Best tips for choosing the color for the interior of the pool

One of the most important questions or doubts that we come out with is the color of water after choosing the tonality of the interior of the pool. For our pool interior, we can choose a sky blue color, green, transparent, etc. People get used to think that blue colour is the only one that exists, the most typical for swimming pools due to its association with water.  There are thousands of tastes and people interested in innovation through a huge range of different tonalities.

Several years ago it was unthinkable to have a red or pink pool. Nowadays the situation is completely different and each pool has a different touch. You have to take care of lightning effects in order to choose the color. In fact, an outdoor pool, where the blue sky will be reflected on the water, is completely different from an indoor pool, where the roof will reflect its own color on the water. Lightning bulbs are also important because they can give a colored tonality, so if you use them inside the pool, it can represent a very interesting visual appeal.  

Basic aspects to consider:

People usually try to reflect a concrete effect and make their pool shiny. We have to consider that the reflection of the sky has a close relationship with color. Water absorbs reddish, orange and yellow tones more easily than blue tones. For that same reason, we usually see a bluish tone. As you go deeper into the depth, the blue color becomes darker, while if there is no more water and no more than 50 cm deep, then we perceive the opposite effect and we see the transparency of water. Lights and the environment also influence considerably. When there is a lot of sunlight, the color is lighter, while if there is hardly any light, water will appear darker.

How to choose the inside color of the pool

Almost everyone wants to reflect a water mosaic effect, so we have to think about the color that we are going to choose. From Natucer we propose an extended series of shades that will help your pool transmit concepts such as harmony, vividness, relaxation, etc. The premise will be to create that relaxing effect with that kind of water that can bring an exclusive and beautiful touch. So our question: Why our pools must be the same look? MAKE YOURS UNIQUE!

White tonality:

White works especially in those very sunny areas where you want to highlight the elements of the interior of the pool and around its area as well. With white mosaic, something that you can find in Porc Light, you will get a relaxing effect  with a blue sky water touch. This type of mosaic is mainly used in pool hotels and spas. Obviously, you have to care about the cleaning of the whole pool in case you want to keep this incredible effect.

Blue tonality:

Blue color is usually associated with tranquility and relaxation. If you pick this one there are different types of varieties ranging from turquoise, blue and deep blue. We recommend using this color in home pools, hotels and houses as long as you want to reflect a pleasant feeling of comfort. It should be noted that blue is usually the most used color in coating when it comes about obtaining a refreshing water tone. Here it depends a lot on the range of color you use, although we propose a very intense tone called Indigo.

Beige tonality:

If you expand to a beige tonality, you will get a mosaic reflection on water with a turquoise tone. Our own recommendation would be to use Cloud porcelain pool.

Gray tonality:

The grayish tones try to hide the remains of dust accumulated in the interior of the pool, and they can even imitate an idyllic lake or ocean style. It is highly recommended for hotels. If you want a surprising effect thinking about obtaining some kind of a blue sea color, then we recommend you to try the gray mosaic. In fact, we propose a glossy finish called Iron.

Black tonality:

Black is undoubtedly a very complicated color when is used in decoration, but it also has very remarkable aspects. The first from the list is that it manages to attract heat and, therefore, elevate the temperature of the pool. In addition to this, if you are interested some kind of a “mirror effect”, there is no better tonality than black. Our recommendation is that you can combine inside the pool with black and all external with white, the contrast will be some kind of a minimalist trend. On the other hand, if you are considering the idea of choosing this color, we warm you that is not recommended to use light bulbs inside of the pool because you can get an unsightly visual feeling. We have to recognize that this advice was a recommendation brought by some of our stand visitors at Coverings show (Orlando – USA).

Green tonality:

You can always try to look for that natural pool touch by using a green tonality. Our recommendation is that you should use as much as vegetation you can put around the pool in case you want to obtain a relaxing effect. Thanks to our Emerald porcelain series, you will achieve that desired touch.

Red tonality:

Our last advice, which is also something that has arisen through the monitoring of trends, as well as listening to opinions and demands coming from different clients, is the red mosaic in coating. There is a great way to combine a 10×10 cm destonificated red tone, so you can obtain a striking effect while you add warmth within the ambience. With this color you will get a transparent water that will change its appareance considerating the current weather and the state of the sky. Depending on the amount of light, as well as the season of the year and time of day, you will get one or another sensation.

For these reasons, we encourage you to try any of the tones we offer together with the possibility of combining the pool coating with other Natucer products like our special and complementary pieces (pool coverlets, half-round pool, grating, pool gutters, etc.).

Finally, we would like to emphasize that our porcelain has a greater resistance. It is considered as a great choice due to its destonification and resistance for a long time under water. With all of it we are always working in order to improve and make your decoration something more natural and permanent.
