You picked the perfect spot. You spent hours trying to choose the size, shape and material: Check, check, and check! You’ve been enjoying your super-amazing pool for a while now, and lately you find yourself wanting to make your pool just a teensy-bit-more-super-amazing. You, swim-fan, are in luck!
It doesn’t take a full-on makeover, or even a bucket of cash, to take yourself from “having a pool”, to “being super cool”. A great place to begin, is the lighting. You’ve probably got a light out there somewhere. Maybe it’s the one outside the back door to keep you from tripping over the garden hose, or maybe you were feeling a little fancy, and installed a light way down there, inside the pool. Nice, but that’s barely a start.
That single, lonely light, is just that: single and lonely (and also a little bit lame). One light doesn’t do much for nighttime swimming. But, what will, you ask? Lots more lighting! You can flood your pool area with lots of crispy-bright lighting, and when we speak of flooding your pool with light, we most certainly do not mean floodlights, and we are definitely steering clear of spotlights. We are not at a football game, and we are not at the circus. Apologies to the quarterbacks, and the clowns.
For your pool area, you need to check out lighting with LED strips. LED strips offer an even level of light, across the entire area. Thanks to the LED part, you just saved yourself some cash. (Well done.)There are lots of wireless options that allow you to control zones and brightness. With just a click of your nifty new remote control, you’ve just mastered “atmosphere”.
Now things are getting interesting! You’ve already got yourself control of brightness and zone (thank you tiny remote-wizard), that means it’s time to get things really poppin’–with color!
The strategic use of color can be a real game-changer. You can go all Pink Floyd, and create a light show all your own, or maybe you just want to set the mood, with some soft color here, and a little dimmer over there.
Whether you’re aiming for Justin Timberlake, or Freddie Mercury, the energy level, mood, and feel can all be affected by great color lighting. You can use pattern lighting to help keep the night energized, or create an elegant feel with simple, clean, white lights. If you can’t decide, pick a color-changing light.
Color lighting inside your pool is a whole other-level of coolness. With special lighting, you can change the look of the pool’s surface, the color of the water, and even the visibility.
Regardless of the intention, it’s time to get rid of that old fiber optic lighting. The vibrancy is gone, and the color left the building a long time ago. Time to welcome some LED into your life, and it’s also time to shine some light on that great pool of yours!
