3 Lighting Ideas for Your Poolside Oasis

We all love the warmer months because we can spend more time outside and spending more time with friends and family, but one of the best parts about the nicer weather are when the pools finally open and you can take a dip whenever you want. Night swimming is an ongoing luxury that is fun for the whole family. But night swimming can be dangerous when you aren’t aware of your surroundings. Lighting your poolside with outdoor lighting not only makes night swimming enjoyable but it also makes it safer to swim and walk around after dark. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, we install poolside lighting to highlight every aspect of your property around your pool. If you’re looking to install outdoor lighting around your pool, then here are 3 lighting ideas to consider.

1.Pathway Lighting:

Do you have pathways leading up to your pool or running behind your pool? Or maybe you even have a pathway leading up to the stairs of your waterslide? Pathway lighting is the most one of the most common ways to illuminate your poolside oasis. Maybe you want a timeless look and feel to your poolside pathway lighting? Our classic, high-quality path lights are an excellent option. Want something more unique? Try our decorative bollard lights! They emit beautiful shapes and shadows on the ground at night to add a fun whimsical experience to your night swimming.

2. Landscape Lighting:

Add some lights to your landscape! Ideal for foliage or landscaping surrounding your pool deck, landscape lighting will show off your entire backyard retreat while keeping your property glowing through the night. Having landscape lighting also helps increase safe passage and footing when you are done swimming for the night.

3. Stairway Lighting:

If you have stairs around your pool, then stairway lighting should be a part of your outdoor lighting design! Stair lighting allows you, as well as any guests visiting for your nighttime pool party, to safely walk down the steps and avoid a potential fall in the pool! Whether or not you have a waterslide, adding stair lighting is probably the most important thing to do if you are going to stay out late to swim after hours.

If you enjoy swimming at night and don’t have proper poolside lighting, then consider in investing in high-quality outdoor lighting so your night can be properly illuminated while you continue to lounge by the pool. Every day at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives, we install beautiful outdoor lighting systems in backyards that our clients fall in love with year after year. Make your nights brighter and let OLP transform your nighttime swimming experience!
