Who has a pool in their house? There are probably a couple of homes in the neighborhood that have the same size, if not bigger, pool than yours. Simply having one is not enough to turn heads anymore. When entertainment is a big part of your family, keep your pool in good condition and set the new standard. Here’s how:
Keep it safe
You want to be the talk of the town, but not for the wrong reasons. If your pool has no fence (and mind you, you need one of those), you’re in trouble. Don’t worry about this part, as there are DIY pool fence varieties you can install yourself. Fence makers understand that you want something that boosts the appearance of the pool, so they have designs that are unobtrusive but still secure.
Design around it
You’ve got the pool and its fence. What else? If everything else is bare, your backyard will simply look like unfinished space. Visitors will constantly wonder what you plan to do next and how you intend to utilize the area. The pool is an imposing structure, but there will be corners left for you to decorate creatively.
You didn’t add a pool to the house just to entertain guests. Let the family have some fun with it. Let them make a mess, but do clean up after to keep it clean and safe. During summer, you’ll be thankful for the private place while everyone else fights over space in public pools. You don’t even have to worry about children mingling with strangers. Want a bigger crowd? Invite guests, only those you want to be around.
Every improvement in your home is meant to add value to it. Your pool can do just that if you design it carefully.
