Choosing Water Line Pool Tile to Boost Your Backyard


If you've always dreamed of a one-of-a kind backyard oasis, complete with drink in hand at the pool side, the waterline pool tile you choose can provide a stunning focal point.
We have a wide range of beautiful tile options to help you get in the poolside mood. As you picture cloudless blue skies, imagine warm breezes, and the taste of your favorite frozen concoction, here are some inspirational tile ideas to complete the scene.

Go for Glass Mosaic

Glass tiles add an air of luxury to any pool design and can help give your backyard a resort-like feel. Smaller, sparkling mosaics have become an increasingly popular choice for pool liners. The clarity of glass captures and reflects natural light, offering an iridescent quality that enhances the beauty of your pool.

Due to their popularity and high demand, there are now a great amount of glass mosaics available that can be used as pool water line tile. 


Aim for a Natural Look

If you prefer a more natural pool design, consider using a stone-look porcelain tile on the waterline of your pool. The organic, earthy color tones add subtle visual texture to your pool liner and can also be used to blend in with your deck.

In particular, mosaics or decorative accents provide natural beauty to your pool area, plus all the benefits of long-lasting porcelain tile.


Show off Your Contemporary Style

If you'd like your pool design to mesh well with your contemporary home, choose a material that's edgy and unexpected for your pool lining. For instance, the EC1 line offers a modern, linear mosaic tile that's available in sleek colors and will elevate the look of any contemporary pool design.

This durable porcelain option is well-suited for pools and other exterior applications.

Brighten the Space with Color

Many pool tiles tend to be a shade of blue, which evokes a calm, clear sense of the ocean. However, if you want to go in a different direction and expand your color scheme, it's now easier than ever to select a tile liner in a color that will brighten your summer days and nights. Ceramic Color Wheel series tiles offer an extensive color palette, from subdued neutrals to bright, bold hues. This line will immediately add character and a pop of color to your backyard.
When choosing pool tile, give careful consideration to this small but important element in your overall design. A quality liner will add sparkle to the water and enhance your backyard atmosphere.
