What are Iridescent Pool Tiles?

Iridescent pool tiles are tiles that feature a glossy, rainbow-like effect. The tile is coated with a special type of enamel or lacquer which allows light to be reflected in different directions, creating a kaleidoscope of colors that shimmer and reflect in the sunlight. 
These colorful pool tiles come in various palettes, from blue iridescent tiles and emerald green iridescent tiles to black iridescent tiles and rich grays. They also come in glossy, frosted, and matte finishes.

Why Should I Choose Iridescent Pool Tiles?

There are many perks and advantages unique to iridescent tiles – you can't go wrong. Take a look at these five reasons why you should include iridescent products in your next tile installation:

1. Your Pool Water will Shimmer and Glow

Have you ever seen a pool and just wanted to dive right in? With iridescent pool tiles, you can create a mesmerizing water effect that encourages everyone to take the plunge. Reflected rainbow hues make the pool look like it’s glowing from within, adding a touch of wonder to your backyard. While porcelain tile has its benefits, it can’t match the iridescent allure.

2. Iridescent Tiles Make Great Use of Sunlight

Sunlight is your best friend when it comes to pool design. Iridescent glass tiles deliver excellent value, reflecting and dispersing light without any additional installation or effort. Iridescent products are the perfect way to get creative with your pool design, utilizing all the available sunlight to create a stunning, multi-dimensional effect.

3. Easy to Clean and Maintain

Regardless of how beautiful it looks, tile is only ever worth buying if it can stand the test of time. How long does pool tile last? Iridescent tiles are a particularly hardwearing and easy to maintain tile, requiring minimal cleaning effort to keep looking just as good as the day it was installed. The rugged color coating is ideal for withstanding harsh chemicals, and the glass is naturally resistant to mold and mildew buildups along pool water lines. Just a few swipes with soap and warm water is enough to keep it looking its best.

4. Endless Color Mixing Opportunities

No one wants a cookie-cutter pool – and with iridescent tiles, you won't have to settle for one. There is a range of different tile colors to choose from, allowing you to mix and match for the perfect pool tile design. Mix blue iridescent tiles with emerald green iridescent tiles for a colorful and trendy pool, or opt for black and gray tones to create a classic, timeless look.

5. A Variety of Shapes and Layouts to Choose From

Iridescent pool tiles can be just as interestingly-shaped as they are colored. You don't have to stick with a plain 1x1 square pattern – choose from multi-sized squares, slim green brick tile, and even triangles. There are an endless number of creative layouts you can use to make your pool area look truly unique.

Iridescent Pool Tile Ideas

Now that you know all the benefits of these bright and magical tiles, here’s some iridescent pool tile inspiration. Below are a few examples of how to use these tiles in your own design:

Create an Ombre Effect

One of the most eye-catching ways to use iridescent tiles is to create an ombre effect in your pool. The tile color gradually changes from a deep blue to light aquamarine from one end to the other, or from top to bottom. The result is a stunning visual pattern that will capture attention and draw people in.

Mix Tones for a Marbled Look

For a more subtle approach, mix and match multiple tones for a marbled-like effect. For example, you could use black iridescent tiles with gray iridescent tiles for a contemporary look. Or, go wild with emerald green and blue tone tiles to create a more whimsical design.

Include Iridescent Accents

Mix and match iridescent tiles with other materials to create a truly unique pool. You could opt for a mix of plain glass tiles and iridescent tiles, or add in other accents such as porcelain tile, stone, or pebble.
