How to Decorate My Pool Area

The perfect poolscape is something unique to every household, and a little inspiration goes a long way. Whether you’re incorporating decorative elements during the design and build stage, or whether you’re adding them afterwards, these finishing touches can really elevate the style of an outdoor space, and boost the enjoyment of your new poolscape.
In this article, we’ll take you through some stunning pool decoration ideas to transform it from beautiful to breathtaking.

Top tips to decorate your pool area

Create a waterscape

Nothing will complement your swimming pool better than a beautiful, natural waterscape. Perhaps you want to keep it simple with a water fountain centerpiece? Or maybe you wish to evoke an atmosphere of tropical bliss with a natural rock waterfall? Whatever you choose, incorporating decorative rocks and water features into your poolscape will add an alluring final touch to soothe the mind.

Stylish seating

Balance out the active side of swimming pools with a place to sit, relax and unwind. There are several options available, including in-built choices like swim-up seats and sun shelves to enjoy a rest whilst still immersed. For a place to read, meditate or enjoy a drink between dips, a comfy couch area complete with table and hammock makes for the perfect poolside retreat.

Slides for family fun

Give your kids something to smile about with an in-built slide. Pools are already lively places to be, and slides can bring a touch of waterpark to your very own backyard. While the children are sure to love it, it might also bring a splash of fun to the adults’ day, too.

Personalized tile patterns

Add some depth and design to your poolscape with customized tiling for either your pool floor or around the edges. With a range of layouts, colors and patterns to play with, you can create a final look that’s truly one-of-a-kind. Tiles are also easy to keep clean, making maintenance an easy job.

Deck jets & misting systems

If you want something special for your poolscape, why not consider deck jets or misting systems? These add a new, fun dimension to your pool, and bring something unexpected to a straightforward pool design. Simply consult with your pool designer to decide how best to incorporate misting or jetting systems.

Light it up

Bring some nocturnal beauty to your pool with LED lighting. Get the party started with flashing, multi-colored lights, or opt for an understated golden glow, perfect for a relaxed evening of night-swimming. From a practical point of view, lighting allows you to enjoy the warmth of a summer evening with full visibility and total atmosphere.

Add a touch of greenery

Studies have shown that plants can positively influence mental health by reducing feelings of stress. Truth be told, no outdoor space is complete without plants, flowers and greenery to bring some vibrancy and warmth. Freedom is yours to green up your poolscape however you wish, and this could include anything from statement palm trees to tasteful potted plants.
