Pool Makeover – Designing Pool Renovations to Fit Your Lifestyle
Pool remodeling allows homeowners to work with an existing pool, while redesigning a space that better fits their taste. Adding a slide for children to play, adding a rock waterfall to create a point of interest, or expanding a surrounding patio to provide entertaining and relaxation space. Changing tiles or plaster color are ways to change the color theme of the existing pool. If your preference was a lighter color, or a darker design, there are many materials to choose from. Adding an outdoor kitchen, or outdoor fire feature enhances the pool space as well. Sometimes the makeover is not the pool itself – but the features added around it. Fire pits, fire places, patios, spas and kitchens, all add a new element of life to the pool area, creating a new outdoor living space to enjoy.
Surrounding pool landscaping is another part of the pool makeover process. Adding planters, adding screening, adding floral options and even palm trees, are ways to liven up the pool area. The ideas are endless when it comes to enhancing and pool remodeling your backyard.
