cool pool features

Your backyard can become a staycationer’s paradise with cool pool features that enhance your swimming experience.

Your pool’s turquoise waters are not just for exercising; they are beautiful additions that can add both relaxation and rejuvenation.

So, without delay, let us look at some amazing cool pool features that you can add to your swimming pool.

Pool Water Features

You can incorporate a stunning fountain or a cascading waterfall, which creates a resort-like atmosphere with sheer descents dripping down from your spillover spa or retaining wall. Or design a natural waterfall that trickles down rocks, mimicking a stream.

If you are a DIYer, work with your pool builder to create a shabby chic fountain out of recycled plant containers. You can also add a bit of drama and go with industrial motifs.

Fire in the Sky

The most popular cool pool features that blend the magic of fire and water are fire pits, fire bowls, and fireplaces.

If you want to add subtle contrast or the space is too small to have a whole fire table, add some fire bowls with fire glass or lava rocks.

On the other hand, if you like a “go-big-or-go-home” setting, build a retaining wall to partition the space and turn it into a fire wall. Adjacent to it, have a built-in grill or a full-size outdoor kitchen and create the ultimate destination for backyard pool parties.


Light and Music

Don’t forget to show off your gorgeous pool in the dark. Light up your private oasis with in-pool or underwater lighting. If you want some inexpensive and quick-to-do alternatives, add pool floating lights, which you can remove when not needed.

Other cool pool features that can accentuate your beautiful backyard are uplighting and downlighting options for tall structures, such as statues or even trees.

You can even pair water features like deck jets and rain curtains with color-changing LED lights and sound effects, to set the right mood and ambiance.

Pool Landscaping

Landscaping around the pool doesn’t have to be elaborate. You can achieve a desert look with a few palm trees, drought-tolerant plants, pebbles, and rocks.

You can use natural sand, stone, and rocks to create the effect or choose concrete faux rock boulders. The best part is these pool features are low maintenance since succulents, cactus, and other desert plants don’t shed many leaves and need very little water.

Pool Automation

One of the best pool features that can make your life easier is a pool automation system. Suction cleaners and pressure-side robotic pool cleaners can pick up the tiniest bits of debris from the water.

Delegate the much-dreaded task of pool cleaning to your trusted pool robot and you can be swimming in minutes. Get a basic model or a more advanced one with gyroscopic control, topside filter access, and superior wall-climbing abilities. These allow you to work smarter, not harder.

Custom-Built Pool Slide

Whether you built a slide worthy of an amusement park or a more sophisticated and majestic version, pool slides are an instant hit with all ages.

Your kids can be the neighborhood favorites when your pool sports a custom water slide. Or get a simpler water slide and diving board that functions just as well.
