However, before you start shopping for your travertine, make sure that you take these things into consideration before you start tiling your pool:
Decide how you want to feel when you see your pool
There are many reasons why people choose to have a pool. Consider how you and/or your guests should feel when they enter your pool area once you’ve completed your renovation. For example, you may prefer a casual and relaxing oasis, an exotic Balinese retreat, a sleek sophisticated minimalist look or an impressive grand Versace style villa?
This will then determine what type of travertine tiles and pool coping will work better to serve your goal.
Understand the position of your pool
Is your pool uncovered and facing west? It may be a good idea to choose light travertines tile to help repel excess heat from the afternoon sun. However, you may not want to go too light because it may create a reflection with the sun. The positioning and external factors surrounding your pool will make a difference to how you use your pool area. You don’t want to install your pool, tiles and pool coping and realise this when it’s too late!
Consider your lighting and furniture as well if you have an indoor pool.
Consider the colour of your pool
Is your swimming pool aqua, teal or green? Once you’re aware of this, it will help you to choose the right stone tiles to enhance the look of your pool. For example, if your pool is dark blue in colour, you may choose a lighter coloured tile such as Light Ivory Travertine Tiles, to create a contrasting effect.
Your pool has to be paired with the travertine tiles you choose. Together, they will set the scene for creating your pool area.
