Now is the time to consider how you’re going to give your pool and patio area a bit of a facelift in the new year. While there may seemingly be an endless stream of expensive “makeover” options for your pool, there are also a handful of inexpensive pool and patio decor ideas that can revolutionize your outdoor space, starting with:

1. Foliage

The easiest and least expensive way for anyone to give their pool and patio area a complete makeover is to take out or add a number of inexpensive plants and brush that can completely change how the pool area appears. To get a list of the most “pool” friend plants for your area, visit a local nursery and ask them for their recommendations (some local plants are more resistant to chlorine and salt than others!).

2. Lighting

One of the quickest ways for anyone to completely change the appearance of their pool is to give their lighting a bit of a facelift. By taking out those old bulbs and replacing them with new age LEDs (which may or may not be different in color) will drastically change the appearance of your pool. Even wrapping strings of white or colored LEDs around your trees in the backyard can add some more dimension to your nighttime outdoor living space.

3. Throw Cushions

Regardless of how extensive your backyard furniture collection may be, you can quickly and easily update the look of any piece by adding some trendy throw cushions. Many will be weather resistant, though for those that aren’t, just make sure that you bring them in at the end of the night in order to keep them in tip top condition.

4. Rocks

You may not be able to afford having a flowing waterfall tumble down a man made rock grotto, but you can certainly add rock elements around your pool simply by using larger stones and rocks that may already be at your disposal and placing them around the outside of your pool.
