Swimming pools are never complete without lights. Illuminating the area around the pool not only beautifies your landscape, it also keeps your family secure and safe. Aside from aesthetic and safety reasons, landscape and outdoor lights can extend the hours having fun with friends or entertaining your guests.
There are different lighting methods used by homeowners and sometimes, these methods are combined to produce a desired effect.
- Uplighting adds drama and turns trees, ponds, and walls into elegant spectacles.
- Downlighting mimics the light cast by the moon at night, and considered a natural lighting method.
- Pathlighting consists of lights lined along pathways to illuminate the steps for safety.
Lighting your pool
Lights along the border of the swimming pool are a very common sight simply because it’s a beautiful way to showcase the pool at night. This highlights the pool’s rim and spreads light across the surface.
Aside from lighting the pool, you can also use lamp post lights to enhance the landscape. This adds to the illumination that guides your family or guests to safety. It makes the entire scenery more visible so you can appreciate the beauty of your landscape at night.
If safety, security and enjoyment are your utmost concern, make sure to have a lighting plan for your pool area. Check our Backyard Ocean’s outdoor lighting options for your swimming pool.
