When you work with a pool and spa designer in Tucson, you will have many design and material choices to make during the design process. While swimming pool tiles won’t make your water feel any cooler during the summer months, they can make all the difference when it comes to the overall look and feel of your custom swimming pool. And because there are so many choices when it comes to swimming pool tiles and decking, the design possibilities are endless. Before you tell your pool designer what tiles or deck you want, here are some tips for choosing your swimming pool tiles and decking surfaces.
Because the design possibilities are endless, take plenty of time to look at magazines and online galleries for inspiration. Your Tucson pool design company should also have a gallery of past work and samples in their showroom that can be used as inspiration for your swimming pool deck and tile design. Keep an inspiration notebook or computer folder and save pictures of pools deck and tile designs that you would want to use in and around your new custom pool.
Consider Safety and Maintenance
Swimming pool tiles add beauty, elegance, and charm to your outdoor living area, but they are also important maintenance features. Choose waterline tiles for around the pool that are easy to clean and frost resistant. Mosaic tiles can be added or customized for a bit of whimsy and fun on the steps, walls or floor of the pool. The area around your swimming pool will often be wet, so be sure to select a deck surface that will be slip resistant to prevent accidents. You should also consider that some decks are cooler than others or require more maintenance, so find out how to choose, clean and treat each type of deck surface before giving your pool designer the final verdict.
