If you’ve been staring at your Tampa Bay backyard wondering what you can do to turn it into the outdoor living oasis you’ve always dreamed of, then now’s the perfect time to consider just a few of these design possibilities to bring the indoors out. Creating an at-home resort is a perfect way to maximize your time at home while having a noteworthy escape a mere steps away from home.
1. Infinity Pool
Yes, even the most exclusive pool design associated with the most exotic resorts can be added to your backyard. Regardless of the view, an infinity pool creates a mesmerizing visual effect, showcasing a smooth, glass-like surface while giving the impression that your pool stretches forever into the horizon.
2. Swim-Up Bars and Sunken Patios
This pool design treats you and your guests like royalty. Splash up to the bar to enjoy a cool beverage in the warm sun while engaging in conversation with friends on the patio. Swim-up bars and sunken patios are the perfect options for those who like to entertain and offer their friends and family a space to do so.
3. Ambient Lighting
LED lights add a variety of colors that brighten up your pool design while saving you money on energy so you can embrace night swimming at last! Have you also considered fire features? Fire adds a very special ambiance to your poolscape, giving off an ethereal vibe that’s both regal and mysterious.
4. Darker Pool Hues and Energy-Efficient Pool Equipment
Most traditional pools are painted light blue to create the illusion of water the color of shallow waters around a tropical island. But when you incorporate darker colors into your pool design, you create more of a lagoon look — AND the pool retains heat better which reduces your heating cost during cooler weather.
If you’re concerned with the cost associated with energy consumption, you can also consider adding energy-efficient pool equipment to your pool design. Solar heaters, LED lighting, variable-speed pumps and cartridge filters all help you cut costs.
5. Caves and Rocky Grottos
Rocky grottos are classic, but modern pools now also include caves. When matched with a cascading waterfall, you’ve suddenly created a shady, relaxing spot to calm your senses and give you and your guests relief from the sun.
6. Outdoor Kitchen
Constantly running from your pool back to the kitchen (with wet feet) is inconvenient and can keep you from sitting and enjoying the company of your friends and family. Outdoor kitchens can be as simple or as complex as you want. You could opt for a standard barbecue with an extra counter for food prep and serving, or you can go all out with stoves, refrigerators, a sink and even a TV!
