When you add a hot tub or pool to your property, you always want to keep adjusting it until the environment is completely perfect. There are many different kinds of accessories you can use to help distinguish your hot tub or pool.

These can be purely decorative, highly functional or somewhere in between. No matter how much you like your hot tub or pool right now, the odds are there is a way you can improve it.

Here is a look at three great additions that you can consider adding to your hot tub or pool to make it even more amazing.

  1. Fiber Optic Lighting.

    One of the very best ways to enhance your hot tub or pool is to add lighting. Don't just go with the typical, boring spot lights that everyone has.

    Enter the world of high tech lighting with some fiber optic lights. You can install these amazing lights around the perimeter of your hot tub or pool.

    These lights change colors, and you can program them to put on a light show that will greatly enhance the mood of your night swims.

  2. Add a Waterfall.

    Though this doesn’t really add anything very functional to your pool, it does make it look a whole lot cooler and the sound it makes can be very relaxing.

    There are many different kinds of waterfalls that you can add. You can go more naturalistic with a rock waterfall. You can go more futuristic with a sheer glass waterfall.

    You can also go very artistic with fountains that spray out a waterfall. You are really only limited by your imagination and your home improvement budget when you are adding a waterfall to your pool.

    It will look great and also give you that very pleasant sound of running water that is so relaxing and therapeudic.

  3. Add a Bar.

    One of the best ways to instantly improve the atmosphere at your pool or hot tub is to add a bar.

    When you can simply wade over to the bar to fix another drink, it makes it much more enjoyable to lounge around for hours at a time. You can even add a bar that has a refrigeration unit in it to hold ice and keep drinks cold.

    Adding a bar is definitely one of the best ways to increase the wow factor of your hot tub or pool.
