7 Pool Trends That Are Huge in 2016
And will still be hot for 2017
Remember when you were a kid and all you wanted in life was to have a swimming pool in your backyard? Well, if you’re lucky enough to have made that childhood dream a reality, we have some fun upgrades to consider that will turn your personal pool into an enviable oasis.
The easiest way to upgrade your pool: a silly float. The bigger, the better (both for sheer fun and killer Instagrams). Plus, today’s trendy inflatables come in all sorts of shapes (from a sprinkled doughnut to a glitzy Pegasus) so you can easily cater them to your personal taste.
Also called baja benches, these shallow sitting areas are perfect for cooling off--without having to get fully drenched. Cocktails and sunscreen are strongly encouraged.
Wraparound infinity pools
Why settle for one invisible edge when you can have the entire pool built that way? Sure, it requires a bit more real estate, but a girl can dream.
Colored LED lighting
But if you have to go with just one invisible ledge, jazz things up with a splash of LED lighting. (In all seriousness, though, this is an easy addition to any pool if you’re hosting a last-minute summertime soiree.)
These gas-powered fire bowls can easily be switched on and off to provide light and a bit of warmth during those chilly end-of-summer evenings.
Line the perimeter of the pool to really make a splash.
