If you’ve longed for an oasis in your backyard, there is no better time than the present to break ground. There are many design options available that will give the look and feel of a high-end pool. It’s now realistic to have a luxury pool in your backyard for a fraction of what it would have cost in years past. When designing your dream pool, consider adding a few of these affordable luxury pool features.
Lighting is one of the best ways to dramatically transform your pool’s appearance without breaking the bank. The use of LED lighting has increased over the past few years, with hundreds of colors now available. The colors can be programmed to change, altering the ambiance of your pool throughout the night. These lights are also energy efficient, cutting your costs in the long run.
Waterfalls are one of the first things associated with luxury pools but are now easier than ever to install in a backyard pool. Adding a waterfall to your pool design will provide elegance and sophistication. The sounds produced by the waterfall are very soothing and relaxing as well. Having water circulating throughout your pool can also reduce your maintenance costs, as you’ll reduce the buildup of debris and algae.
You probably think you can only have access to a swim-up bar at an all-inclusive resort, right? It’s time to rethink that, as you can now have a swim-up bar right in your own backyard! You can add a kitchen and counterspace to your backyard pool design, allowing you to easily cook, grill and host outside. This kitchen can be set next to the pool, where in-water seating can be provided. A reasonable upgrade, your pool will instantly be known as the luxury staycation spot in the neighborhood!
Also known as a Baja Shelf, these ledges are placed in shallow water, typically only a few inches deep. They allow you to soak up the warm sun in a relaxing, luxury setting.
