7 Stunning pool remodeling ideas for 2021

Looking to upgrade your outdoor oasis with a pool renovation?

The first thing to remember is that your backyard does not end at your pool’s edge. We recommend looking at the entire backyard space to ensure you’ll enjoy a truly renovated, refreshed oasis all summer long.

With all the options of a grand swimming pool remodel, we know first-hand that it can be overwhelming to decide which pool remodeling ideas are worth the investment. Below, we have included seven exciting pool remodeling ideas that we believe can give you a wonderful result and add value to your property.

1. Make a splash with water features

Adding water features that make a splash like fountains, waterfalls, scuppers, and sprayers are often simple to layer into an existing pool design and can breathe new life into a lackluster pool area with motion and sound.

When you add water features to your outdoor area, the lush sound of falling water can really boost your ambiance level around the pool.

Water features may be built into a small retaining wall on one side of the pool, or into a mound of boulders. Elegant and refined or wild and natural, well-thought-out water features can easily blend into the overall surroundings.

2. Heat things up with a fire pit

A stone fire pit is a fantastic way to give your outdoor space warmth, unintentional light and may just be the upgrade your outdoor area needs. When thoughtfully designed and integrated into your property’s landscape, an outdoor fireplace will extend the living space of your home and provides another zone for your family and friends to gather.

We’ve heated up many backyards, and in our opinion, adding a stone fire pit feature is the perfect centerpiece for any celebration or get-together. It’s a great way to draw people together in a warm and inviting environment and allows you to entertain and enjoy your outdoor space into late fall and early spring.

3. Add charm with pool resurfacing

Swimming pool resurfacing can be a solid way to add charm back into what was once a spectacular swimming pool.

When you resurface your in-ground swimming pool it improves the look of your pool, while also serving the practical purpose of replacing something that wears over time. If your pool currently has a simple plaster finish, an update could also make your pool look more modern. These days, many people choose aggregate finishes that come in different colors and incorporate stones, shells, mosaic tiles, or other materials.

4. Sparkle your sanctuary with outdoor lighting

After sunset, it is common for beautiful outdoor spaces to be swallowed by darkness. By adding light to your outdoor oasis, you can magically showcase your landscape, stone, and plants in their best light. Lighting can also add a whole new dimension to your outdoor space and add a sense of warmth.

Our design team can configure several outdoor landscape lighting designs that will highlight focal points on your property, access points to outdoor spaces, and property entrances.

We use low voltage lighting to create a relaxing ambiance for your landscape at night, and garden lights are well hidden safely in the ground near features such as plants, trees, walls, statues, and pillars. By angling and hiding the lights it creates a beautiful, highlighted look on all your landscape’s features.

5. Pretty your place with a brand-new pool deck or pavers

Adding a brand-new pool deck or pool pavers could be your answer to a beautiful outdoor upgrade to complete your outdoor space.

From sunbaking to playing and entertaining your guests, you may find that you spend more time on the deck than inside your swimming pool. So a well thought out design should be considered to finish your landscape.

Whether you’re looking to create a tropical oasis, natural grotto or modern masterpiece, pool decking can take your swimming pool to the next level. We work with our clients to ensure the design is inviting, enjoyable, and safe for your family so you can get the most out of your space.

It has been said that spending time outdoors in nature is one of the best things we can do for our health and well-being and by incorporating a well-designed outdoor living space into your property we can make that happen. A Patio will enable you to spend more time with friends and family outside, allowing you to enjoy fresh air and sunshine while you relax in your exterior living space.

An alternative may also be to add an outdoor structure like a gazebo, pergola, or pavilion. Each option can be a stylish and practical addition to any landscape design and increase the value of your home.
