Add New Features to Your Pool for More Fun

A swimming pool is a great source of fun and entertainment for families. So if your old pool needs to be rejuvenated with new features and improvements, here are a few suggestions:

All Hands on Deck

The decking is always one of the things to change when working on a swimming pool remodel. Some experts suggest changing the material to something that withstands water or prolonged sun exposure. Choices may include organic stone due to their non-slip, non-fade composition and Tennessee crab orchard stone, which can dissipate heat during hot summer days.

Calming Effect

Running water has its way of soothing nerves, especially when you’re having some peace and quiet by the pool on a clear day. To that effect, a good swimming pool design by NJ contractors can include features such as a rock waterfalls and fountain bubblers. However, if you’re entertaining ideas for a water slide, the contractor should clear the design with municipal building authorities; the landing area must be deep enough for the swimmer to have maneuvering room.

Bonding Time

Never forget that a pool patio provides opportunities for family and friends to bond out of the water. Consider incorporating a shaded dining area with a footpath connecting it to the main pool deck. Professionals also suggest adding a fireplace, though you’ll need to factor in the planning for stonework and ignition controls.
