I’m deciding on pool tile. There are a lot of amazing stone look tiles that are 6”x13” that I love, we like modern not your typical glazed tile. Our builder isn’t too found of it because he says it looks more like a wall tile. Is there any functional reason to stay away from a 6x12” and do a typical 6”x6”? Our pool is a rectangle so no curves to contend with.

thanks,
Liz

HI! I think they will look great! I know there are a few builds recently on here using longer tiles like that for their waterline tiles. I wish I looked around a bit more because after my tile was going up I found the same tile in a larger size. Good luck :)

we did 6x12 for our waterline, 12x24 for the bond beam, and stone veneer for the spa. We loved the way it turned out. I wanted the modern look without the 6x6 classic look. All my tile was less than my $10 budget From NPT.1610596641505.jpeg
