Nestled in the picturesque Cold Coast, Queensland lies a dreamy retreat known as The Lodge. Recently, this idyllic sanctuary embarked on a renovation journey, particularly focusing on rejuvenating its backyard swimming pool. What sparked this transformation? The answer lies in the mesmerizing Pool Tiles. Witnessing the evolution of this pool from its initial state to its stunning reimagined form through before, during, and after photos paint an impressive picture of the considerable improvements made.


#1 The Pool: A Transformation in Progress

During the initial phase of the renovation project, the pool presented itself as a small and neglected pond, devoid of any charm or appeal. The periphery of the pool was lined with unattractive red concrete blocks, further contributing to its uninspiring appearance. Inside, the concrete interior was lackluster, devoid of any visual interest or aesthetic beauty. The overall ambiance of the pool area failed to captivate and felt distinctly outdated. It was clear that a significant transformation was needed to rejuvenate this space and bring it up to par with the stunning environment of The Lodge.

#2 A Contemporary Revival

To bring about a truly remarkable change, an extraordinary transformation was undertaken to revitalize the pool. The worn-out and lackluster mosaic tiles were carefully removed and replaced with the magnificent and contemporary Triangle Tile Series - the enchanting Santorini Blossom TR-SA-BL. These exceptional tiles showcased a captivating artistic pattern that seamlessly blended intricate triangular shapes with vibrant blue floral tones. The glossy surface and flawless edges of the tiles imbued the water with a mesmerizing sparkle, instantly turning the pool into a captivating oasis of visual delight.

In addition to the remarkable tile upgrade, the pool refurbishment project also encompassed several other key enhancements. The previous unappealing red bricks that lined the periphery were expertly replaced with a sleek and sophisticated concrete floor. This sleek flooring not only provided a modern and minimalist touch but also served to enhance the overall aesthetic appeal of the pool area. Furthermore, concrete steps were skillfully constructed, adding a touch of elegance and ease of access for swimmers.

To further elevate the pool's appearance and functionality, the rusty and outdated fence was replaced with carefully selected natural texture rock blocks. These stylish and durable blocks served a dual purpose. On one hand, they added a touch of rustic charm and natural beauty to the area, seamlessly blending with the surrounding landscape. On the other hand, they provided a sturdy and secure barrier, ensuring the safety of pool users.

The comprehensive renovation efforts undertaken during this phase brought about a remarkable and transformative change to the pool. From its previously lackluster and uninspiring state, it emerged as a stunning retreat, exuding an inviting and refreshing ambiance that perfectly complemented the natural splendor of The Lodge. It became a rejuvenating haven where guests could relax, unwind, and bask in the sheer beauty and tranquility of their surroundings.

#3 Infusing Natural Vibes

This remarkable renovation project brought about a complete metamorphosis, completely transforming the once lackluster and uninviting pool area into a radiant and captivating space that is now adored and embraced by everyone at The Lodge. The introduction of the geometric patterned mosaic tiles played a pivotal role in breathing new life into the existing pool, instantly elevating its overall appeal and creating a visual spectacle that mesmerizes all who lay their eyes on it.

These premium mosaic tiles were thoughtfully placed along the pool ladders, lending an aura of elegance and sophistication while adding an element of delightful entertainment to the pool area. With their intricate patterns and exquisite craftsmanship, they effortlessly merge seamlessly with the surroundings, creating a harmonious blend of beauty and functionality. The timeless charm exuded by these mosaic tiles not only enhances the aesthetics of the pool but also serves as a subtle reminder of the rich history and traditional craftsmanship associated with The Lodge.

Adjacent to the pool, a meticulously designed pergola awaits, providing a tranquil and inviting spot for guests to unwind and bask in the enchanting ambiance of balmy summer nights. Constructed with meticulous attention to detail, this pergola offers respite from the sun and transforms an ordinary poolside experience into a luxurious retreat. Adorned with foliage and twinkling lights, it exudes a sense of tranquility and serves as a gathering place for intimate conversations and memorable moments under the starry night sky.

Adding to the allure of the pool area, the classic blue mosaic tiles were chosen not just for their visual appeal but also for their ability to impart a refreshing sense of coolness during the scorching summer days. The cool hues of blue reflect and refract the sun's rays, creating an illusion of crystal-clear waters and an oasis-like atmosphere. Combined with the gentle sound of splashing water and the gentle breeze rustling through the nearby palm trees, the pool area becomes an idyllic haven, perfectly suited for relaxation, rejuvenation, and unforgettable memories.

#4 From Pond to Paradise

The backyard of The Lodge has undergone a remarkable transformation, turning it from a dull and uninspiring space into a vibrant sanctuary that exudes a delightful holiday atmosphere. The addition of concrete walls, cleverly shaped to resemble hedges, serves the dual purpose of providing privacy and enhancing the overall aesthetic appeal of the space.

This meticulously maintained greenery, thoughtfully integrated throughout the backyard, creates a striking contrast against the backdrop of the gray concrete stairs. The lush green plants inject a much-needed burst of vitality into the surroundings, elevating the entire ambiance to new heights.

The careful attention to detail in the selection and placement of the greenery is evident, as it not only adds visual interest but also creates a sense of tranquility and serenity within the space. The vibrant hues and diverse textures of the foliage further contribute to the overall charm and allure of the sanctuary-like setting.

As guests traverse the concrete stairs, they are greeted by the refreshing sight of the verdant greenery, which effortlessly captures their attention and invites them to explore further. The combination of the privacy provided by the concrete walls and the captivating presence of the carefully maintained greenery creates an immersive experience that transports visitors into a world of relaxation and rejuvenation.

Incorporating lush greenery alongside the concrete stairs was a brilliant decision. It adds visual appeal and injects vibrancy into the space. The green plants and cascading vines create a natural frame that blends with the blue pool water, evoking an enchanting oasis-like atmosphere.

To enhance the effect, cheerful splashes of sunny yellow and jocund ginger accents are strategically placed throughout the landscape. These vibrant accents create a playful energy and dynamic visual composition that complements the calming blues and greens

Besides the visual appeal, the greenery also creates a refreshing microclimate, providing shade and shelter while fostering a sense of tranquility and connection with nature. Guests are greeted by the invigorating scent of flowers and rustling leaves, enhancing their sensory experience.

Overall, the integration of greenery alongside the concrete stairs, along with bursts of yellow and ginger accents, transforms the backyard into a captivating oasis. It delights guests with an impression of joy, serenity, and the power of nature's touch.

#6 Night Time Serenity

Soft exterior lighting illuminates the pool and its surroundings, accentuating its beauty, particularly the Santorini Triangle Blossom Swimming Pool Mosaic, which sparkles like a sapphire in The Lodge's delightful landscape. An elegant awning bridges the indoor-outdoor gap, offering a seamless transition between spaces. Imagine reclining in a minimalist white lounge chair, lulled by the serene sounds of nature and enveloped in soothing music under the starry sky.

The transformation progress was showcased on The Lodge's Instagram, where the owner expressed immense satisfaction with our premium pool tiles.
