oases. They especially come in handy in the summertime when temperatures reach their highest, but heaters make it possible to enjoy them year-round. There are innovative ways to repurpose an old pool if you are tired of the maintenance. We understand the need to reinvent your yard.
While keeping your pool is always an option, you don't have to keep it in its current state. We found some fun ways to make your backyard swimming pool stand out from the rest of the neighborhood.
Revamp the Lights
The lighting of your backyard swimming pool may not be the first feature that comes to mind, but this simple change can add lots of pizzazz. Lighting affects the mood in the rooms of your home, and it's no different outside. LED lights work well in pools because they last for several years. They are also great if you're looking to reduce your energy bill.
Some varieties of LED lights change color, too, so you don't even have to settle on having just one. Try switching up the lights if you're tired of the default white.
Transform Your Pool Into a Lazy River
Lazy rivers aren't only for the waterparks or resorts anymore. The whole family will enjoy this option for some extra rest and relaxation. Believe it or not, you can achieve this at home by keeping these residential lazy river tips in mind. This dynamic form of home improvement is a great way to make your backyard swimming pool stand out from other people's pools in the area.
Add a Slide or Waterfall
The addition of a slide or waterfall has the potential to transform your pool. Children or the young-at-heart can have fun making a big splash when they go down the slide. On the other hand, a waterfall provides a sophisticated touch of tranquility to your outdoor oasis. Either of these choices will add a unique quality to your pool, so you can't go wrong no matter what you decide.
We hope you enjoyed these ideas for reinventing your backyard swimming pool. A simple or elaborate change can give you the variety you're craving.
