Your swimming pool is the focal point of your backyard, where people gather to enjoy the sunshine and cool off. But if it isn't kept up well, pool decks can be an eyesore. Read our tips below on how to turn your backyard pool into an immersive retreat!

Pool Deck Repairs A structurally sound pool deck is a must. Before you begin decorating, make sure everything is in tip-top shape. A crack or faded deck can't be hidden with even the best decor.

Furniture The biggest feature of your pool deck is the furniture. Stray away from the average deck furniture and include some unique lounge chairs. wicker furniture, or even a plush outdoor set. Throw in some pillows/cushions for ultimate relaxation in the sun.


Treat the space like an extra room. Designer and author Johnathan Adler says, “Decorate the pool area the way you would your home.” He recommends decorating your space with not just low loungers, but also a comfortable couch and even a hanging chair. “As long as it’s all waterproof, the sky’s the limit. I’m all-Sunbrella, all the time.”

Lighting Pool deck lighting is a must have safety feature. String up some trendy globe lights and make sure to add lighting around the steps!
