Homeowners have more options than ever when it comes to choosing tile for a new pool. Gorgeous material and color choices can give the pool a finished look and complement your entire outdoor space.
Of course, pools are a lot of maintenance, so you’ll want to pick a material that not only looks good but is comfortable to care for. Here are the three most popular design options for pools, and why we love them!
Although glass is the most expensive type of pool tile, it’s also the most popular because of its versatility. It also lasts much longer than the 5 to 10-year lifespan of other types of pool tile. Glass can be molded into different shapes to create smooth or abstract effects that mimic the movement of water.
Many homeowners choose to mix glass with another material to generate interest while saving money. Glass tile is durable and non-porous, making it comfortable to care for and clean. Check out these pool cleaning tips that’ll keep your glass tile pool shimmering. Small-form mosaic glass tile provides a sparkling finish and luster, creating a look that wouldn’t be out of place in a high-end art installation.
Many customers like the natural texture of large-format stone tile. This material can be used to cover a patio or deck and continued into the pool area for a harmonious appearance. Outdoor spaces with an attractive Mediterranean feel work well with stone tile.
What’s more, this option can be affordably used in large areas, stays warm after a day in the sun, and prevents slippage. Fans of stone can choose from a wide variety of natural materials with different colors and textures. Popular options include sandstone, limestone, cobblestone, and semi-polished granite.
Ceramic and Porcelain Tile
Ceramic is the most affordable pool tiling option, used for decades. Ceramic and porcelain come with a variety of choices, like mosaics and hand-painted tiles, that can change the aesthetic of your pool area. Textured porcelain provides a natural look that mimics stone while glazed porcelain offers a bold, glossy finish in any color you choose. Follow these tips to keep your pool water as beautiful as your new tile.
Homeowners are not limited to one specific material when it comes to designing a pool tile scheme. For best results, work with a designer to create balanced color, texture, size, and details for an aesthetically pleasing look that makes your pool a breathtaking addition to your landscape.
