If your pool looks worn or dated by the end of the summer, it’s the perfect time to get a pool remodeling! Luckily, remodeling your pool doesn’t need to break the bank. There are many easy, inexpensive ways to remodel your pool that will nevertheless breathe new life into it.
The Top Five Methods to Update Your Pool
1. Replace Tiling
Update the tiling surrounding the inner pool edge. This is a great pool restoration option because the waterline tile is highly visible, even to those not in the pool. This tiling is available in various color and material options and is sure to add a beautiful splash of color to your backyard. Plus, they are great for disguising the scum ring that can form at your pool’s waterline.
2. Replace Coping
The coping is the tile or stone that surrounds the outside edge of the pool and separates it from the deck. It is like a picture frame for your pool! Coping can be made from many materials, such as concrete or brick. Natural stones like marble and quartzite can also be used. If your current coping is becoming cracked or weathered, then consider updating your coping.
3. Replaster Your Pool
Like houses occasionally need to replace their carpet, pools sometimes need to be replastered. Replastering or resurfacing your pool is an excellent option if you have a larger budget. If your pool surface is becoming chipped, cracked, stained, discolored, or rough, then it is high time to replaster your pool. This will prevent pool leaks and bloody toes.
4. Tanning Ledges
A tanning ledge (also known as a Baja shelf or sun shelf) is a great addition to any pool. A tanning ledge is a shallow shelf in the pool that is just deep enough to submerge you in the water without having to float or swim. Many people put furniture such as lounge chairs or umbrellas in their tanning ledges.
This feature can be especially nice for those who don’t want to get their hair wet or for people who want to avoid getting sunburned. Tanning ledges also provide a place for people to sit and enjoy the pool view while not swimming.
5. Water Features
Finally, adding water features can improve the look and feel of an otherwise unassuming pool. Fire pits are a popular and relatively inexpensive option. Other features that work well with existing pool structures include water-spouting structures, rock waterfalls, and stone pillars. With so many options available, there is sure to be something for you!
