During the summer, everyone is interested in their outdoor space or the ones of the homes they are looking at buying. For buyers, a pool becomes a very enticing luxury while house shopping in the heat. But never assume that just having the pool there is enough to sell it. Some buyers might need that extra nudge, since pools do require a bit of maintenance. One way you can do that is by staging the area with some smart decor. If you can sell the lifestyle, you are one step closer to selling the home. It will help them imagine themselves relaxing out there and all the potential enjoyment they could get from having their own private oasis. Here are some tips and ideas for pool area decorating and staging.
The addition of an umbrella is simple, but calls to mind a luxury hotel or beach vacation. Potted flowers on each corner of the pool add some pops of color.
This furniture cleverly matches the architecture of the home with the wood and white accents.
Here, simplicity has a very upscale appeal. The candles between each seat are enough to add some elegance and a romantic glow.
Stacking the towels under the end table is a great touch if you are staging your home for sale to get your buyers’ imaginations rolling.
Lanterns placed along the edge of the pool will look great at night, casting a beautiful glow on the water.
You can embrace the home’s history with furniture that matches its style, like this vintage wrought iron set with pale blue cushions.
Depending on how your pool area is set up, consider having multiple conversation areas. A table with an umbrella is perfect for poolside dining, while some Adirondack chairs offer a place for sunbathing.
You don’t have to spend a fortune on furniture to get comfort and style by the pool. Here, a twin mattress with some colorful pillows make for laid back charm.
Outdoor slipcovers have a very elegant look that is also very easy to keep clean. You can pop them in the washing machine regularly for a crisp look.
Curtains provide a luxury hotel appeal to a pool area that is easy and affordable to accomplish.
When doing pool area decorating or staging, keep in mind the lifestyle you want to capture.
