How to Choose Your Pool Tile, Scotch Plains, New Jersey

At the end of a long day, nothing sounds quite as sweet as relaxing in your own backyard pool. Whether you’re installing a new pool or remodeling the area altogether, your pool tile can add an important level of style and distinction to your yard. The experts at Gutierrez Pool Plastering, servicing the Short Hills, NJ, area, explain how to select the best material.

Important Pool Tile Considerations

The aesthetics of your tile matter just as much as their overall function. You should choose a material that is durable, dense, and has low water absorption. For this reason, glass and ceramic pool tiles are common choices. Long-lasting ceramic bonds well to pool shells, and it is generally cheaper to lay than other products, making it an ideal choice for homeowners on a tight budget.

Small-format glass tiles can completely cover curved pool surfaces, creating dramatic, eye-catching designs. However, it’s important to remember that glass is the most expensive type of pool tile. If you’re worried about going over budget, work with your tiler to alternate glass with another tile or finish to build your desired design.

How to Choose Your Color

Your tile will impact the final color of your water. Minimalistic blue or white tiles are popular choices because they allow the water to look as bright and blue as possible, but a range of colors are also available, depending on what effect you want to achieve.

For instance, when you fully line your pool with charcoal or navy tiles, the water will look darker and more dramatic. This style pairs well with a modern backyard that features similarly dark tiling and accent colors. If you’re not sure what color works for you, speak with a tiler who can recommend different styles and materials.

At the end of the day, your pool should make you happy, and a professional can help you pick pool tiles that suit your needs. That’s why homeowners in the Plainfield and Short Hills, NJ, area turn to Gutierrez Pool Plastering for their renovation, decorating, and plastering needs.
