With the weather heating up, it’s time to roll back the pool cover and get your pool area ready for summer. In this blog we share a few tips to help you ready your pool area for summer, from decorative ideas, to inventive ways to use the pool surrounds, to pool safety tips.
Deck it out
If you’re going to be spending a lot of time outdoors this summer, it’s a good idea to invest in some pool area accessories. Buy some comfy deckchairs, a small table for snacks and drinks, and some ambient lighting and let the summer vibes begin. For aesthetics, why not add a few poolside plants or even a water feature to highlight your concrete pool area. Last but not least, be sure to purchase some floaties and other pool toys for the kids.
Invest in a shade cloth
While going for a swim is a great way to beat the heat on a hot summer’s day, you still have to be mindful of harmful UV rays. In addition to general sun-safe measures like keeping sunscreen on hand and wearing protective clothing, why not cover your concrete pool area with a shade cloth? Not only will this protect you and your family from the intense summer sun, it will also add a decorative design element to your pool area.
Ensure your pool area is safe before the summer holidays by checking that your pool gate and fence is in working order. Make sure that all latches work properly and that your pool gate complies with council guidelines before use. It’s also a good idea to brief your kids on general pool safety before using the pool, and remember to always make sure they are supervised.
Refurbish your concrete pool area
If your concrete pool area is looking a bit worse for wear it may be time for a refurbishment. A textured concrete finish such as exposed aggregate is perfect for pool surrounds as it is durable, non-slip and pleasing to the eye.
