Whether you inherited a house with an existing pool or have owned one for years, giving it a makeover can bring excitement and novelty back into your outdoor space making it feel like your own personal resort. So if you have ever worried about safety concerns due to foot traffic, weather changes, and other pool headaches it’s time to let go and fully enjoy your relaxing moments by the pool this summer.

So, let’s get a head start on planning for Summer 2024 by designing your dream inground swimming pool today! Need some inspiration? Look no further – here are some ideas to inspire your pool remodel in 2024:

  • Install a stunning water feature

Adding a water feature to your pool design can create a visually pleasing and calming atmosphere in your new pool area. The gentle sound of flowing water can help to create a peaceful and relaxing ambiance, and the sight of the water cascading down can also be visually appealing, adding an element of beauty and tranquility to the pool area.

Whether it is a small, trickling waterfall, a grand fountain, or a full spillover spa, the addition of water features can enhance the overall aesthetic of your pool area and create a serene environment for relaxation. But keep in mind that dedicated waterfall pumps can increase your operating costs by $30 to $50 a month, per pump. So it’s best to work with a professional on your design so you can understand the cost associated with adding each water feature before you commit to your pool remodel.

  • Upgrade your pool deck

Consider replacing old or outdated decking with modern materials like natural stone or composite decking for a more aesthetically pleasing and durable surface around your inground swimming pool. Not only is this material gorgeous but it is also low-maintenance so you can enjoy your space more!

We get that the process of tearing out the old pool deck and replacing it can sound quite time-consuming, stressful, and intimidating. But, when you choose to partner with a company like MasterPLAN you can count on much less downtime, expedited delivery, and a process that is simple, easy, and fun the entire time!

  • Install a pergola or shade structure

Create a comfortable and shaded area by adding a pergola or attached roof structure, allowing you to relax by the poolside without worrying about excessive sun exposure or other elements.

Adding a roof to complement your new inground swimming pool truly makes your new space a multi-season room. This could potentially extend the use of your space to up to 10 months out of the year if you add the right comfort features like infrared heaters or a fire table.
