Ever been to a Japanese garden, relaxation spa or luxury pool complex and felt a sense of calm wash over you? Chances are the sound of running, trickling or cascading water had plenty to do with it. Water naturally invokes feelings of tranquility, peace and relaxation in us, which is why landscapers, architects and designers choose to include water features when designing these spaces. It’s also why many savvy pool owners choose to add a water feature to their pool.
Pool water features can set a good mood, create a focal point for socialising when you’re entertaining, and enhance your yard with striking visual effects you won’t get sick of.
In this article, we are looking at the ways that a water feature can enhance your home and improve your lifestyle.
Why install a pool water feature?
Set the mood
The sound of water has been proven to positively alter our mood. Aside from a calming and relaxing effect, being surrounded by these sounds can help to declutter the mind and improve focus. With the pressures of modern life so frequently getting us busy, stressed, and burnt out, a tranquil place at home can’t be undervalued!
Enhance your yard
Just like a meal, the better a pool looks, the more we want to dive in! Enhancing your pool with a water feature makes it a multi-sensory experience, with the sight and sound of cascading, rippling or bubbling water making it more memorable all-round. Add some lights and you can carry this effect throughout the night. Fountain-style water features look especially cool at night, so they’re perfect for the frequent entertainer’s pool.
Add value to your home
Properties with attractive, well-maintained backyards and pools achieve higher sales prices because they bring the ‘wow’ factor! Plus, pool water features instantly draw potential buyers in and make your place memorable for them on a day of multiple viewings.
