Remember Your Budget

Before you start looking at different types of tiles, it’s important to go in with a budget. It can easy to get distracted with different styles and colors so if you establish how much you’re willing to spend beforehand then you’ll be more satisfied with your choice.


For the tiles outside the pool, it’s important to choose something that will keep you, your family, and your guests safe. Remember that the poolside will almost constantly be wet so choose tiles that are slip resistant before you start looking at colors and designs.


Pool builders know more than anyone how expensive pool tiles can be, especially if you have to keep making repairs. Look for tiles that have a lifetime guarantee against damage and even against the color fading out. This is especially true for tiles inside the pool.


There are a wide variety of different styles. Some are decorative, some ore more simple. This one depends on your personal taste and your current landscaping. Remember that you don’t alway sneed decorative for your pool to look decorative. You can also mix a variety of different colors of plain tiles.


Blue and white are popular colors for pools and spas. That’s because they reflect the light and make the pool look more inviting. Their also good colors for deeper pools since water can distort the color anyways. If your undecided, our pool builders and landscapers can give you some pointers.
