Different Types of Swimming Pool Tile

The swimming pool tile is an essential part of any swimming pool design. But with all the different types of swimming pool tile options on the market it’s difficult to decide on the best option for your pool. A beautiful addition to the décor that makes the water look cleaner and clearer is a must as well as maximum durability for the swimming pool tiles.

As a result, it’s critical to choose the right size and shape of pool tile to achieve a stunning aesthetic combined with the right material that is suitable for your weather.

These tiles have different pros and cons, so it’s essential to understand which one is best for your needs.  

Ceramic tile

Ideal for pools with a natural look and feel. Ceramic tile is made from clay, powder, and water. They’re usually hard and have a shiny surface. Ceramic, along with Porcelain, is the most popular choice for pool tile. The natural colors and textures make them a favorite among pool owners.  

Ceramic tiles are an easy option because they’re simple to clean and maintain. Ceramic tiles are also heat resistant. As a result, they’re an excellent choice for use along the waterline and on the pool deck.  

Many homeowners choose low-cost ceramic tiles for their pools, but this can be a risk. For example, ceramic tiles are more likely to crack in cold weather, which means owners need to replace tiles frequently.

Porcelain tile

Is long-lasting. It’s also frost-resistant, which makes it ideal for outdoor use. In addition, because it’s denser than ceramic, Porcelain is resistant to wear and tear from continuous use.   

Swimming pools require a lot of maintenance. Porcelain tiles have a smoother surface, making them easier to clean.  

Porcelain tiles are perfect for creating affordable waterline accents that can complement any swimming pool.
