Pool Lighting Trends For 2020
Now that summer finally arrived, it’s time to put your favorite feature of the house to excellent use! Swimming pools are great additions to backyards, and they deserve ample use during the day and night. Pool lighting enhances the experience by creating a peaceful and fun backyard ambiance that everyone loves. Homeowners, if you haven’t already, it’s not too late to update your pool by installing vibrant lights for added flavor to your backyard!
Upgrade Your Pool with LED Lights
Light-Emitting Diodes (LED) lights are the most popular type of lighting for a pool because they are bright, durable, and energy-efficient. Moreover, LED lights use 80% less energy consumption than other pool lights. Even better, pool owners can add these light fixtures to any pool design and type! LED lights can last up to 15 years, which takes the stress of replacing them, off the homeowners’ back. These lights can brighten up your 16×28 foot pool with ease, so the fun doesn’t have to stop after sundown. LED lights are easy to install, which is always a deciding factor when searching for the perfect pool lighting. LED lights come with amazing features like a dimming ability and the ability to produce different colors by the push of a button.
Fun with Floating Lights
Floating pool lights are a fun way to add some light and extra creativity to your pool without the commitment. Floating pool lights come in different shapes like cubes, spheres, moons, and eggs. They also range in sizes small, medium, and large to fit everyone’s pool type. Some of these lights have 16 different light colors to choose from that can change through mobile apps or remote controls. These floating lights are rechargeable so you never have to worry about replacements. Floating lights are, of course, waterproof, durable, eco-friendly, and are free from UV, lead, and mercury. These floating lights are kid-friendly and add vibrant colorful details to any pool.
A Dazzling Display with Fiber Optic Lights
Fiber optic light bulbs are located in a dry box on the pool patio as opposed to directly in the pool. The light from the bulb travels through the fiber optic cable from the dry box into the pool wall where the cable ends. The end of the cable emits light while illuminating the pool. Since the fiber optic light isn’t as bright as LED lights, this option may be more suitable for pool owners seeking a small amount of ambient lighting. These lights can be fun to add a shape, color, or pattern to the pool to give it a starry effect. Fiber optic lights are easily accessible because they are above water, which means changing the bulbs should only take 5 minutes compared to 15-20 minutes with other pool light fixtures. Fiber optic lights do not produce any heat; instead, they are moisture-resistant, and waterproof, allowing the lights to submerge in water without any damage.
Luxurious Lighting Trends
Lighting within and around the pool area gives your backyard space a luxurious feel. More importantly, lighting fixtures add creativity, as well as a calm ambiance that you’ll enjoy on the warmest summer nights. Incorporating any one of these 2020 pool lighting trends to your backyard will irradiate your nighttime swim experience! Looking to update your pool this summer?
