includes replacing surface tile, coping and adding water features, can run about $10,000.

An excellent example of a stunning "before" and "after" is a Coral Springs pool that Van Kirk & Sons remodeled. A waterfall replaced the old spa. A sun shelf was constructed next to it, and a second waterfall was added to balance the design. A 360-degree vanishing-edge spa, which allows the water to spillover into the pool, was built on a 6-inch deep sun shelf designed to bring the water feature closer to the house. The edges of the pool were softened to create a lagoon feel. Colorful LED lighting and new plantings finished the transformation.

Some homeowners are still ordering custom new pools such as the one Van Kirk & Sons designed with striking light features on a lake in Hollywood. Cram says the home was being remodeled and the owners wanted a pool with a strong visual presence. They got their wish. The pool, with a vanishing edge on three sides, features a trough with LED lighting and fiber-optic lighting built into the glass tile.

"People who see the house from the other side of the lake will call and ask the owners to turn on the lights," Cram says.

"It is like a piece of art that is highly reflective during the day and a light show at night."

Kevin Ford of Pool Builders in Davie says he is seeing more of an interest in total outdoor packages - summer kitchens with a seating area that become an extension of the home.

One of Pool Builders' most creative installations is a pool in Davie with sunken seating and a large umbrella.

POOLIN_.......;; RESOURCES

BY CHARLYNE VARKONYI SCHAUB Forget the simple life. Outdoor living has gone uptown and upscale. Here are trends from manufacturers from the recent Casual Furniture and Accessories Market:

1. Europeans love stainless steel, and manufacturers predict we will, too. It already is becoming a niche market in the United States. Stainless steel is used in the Quattro collection from Barlow Tyrie. www.teak.com

2. Painted furniture is growing in popularity, and can last longer when painted with several coats of a glossy marine

finish. Gloster features a marine finish on

this painted furniture. www.gloster.com

3. Consumers continue to be fans of natural looks. The furniture can be constructed of manmade fibers and manmade wickers,

but they want it to appear natural. Lloyd Flanders' chaise gives natural look in allweather wicker. www.lloydflanders.com

4. Living room looks have come outside, such as large sectionals and ottomans. Motion furniture, including recliners and swivel chairs, was a strong trend last year

and is expected to continue. Throw pillows

add a custom look, including those with monograms and words such as "Escape." Gloster's Plantation Sectional brings

indoors outside. www.gloster.com

5. Another lasting trend: Canopies continue to be used on top of chairs

and outdoor beds. Laneventure's

Island Bed makes outdoor naps comfortable. www.laneventure.com

B. Manufacturers are providing more options for those with balconies and small yards. Smaller scale furniture and high-top tables to allow people to see over balcony railings are being introduced. Telescope Casual's Savona Elite collection has smaller scale. www.telescopecasual.com

7. Fire pits continue to be popular and they don't have to be built in. Several manufacturers showed portable fire pits that surround chat tables 22 inches high. AGIO's Disney Resort Collection features popular firepits. www.agio-usa.com

B. More color options are available. Neutrals still are the most popular, but brighter, bolder colors - such as red and dark purpls - are also available. Gray, slate and brown act as a counterbalance. Rock Wood Casual marries color and weather proof leather. www.rockwoodfurniture.com
