If you have a pool in your backyard, you’re probably already the hit of your friends and family. There truly aren’t many things in this world that could make a backyard more fun than a sparkling pool. Spending hours and hours in a pool on any given summer day truly makes you feel like you’re in paradise. There are always ways to spruce up your pool area though, and if you want to take your pool experience to the next level, consider adding some of these things to make those pool days much more enjoyable.

Outdoor Patio Heater

Adding an outdoor patio heater to your pool area will make it more visually and physically appealing. You can find gas powered patio heaters from websites like gasoutdoorpatioheaters.comthat come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Some outdoor patio heaters have beautiful real flames that will make your pool area look like something out of spread from a travel magazine. Others simply offer heat. An outdoor patio heater is great especially if you enjoy night swimming, since you’ll heat up very quickly standing or sitting near it after you get out of the pool. Putting multiple patio heaters around your pool area will keep you and all of your guests warm!

Tiki Torches

you still want to make your pool more visually appealing but don’t want to spend the extra money on an outdoor patio heater (or if you live in an area warm enough that you don’t need a heater) then you should consider buying some tiki torches and putting them around your pool. Tiki torches are very inexpensive, usually less then $5 a torch, and will make your pool look like it’s a tropical island. You can even make your own tiki torchesif you’re feeling crafty. Even just adding one torch will make your backyard look awesome, but the more the merrier! A tiki torch will light up your pool area at night and your guests will enjoy their beauty.

Waterslide 

If you really want to make your pool the hit of your neighborhood, you need to install a waterslide. Not only will putting a waterslide into your pool make your pool that much better, but it will also increase the value of your home. No matter the size of your pool, you should be able to find an adequately sized waterslide that will fit your pool. With diving boards now illegal in some states, waterslides are becoming the more appealing (and much more fun) option. What are you waiting for, go install a waterslide today!

Fire Pit

Putting a fire pit near your pool will make those nights you spend swimming so much more enjoyable. Find a fire pit that fits the design of your pool, and place it near your pool with some patio furniture around it so you can heat up quickly after you jump out of the pool. Adding a fire pit will make your pool area look absolutely amazing, and it’s a very affordable addition to your backyard.
