  • Swimming pools are among the most popular recreational features for homeowners today.

    Whether it’s an in-ground or above-ground pool, kids and adults alike love to splash around in the cool water on a hot day.

    But the pool is also a great place for family and friends to soak up the sun, socialize, or just enjoy a meal together.

    With that in mind, here are four add-ons that you should consider for your pool.

Beach-style entry


  • For most kids and adults, entering the pool is pretty straightforward. You either gingerly walk down the steps as you acclimate to the water, or you go for the gusto and cannonball it.
  • Now, however, there’s a third option: a beach entry.
  • This gradual slope into the pool replicates the seashore, making a new and exotic option with the added bonus of easing entry for small children or for anyone with mobility issues.

  • No one will dispute the fact that the reflection of sunlight off the gently-waving surface of a pool is beautiful. Now, however, you can increase the visual effects of your pool with a waterfall.
  • The cascading movement of the water provides beautiful sights and sounds, and it makes a very photogenic place to capture the kids.
  • As an added bonus, the water is circulated more effectively, improving the performance of chlorine, salt, or other additives.

Fire elements


  • Contrast always provides an aesthetic impact in any part of your home. There is perhaps no better example of this artistic technique than fire and water.
  • Install a fire bowl or fire pit near your pool couples the soothing sounds of flowing water with the peaceful flickering of a fire.
  • The “Five more minutes!” kids will appreciate the fire pit as a place to warm up when they finally do call it a night, and a fire pit also extends the useful season of your pool area.

Outdoor kitchens


  • One sure way to get kids (or adults) out of the pool is to serve a meal.
  • The downside of food at the pool is that you either have to carry everything out from the kitchen or tolerate wet feet tracking into the house to eat.
  • A great way to avoid either problem is to build an outdoor kitchen at the pool. It can include cooking, refrigeration, and even a custom outdoor bar set for adult beverages later on.
  • This will enhance your time in the water while saving you the inconvenience of mopping.
