Many contractors love using glass mosaic tiles to decorate pool border. They are experienced and will give house owners professional insights to find their favorite and the most suitable waterline tiles for new-built swimming pool or remodeling projects. Some of them even offer advanced technology to design tailor-made mosaic border for every unique pool construction. One reason why glass mosaic tiles are great for pool design is the vanishing edge. Swimming pool normally leaves one side without covering coping. It is flat or below the horizon. With transparent glass mosaic tiles installed, pool water flows over the side and reflow back, it gives an illusion water just vanishes over the edge. Another reason is the nature of glass. This material has an overwhelming capacity in making pool-use mosaic tiles, for they yield to the high demand for corrosion-resistant quality.

Some pool owners love decorate the pool with shinning glass mosaic tiles all around. The tiles reflect light and the color is gradually varied from dark to light and become the similar color when it ends with pool deck. Some just use glass mosaic tiles as small part of the pool for emphasis. For example, people like having alcohol drinks would love to upgrade the pool with a swim-up bar counter. To highlight this design, they often choose to tile it with shimmering effect in the light. They enjoy sitting around the bar with their family and friends while chatting little daily issues if feel tired of swimming and want some rest.  

The colorful and reflective glass pool tile also work well to avoid the unexpected accidents when people entering into the pool. If the pool is plainly decorated blue all around, it is hard to make out the depth between the entrance and the interior so people would be likely to hit the wall or sprain ankle. This can truly be an accident if you jump in and do not notice there is a protruding edge. The solution to this is to tile a border or make a colorful paving along the pool edge and the middle of the pool bottom. Just remember glass mosaic tiles have a lot of benefits and do a great impact in the issue of pool design and safety. Be thoughtful before you are planning a new pool or remodeling project.
