Many homeowners see a swimming pool as the ultimate backyard addition. While these amenities are fun and have a definite “wow” factor, they tend to look out of place without a well-rounded property around them. In reality, a swimming pool should be just one part of your backyard remodeling plan. For your next backyard remodeling project, consider adding one of these four features to complement your swimming pool:
Add a Pool Fence for Safety
If you have a pool, you should have a pool fence. In many jurisdictions, this is required by law. Even if your local codes do not require pool fences, it is still a good idea to install one. These barriers can keep unwelcome guests (e.g., neighbors, animals, or unsupervised children) from taking an unauthorized dip.
Backyard Remodeling Basics: Create a Patio or Deck
A patio or deck can be just what your swimming pool needs, both in terms of function and aesthetics. A well-crafted wood deck or natural stone patio is an excellent foil for an above- or in-ground swimming pool, and the combination can look much better than a swimming pool alone. When creating your patio, keep your lifestyle in mind. For example, provide enough seating for your family and friends, include lighting for visibility at night, and add a shade structure to beat the heat.
Build an Outdoor Kitchen
Don’t you get hungry after going for a swim? With an outdoor kitchen, you don’t have to towel off to grab a snack. Instead, parents can watch their kids, cook a meal, and relax by the pool with an outdoor kitchen. Include whatever you think you’ll need: a grill, a refrigerator, and a sink are just some of the standard features of outdoor kitchens.
Go Big or Go Home: Outdoor Projectors, Sound Systems, and More
If creating the ultimate outdoor paradise is your goal, include some high-end additions in your next backyard remodeling project. Add an outdoor projector and sound system for poolside movie nights. Install a hot tub alongside your pool, or even add a water slide. The options are endless when creating the backyard of your dreams, and Your Project Loan is here to help with financing!
