The days of a boring, plain cement pool are long gone. Today, you can make your design choices based on appearance, finish or budget. With options such as natural stone, ceramic and glass tiles, your new pool can be as unique as your tastes. Carefully chosen tile in the pool area sets the mood, invites enjoyment, and beckons relaxation. Whether porcelain, glass, natural stone, single tile or mosaic, the nature of the tile you choose can sparkle in the sun or blend into the natural surroundings of your yard.

If you want your pool to reflect the beauty of nature, natural stone is the ideal choice. When Slate and Quartzite are exposed to water, they take on a rusty patina. Golden Gate Quartzite is one of the natural stone products we carry that does not have a high iron content and will not rust. This metamorphic stone evolved from sandstone and is classified as a sedimentary stone. Arizona Tile offers Golden Gate as a product in our tumbled program, which will include a multitude of mosaics and tile sizes that will provide a unique style to any swimming pool design.Glass Tile Mosaic Shimmer Abalone-1x4

Our Watercolors Glass Tile comes in a variety of sizes and colors and is a perfect accent to add color and shine to your pool. We offer it in four single colors such as Arbor, Night Sky, Ocean, and Wheat Field. Shimmer Glass mosaics are hand-poured, resulting in the beautiful variation seen in each color which leads to a more creative mosaic. This tile can include slight creases and bubbles, seen on the surface. The Shimmer finishes can look like Abalone or Pearl and come in jewel tones as well.

Pay careful consideration to the texture of the tile you choose. Glass tile is a great accent tile, carefully placed away from walking areas so as not to cause slipping. Safety around water is just as important as choosing a tile that will withstand constant wet conditions and look good for years to come.

No matter the atmosphere you want to create or budget that you need to adhere to, a beautiful swimming pool can add to the value of your home and offer an outdoor oasis for your family to enjoy.
