Your poolside isn’t just a place to swim; it’s a haven for relaxation, entertainment and making lasting memories. With thoughtful poolside decor, you can transform this space into a luxurious oasis reflecting your personal style and enhancing your outdoor living experience.

6 Luxurious Staples to Complete Your Pool Area

Our pools can serve as an extension of ourselves and our homes. With careful consideration, you’ll be able to transform your outdoor space into a personalized backdrop for life’s greatest moments. These staple features will perfect your ambiance and elevate the enjoyment of it for all. 

Swim-Up Pool Bar

Take poolside entertaining to the next level with a swim-up pool bar. These features are most commonly found at commercial resorts but can just as easily be suited to a residential pool design. As the Lowcountry’s only Master Pools Guild member, Aqua Blue Pools’ designers and builders are particularly suited to achieving your perfect poolside.

Comfortable Seating

Lowcountry pool season is a year-round treat. Our temperate climate creates the perfect conditions for four-season poolside moments. But no cozy space is complete without seating to match. Investing in comfortable outdoor furniture creates an inviting environment perfect for any occasion. 

When choosing your poolside furniture and materials, opt for weather- and water-resistant materials like sunbrella for fabric, and for furniture, go for teak, synthetic resin wicker or composite furniture, or aluminum. Add stylish cushions for an extra pop, and your space is sure to wow guests at first sight. 

Greenery and Landscaping

Never underestimate the power of a manicured garden! Lush greenery and carefully landscaped gardens can enhance your poolside’s natural beauty. These potted plants, flower beds and well-placed trees provide aesthetic appeal and offer shade and privacy. When selecting your poolside ecosystem, be sure to choose plants that thrive in the Lowcountry.

Lighting Ambiance

Well-placed outdoor lighting can establish the perfect mood for any occasion. With so many options, there’s no wrong choice. String lights, lanterns and path lighting can create a warm, inviting atmosphere for guests out of the water. Meanwhile, underwater lights can add extra depth to your atmosphere. Aqua Blue Pools offers a range of lighting options that can be integrated into your existing pool or new construction.

Poolside Fire Features

While a detailed poolside can shine on its own, this luxurious addition increases its allure tenfold. Fire features can extend your enjoyment into the cooler months to ensure year-round enjoyment. Aqua Blue Pools expert designers will work with you to choose installments that complement your space’s overall aesthetic.

Shade Solutions

Sunshine is inviting in crystal clear waters, but even we need a retreat from the intense heat now and then. Shield yourself from the sun’s rays with chic shade options. A pergola with retractable canopies, sail shades or even something as simple as a classic freestanding umbrella can provide convenient relief while adding a touch of elegance to your poolside area.
