Decorative tiling is the perfect way to add some visual appeal to your pool. No matter what your style, there are a number of options to choose from, including colorful mosaics, glass, porcelain, or even a combination. While many of our customers choose more traditional looks that will last a lifetime, some have gotten creative and used tiling to create dolphins and other striking outdoor scenes. The bottom line is that tiling is the perfect way to add some personal style to your pool area so let’s dive right into the possibilities.

Tiling can be used in a number of areas, including the pool floor, the steps and along the frame of the pool. There are some basic materials that work well:


Porcelain tile is easy to install and maintain over time. This style stays looking new with regular cleaning and is also softer to the touch than some other options, which is a plus for bare feet. However, porcelain can break if not treated with care.


Glass tile is perfect for the pool that sees a lot of use (and perhaps a little abuse) since it is stronger than some other materials. It is available in many colors and designs, which makes it a great option if you want to add some uniqueness to your backyard oasis. Glass tile can also provide the optical illusion of a deeper-looking pool, but it can be tediousness to install.


If you want even more color and flair, mosaic tile is the way to go. It is available in different colors, designs and even various sizes. Whether you want to create a unique design on your pool floor, stair or wall, mosaic tile is the ideal choice. Just keep in mind, if you decide to use tile on the bottom of your pool, most professionals recommend draining the water every other year in order to clean the tile of algae, dirt, mold, and/or chemicals.
