Have a pool? Need to spruce it up a bit? There are some awesome, cheap solutions that you can choose from. Your wallet might not be able to give you the pool of your dreams, with an endless ledge or a shark tank, but you can always add a few features that will make you feel like you’re swimming in your personal oasis. If you’re curious how to make your pool feel like a million bucks without spending money like you’re Donald Trump, read on.
These are like waterfalls, but usually fall from a taller pool down to another level. It doesn’t have to break the bank to have another pool on a different level–actually, a lot of tanning ledges do this already. Tanning ledges are just smaller, shallower pools that exist for the purpose of getting in your summer glow. A cascade will let water flow to the next level, and give you a beautiful trickling background noise.
These may sound luxurious, but can in fact be added using a simple manipulation of your landscape. If your pool is on an incline, build the bar at the opposite end, so you won’t have to do any leveling. The pool’s edge can stop right at the bar, so all you have to do is install a few bar stools (a.k.a., cement slabs) and you can enjoy your favorite cocktails without ever leaving the pool. This can be great for parties, too!
You may have to do a little extra skimming in the morning, but it’s definitely worth it. A tree that gives beautiful shade to your pool will give you that relaxing touch. It will also integrate your pool into your landscape a little more, so you won’t have a pool that sticks out. You could even have a few bushes and plants that push to the edge of the pool and cover a section of the deck, so it feels even more integrated.
