The Top Features to Add to Your Pool This Year

 In Backyard Design, Backyard Living

Do you want to transform your backyard into a private oasis? There’s no better way to make your outdoor space gorgeous and relaxing than by investing in new pool features. From technical to aesthetic features, these changes will wow your guests and make you feel like you have a resort right outside your door. Shoreline Pools has been servicing and building swimming pools for over 50 years, so you can trust that we can assist you in building the backyard of your dreams.

Majestic Waterfalls

If natural and elegant is the vibe you crave, look no further than picturesque waterfall structures. The rock formations create the illusion that you are at a private lagoon. The tranquil sound of the water rushing can drown out surrounding noise, secluding you in your secluded paradise. Not to mention, waterfalls circulate pool water, which keeps algae from forming.

Make a Splash with a Waterslide

Looking for something that will provide fun for hours on end? Adding a slide to your pool will entertain kids and bring out the inner child in adults. Plus, unlike at waterparks, there is no wait! With some thoughtful planning and design with Shoreline Pools, your waterslide can seamlessly blend into the rest of the backyard and serve as the perfect crowd-pleaser.

Illuminate the Night with LED Lighting

When the sun sets, it’s time to turn the pool lights on. Even though the light is crucial for safe swimming, that does not mean it has to be boring. Switching to an LED lightbulb can bring your pool party to a whole new level. LED lightbulbs come in assorted colors; some even let you change colors with the click of a button!

Switching from an incandescent bulb to an LED bulb can also curb any unnecessary spending. Incandescent light bulbs burn out faster, meaning they need to be replaced more often. LED bulbs produce the same amount of light using less energy and provide long-lasting fun for a colorful night swim.

Get Some Sunshine with a Sun Shelf

Also known as a tanning shelf, a Baja shelf, or a Shamu shelf, these low areas are perfect for relaxing in the water and soaking up the sun. Sun shelves are flat sections of the pool that are less than two feet deep. No matter the shape of your pool, a sun shelf can blend effortlessly into the existing area. Not only is it good for tanning, but it can also be a place for young children to get acclimated to the water. Sun shelves can help you get the most out of your pool in the summer: the low depth is accessible to all, and you do not have to change into your swimsuit to enjoy the refreshing water.

Relax in an In-ground Spa

What is more soothing than hot water after a long day? With an in-ground spa built next to your pool, you can get the best of both worlds when it comes to relaxing in the water. For those with aching muscles, a spa is an ideal place to let that tension melt away. Let the jets massage you, and the bubbling sounds ease you into a sense of peace. Trying to decide between an in-ground spa and a hot tub? Let Shoreline help figure out which one is best for your needs and your backyard aesthetic.
