What Pool Tiles Can Do For Your Pool

Adding a pool to your backyard helps give your home the ultimate “wow factor.” At Pools by Design, we strive to make sure your pool matches your vision. We know how to transform your backyard into your own vacation destination.

Even a seemingly simple detail such as the type of pool tile you use can make a huge difference. Certain colors and materials can make your pool look as blue as the Caribbean ocean. Other colors can capture and highlight the Arizona sunset. By using different colors and textures you can achieve a design that will reflect your unique personality while enhancing the architectural style of your home.

Types of Pool Tiles

There are many different options of pool tiles to choose from. Choosing the right type is essential to make sure your pool looks exactly the way you want it.

Some of your options include: 

Glass Tile

Glass tile is the best choice to give your pool a luxurious look. The shiny reflection will illuminate the water and turn your pool into the color of the tile you choose. Picking a simple blue will reflect throughout the water and create the perfect contrast with Arizona’s desert. This helps your pool stand out. The glass will also capture the water’s movements when the sunlight shines on it.

Stone Tile

Stone tile matches the tones of the mountains and desert surrounding your home. This type of pool tile is best suited to homeowners who want their pool and backyard to match the natural feel of the Sonoran desert. Stone can also be used to build up pillars along the edge of your pool to evoke a more rustic feeling.

Porcelain Stone

Using porcelain stone to outline your pool is a common feature in the Arizona deserts. The strength of the stone makes it easy to be submerged into the water without the worry of constant upkeep. Porcelain tiles come with many different designs painted on them. This makes your pool extremely customizable as you can choose the tile design that you like best.
