Create an aquatic experience with these pool lighting ideas
Lighting systems can consist of single or multiple colours
Produce a beautiful effect with different colour lights placed strategically around the pool, and include lights with reflective qualities for enhanced “WOW”.
Lighting embedded in walls
If you’re looking for the stunning effect of a soft glow over the pool, placing lighting in walls can be used to fantastic effect.
Programmable computerised colour wheel
Take the mood-enhancing benefit of lighting systems a notch further with a computerised colour wheel that is programmed to change colours to create a particular mood. This is a great investment especially if you entertain a lot.
Highlight architectural outdoor elements with purposefully placed lights
Position spot lights advantageously to shine onto trees or splash onto pathways for a sculptural effect. Pedestal and tiered lamps are a good alternative if your environment cannot accommodate concealed lamps.
