Vinyl Pool Liner

Vinyl pool liner is a budget-friendly option that can reduce your cost of waterline decor replacement. Border tiles made of ceramic/porcelain/glass/mosaic and vinyl pool liner are the two main alternatives of waterline resurfacing. Border tile would better settle before construction, while vinyl pool liner is changeably convenient, just rip off the part you want to replace, wipe it up with dry cloth and post on the vinyl pool liner. A considerate benefit of pool liners is their great variety of design options in pattern and color. It is a cheap decor used to cover stains and dirty spots on the pool wall.

A pale beige or grey image comes to my mind when I picture a classic swimming pool. Pool with plaster surface is a style of everything-plainly-arranged, which can add beauty of simplicity to your home. Plaster surface usually has slip-resistant texture. It is a good choice if you are wondering which material is best for the safety of kids and elders.

Aggregate Finish

Aggregate finish is one of the popular design trends in 2017. A mixture of natural glossy pebbles or ceramic-coated sand is blended into the plaster to create a primitive look. It has become richer in material, texture and color these years. For example, a new arrival of BluwhaleTile called the Free Series has launched out to multiply your selections. It is a pool tile that has pebble-shape glass mosaic chips spreading over. It is durable after grouted and can create a beach-like scenery.
