Whether you want a backyard to host your poolside parties or to relax with your favorite book, backyard pools can make your space feel like a resort. With twinkling lights, luxurious accents, and comfortable seating, your private retreat is all set to sway you. Here are some amazing additions to turn your backyard into a pool resort:
Choose Luxuriant Poolside Landscape
Depending on the shape of your pool and deck materials, you can create a seamless space that merges with your outdoor architecture. It can complement the existing space or emerge as an exotic feature. Patios and decks are commonly preferred to create a resort-like feel in the backyard. You can make your space livable by adding sophisticated and functional features to it.
Above all, place the pool deck at the right spot to enjoy the surrounding beauty and participate in activities happening at your pool. When planning the deck, consider the sunshine that you need.
A patio can be installed if you need a respite from the sun during hot summer days. Choose the right material for the pool deck. Prefer the material that blends in with pool coping to create a cohesive look.
Warming Space with an Outdoor Fire Pit
Fire features are, now, the most popular backyard additions. With a fireplace or a fire pit, you can create an amazing ambiance in your own poolside resort. Fireplace is a good option when you want to make a statement and feel the warmth on chilly winter nights. It stands at the edge of the pool so you can’t merit a fireplace as a hangout with your friends.
A fire pit, on the other hand, is installed as the center point of your pool deck where you can sit and chat with your guests and family. There are choices for material of fire features and type of fuel to ignite them. Choose the right option depending on your landscape.
Add Pool Water Features
Imagine the calming sound of water gushing into your pool or steam of bubbling water rising from your hot tub spa. Are you already sinking into resort-like feeling? Well, that’s what you’ll get with custom pool features. Backyard pools can become a tropical paradise with elements such as spas and hot tubs.
You can either choose spillover spa that sits above your pool or opt for overflow spa that sits away from the pool. Make your own oyster with a rock waterfall or a sheer decent waterfall that produces a clear arc of water.
Cook It Up Outside
Grilling and swimming go hand in hand when you want a perfect vacation. If you have a backyard pool, make the most of this space with an outdoor kitchen as well. Nothing compares to an afternoon of swimming and an evening of grilling in your poolside kitchen.
Make your outdoor kitchen an artistic studio for your appetite with modern amenities such as a grill, oven, smoker, and lobster boiler. Include a small bar area and a breakfast counter for a perfect outdoor vacation spot right in your backyard.
With these ideas, backyard pools can be transformed into a resort where you can enjoy an ideal staycation with your family
