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 :)

That looks very pretty. I am going with a Talavera that is designed for pools. Looking to have something like this, 1610613711455.png1610613711455.png1610613711455.png1610613711455.png Does anyone have an opinion? Good bad, indifferent?

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.View attachment 172816
Looks great! What type of tile or material is that called around your spa? We are looking for something like that for our fountain.

What pool coping do you have? Is it techo bloc onyx? That’s what we are doing. There aren’t many photos out there especially with concrete decking. Love it, does it get extremely hot?

thanks
