It's not quite summer yet, but now that the weekend is here and warm weather is in the forecast... lounging poolside is on the list of things to do. Adding outdoor lighting around your pool can extend your summer fun into the evening hours. When properly done, it creates a unique ambiance and makes hazardous areas like steps, walkways, and pool edges safer.
Whether round, rectangular, or asymmetrical shape, a custom pool lighting design will create the perfect atmosphere for late-night relaxing or entertaining while also increasing functionality and safety at night.
