Ideas for Using Beautiful Mexican Tile in Pools

Many pools are just plain boring when they don’t have to be! You don’t have to settle for a typical and factory-looking pool, instead use beautiful Mexican solid color and decorative tile to make your pool truly dazzling.

Here are just a few ways to create a one-of-a-kind pool that truly reflects your unique personality and taste.

Perhaps, you’re thinking, “Mexican tile wouldn’t hold up in a pool!” That may have been true of the original colonial red clay Talavera tiles. But modern Mexican tile comes in high-temperature fired ceramic, and if your contractor insists on using porcelain, not a problem! Most of our Especial and Prima designs (except washed colors and Matte finishes) are available in porcelain as well.
