When it comes to choosing tiles for your new pool, there are many different colours, materials and styles to consider. From classic or traditional designs to something a little more distinctive, there’s a perfect option for every pool owner. Though classic tiles are always on offer, trends change as we approach each summer period as new colours and concepts hit the tile market. So, what type of tiles are pool owners seeking out as we head towards the summer of 2017?
With patterned or mosaic tiles back in vogue there’s something for every taste, budget and colour scheme for Perth renovators right now. Colourful, Moroccan inspired tiles and patterned mosaics make a bold statement. While the classic monochromatic palette of art deco may just be the perfect finishing touch for the buyer looking for a pared back yet, contrasting look. At Myaree Ceramics we have a wide range of glass and ceramic tiles on offer as well as interior designers on staff to help you discern what’s best for you and your pool.
In true resort style, many pool owners are opting to forego the usual edged waterline tiling and dive right in to the world of tiles, tiling every inch of their pool; this option both practical and stylish – both equally as important if you ask us. Functionally, a tiled pool is easier to clean and maintain compared to traditional options. On the flipside, a fully tiled or mosaiced pool adds an element of luxury all year round.
For those who aren’t drawn to colourful patterned mosaics, . Pool owners are veering away from the traditional blue and choosing taupe or egg shell , pastels, and even white to blend in with or complement the surrounding landscape. If you’re looking to think outside the box, consider a neutral patterned design to create interest without introducing colour.
What goes around comes around, and bullnosing – a finish that allows you to round out or square off a tile’s edges – is resurfacing as a tiling trend. Pool edges are now being finished with bullnosed tiles for a subtle finish. Myaree Ceramics can source various bullnosing profiles custom-made locally, using our porcelain tiles.
Once you’ve settled on the tiles around the edges and in the pool, think anti-slip for surrounding areas.
Though perhaps a more practical trend, anti-slip tiles are becoming more and more sought after as families act to secure their pool areas from wandering feet.
