The swimming pool; your personal watering hole for entertainment. But when the sun sets and the cool evening air arrives, your oasis doesn't have to be abandoned. Here's some items that hundreds of costumes use to bring their backyard to life until the wee hours of the morning.
Having fiber optic lights on your pool gives you soft calming colors that change automatically that will showcase your pool.
The perimeter lighting outlines the shape of your pool and many can be synchronized to change colors at the same the interior pool lights change. There are even options now to have the lights and colors control via an app on your phone!
Another quick way to showcase your pool, whether it is an above ground or inground pool, is to have a floating fountain (maybe even one like this that has built in light shows) . They are inexpensive and easy to install. They also look pretty at night with only a white light on in the pool.
Another consideration is to add an extra element of sound to your backyard. Even if the pool is not being used, the sound of water gently cascading brings a sense a luxury and relation to the surrounding environment. You can achieve this effect by adding either a fountain to your patio area or a waterfall onto the pool.
Outline a path to your seating area the area with small solar lights or LED path lights. And don't forget to illuminate your seating as well.
If you're in a bind and need something quick yet cost effective, it's hard to go wrong with stringing white Christmas lights.
