Beat the Heat with These Renovation Ideas for Your Pool Area

Do you still have nightmares about last season’s unbearable heat waves? Since warmer weather is on the horizon, it’s time to start thinking about renovations to work on in your swimming pool and pool deck areas to beat the summer heat! Think about adding some greenery, an in-pool sitting area, or incorporating some shade on the pool deck.

Let’s dive into the hottest pool renovation ideas to beat the summer heat!

Plant Greenery Around Your Pool

Finding different plants and flowers to add to your pool area or pool deck is a terrific way to add a pop of color! While deciding on the type of plants to add, keep in mind that you want ones that are easy to take care of and that won’t get twigs or branches in your pool. Think of planting hydrangeas, roses, spirea, astilbe, or an annual planting to make your pool area your own.

Each one of these types of plants provides a sense of tranquility and a variety of colors to your swimming pool area. Also, if your pool deck is large enough, consider adding annually blooming potted plants around the edge. A little landscaping is not only a beautiful addition to your swimming pool but will add peace and some privacy to your backyard paradise.

Keep Things Shady with Pergolas

If you’re trying to find ways to provide some necessary shade to keep the blistering heat at bay, add pergolas to your pool deck to help cool down from the sweltering heat. A traditional pergola is a common, open outdoor feature that creates a shaded area on a walkway or sitting area. Pergolas have four support beams with lattice patterns at the top; they will not keep out rain, but they will provide shade on a sunny day.

Some Pergolas have mechanical aspects installed, allowing the pergola to move to the owner’s needs. For example, mechanical pergolas are powered through a smartphone, allowing you to adjust the slats on the roof, bring up or pull down a surrounding screen to repel bugs, and change the lighting inside the pergola. Although a mechanical pergola is a more expensive option, they are a solid investment as they will provide a space that can be used for rain or shine and in the cooler months of the year.

This type of outdoor structure is available in certain materials such as wood, fiberglass, vinyl, steel, and aluminum. While pergolas provide shade, the open lattice roof allows some sunlight to shine through.

Build a Tanning Shelf

Now, it’s time to focus on the swimming pool. Adding a tanning or sun shelf is a wonderful way to have fun in the pool without getting your bathing suit wet. Since this in-pool element is built on the shallow end of your pool, you can lounge on an in-pool chair by yourself or with friends, making it the perfect socialization spot that will not leave you soaked. With the tanning shelf, you will have a splendid view of the entire pool. This element allows you to keep a close eye on everyone swimming and make sure everyone is safe without traveling too far from the pool area.

Consider Installing a Hot Tub

To add that extra element to your swimming pool, consider installing or building a hot tub. There are two ways for homeowners to incorporate a hot tub: attached to their swimming pool or purchase and install a pre-made hot tub.

Whether you already have a swimming pool or are getting ready to install one, adding an attached hot tub adds a dynamic element to your pool. Did you know that attaching a hot tub to your swimming pool can increase the value of your home? The value of your home increases if you have an in-ground swimming pool with an attached hot tub. Also, if you don’t have a lot of space in your backyard, attaching a hot tub to your swimming pool is a terrific way to save space.

However, if you want a hot tub but don’t want it attached to your swimming pool, consider a pre-made hot tub. Marquis brand hot tubs offer luxury amenities that are found at a resort or spa, but in assorted styles and sizes that fit your needs. Free standing hot tubs are also an excellent choice if you want to be able to use them outside of the summer season. Avid spa users enjoy their spas 365 days per year. Popular collections like The Crown Collection or The Vector21 Series offer hot tubs in a variety of sizes and shapes that can fit anyone’s needs.

Convert Your Chlorine Pool to Saltwater

If you’re tired of seeing your hair turn green or want to stop smelling like chlorine after spending a day in your pool, consider converting your chlorine swimming pool to a saltwater pool. It’s easy to change your pool to a saltwater pool. A professional pool company installs a saltwater chlorinator, which converts pool salt into chlorine by using an electrolytic cell. Additionally, you can see more positive benefits to owning a saltwater pool. For example, saltwater pool owners see clearer and silky-smooth water, swimmers’ eyes and skin are not irritated by the salt, while chlorine causes swimmers eyes to get red and dried out skin. Plus, you won’t deal with the potent smell of chlorine from your pool and your clothes. Convert your swimming pool to a saltwater pool in time for summer.

Stay Cool by the Poolside This Summer!

Pool renovations are the perfect way to update a tired backyard area and make it look like a luxurious resort. You can stay cool this summer while soaking up the much-needed sun. Choose from adding a variety of plants and bushes to converting your chlorine pool to saltwater to installing pergolas or an attached hot tub to beat the upcoming heat.
