New Pool - Water Colour & tiles HELP

Postby Adam-silver » Fri 22 Nov, 2019 05:39

Hi All

I am currently building a new 6 x 4 swimming pool in Spain. I have a specific water colour I want and I am looking for advice as to what colour mosaic tiles to use. I have had a look at some tiles and found some that I think may work but I only have one chance at this so need to get it right. The coping stone & pool deck tiles will be a light stone colour.

Here are some images of the pool colour I would like.

Here are a few tile options in the local tile shop

I really hope someone can help me :)

Thanks

I think your choice is a bit light
Why don't you get large samples and immerse them in water to see the affect

I will try and get large samples, I live in the UK and only nip over to Spain a bit at a time.

I have seen pools that have white tiles and they have a nice blue but a little too light thats why I thought that really light blue might just work. The other blues in the other pictures i posted I think will be too dark. Do you not think ?

Water is clear so white tiles shouldn’t come up blue
Obviously there could be a difference when light passes through the water
Just get some samples and check in water
You say you want to get it right as it would be an expensive mistake if you have the wrong tiles
