Strength and safety: ideas for covering your pool with porcelain stoneware tiles

In the dynamic panorama of modern design, swimming pools have become much more than a place of leisure; they are often one of the most refined and personalised corners of our homes, a true symbol of refinement and innovation. Swimming pool tiles have become the real stars in transforming outdoor spaces. With materials like porcelain stoneware, today we can build pools that are not only beautiful to look at but are also durable and safe.

Architects and designers are exploring a wider range of colours and materials, embracing new trends and effects. That's where porcelain stoneware comes into play: with its wide range of finishes, from concrete to stone and wood, it offers endless possibilities to capture these new trends.

Although aesthetics plays a fundamental role, it cannot be the only criterion used to choose pool tiles. In this article, we will find out why porcelain stoneware has gained the top place in the choice of tiles and how it has led to some extraordinary swimming pool designs.

Why is porcelain stoneware the ideal material for swimming pools?

The first and most obvious advantage of using porcelain stoneware is its beauty. Thanks to the ability to perfectly emulate natural materials such as concrete, stone or wood, porcelain tiles are able to create an authentic and refined look. This means that we can enjoy the beauty of surfaces such as stone or wood without having to cope with the maintenance and durability issues that these materials can have.

But there's more: the strength of 20 mm and 30 mm thick porcelain stoneware for outdoor use is unsurpassed. It is resistant to chemicals, scratches, is non-absorbent and, above all, is anti-slip. This makes it ideal for use in swimming pools.

The advantage of anti-slip tiles

When we talk about swimming pools, safety always comes first. Water can make surfaces dangerously slippery. This is where anti-slip porcelain stoneware proves its value: designed specifically to provide a solid grip, even on damp surfaces, it ensures safe and confident steps around the pool area.
