There is nothing better than going to the beach, right? The smell of the ocean and the ability to read a book while relaxing under the sun are fantastic. But no sooner than when you start thinking about this, you begin to remember all of the negative aspects of the beach. The crowds. The noise. Trying to find parking. Seagulls who take your food. And the list goes on and on.
What if we told you that it was possible to bring the beach to your backyard pool? Many Florida homeowners don’t realize that this is an option. When working with a trusted pool contractor, you can add beachy elements to your backyard pool. This will allow you and your family to relax as if you were at the beach without having to leave the comfort of your own home! Below, you’ll find some ideas to help bring the beach to your backyard.
One of the exciting new concepts that Florida pool owners have begun utilizing is a beach entry. Beach entries for a pool mimic walking into an ocean. You walk down a gradual slope, with the water getting deeper and deeper each step of the way. So, in your own backyard, you could make it feel as though you were taking a dip in the ocean. Adding sand at the top of your beach entryway can help sell this point.
Muted Color Palette
Another way to help give a beach vibe is by utilizing a muted color palette. Muted colors are that have added a tint, shade, or tone so that they are less bright and more subdued. They make for a more relaxing color scheme. Consider looking at colors such as teal and aqua to mimic the ocean. You can also think about using hues of tan to simulate the sand.
Add A Cabana
This is an excellent option for those who may not feel ready to invest in pool reconstruction. You can put a cabana poolside, even if you already have a pool in your backyard. A cabana will allow you to relax and escape into the silence of your own backyard.
