Interior Tiling Materials and Other Pool Trends
In Australia, our warm (sometimes stinking hot!) climate has always ensured that the swimming pool is the focus of our lifestyles at home. More recently, the trend of the swimming pool incorporating alfresco areas, outdoor rooms and external kitchens has reinforced this Australian icon as the center for all our relaxation, leisure and entertaining activities. According to statistics published by www.poolexpress.com.au in April 2010, one in four Australian homes had a swimming pool. The Swimming Pool & Spa Alliance of Australia (SPASA) confirms that we have the largest per capita rate of pool ownership in the world!
Pool Interior Finishes
Homeowners have a choice when it comes to covering the interior of their pool, popular finishes include:
- Fully tiled (usually in a mosaic)
- Spray on texture coating
- Glass crystals
For this you will need to lay with appropriate thin-set tile adhesives and suitable waterproof or water resistant grouts.

Other Swimming Pool Trends
Light pool interior colours in natural tones are very popular. When combined with natural paving materials like stone or deck a stunning result can be achieved. These colours tend to be both calming and enticing.
No longer is the pool placed in the dead corner of the backyard. The pool now tends to be the feature often combined with an outdoor room enabling the pool to be used all year; when not swimming as a water feature and place to relax.
Infloor cleaning systems are becoming the norm, not a luxury. When combined with automatic fillers and automatic chemical systems with salt chlorination the amount of time you need to spend on the pool is almost non-existent.
