Are you excited that the weather is warming? Are you already planning summer parties? If you’re like many Charlotte residents, you’re looking for ways to spruce up your outdoor space. While most people think of the patio and yard, we also recommend professional pool lighting, which can add ambiance and safety for night swimmers and enhance your beautiful space. 

Safety First

As a kid, playing in the pool in the heat of the day is fun, but it’s also fun to play in the pool at night, jumping out, wrapping yourself in a towel, and then jumping back in on a dare. That creates memories, and we want that for your pool parties. We also want everyone to be safe. 

Pool safety, especially for night swimming, means having more than the factory lighting. While one light is good, more lights in and around the pool area are better and safer. They make seeing people and pets easier and can prevent accidents. 


Lighting creates a feeling for a space that cannot be done with furniture and decor alone. Regarding the outside, pool lighting creates an ambiance for swimmers and non-swimmers to enjoy. A well-lit pool is relaxing, safe, and welcoming whether you’re enjoying dinner poolside or a sunset dip. Turn up the music, turn on the lights, and sit back for an amazing experience. 


When you choose LED lights, you can change the colors for the seasons. For example, red, white, and blue for the Fourth of July, red and green for Christmas, and blue for Charlotte FC can be in the rotation. Kids can choose their favorite color for their birthday party. You get the idea. Include the pool lights in the party plan and wow your guests!

Not only are LED lights fun, but they are also energy efficient. 

Added Value

When the pool lights are upgraded, you and your guests will enjoy the outdoor space more. When it’s time to sell the property, the outdoor lighting adds value for buyers. They won’t have to think about how to use the space because you’ve already shown them. It’s a great investment for enjoyment and property value. 

Types of Pool Lighting

Palmetto Outdoor Lighting recommends the following options for pool lighting to enhance the look and feel and provide safety to your summer party space. 

  • LED Lights: Energy efficient and low maintenance. Available in a variety of colors to create and highlight stunning features. 
  • Fiber Optic Lighting: Brighter and sharper than LED and can be used to create drama. They’re also energy efficient and low maintenance. 
  • Halogen Lighting: Older technology but still widely popular and relatively inexpensive.
  • Underwater Lighting and Spotlights: Used to create unique designs, easy to install. Spotlights highlight specific features like a waterfall, walkway, or plants. 

Whether you’re seeking to light poolside walkways, highlight water features, or have more pool lighting for safety, Palmetto Outdoor Lighting is here to support you. Our goal is to provide you with the lighting that makes your yard and pool your oasis for summer parties, and throughout the year. We look forward to working with you.
