What are the best pool tile materials?
Glass vs. Porcelain Pool Tile
These sky blue penny round glass tiles are perfect for a stunning blue pool design!
Before we dive into your Summer 2021 pool tile design inspo, let’s talk about the two primary swimming pool tile materials: glass and porcelain. Glass is hands down one of the most popular pool tile options available today. Not only is glass tile non-permeable, frost-proof, has a long lifespan, and is relatively low-maintenance, but it also beautifully reflects the water for a gorgeous swimming pool setting you’ll love to show off. The wide range of glass pool tile options lefts you customize your pool’s look and feel, creating a deep blue oasis, a retro white beach-look, or a serene turquoise sea in your backyard.
Porcelain has long been a top swimming pool tile choice for pool owners but requires a more labor-intensive and, therefore, a more costly installation. If you love the idea of a minimalist and modern herringbone pool tile, these are the best choice! They can be used to create a stunning Mid-Century Modern design in your yard, turning every day into a Palm Springs vacation.
Tile Club carries both glass and porcelain swimming pool tile, but you’ll find that our glass tile reigns supreme because of its versatility, beauty, and extensive selection of colors, shapes, and styles available!
