The first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “summer” is swimming. People just can’t shake off that imagery of basking in the sunshine as they have fun in their own pools. But if you live in Arizona, it’s a different story. Summer in Arizona can be harsh, and nothing kills off the excitement more than the thought of getting sunburned. If you want to swim more and burn less, installing pool shades may be your best option. Here’s a quick list of the best pool shade ideas for the summer.
Cover your Pool with Motorized Awnings
Motorized awnings are a practical solution if you want to add some shade to your pool right away. What’s great about them is that they can be automatically extended if you need them and retracted when you don’t.
Use motorized awnings with sun sensors like Somfy and you won’t even have to extend or retract them yourself. When picking awnings, make sure the fabric is water repellent and mildew resistant so you can splash about the pool to your heart’s content.
Install Sail Shades over the Pool
If you’re going for a more naval look, sail shades are just what you need. They’re made from high quality, durable shade fabric that can be a colorful addition to your backyard. Although sail shades are permanent structures and are more popular with commercial spaces, they provide great coverage over the pool, so you don’t have to worry about limited swimming space.
Use Patio Shades to Expand Outdoor Seating
When taking a break from swimming, you don’t want to leave yourself and your family exposed to the sun. Patio shades a perfect shield against UV rays that may harm your skin. It also expands your entertainment space so that you don’t have to walk inside your house dripping wet from swimming.
