In recent years, glass tile has become one of the hottest trends in swimming pool design and installation. With so many different styles, shapes, colors, and textures to choose from, the options to customize your glass tile swimming pools are limitless—but do you know what it is you’re looking for?
Designing the right glass tile for your swimming pool can be difficult to navigate when you’re not sure where to start. This month, we gathered some of the best tips for choosing the right swimming pool glass tile, and what the H&H Custom Pools team can do for you.
Before you begin your selection, make sure you do your research on what style you want for your custom swimming pool.
Whichever style, size, or color you choose, consider your personal style and the environment in which you’ll be using it. Transparent glass tiles generally refract light. Mosaic tiles are opaque, while iridium-coated tiles have an iridescent sheen. Transparent and translucent tiles allow you to see the setting materials behind them.
Tip: It is important to use a white or off-white thinset with these tiles to maintain its true color. The grout color should match to keep the look consistent throughout your swimming pool.
Consider the location in which your glass tile will be located. Glass can be slippery; therefore, we do not recommend placing them on top of the steps of your swimming pool.
Combining glass and stone is also an excellent design option. For a cost-effective alternative, consider adding glass accents interspersed with travertine tile in a raised area of your pool.
As with most products, quality plays a major role in the cost of your custom glass tile swimming pool. The most affordable are poured glass tiles that are manufactured in China, whereas more expensive glass tiles are imported from Italy and Spain.
Generally, common factors that impact cost include:
- Glass tile quality
- Color choice
