12 Pool Lighting Ideas to Brighten Up Your Outdoor Space

By Kat Hodgins | November 1, 2022

Swimming pools may conjure images of fun in the sun, but they aren’t exclusively used during the daytime. Many pool owners also enjoy taking nighttime swims, throwing late-night pool parties, or treating the pool area as an aesthetic outdoor space. Pool lighting expands your pool enjoyment opportunities, even after the sun goes down.

Adding poolside lighting grants greater pool area visibility, a must-have for homes with kids, pets, or accident-prone individuals. Additionally, the right lights around a pool make a space more inviting, more festive, and can show off your favorite home features at night. These pool lighting ideas can help you transform your poolside into a more practical and aesthetically pleasing space.

Underwater Lights

Outside pool lights can go on or around the water, as well as in the water. Installing LED lights below the pool surface helps illuminate the hue of the liner, giving water a soft blue glow. Nighttime swimmers will also likely feel more comfortable diving underwater when they can see where they’re going.

Of course, given the location of these outside pool lights, they are best installed during new pool construction or while renovating an existing one.


2. String Lights

String lights are simple, fast to set up, and a type of pool deck lighting that adds some easygoing charm to an outdoor area. With bulbs ranging in size from small twinkle lights to large outdoor Edison light bulbs, there are sure to be string lights to suit many tastes.

Whether strung around the perimeter of the pool or draped along a nearby fence, string lights look nice pretty much wherever you hang them—but that doesn’t mean they can go anywhere. As nice as it looks to string lights over your pool, it can be dangerous, or even lethal, if live string lights fall into a pool with a swimmer. Hang string lights thoughtfully and securely near a pool (not directly over it) to avoid any risk of them ending up in the water.

3. Colorful Floating Lights

Add some flair to your pool with a convenient underwater light that doesn’t need to be hung up or installed at all. This floating pool light available at The Home Depot is solar-powered and charges throughout the day. By night, it rotates through five different LED colors or can be set to a steady white. Even if you forget to turn the light off, these outside pool lights have automatically shut off after 2 or 5 hours—depending on whether it’s in static or color-change mode.

Charred Brussels Sprouts with Warm Honey Glaze

Total Time: 40 mins | Yields: 4 Servings
1½ lb. brussels sprouts, trimmed, halved
¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
½ tsp. kosher salt, plus more
Freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup honey
⅓ cup sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar
¾ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes (optional)
3 tbsp. unsalted butter
3 scallions, thinly sliced on a diagonal
1 tsp. finely grated lemon zest

Place a rimmed baking sheet on bottom rack of oven; preheat to 450°. Toss brussels sprouts and oil in a large bowl; season with salt and black pepper. Carefully remove baking sheet from oven. Using tongs, arrange brussels cut side down on baking sheet. Roast brussels on bottom rack until softened and deeply browned, 20–25 minutes.

Meanwhile, bring honey to a simmer in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook, stirring often, until honey is a deep amber color but not burnt (it will be foamy, that’s okay), 3–4 minutes.

Remove from heat and add vinegar and red pepper flakes, if using, and whisk until sauce is smooth (it will bubble up quite aggressively when you add the vinegar before settling). Return saucepan to medium heat, add butter and ½ tsp. salt, and cook, whisking constantly, until glaze is glossy, bubbling, and slightly thickened, 3–4 minutes. Transfer brussels sprouts to a large bowl. Add glaze and scallions and toss to combine. Transfer to a platter and top with lemon zest.
