Pool Renovation Ideas for 2023

Pool renovation ideas for your backyard.

What does a pool renovation look like in 2023? There are plenty of ways to help transform your in-ground pool into a more functional and visually appealing space. Whether you opt for just a liner replacement or a complete backyard makeover, the coming swim season offers you new opportunities to reimagine your backyard oasis.

Pool Renovation Ideas

At Goodall Pools & Spas, we’ve always said that a pool renovation can be as simple or as extensive as you want it to be. Here, we’ve provided a few ideas to get the gears turning in your mind. 

1. Replace the pool liner.

One of the most effective ways to update the look and function of your in-ground pool is to replace the liner. If your pool has a concrete finish, consider applying a new coat, which can give your pool a fresh, strong surface. If your pool has a vinyl liner, it may be time for a liner replacement if you notice wrinkles, tears, sagging, or discoloration. A new liner can help improve the overall look of your pool and protect it from structural damage.

Feel free to play with colors when it comes to your new liner. Whether you prefer traditional blues or a patterned tan for a sandy beach look, you have options!

2. Automate your pool equipment.

Are your pool’s pump, filter, and heater working properly? Excellent! Now, consider adding automation to your pool’s equipment that allows you to control your pool’s functions from your phone or tablet. If you accidentally forgot to turn the pump off before you left for a night out, no worries! Your remote connection to your equipment pad will fix that with a few swipes and taps.

3. Add new custom features.

To add some fun and functionality to your in-ground pool, consider installing custom water features like cascades, deck jets, or fountains to create a dynamic and visually appealing space. You could also add structural features like steps, tanning ledges, or even a spa.

4. Update the pool’s lighting.

Updating the lighting in your pool can greatly impact the overall look and feel of the environment. Consider installing LED lights, which are more energy efficient and last longer than traditional pool lights. You can also add color-changing lights for a fun, vibrant effect.

5. Landscape the area around the pool.

The area around your pool is just as important as the pool itself. So update the landscaping to create a cohesive, attractive look. This might include adding vegetation or installing a new patio or deck. Also, think about how new furniture, like our Ledge Lounger in-pool and poolside pieces, can make your space more comfortable and inviting.

6. Upgrade the pool coping and decking.

The pool coping and pool deck play a critical role in your pool’s overall function. They help protect the underlying structure of the pool and provide a solid space for walking around the water. If your pool’s coping is old or damaged with cracks or stains, it might be time to replace it. For the decking, a  new concrete finish, for example, can be textured for slip resistance. It can also be stamped to mimic the look of natural stone or brick. 

7. Install a new pool enclosure.

Pennsylvania state law requires that all residential pools be enclosed by a fence or other barrier to prevent accidental drowning. If your enclosure is looking a little dated, brainstorm some new ideas to enhance the look and safety of your pool area. 

Go for a more upscale look with a wrought iron fence. Or give the environment a more rustic feel with a richly colored wooden fence.
