A blend of both worlds
One of the first things that pops into your mind when you think of a swimming pool is its colour, and we all have our own perception of which water colour is inviting. For some it is a deep Ocean Blue, for others a soft aqua. Sometimes architectural considerations influence water colour and black tiles are used for a dramatic effect. With The Pool Tile Company’s extensive selection of ceramic and glass mosaics, you can easily choose a tile to provide the water colour and feeling you desire.
While many pool linings tend to be rough on the surface, mosaics have a luxurious smooth finish, making them gentle on the skin and bathers. For families with children, this is an especially positive attribute and makes them one of the safest options available. Fully tiled pools also offer the lowest maintenance and capitalise on your property’s resale value.
All ceramic and glass mosaics supplied by the Pool Tile Company are provided on mesh and are appropriate for pools with salt, chlorine, ozone or ionizers. The featured pool was constructed by Thomas Pools in Brisbane and is fully tiled in 25mm ceramic mosaics. The Bering Sea mosaics blend together a range of blues and greys for an overall deep ocean hue.
There is a definite trend towards mosaic blends at the moment as they provide visual interest when viewed up close. Some pool owners are concerned about the amount of grout with smaller tiles. However, if you think of a check shirt, the smaller the checks, the more you notice the overall colour and this is the case with tiles. The grout also provides extra grip underfoot.
Ceramic and glass mosaic tiles offer almost unlimited colour choices and when coupled with their silky smoothness and unbeatable durability, they are an excellent choice for lining your swimming pool.
