Understanding Pool Aesthetics

About a year ago, I realized that there were some serious problems with the way that our pool looked. It was old, outdated, and incredibly unsafe for visitors, since the entire cover was having problems. I began thinking of various ways to make things right, and it occurred to me that the best thing we could do would be to replace the cover. It was incredible to see just how much of a difference it made, and within days, the pool looked like a brand new area. I wanted to begin a blog all about understanding and correcting pool aesthetics, so you know how to make things right.

3 Great Pool Renovation Ideas

If you have had your pool for quite some time, then it may be time to hire a pool contractor to do some renovations for you. Here are three great pool renovation ideas. 

New Liner 

A great great way to change up the way that your pool looks, as well as it give it several more years of life, is to replace the vinyl liner within your pool. This is the barrier between the concrete of your pool and the water, so it is important that your pool liner is in good condition. Your pool liner also acts as a decorative feature in your pool. The vinyl liners come with several different designs on them, so if you change your pool liner, you can essentially change the entire look of your pool's interior. When you hire a pool contractor to renovate your pool and change your pool liner, they will show you a huge variety of liners that you can choose from. 

Redo The Cement Work Around The Pool

Another great pool renovation involves removing all of the old cement work around your pool and have it completely. The cement work around your pool can become very weathered over time and may begin to chip, crack, discolor, or otherwise break down. This is not something that you likely want to happen, not only because it looks bad, but also because you often walk around your pool with bare feet. This increases your risk of hurting your feet and even tripping and falling. When you have the cement work redone, you can either choose to go with a solid cement slab, or you can have concrete tiles put down. The tiles are a bit more fun and decorative, but both get the job done well. 

Add A Hot Tub 

A big renovation for your pool that is most definitely worth the time and the money is the addition of a hot tub. By adding a hot tub to your pool area, you make it more enjoyable for you and you also make it possible for you to use your pool area year round, no matter where you live. The hot tub can be attached to your actual pool, or it can be located in the same vicinity, but as a separate structure. The shape, liner, etc., can be made to match your pool so that everything looks put together. 

A pool renovations company like After Hours Pool Service can include anything from a new pool liner, to new cement work, or even the addition of a hot tub.
