Building a swimming pool in your backyard is a dream come true, and with all dreams there are ways to improve them! Creating the perfect backyard oasis means that it is also equipped with lights in the pool and around the yard. Keep reading to find out what pool lighting options are available for your Redding swimming pool.
Landscape & Pool Lighting Options for your Backyard
Adding landscape and pool lighting to your backyard can be a fun project. Putting lights around your backyard adds to the appeal of your oasis, and it can give you a sense of security. There are a few creative ways that you can hang up lights in your backyard, and the best way to figure out exactly what you want is looking at pictures and designs.
Up in the Trees
Lights can be installed almost anywhere on your property. If you want to light up your backyard at night, putting lights at the base of trees in your backyard is a great way to do just that. You could also put lights in the tree so that they illuminate down onto the pool in your backyard.
Look into Soft Lighting
With all of these different landscape and pool lighting options, we recommend that you choose working with softer lights, opposed to the harsh bright lights. Having bright lights can actually cause too much attention to be drawn to your house and can be harder to see.
Avoid Lining Up Lights
A lot of homeowners favor creating a pathway made out of lights, but we recommend that you don’t do that. The reason being that it may look tacky or over done. If you are trying to achieve a safe and secure backyard, but make it subtle then less is more.
Pool Lighting Options
When you are building a swimming pool in your backyard, you are going to want it to match the look and feel of your existing backyard. Since we’re talking about safety and lighting, you are going to want to add pool lights to your swimming pool. Depending on how big your swimming pool is determines how many swimming pool lights you get. 3-4 pool lights is what we recommend, especially if you have a big gunite freeform pool.
