Pool Remodeling Ideas That Fit in Your Budget
A total pool renovation is generally a good use of both money and time if you plan to be in your home for the long-term and you take advantage of your pool all year. Now, if your pool could benefit from a smaller makeover, we’ve got a few suggestions based on our experience of maintaining, cleaning and repairing pools for decades.
Our top pool remodeling tips include:
Changing the Tile at the Waterline
A small remodeling project that can go a long way in updating the look of a pool is updating the waterline tile. There are so many modern and contemporary choices to choose from that the sky’s the limit!
Replastering or Resurfacing
Replastering or resurfacing your pool is an option if you have a larger budget for remodeling. Replastering and resurfacing improves the look of a pool, while also replacing a worn or uneven surface. Older pools tend to have a simple plaster finish and an update to one of the popular aggregate finishes that come in different colors and adding quartz or even stones might be a good choice when it’s time to make an upgrade.
Swapping in LED Lighting
Many pools have basic lighting or floodlights in the yard, so consider upgrading to LED lights. Like in your home, LED lighting is more energy efficient than traditional options. Lighting is a low-cost way to transform an ordinary pool into an oasis. Homeowners often install LED lights of many different colors below the water or practically anywhere in the pool area.
Adding More Energy-Efficient Equipment
Making it less expensive to operate while adding in new technology focused on efficiency might be a good approach when updating your pool. A variable speed pool pump uses less electricity and may even qualify for an energy rebate from your utility company. Other options to consider include solar-powered features (e.g. lights and heaters) and energy-efficient filters.
Upgrading to an Automation System
As technology is evolving, enhancing our homes, the pool is getting a few new gadgets too. Many of these can easily be retrofitted to older pools. You might consider adding a robotic cleaner, automatic pool cover or even an all-in-one pool automation system, designed to be run via your smartphone.
