You may be considering building a swimming pool in the garden or maybe you have it and need to remodel its coating. In any case, we invite you to discover the different types of swimming pool ceramic, glass mosaics and other materials which we could offer you for your reform.
Next, we will show you a selection of images from our leading ceramic suppliers for the swimming pools. You will find tiles and glass mosaics of all kinds: imitating different materials, with thousand colours and different sizes and with different degrees of non-slip treatments.
In addition, we can offer you many ideas for current combinations for outdoor floors for the pools and for the inside part of it; advice on colorimetry and water effects and advice in choosing the type of pool coating that best suits your needs and budgets.
In contrast to what many people think, the glass mosaic is not a ceramic material. The little tiles that form the mosaics are composed of flat glass melted at high temperatures.
This fact makes that the mosaic glass is extremely resistant to humidity, changes in the temperature and chemical products.
The glass mosaic for swimming pools is presented in a mesh, which makes it easier to install and allows it to adapt to the pool design, whether it has straight or curved lines.
In addition, current manufacturing processes allow recreate spectacular effects and colours… In fact, far away from the eternal blue glass mosaics that have been seen in the pools for years.
Let’s look at some of them.
Metallic Glass Mosaics.
The glass mosaics with dark metallic tones or iridescent tones offer a melting pot of shades when combined with the pool water, the sunlight and the inner spotlights of the pool itself.
Golden, silvers, blues, greens and blacks colours, the most fancy colours that will bring an extra style to the whole pool.
Customised Glass Mosaics.
Why do not have an authoring pool? You don’t need to have a big hotel chain to customise the glass mosaics of your pool. Let your imagination run free and dare to have a unique patterned design at the bottom of the water.
Luminescent Glass Mosaics.
The main attraction of the glass mosaics that change color with light is that you can get two different color combinations in the same pool. We love the mystical atmosphere that acquires the tiles when the light reflects on them.
Blue color has always been the star color for the glass mosaics of the pools. But, from a time to now, the obsession with getting the perfect paradise tone is growing by leaps and bounds.
Turquoise colour, aquamarine shades, greenish and even sky blue tones: the colours that remind us of our past holidays (or maybe dreamed holidays) are preferred to tile the walls of our pools.
Knowing which pool ceramic is the ideal for your pool is, without doubt, an arduous task. And it is that, depending on the aesthetic preference of each person, we have to add variables such as the ground, the size of the pool, the conservation and cleaning system, the budget, etc.
Even so, the pool tiles have experienced an important evolution and modernisation, offering unimaginable decorative possibilities and, above all, adaptable to any kind of circumstances.
Now, let’s look at different designs and effects, currently available in our coating catalogues for pools.
The cleanest and, visually, most aesthetic option is tiling the surrounding terrace of our pool with floor tiles that combine with the ceramic or glass mosaic that we have chosen for the pool interior coating.
In addition, it is possible to choose ceramic for swimming pools that integrate the interior style of the house with the outside style, creating a sense of perfect harmony and continuity.
It is essential to choose non-slip ceramic when we are choosing the floor tiles for the exterior zone of the pool. It’s important to bear in mind that this is a critical wet area, and for this reason, safety will be the most important factor in this election.
Our suppliers are governed by different Standards, both German and Spanish, for the non-slip treatments in floors and outdoor flooring.
Ideally, non-slip tiles Class 3 (according to Spanish Standard UNE-ENU 12600:2003); Class C (according to German Standard DIN 51097); or R13 (according to German Standard DIN 51130) should be installed on pool floors and outdoor areas.
Any of these classifications ensure a stable footstep on wet or sloping floors and with bare feet.
