Reconstruction or Renovation

Over a period, probably, you feel your swimming pool is not as attractive as the new ones that your friends have built or you may feel that the aesthetics of the pool has outlived its dream tenure and needs drastic renovation. Alternatively, you might feel that the existing pool lacks amenities and you wish to bring it up-to-date with modern accessories and facilities. However, short of demolishing and re-building, you have several options to get your swimming pool a very new look and satisfy your dreams.

Vinyl or Gunite

Gunite Pools are a blend of steel frame, rods, and wire with a spray of cement and sand. These are generally easier to build and are more popular in the US. However, these days, vinyl pools are topping the popularity charts because they are less expensive and easier to build or refurbish. You can easily make over an old vinyl pool by just adding a new liner, with a few new decks to give the grand impression of an expensive gunite pool. Pool remodeling, therefore, offers myriad possibilities for a healthy and attractive beautification process.

Greenery

Lovely green plants add to the aesthetic value of every swimming pool, whether it is a new or remodeled one. However, take care to ensure that you always keep these plants properly trimmed and in control so that they do not drop leaves into the pools or encourage bird's litter to defile the deck. While selecting your plants, make sure that you have a blend of palm trees, ferns and luscious flora that grow well with little water. A row of coniferous trees along your poolside will surely provide shade and privacy all around the year.

Pool house

A pool house would be a welcome addition to any remodeling plan. You would do well to plan a prefabricated shed with facilities to store your poolside accessories including bath towels, shower caps etc., and a convenient change room for your guests.

Add a Spa

You could consider designing a small spa within the existing facilities, to add glamour to your pool. Consider using the pumping equipment not only to pump hot water into the pool but also to supply hot water to your mini spa. If you follow some of the innovative books on how to recover installation and operating costs, you will stand to gain considerably.

Waterfall

A truly innovative plan for pool remodeling will include a truly majestic cascading waterfall, built from rocks and boulders. You also have the wonderful option to consider ready-made DIY waterfalls or something more dramatic like a bigger waterfall with a beautiful reservoir.
