9 Pool Remodeling Ideas to Enhance Your Backyard Oasis
Jul 27, 2021
A few unique pool remodeling ideas for your backyard oasis.
Whether you’re a relatively new pool owner or have been enjoying one for many years, there’s a point where you’ll want to change things up a bit. Pool renovation will not only improve the appearance of your property but will also increase its value and possibly even make you the talk of your neighborhood – which is almost guaranteed to happen if you create a tropical oasis right in your backyard!
The good news is that professional pool design and modern features make this easier to achieve than ever before. Follow at least a few of the swimming pool remodeling ideas listed below and you’ll have your very own oasis in no time.
Customized Pool Deck
If you want to create an oasis, a customized pool deck is a wonderful place to start. With options such as building a concrete deck, using natural stone, installing a cover, and many others, you’ll set the groundwork for everything that’s to follow. You can even use it in conjunction with a pavilion and a variety of similar features.
Feeling of Privacy
Although an oasis is often thought of as being an open space, your household members and guests may appreciate a bit more privacy. Enclosing your oasis with the use of stone walls or shrubs will allow you to section off the property and provide a more intimate experience for everyone. You can also separate this area from a grill to help keep the oasis atmosphere alive!
LED Lighting Installation
To give your backyard oasis the perfect type of ambience, you’ll definitely want to include an LED lighting setup. These lights come in a wide array of colors, so you’ll be able to choose your favorites and imbue your oasis with a unique personality. LED lights use a small amount of energy, so if you want your home to be green, simply add these and some energy-efficient pool equipment to your home.
Waterline tiles come in a large variety of colors and patterns, which will allow you to get the precise look and feel that you’re trying to achieve for your oasis. These porcelain, ceramic, or glass tiles are installed along the waterline and will add flair to every swimming pool. They’re one of the easiest ways to give your pool its own personality.
Nothing says oasis quite like ample vegetation. If you’d like to fully commit to the experience, then you may want to plant a few palm trees around the pool area which will automatically relay the vibe you’re going for. That being said, adding other types of trees, shrubs, flowers, and even a raised garden will create the feel of a backyard oasis. Just remember to consider the potential need for future lawn maintenance.
As we already stated above, LED lighting is a great way to add color and ambience to your swimming pool area, but you can also add it to the swimming pool itself. Underwater LED lights allow you to treat your pool as if it’s your own personal canvas. You can easily switch them out for other colors if you’d like to set a different mood or appear more festive around the holidays.
If you want to create an outdoor space that is not only an oasis but also conducive to communication, create an actual conversation area. You can even set up traditionally indoor items such as couches and recliners, then place a cover over the area to protect them from the elements while providing both seclusion and comfort.
Your oasis obviously already has a huge water feature, AKA your swimming pool, but it never hurts to add something a little extra. Some homeowners choose to install a fountain, which comes in a vast assortment of sizes, styles, and textures. If you have a large area, then a rockface waterfall truly completes the oasis experience. Then again, nothing beats lounging around in your own spa.
