A Guide to Selecting the Right Colour for your Swimming Pool
It’s often difficult to judge how certain tile colours will look in a swimming pool filled with water. Searching through many different tones of blues and greens from numerous samples and glass mosaic swatches can make the decision even more confusing especially when you also need to consider how colours can change when in water.
And on top of that, it's important to remember that the colour of your pool can be affected by a number of different outdoor elements such as the colour of the sky at any given time, shadowing from trees and buildings and the depth of the pool. The surrounding colours in terms of coping, paving and house can also influence the tone of colour in the pool.
Read on and view our recent client's swimming pools and see the colours they used to achieve their desired effect.
1. Galapagos (light blue blend)
The blend of light blue shades in Galapagos gives an iridescent and cool tone to the water. In this pool Galapagos works perfectly with the surrounding soft colours in the surrounding bluestone and concrete walls to create a timeless outdoor space.
2. GM 20.49 Turquoise
This Bisazza pool uses GM 20.49 with added gold mosaics. The blend of dark turquoise tones creates serious drama to the colour of the water while the scattering of gold adds a little wow factor. The Le Gemme glass collections is embellished with subtle strikes of copper that reflects light in the water and adds an effective visual effect.
