Enhance Your Pool Area With a Modern Touch

Now that spring is on the way, it won’t be too long before we’ll be back in our gardens once again. If you have a pool area, that’s naturally going to be the focal point of your outdoor living, so it’s important you’re happy with how it looks and works.

Here’s a few ways to enhance your pool area without having to break the bank.

Lounge Back in Luxury

Create the ultimate chill out experience with a luxury sun lounger and poolside seating. Stretch out with a towel, lie back, listen to some music and top up your tan with friends, as the sunlight dances off the water. For a modern touch, invest in a luxury padded wooden monochrome style that can add a refined aesthetic to any style of pool area.

Create Ambience

One way to enhance your home swimming pool is to add mood lighting. Fibre optics, wall lights and floaters work particularly well outdoors. You could even try colorful bulbs to create more of a statement for night time parties and chilling out sessions.

Maintain a Sparkling Pool

It’s no good having a luxury pool when it’s full of algae and fallen leaves and twigs. A pool is a big investment, so it’s going to have to be well maintained to keep it looking shiny and new. Remove all debris with a leaf net. Make sure to brush the walls and floor of your pool at least once a week for optimum cleanliness. It takes a bit of elbow grease, but it’s worth it in the end! If you just don’t have the time, you could always hire a professional cleaning service.

Decorate Your Patio Area

Whether it’s with exotic colorful flowers and plants, or decorative tiles, there are so many ways to enhance your patio area. Flowers are an inexpensive way to draw your eye to the pool, as well as adding pleasant, relaxing fragrances. Create a contrasting finish to make your pool stand out by fitting rich wooden flooring and bordering. You could even leave a panel out, for a contemporary look, as shown in the image.

Keep Your Lawn Looking Fresh

A well kept lawn keeps your outdoor space looking crisp and well maintained. Online services like Lawn Mower Lane offer top of the ranger mowers to help give your backyard that professional finish. The best time for mowing grass is when it’s completely dry, so that the blade will make a clean cut. Never cut your grass too short, as this contributes to weed growth, due to exposed soil.

Give Your Fence an Upgrade

Your fence area is like a border for your backyard. You don’t want an ugly border surrounding a beautiful landscape, so make sure that your fencing is up to scratch. There are so many styles to choose from depending on what you need. You could opt for a solid wall, or traditional wooden fencing. When going for a modern approach, a solid wall works well, as it allows you to add lighting fixtures and contrasting decor.
