Does Your Scottsdale Pool Have a Focal Point for Winter Gatherings?
Scottsdale can sometimes feel like it has one continual summer, but the temperatures do eventually drop, and the “winter” season can even get a bit nippy at times. While you may not be up for swimming, you may still enjoy sitting outside when the weather is temperate, and your pool can be the perfect gathering spot for entertaining. After all, it’s already set up to do the job all summer long.
To ensure that your pool is ready for winter entertaining, you’ll need to think about some custom pool features that aren’t focused on the swimming. You can either add these features when you are getting a new pool, or you can work with a contractor on some custom pool remodeling.
Here are a few features you might want to add to be the focal point for your winter entertaining:
What better way to entertain guests than to grill up some burgers or some steaks by the pool? Guests can kick up their feet on a lounge chair while they watch the soothing water and you cook. The heat from the barbecue will feel nice against the crisp, winter air.
The great thing about a pool barbecue is that you can use it all year long. It will be perfect for summer cook outs, as well.
Instead of grilling burgers, try roasting marshmallows instead. With a fire pit, you can make s’mores, roast marshmallows, or even grill hot dogs on a stick. Or you can just sit and chat by the fire with a few drinks.
A fire pit is great for everyone. Kids will love watching the fire and eating treats, and adults will love sharing stories over the fire. The fire is also nice to look at and is warming.
Sometimes, it’s nice just to sit by the pool and chat or share drinks. The water is nice to look at by itself, but if you add underwater lights, you’ll create an even more beautiful display. The lights will seem to dance as the water moves softly with the wind or from the subtle push of the pool pump. Add some gorgeous landscaping and lighting around the pool to create a truly beautiful and calming scene. Additionally, now that you are not using your pool as much is the perfect time for a Scottsdale custom pool remodel.
Scottsdale has temperate winters. In fact, those from Northern climates may find the winters downright “warm.” So you might actually enjoy swimming on the warmer days or nights. If you have a spa, you can enjoy a warm soak even on the chillier nights. The warm water will be a nice contrast to the crisp air.
