When it comes to tile material for pools and wet environments, glass mosaic is one of the most practical and versatile ones out there.
What is a Pool Mosaic
Pool mosaics are patterns, designs and images created by arranging together small, usually colorful, tiles made of glass, ceramic or porcelain. Mosaic projects created for swimming pools and water bodies feature non-porous, weather resistant tiles.
What Makes Glass Mosaic a Popular Tile Choice for Pools?
As a refresher, let us revisit what makes glass mosaic tiles an incredible tile material choice for swimming pools. A good pool glass mosaic tile is:
- Non-porous, thereby making it highly resistant to mildew, mold, fungus and microbes
- Thermal shock resistant – which means the tile would not crack from temperature changes.
- Frost-resistant, making it a suitable material for colder climates
- Chemical resistant, making it more durable. They do not wear off from the usual pool water chemicals and mild detergents and cleaning solutions. Furthermore the color does not fade.
- Easy-to-clean and low maintenance.
- Anti-slip, especially the pool floor tiles.

Let us have a look at some of the most important aspects of selecting mosaic pool designs and materials. And hopefully, by the end of this piece, you will feel more equipped and confident to take the first step toward choosing the ideal mosaic tile art for your swimming pool & water bodies.
