The weather may be getting colder, but that doesn't mean the good times on the patio and in the swimming pool need to come to an end. As a top Houston pool builder, we've compiled a list of ways to keep your swimming pool and hot tub area fun during the fall and winter months:
1. Bring On the Heat to Your Katy Backyard
Adding a heat source is one sure way to create an inviting outdoor space for yourselves and guests to enjoy. Choose from tabletop designs or full-sized patio and deck heaters to add both warmth and ambiance to your swimming pool and patio area.
Perhaps you could even add a pool heater to keep your Katy or Fulshear swimming pool nice and warm no matter the weather. Energy-efficient swimming pool heaters will provide unlimited fun without adding too much to your energy bill.
2. Swimming Pool Fire Features
A heat source may make the area warm, but swimming pool fire features are what will draw friends and family outdoors. From simple firepits and ornate firebowls to stately outdoor fireplaces, homeowners can pick and choose the features they want to create the atmosphere they desire.
3. Dress Up Your Katy Backyard
Adding a bit of wintry décor is a great way to add some flair to your swimming pool and backyard patio area, even if you aren't outdoors. Choose a selection of staple winter items that continue to be in season even after the holidays come to an end, such as decorative winter wreaths and fern trees, and place them around your swimming pool and patio.
4. Light Up the Night
Lighting is a must if you want to create a welcoming space outdoors. Strings of white LED lights are an economical way to add some extra twinkle to your Houston area backyard, though there are a number of other options including pathway lights, pot lights, and more. We can show you some amazing custom lighting options at our design center.
5. Change Your Swimming Pool Water Color
Darkness comes sooner during the Houston winter months, which can make the swimming pool and hot tub appear rather dark and dreary. If you change out your standard bulbs with some bright and festive color LED lights, it'll be hard for friends and family to resist taking a dip in your swimming pool.
6. Cover the Patio
Not only are exposed patios during the winter subject to increased wear and tear, but covering the patio or creating an enclosure will create a warmer breeze-free spot for everyone to lounge and enjoy.
7. Make Your Katy Backyard Cozy
Typical plastic patio chairs and loungers may suffice during the summer, but in the winter when it's already difficult to beckon others outdoors, it's all the more important that you add plush outdoor pillows, throws, or even completely replace the furniture on your patio and around the swimming pool and hot tub area.
8. Throw a Party
