Movie lovers should never have to choose between a swim and a double feature – and, with this pool deck design – you do not have to. Simply decorate your pool deck with an outdoor projector and some comfortable loungers. If you love movie snacks, add a popcorn machine or mini fridge.

Do you wish every day could be a resort day? If you love vacations but cannot be away from home all the time, make your pool your personal resort! Set up resort style pool chairs and shade umbrellas to bring the vacation to you. Looking for a tropical vibe? Plant some tropical plants around your pool to create that style.

Some pools become a community go-to for the local kids. If your family hosts a lot of kids events and parties, you can easily decorate your pool deck to turn it into a fun zone! Start with furniture that doubles as pool toy storage. Add some kid-friendly furniture and maybe even a playground in another part of the yard. Remember to double check that all safety needs are met!
