If you have a pool in your backyard, you certainly appreciate it during summertime. However, if your pool is older and hasn’t had any improvements in a while, it may be time to upgrade your pool. Here are 4 impactful projects for your home swimming pool.

Underwater Lighting

A pool should have at least one underwater light to make swimming after dark safer. One way to upgrade your pool is to add more underwater lights or add different color lenses to the underwater lights. Colored underwater lighting makes the pool look fun and festive. You could even get lightbulbs that continually change colors.

Upgrade Your Pool With a Water Feature

A water feature like a waterfall or a fountain is an impressive way to upgrade your pool. The sound of flowing water will make your backyard even more relaxing. Adding a water feature can be a sizable investment because you may need to hire a mason to build a wall or grotto and then a plumber to connect the water source.

Build an Outdoor Kitchen by the Pool

Many people have a grill on the patio by the pool, but have you thought about upgrading to a complete outdoor kitchen? Add countertops, a mini-fridge, and a sink to upgrade your pool area. With an outdoor kitchen, you can prepare a meal from start to finish without ever going inside.

Upgrade Your Pool Seating

If the only seats around your pool are hard and plastic, you won’t be as comfortable as possible by the pool. Pools are all about relaxing, so why not upgrade your patio furniture? Find some lounge chairs with waterproof cushions to put around the pool. You may even consider installing some underwater seating in the shallow end.
