Easy ways to upgrade your Pool and Area Around it

Spending time in a pool during a hot summer day is one of the best things ever. If you’re not happy with the current state of your pool, you won’t be able to enjoy the time you spend on it. You can easily make your pool more beautiful and advanced if you just do some of the following things.

Get pool seats 

Getting pool seats will make your pool even more enjoyable. With these special chairs, you’ll be able to sit down, relax, and have a drink. You won’t have to get out of the pool at all. Of course, you can’t just take any chair and put it in the pool. You can get pool chairs made of plastic resistant to the wear of swimming pool chemicals that can easily be moved.

Use LEDs

The simplest, and yet the most impactful way to upgrade your pool is with LEDs. Your pool will immediately transition from the boring glow to bright shades of teal and blue. You’ll notice how this change also has an impact on your mood. You can even play with colors and create the perfect ambiance for any occasion.

Get some outdoor furniture 

Since you probably don’t spend all the time in the pool, you’ll need a hangout spot when you leave the water. You can add something simple like a few chairs and a table. This is a great way to start equipping the area around your pool. Get some high-quality outdoor furniture covers and enjoy sunbathing by your pool.

Update pool fencing

Out-dated fencing is not unusual. If you have this problem, the whole look of your pool will be disrupted. If this is the case, it’s time you updated your fencing. You can choose borderless glass fencing which is very popular right now. You can opt for wooden fencing if you prefer it more. It’s even easier to blend the wooden fencing into the natural surroundings. 

Outdoor kitchen

Having an outdoor kitchen is getting more popular. If you find your area around the pool empty, wait no more and get an outdoor kitchen. Hot summer days spent in the pool can only be bettered with some cocktails or a barbecue. The process of landscaping around the pool can be fun and creative. Outdoor kitchens are just one idea, next to gardens or fountains. What makes an outdoor kitchen is that it’s not only cool but also very practical.

Install handrails

If your biggest concern is to make the pool safer or more accessible when upgrading, you can install handrails. You can install the metal rails if you wish, but they are likely to burn your hands in high temperatures. Instead, you can get powder-coated handrails.

Replace waterline tile

You can do a lot to change the look of your pool. The pool will definitely look better if you just change the waterline tile. The entire area will look fresh and even more beautiful. You can choose the design you like the most and that suits the rest of the interior. Choose among all sorts of colors, patterns, and sizes. Play with the designs and make your pool look amazing. 

Improve heating

If you want to focus your upgrading to the more practical side, you can improve the heating. You can upgrade your old-school heater and warm your pool and spa faster. A natural-gas heater with a high thermal efficiency rating is great not only for faster heating but also for a healthier environment. An electric heat pump can save energy, even more, depending on how often you use the pool.

Baja steps

A Baja step is a large, flat, shallow surface in the pool, about 6 inches deep. A Baja step is especially popular since it’s great for placing a lounge chair. It is very easy to add one, but if you opt for it, you should resurface the entire pool. You want the step to match your pool and if you do resurface, it certainly will.

Apply mosaics

If you decide to remodel the agenda too, you should definitely consider applying mosaics. Besides being very fun and interesting, mosaics are also affordable. They will make your pool seem more sophisticated and personal. If you want to make it really personal, you can choose a family monogram. Tons of creatures and symbols can be used for this; you should just find the one you like.


Your pool is probably your favorite place in the whole household. If you feel like it, you should pay some attention to the pool and make upgrade it a bit this year. Then, get ready and make new memories in your refreshed pool area.

  1. My pool is already old, and that is why I’ve decided to start looking for a pool resurfacing service. Thank you for sharing here as well the importance of having a new heater installed. I also agree with you that the pool’s cracks must be sealed.
