Paint offers a number of pool decor options, including a range of colors and possible color combinations, the ability to use stencils to create a border or overall design and the possibility of painting a mural on the pool walls or floor. Tiling with slip- and chemical-resistant tiles also offers options for an array of borders and patterned designs. Non-adhesive drop-in mosaic pool mats, wall magnets and decals are among the many colorful and easily changed pool decor options available.
Lighting the bottom of the pool or placing lights along the sides of the pool not only makes it possible to swim in the dark but adds a magical element to the decor and ambiance of an outdoor setting. Installing a rock fountain and adding large rocks around the rim of the pool are decorating options that lend a more natural feel to a pool. Placing chlorine-resistant potted plants and foliage around the pool deck is a decor approach to highlight the pool while integrating it with other landscaping features.
In mild climates where outdoor living doesn't end as fall begins, decorating the pool and pool deck for the season is also an option. Placing hardy, colorful fall mums in containers on the pool deck, adding a portable fire pit poolside, adding cushions and throws in the colors of fall and changing the pool lights to red and green in December are just some seasonal pool decor options.
