As the weather heats up in South Florida, many of us seek refuge in our pools. For those remodeling a home for resale a pool really increases the value on a dry lot and there are many new trends in pools around the world that are making a splash. Here are some of the trends from around the world that are notable and worth a look. If you are looking for a home with a pool, or a waterfront home, please contact me today!

Pool as a focal point: A very popular trend in outdoor living is the pool as the focal point around which are various couches and cabanas. This creates an outdoor living room so to speak and is fantastic for entertaining.

The Indoor Pool: The Indoor Pool is making a come back for a number of reasons. First, it is easier to maintain in the long run considering it is not exposed to the elements, and second there are very chic indoor pool furnishings that can meld the indoor space with a seeming outdoor space.

Over the top Movie Pool: This is rarely done, however for the fortunate few there are outdoor screens that are designed specifically for viewing from the pool. An excellent party idea is to have friends over for a bite and a floating viewing party.

Infinity with a Twist: One type of pool extends the infinity edge to the vantage point of the water in front of it. An unusual shape with it culminating at an infinity pool that blends with the water creates a stunning effect.

Many of my Fort Lauderdale condominiums on the market are in the original condition and this week, I would like to offer some ideas for easy renovations that make a big difference. Painting a room is one of the easiest ways to completely change the look and feel of a space. While it may sound as simple as some swatches on the wall, there are actually a number of new technologies that make painting a space yourself much simpler than in the past. Increasing curb appeal can be a snap with some of the newest advancements in home painting.
One of the most popular new paints is Latex paint. Demand for latex paint has increased due to its’ durability, ease of cleaning, and its application is quite easy. Another type of paint that is new is called Elite and it made of ceramic microspheres that are formulated to protect finish and colour, keeping your color bright over time and with sun exposure, which is frequent in Fort Lauderdale waterfront condominiums. Another interesting technology is called Magic Paint which goes on pink and the tint is designed to show you exactly where you painted to get even coats as it dries. Lastly, and perhaps the most obvious advancement is the Dutch Boy easy pour spout twist off lid can designs. Many of my renovated listings have concrete and suede accented walls, which also gives a modern look. Each of these makes painting a space a breeze, and updated walls change the look and feel of your condomini
