If you’re looking to take your residential pool to the next level, look no further than pool tile.

The Perfect Dimensions

Typically, pool tile sizes are broken up into four distinct dimensions: 6”x6”, 3”x3”, 2”x2”, and 1”x1”. Most significantly, the 6”x6” tile size is both the most popular and cost effective. With the largest selection of styles and colors, you will certainly be able to find a style that suits your personal preferences. Plus, with the largest tile surface area option, your pool budget will stretch the furthest.

If you prefer the same quality and style of 6”x6” tiles but want a smaller option, then 3”x3” or 2”x2” pool tile is the perfect alternative.

However, for those looking for stylized mosaic tile that will add flair and texture to your residential pool, be sure to check out 1”x1” tile. Plus, as most are created from glass, these small yet mighty tiles are both easy to clean and sturdy enough to last a lifetime.

Choose Your Favorite Material

Similarly, there is also a diverse range of pool tile installation material options that fits every budget and style. Most notably, there are three primary options pool owners can choose from:

  • Porcelain/Ceramic Pool Tile: Regarded as the most cost-effective tile, porcelain and ceramic will help you stay under your pool renovation budget. Plus, as porcelain/ceramic is resistant to scratches and requires minimal cleaning, you can be assured that your tile will last for a lifetime.
  • Faux Stone Pool Tile: If you’re looking for something that is equal parts rustic and minimal, look no further than faux stone pool tile. With neutral color tones, no-fuss maintenance, and diverse textures and shape options, there’s something for everyone.
  • Glass Pool Tile: If you’re looking to take your pool aesthetics to the next level, glass is your answer. With a glazed pool tile aesthetic and polished finish, unlimited color options, and luxurious aesthetic, you’ll have the best pool in the neighborhood. Plus, unlike other options, algae and mildew don’t stand a chance. Remember, though: unlike the cost savings found in faux stone and porcelain/ceramic, glass pool tile is by far the most expensive.

More Than Aesthetics

Whatever your personal style, pool tile provides more than just color and aesthetics. In fact, pool tile helps protect and maintain your pool’s finish. Most notably, it prevents stains and protects against unnecessary mineral buildup at your pool’s water line.
