Summer is here!...Okay, not yet, but in just a few months our kids will be out of school and we will all be planning backyard barbecues with friends and family. But first, we need to make sure our pools and backyards are ready. I have composed some planning tips to help this "2021" summer-to-remember be the best one yet!!

DON'T HAVE A POOL? 

WELL, IT'S NOT TOO LATE TO TAKE A PLUNG IN THE FUN!

If you are building a new pool or renovating an existing pool, here are some things to consider:  

Add a tanning ledge. What? That shallow area at the edge of the pool.  That would be a perfect place to set a floating day bed and on a typical Miami summer day watch your young kids splash and play or sip on a delicious margarita and read a book!

 Or you can make it rain!... Water features like fountains, jets, and waterfalls can give your pool a tropical resort feel.   You can create the ideal staycation atmosphere, with soothing water sounds and baskets filled with rolled towels, for a close and comfortable reach!


 Light it up! Adding lighting in and around your pool can take the nighttime fun to a new level.  Purchase floating candles and drop then into the pool for a romantic night.  Even call in a masseuse and relax with your partner. 


 And finally and most importantly… jump in to your pool! Of course, the best pool-related resolution you can make is to use your pool or spa more often. Host swim parties for the kids. Plan dinner parties with your gorgeous pool as the backdrop. Take your laptop outside on work-from-home days and enjoy a little extra poolside or, combine your fitness resolution with your pool resolution and make lap swimming part of your workout routine.

RESOLVING TO GET THE MOST FROM YOUR SWIMMING POOL INVESTMENT...IS THE KEY

Ultimately all the suggestions above have one thing in common: helping you get more return on your initial pool investment. From more fun to enhanced pool experience, you can’t go wrong with any of these exciting resolutions.   Contact me Veronica Gunnarsson and lets talk about your house goals for the years ahead.
