Think about the number of times you plan to use the pool. It may not be a good idea to decorate one that you hardly ever use. However, some people have pools only to impress their guests and not to swim. Consider your reasons for having the pool before coming up with a decorating plan.
There are two main ways to design your backyard around the pool. Decide if you want to focus on the pool only or decorate the entire yard in equal parts. One common design is the use of a wooden or concrete deck that runs around the pool and around the rest of the yard.
One idea is not any better than the other; however, you must remain consistent and fully devoted to the project.
LED lighting is a new innovation for backyard designs. The lights are multicolored, coming in all colors, and durable, lasting as long as several decades. LED lights are so durable that you can change your designs countless times and still retain the high quality and brightness.
Decide which design shapes look good for your lights. The average pool is shaped like an oval, but you can create other shapes around the pool, such as rectangles or triangles.
Choose different sizes of LED lights, which are found in endless selections online and in stores. Alternate small lights with larger ones or only install small fixtures all around. When it comes to shapes, sizes and colors, the design possibilities for your pool are endless. Decide how you want to design the surrounding area, including the backyard walls and walkways.
Hosting a pool party is not the only reason to create themes. Many pools have unique themes that represent the owner's personality. Some people have starry night themes that are best seen at night. Other people have alternating themes that are different for every night. Some people have decorations that can be seen both during the day and at night, such as water fountains, floating flowers and lily pads. Place many similar elements around the yard and not just in or around the pool.
Decorating your pool to complement the backyard is a privilege that few homeowners have. Turn a design project into a fun time that you always look forward to and never stops being interested. There are many factors to consider when designing your pool, so create a good, detailed plan from the beginning.
