#1 Shining in the Sun

Shiny glass or matte glass? Vibrant colors or soft neutrals? Eccentric mosaics or elegant monochrome? There are many different factors you need to consider when picking the right glass pool tile, but the three most important ones are safety, durability, and attractiveness. Just like our welcomed iridescent glass tile - it provides a luxurious, visually appealing style to your pool and will increase the resale value of your home.

#3 Crystal Glaze Porcelain

Choosing the right tile for your swimming pool also depends on your overall budget. If you are planning on tiling a larger pool for example, then going for more affordable options such as ceramic pool tiles, might sound like a better option. Our Crystal Glaze Collection might suit your lower budget!

#5 Large Size!

Size matters when it comes to choosing pool tiles. Larger tiles can cover up more space and make your pool look larger. Choosing the right pool tile size will make a big difference in your swimming pool. Like our 150X150 Ice Crackle Pool Tiles will make the pool more inviting and vibrant. If you are after a luxury look go for white mosaic tiles that make the pool appear larger and the water look sky blue. Blue is another popular choice and dark blue tiles will turn the water a deep ocean color.

#7 Special Finish?

We all love these finished designs! While touching these surfaces, you will get a special uneven touch feeling. Moreover, when you look at this tile under the sun, it will look like real water flowing through the finish. This pool tile is our hot sale this season. Because it’s strong, affordable, and comes in every color, texture, and design you can imagine, which is why it has grown to be so popular over the years. If you are trying to stay within a budget, ceramic tiles are a great option. However, they do not reflect light as much as iridescent glass pool tiles.

#10 Don’t Forget Pool Accessories Tile!

A beautifully colored, glossy pool tile might be attractive but don’t forget safety comes first. Opting for anti-slip pool accessories tiles around the pool is the best choice to ensure your family, friends or clients can enjoy the swimming pool without worrying about accidents.

#11 Poolside Floor

The anti-slip poolside floor design is necessary! A successful outdoor design should flow as a natural extension of the interior footprint. Matte-thickness porcelain floor tile versatility allows you to use the same or similar tile inside and out so that your surface choices create continuity in your design.

Just like our Outdoor Tile Collection, they are water-resistant, scratch-resistant, stain-resistant, and fade-resistant. And they are perfect for handling weather conditions. Each subset is produced slightly differently and may consequently have additional advantages that lend themselves to specific applications.
