Your pool is your oasis, an area where you can escape the worries of the day and relax. It also provides a place for splashing around with family and friends, whether you’re having a quiet gathering or a full-blown pool party. If pool remodeling is on this summer’s agenda, help yourself avoid the numerous mistakes many homeowners make when commissioning upgrades.
Keep the following mistakes in mind as you plan your pool renovation or remodeling project:
No Entertainment Space
Forgetting to plan for entertainment space means little to no room for lounging, grilling, and enjoying the company of your favorite people. Whether you want space for lounge chairs and tables or an area that includes a fire pit and decked-out grill, remember to mention this to your pool remodeling contractors. You may need to extend the fencing around your pool or make other changes that accommodate the people you see on a regular basis.
Lack of Sun Shelf
A sun shelf is a feature that everyone can enjoy. It is a shallow section of the pool perfect for smaller children to play in and ideal for adults to literally dip a toe. The shelf can be designed with a built-in umbrella sleeve for shade when you want it.
No Water Feature
You may think a water feature is a superfluous pool remodeling effort, but think again. Whether you want a bubbler under the water, a waterfall, or any other water feature, you will enjoy the soothing, relaxing sounds of running water. Constantly-moving water also dissuades insects from buzzing around your pool. Additionally, a water feature adds to the aesthetic value of your backyard to make the space more inviting to potential buyers.
