Cozy seating areas and bedrooms get more indirect lighting … out bathrooms get that blinding light so we can see every character flaw needing correcting before we go public.
Like our great homes, great pools are significantly defined by lighting as well. Nature gives us a hint of this by providing the sun by day and the moon by night. Lighting will set the tone and help distinguish your pool as unique. Continue Reading

Looking at the long-term costs of owning a swimming pool as compared to paying for a gym membership, you can see the benefits of making an investment into a swimming pool of your own.
