7. Pool lightsSharp colours, bright light and deep shadows make for an inviting party atmosphere around this pool. WHEN TO USE: This one’s easy: pool lights are best used when you’ve got a pool in your garden.WHAT TO CONSIDER: There’s more to lighting a pool than just, well, lighting the pool. Safety of use, of both the pool and its surrounds, is an obvious consideration. It’s vital that any in-pool lighting is professionally installed, and that the configuration doesn’t create pockets of dark that might lead to someone in trouble going unseen. HOW TO GET THE LOOK: The glow from a lit pool always contributes to the ambience of any poolside entertaining or dining areas. You can emphasise this by installing lights on the non-pool side of the space. Coloured pool lights can be gaudy (which is not always a bad thing) but there are some subtle ones on the market as well. You can also enhance the radiant glow of a lit pool by using a light-reflecting treatment on the pool surface.

7. FeaturesThere are some pretty cool spas around and you can have a lot of fun designing your dream spa. Large acrylic windows can add that wow factor and really make the spa the central focal point all year round. Built-in decks and floating seats around a portable spa can also really create the feeling of integration to a once standalone feature. Floating concrete plinths, glass mosaic tiles, spillovers of four-sided wet edges are features that can really take it to another level. If you opt for a portable spa, you could always upgrade to a swim spa and add in a swim jet and a small plunge pool straight off the shelf. The options are plenty, and throw in some colourful towels on permanent towel racks, an ice bucket with some champagne, a few friends and family and your spa is sure to bring many years of joy and pleasure.

3. Replace bulbs, add new lightsFor after-dark ambience, energy-efficient LED lighting can be fixed above and below the waterline. Make sure all or your bulbs are working for the perfect night-time illumination.For a touch of whimsy, underwater lights that change colour are now on the market.
