Essential Pool Accessories for the Modern Home

If you have always dreamed of having a pool in your garden, or would like to revamp the existing one, there are some important additions to consider, such as seating, fencing, and of course, lighting. Flooring would typically be timber decking or natural stone pavers and the fencing needs to be secure, safe, and ideally, have a high level of visibility.

Glass Pool Fencing

Popular for many reasons, glass pool fencing is the best material for securing the pool area. Glass is not affected by water and is very easy to clean, and perhaps the biggest advantage to using glass, is the ability to monitor the pool area from any location. Even with a secure fence and gate, it is still possible for a neighbour’s pet to gain access, and without glass fencing, you would never know.

Customised Solutions

At Jigsaw, we pride ourselves in the ability to come up with bespoke designs that provide the ideal screening and fencing for our customers. If you are a DIY enthusiast, we can design and supply the ready to install glass panels, as well as the necessary fixtures and fittings, or if you would rather we complete the installation, we are happy to do so.

Necessary Hardware

There are certain parts that you will need when installing glass pool fencing, which might include:

  • Hinges and Latches
  • Handrail Brackets
  • Fasteners
  • Fixing Adhesive
  • Posts
  • Railings  and Connectors

Jigsaw supply everything you will need to complete the job and our design team loves the challenge of creating pool fencing solutions in a range of environments. We are committed to excellence and many of our customers are happy to testify that we always go the extra mile to ensure satisfaction, so if you are looking at pool fencing options, contact us today and we will be happy to advise on all aspects of pool fencing. Towel racks should be evident and perhaps a changing area with a toilet and shower would be ideal. Non slip mats might be needed, and safety is always an issue in any pool area, so bear this in mind when making any design or material choices.

The Right Furniture

Ideally, your pool furniture should be waterproof, and before setting out to the store, consider exactly what you plan to do in the pool area. You may want an area that is not close to the water, and there should be a few plastic chairs for parents who wish to be near their children. Small, foldable stools will work just as well, and whenever you have guests, they can be used for waterside seating. Comfort is also an issue, as some people like to soak up the sun on a comfortable lounger, and you might like a dining area, with perhaps cane furniture or rattan, which is ideal for outside environments.

Glass is a very versatile material and it is being used more and more for fencing and screening within the home. Glass balustrades really add a touch of elegance to any home, and pool areas greatly benefit from glass fencing, which allows a high level of visibility.
