Imperial Pool Builders offer outdoor living space and poolside decorating ideas
Swimming pool owners will find that once they have invested in the pool, they don’t want to spend more time indoors than they have to. Because of that, their thoughts turn to the space around the swimming pool and they look for ways to amp up their outdoor living space.
The swimming pool contractors from Imperial Pools in Decatur, Illinois offer some starting points to consider for your own personal outdoor living space.
  • ┬áDetermine your budget. If you have a small budget or if you simply want a simple outdoor living space, invest in one or two quality items that you love and then plant trees or add unique
  • lighting to the area. Perhaps you want a waterfall feature for your pool, but it’s cost prohibitive — if that’s the case, invest in a small home-sized waterfall and place it strategically in your outdoor living area.
  • Do you have a fashion sense that you want to extend from your home and your pool into your outdoor living space? If so, let it shine. If not, look to the Internet or magazines for inspiration. Ask us for examples of outdoor living spaces and barbecues we have constructed for our clients.
  • Make a list of all of the items you’d love to have in your backyard living space. You may want to even sketch out how you envision it. Even if you don’t have the budget for the entire project this year, you can whittle away at it over the course of a couple of years. Add a few new pieces every summer until you have the outdoor living space of your dreams. Consider fountains, a gazebo, an outdoor kitchen, unique landscaping, a rock waterfall, in pool lighting, lighting and walkways to and from the pool and the house. Let your imagination run wild.
