It’s amazing what a little illumination can do for your swimming pool. Even the best pool designs can seem like they’re lacking something if the lighting isn’t just right. 

During the design and building process, consider the following lighting tips to give your Austin swimming pool just the right vibe.

Lighting Around the Pool’s External Perimeter

Lighting inside the pool has become a staple in today’s modern pool design. But adding lighting around the outer perimeter might be an additional layer of lightning you may want to consider. Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, but it can also serve a functional purpose by providing light when you and your family and guests are trekking around the pool after the sun sets. 

While you’re at it, consider adding lights along backyard pathways and your patio for full effect.

Colored Light Bulbs

The soft, white lighting that’s typical of pool lighting offers a classic look, but you may want to kick things up a notch and add colored bulbs to your pool area. While you can always keep the white lights for the most part, having colored bulbs that change colors with the push of a button can give you the opportunity to change up the vibe of your pool area on a whim. 

Whether you want to create a classic, romantic, and subdued look with white lights or want to liven up the mood for a party, having colored bulbs that allow you to choose whichever color you like can make for a highly versatile pool.

Create a Lighting Theme 

Get a professional landscape designer into the mix when designing your pool to help you make the right choices when it comes to coming up with a theme for your pool and the surrounding area. These experts will provide you with sound suggestions and ideas for creating a theme in your backyard. 

Rather than placing lights sporadically around your pool without much forethought, it’s a good idea to consider the balance and overall look of the lighting you choose and where everything will be placed.
