Dark tile with Dark Interior?

Posted by MikeG715 (My Page) on

I am in the process of picking out the tile for my new pool construction. We are going with Tahoe Blue for interior finish and my wife and I a torn with which tiles to choose? We are unsure how it would look with a darker tile that compliments the interior finish as well as our pavers. We see so many pictures with blue tiles and we want to stay away from that if possible.
Does anyone have any suggestions or even better pictures for ideas?
The company we are ordering the tiles through is Nobel Tile.

Thanks for the help! They will be digging tomorrow :) I will post pics as my pool progresses.

RE: Dark tile with Dark Interior?

I was just trying to go to the website to give you some suggestions but your site is wrong. i believe it it ? The other site isn't coming up. I am also just starting a pool in MD. Where are you? What color is your coping and your pavers? I think that plays a part in what color you tile should be?

RE: Dark tile with Dark Interior?

We have Blue Granite. I didn't want to have blue tile either. I didn't want to try and match the color. I wanted some contrast so that the water color stands out. We chose a tile that actually resembles sand. It is really pretty and makes the water color pop! We LOVE it.

RE: Dark tile with Dark Interior? was and and the pavers we are using is Sandstone Buff Charcol from We have narrowed it down to two styles...we should decide this week!
