The holiday season is around the corner and many of us are looking forward to some quality time with our pools. The poolside is often an area where we like to relax and unwind after a long year and the more tranquil the space the more relaxed we feel. We’ve put together some ideas to help you transform your poolside to your very own backyard paradise.
The type of material you choose for your pool will provide a different look and feel to your pool. Many people go for the standard of gunrite or concrete and then covered in plaster. This leaves you with the average looking pool which isn’t the most exciting of choices. Tiles don’t have to be only decorative trim at the top of a pool. Consider installing tiles throughout the pool from the floor to the walls and create a striking pool. Our new Barlevento tiles are made with this purpose in mind.
Colour options aren’t limited to the standard white and aquamarine that most pools are created in. Coloured tiles can transform your pool from bland to oceanic instantly. Our Barlavento tiles are created with this in mind. These tiles paint your pool in the idyllic and refreshing shades of blue and green of the Caribbean waters.
Creating a distinct poolside can be challenging. One way to achieve originality is to install a decorative or patterned tile in your pool. Decorative or printed porcelain tile can create interest and liveliness to an otherwise tired pool waterline. The repetitive stylized shapes and geometric designs of patterned porcelain tile deliver an infusion of personality and statement not always realized in solid colours.
Create a modern and continuous look by installing your tiles not only inside your home but outside it too. This will unify your pool area and home by turning your pool into a breath-taking outdoor feature. Continuous tiling produces a clean and simple style. Select a tile that can be used both indoors and out to achieve this look.
