The Appeal of Porcelain Tiles

When it comes to creating a visually stunning pool, porcelain tiles are the way to go. These tiles offer both aesthetic beauty and incredible versatility, allowing you to create a pool area or outdoor space that perfectly reflects your style and personality. Their clean lines and smooth surface create a sophisticated ambiance that will turn your backyard into a luxurious oasis.

Their versatility allows them to seamlessly blend with any design or preference.  From sleek and modern to rustic and textured, porcelain tiles offer something for every taste. The adaptable nature of porcelain tiles allows you to truly make your pool surround one-of-a-kind, instantly elevating the aesthetic of any pool area.


Durability and Longevity

Porcelain tiles are incredibly durable and long-lasting, able to withstand the wear and tear that comes with a pool or outdoor environment. Porcelain tiles are resistant to scratches, fading, and stains, ensuring that they will maintain their pristine appearance even after years of use. Due to their robust nature, they can withstand harsh elements such as exposure to chlorine and fluctuating temperatures, without losing their integrity. You can create a pool surround that not only looks stunning but will also continue to do so for years, providing you with long-lasting beauty and durability.  


Easy Maintenance

One of the key benefits of choosing porcelain tiles for your pool surround is their easy maintenance. After all, who wants to spend hours cleaning and maintaining their pool area when they could be enjoying it instead? With porcelain tiles, you can spend less time worrying about upkeep and more time soaking up the sun. They are highly resistant to stains, scratches, and fading, requiring minimal upkeep to keep them looking their best. They do not require special cleaning products or rigorous maintenance; cleaning with a mild detergent and water is usually sufficient to remove any dirt or debris. This means that your pool area will always look fresh and inviting.


Maximizing Safety with Slip-Resistant Porcelain Tiles

When it comes to designing a pool area, ensuring your pool tiles are safe is a top priority. A safe slip rating of P4 or P5 is required to be used outside or around a pool. At The Pool Tile Company we ensure all of our porcelain tiles are a P5 slip rating, ensuring to minimise the risk of accidents caused by wet surfaces, making them a safer choice for you and your family. The slip-resistant feature is achieved through the texture and finish of the tiles, which create a gripping surface that prevents slips and falls, even when the tiles are wet. With slip-resistant porcelain tiles, you can have peace of mind knowing that you’ve taken the necessary precautions to maximize safety in your pool area.


Cost Effective

When it comes to choosing your pool surround, cost is always a factor to consider. Porcelain tiles provide a cost-effective alternative that doesn’t compromise on aesthetics or quality. You can achieve a luxurious look without breaking the bank. Their durability and longevity mean that they will maintain their pristine appearance without the need for frequent maintenance or replacement. They require minimal upkeep and therefore reducing the need for costly professional cleaning or repairs.
