Create a Mood and More
At its most basic, lighting is necessary to make your pool area safe when the sun goes down. But why stick to just basic? A well-designed lighting plan is more than illuminating — it’s inspired! Your local builder can help you choose the right lighting styles and colors to create a mood and showcase your entire poolscape design. Inspired pool lighting can extend your poolside entertaining well into the evening. By using a combination of low-profile lights around the pool’s perimeter and colorful underwater and fiber optic lights in the pool, you can provide subtle poolside illumination for minglers and a dynamic display for swimmers. Here are some ideas for how you can light up your poolscape:
Low-profile lights can accent paths and walkways while providing muted accent lighting.
Spotlights and Floodlights
Spotlights can be used to draw attention to specific pool, landscape or patio features. Floodlights are used for general lighting around common areas. Motion floodlights can be added for safety.
Up-lights highlight landscape or pool features from below.
Underwater lights make night swimming safer while creating a colorful pool environment. Fiber optic lights add vibrant drama to your pool area. In addition, pool re-lighting kits are available. Re-lighting kits allow pool owners with fiber optic lighting to upgrade to more efficient LED pool lighting. Enhanced features like the ability to change colors and power up a light show can turn a backyard pool into a relaxing oasis – or party central!
