Its swimsuit season again… Is your pool tile in style?

modwalls® Brio® Cool Pool blend

We love it when our customers take their remodeling projects outdoors; we just want to take a dip in every pool photo we see! It can be a real tease, actually…

Lately we’ve been collaborating with more and more designers and home owners in creating dream backyards with modwalls® tiles and we couldn’t be more excited about it!  Tile can be the jewel of any pool remodel and modwalls® has hundreds of in stock modern tile designs, unique tile colors and tile blends that are perfectly suited for any outdoor tile installation.

We’re anxiously awaiting photos of said new projects, but in the meantime, here’s the rundown of modwalls® in stock pool tile and outdoor tile options as well as some sweet post-remodel installation photos we’ve already received from our customers.

Modwalls® ¾” Brio glass tiles are our most popular outdoor tile option.  And why you ask?  Because we’ve got almost every solid color under the sun available starting at $4.25 for a 1.15 square foot sheet; we have our signature, super affordable stock Brio® blends starting at $5.95 a sheet, and we can create a completely CUSTOM Brio® blend out of any combination of our Brio® Color, Brio® Pearl, Brio® Clear or Brio® Shimmer tiles within about 2 weeks.

modwalls® Brio® Shimmer tiles make a perfect pool border. This is our Brio® "Blueville" tile.

Our 8mm thick, kiln fired Lush® glass tiles are being used more and more for pool & hot tub tile remodels. We stock a variety of sizes and array of colors in our Lush® rectangle subway options, modern mini-subway tile blends as well as square tile options, all perfected suited for your pool remodel. And our artistic Lush® Henry Road tiles are an amazing accent tile used alone, or you can create a “tile wallpaper” effect by installing a whole wall of tile. The result is AWESOME!  Our fantasy pool would include at least a 6” tile pool border with our Lush® Henry Road Sky/ Fog Bank Circles tile…!

Lush® 1x1 blends & 3x6 subway tiles were used in these pool installations.

Modwalls® ModDotz™ porcelain penny rounds were made for wet installations (they have a really low moisture absorption rate), and are one of the best pool tiles out there. Adorable, available in super cool candy-like colors, and modern with a retro twist, ModDotz™ are a great tile for any installation. If you’re remodeling your pool or hot tub and looking for a unique product with a little flare, modwalls® ModDotz™ might be right up your alley.

Finally, if sustainable tile is your bag, we’ve got you covered.  We have recycled glass tile in a few formats: our flat matte finished, rectangle shaped Viridian™ 98% recycled glass tile 1×2 Brix Apple and 1×2 Brix Cotton are two options. If you like a little more sparkle and shine we have iridescent modwalls® Viridian™ 1×1 Pearl tiles. And then there is one of our favorite products, modwalls® 100% Recycled Glass Pebbles. They’re so unique and so dang cool and you simply cannot find anything else like them on the market!

    With so many tile choices available to homeowners renovating bathrooms, it is hard to pick just one material. Depending on the space available, the shower, vanity, toilet area, and floor can be deigned in tiles of different colors, textures, and style for a contemporary, yet coordinated look. Because the color choices range from the neutral to the very bold, go for color, but make sure you can live with it now. If you think you might sell your home in a few years, consider whether the next owner will find your chartreuse and pink bathroom an eyesore or cutting edge design?
