With fall almost here, it might seem odd to start talking about pool tile options; however, now is actually one of the better times to start thinking about retiling a pool. Demand is going to be down and you likely won't be using your pool as often as you would during the more sweltering months. Getting renovations done now can minimize disruption and ensures you can enjoy the new tile right from the get-go next year. Here are some trending ideas to consider for your poolside improvements.
Squares, triangles, rectangles, circles, diamonds, even rhombuses—geometric shapes offer sleek, clean lines and are making quite the comeback. Although geometrics are trending most in pool shapes, they also have a good role in pool tile as well. Do you remember playing with blocks as a kid and making larger designs or patterns out of them? The same premise can apply to pool tile. Select use of geometric tiles on the floor of your pool, for instance, can create logos or images for an extra dash of personalization and visual entertainment.
Glass is a stunningly beautiful tile with crisp, clear colours and a unique sheen that can't be found elsewhere. Once you add glass tile to a pool interior and see light dance off its surface amidst the ripples of water, you will be treated to an ethereal show of one-of-a-kind beauty. With dazzling colours and infinite patterns to choose from, glass lets you fully unleash your creative side for bold, personal statements.
Moving from the pool itself to the pool deck, many homeowners take advantage of natural stone tile. This is primarily due to how natural stone comes in a number of different shapes, sizes, and colours, allowing easy customization to any sized deck or aesthetic desire. They also work well with other natural decorative elements that you may wish to have included, like rocks or waterfalls. You don't necessarily need to use real stone, either. Stone-look porcelain tile is extremely popular for giving realistic stone appearances and texture while technically sound, providing durability and functionality.
Ceramic and Porcelain Tiles
In addition to the above-mentioned stone-look tile, ceramic and porcelain can be used for other types of poolside or pool interior tiling. Ceramic and porcelain are extremely durable and are one of the most cost-effective tile options on the market. Whether you want something smooth, textured, natural coloured, bright and dynamic, large or small, there is a ceramic or porcelain tile that can meet your needs.
