Now that it’s June, summer is about to be in full swing. Is your pool area ready for the many pool parties and backyard barbecues that last well into September? If your pool lighting is outdated or you’re lacking pool lighting altogether, now is the ideal time to incorporate some new outdoor lighting trends into your pool area. These fresh pool lighting ideas will add excitement to your pool area while also ensuring swimmer safety.
Colorful Underwater Lights
Colored lights are one of the most popular ways to illuminate your pool. Colored lights in other areas may seem tacky or a bit overdone but in the pool, colorful lights enhance the mood of late-night summer swimming. With many options for how these lights work, you can choose lights that slowly change colors or maintain your favorite shade. People of all ages will have more fun when swimming in a pool when they feel safe with underwater lights.
Highlight Specific Areas
If you love the idea of colored underwater lights, take them outside the pool, and illuminate specific areas. This is a great way to incorporate colored lights while also highlighting specific areas of your backyard. If you have a favorite tree or, perhaps, a volleyball or badminton court, light up these areas with some colored outdoor lighting to set them apart from the pool and give them their own look.
Lights That Float
Floating lights are fun new pool lighting idea that will enhance the overall look of your pool. If you’re throwing an elegant, poolside cocktail party where swimming isn’t necessarily part of the event, floating lights will enhance the look of the pool by adding a timeless, warm glow. It’s also helpful in that people can see the pool itself more easily and won’t make the mistake of falling in. There are many floating lights that are waterproof and won’t break easily so you can use them summer after summer.
