The walls and floor of your pool are the easiest and most visible areas to add value with decorative swimming pool tiles. There are hundreds of options to choose from and each speaks to a slightly different design aesthetic.

At Pool Pros, we recommend 6×6 tile for most pool users. You won’t be disappointed with the selection of colors and patterns available to you in that range. However, there are other size options available.

Penny tiles are a throwback to some retro designs, but they are surprisingly modern when done in unexpected colors. A pool deck with a mod 60’s vibe, tropical Hawaiian look, or even a sophisticated European style would all be a good match for penny tile.

Glass tile, while a bit more expensive, is unsurpassed on looks. Choosing a solid color glass tile can make a dramatic statement. Glass tile is also available in mosaics, which can give a very customized look. These tiles look fabulous in sunlight and give a glossy appearance.

Patterned or decorative tiles can also be used in a repeating sequence to add flair to the waterline of your pool. It’s a good place to experiment with color, if you are otherwise cautious. If you have mostly earth tones and natural colors throughout your deck, you will want to maintain the integrity of that look. Opt for stone and slate looks, which have less glitz and more down-to-earth tones.

12 Ways to Revitalize Your Outdoor Living AreaIf you want to stay natural, but like the look of the smaller penny tiles, then you might want to explore pebble tile options. They are similar in size to penny tiles, but are irregularly shaped and laid in a pattern. Pebble tiles come in a variety of earth tones and can be a good complement to a traditional look.

If you have no idea what tile or colors to use in your pool area, don’t panic. Our staff at Pool Pros can help explain your options for pool tile and more. For more ways to revitalize your outdoor living area, download a free copy of our eBook. →
