If you’re looking for a simple way to spruce up your pool area, quality lights may be just what you need. With the right touches and expert installation, you can enjoy your pool well after the sun has set. Here are some of our best pool lighting ideas to date!
Completing Your Pool Area with Quality Lighting
The right touch of beautiful and functional lighting can be just the detail your landscape needs to wow guests and create the ambiance you crave. Here are some great ways to do just that.
1. Light Your Deck
Outdoor lamps can make a great addition to any pool deck that adds style and an element of safety. Not only does it make the whole space easier to see, but it can be great background lighting for the pool itself.
2. Mood Lighting
We’re not suggesting college dorm style strobe lights, but having soft color changing mood lighting can be an exciting feature when paired with the right pool area and landscape. It makes night time swims safer and, if you have small kids, they’ll love them!
This dreamy and advanced technique is one of our favorites; mount lights below trees or the soffit of your home or pool house to create the appearance of moonlight against your pool.
We can also install moonlighting in your trees to give your pool area security lights that are attractive.
4. Water Features
When you work with an expert team like the one at Complete Landsculpture, we can craft a complete package. Implementing backlights from below cascades or adding in touches of light in a fountain to create drama and draw attention to attractive features.
We can designate different zones for lighting so that during certain times of night or even for different purposes (a relaxing night by the pool vs. a backyard BBQ with the neighbors), you can control the lights in each area and even dim when you want.
6. Expert Techniques
Although this isn’t a specific example, it is important to note that having a lighting expert can make or break your pool experience.
While design and maintenance are essential aspects of great lighting, so is choosing the best products. An expert knows the lighting in the pool area should be glare-free to eliminate the risk of accident as well as making the space uncomfortable.
