Pool Renovations

If your pool is looking tired and in need of a little TLC, the team at Creative Home Renovations can help bring your pool back to life.

There are a number of techniques to revitalise even the most tired looking pools, but our team will initially perform an assessment of the existing pool to ensure the structure is sound, free from rust, cracking, and all plumbing services are in order.

Improving the aesthetics of the pool can dramatically improve its look and wow factor and will add value to the home as well. Our design team will work with the client to design a concept that enhances the look and function of the pool while remaining within budget.

Pool re-tiling is a common upgrade, whether it be a complete pool re-tile or a wide band around the pool perimeter. Pool tiles are commonly available in either ceramic or glass and although colours can vary, clients will often opt for a blue or green variant.

Adding pool lighting can enhance its night-time appearance as it reflects off the pool tiles. Temperature control with solar or gas heating can add a level of comfort for year-round usage of the pool. Considering these factors with the design team at Creative Home Renovations is one of the many key benefits of working with our company.

Pool coping can quickly give the appearance of a new looking pool. Depending on the clients tastes and budget, either a simple re-coping of the pool with tiles or pavers can be achieved. For an even greater impact, paving or tiling around the entire pool area will dramatically enhance its look and style.

A variety of porcelain tiles or natural stone pavers can be used around the pool. Creative Home Renovations’ new showroom hosts a dedicated selection of natural stone pavers and tiles including silver, light, or classic travertine, bluestone, granite and marble variants for clients preferring the natural range of stone.

Alternatively, for a seamless look, exposed concrete aggregate with seeded pebbles provides a stunning, low maintenance and comfortable surface around a pool.

Creative Home Renovations source high quality natural stone tiles and pavers for our home renovation projects. Our range of Travertine, Marble, Limestone, Bluestone and Granite are of superior quality to many competitors and our in-house construction team take care of the laying and finishing for all of our projects.

These products are available in a number of cuts, sizes, thicknesses, finishes, and colours. See below for more information on our range of natural stone tiles and pavers.

Travertine

Travertine has been used as a building stone since ancient times. Travertine is a dense closely compacted form of Limestone found mostly in areas where circulating ground water contains Calcium carbonate, often forming around the mouths of hot spring waters. Often used as decorative building stone, applicable for both indoors and outdoors; it can be used in all rooms of the house from living areas, bathrooms, kitchens, outdoor living spaces, and around pools.

The Travertine we supply is available in a variety of sizes, thickenesses, colours and finishes. Stair cappings/pool edging are also available in both bullnose and square edge.

Marble

Marble is formed from Limestone, by additional heat and the earths crust forces. This process is called re-crystallization. The variety, textures and makeup of the marble is the result of the differences in the original carbonate minerals, the impurities, and the heat forces during this process. Marble is ageless and always remains contemporary. The most common uses of marble include interior and exterior wall cladding, flooring and paving, fireplaces, vanity tops, kitchen bench tops, table tops, and staircases.

The Marble we supply is available in a variety of colours, shapes, sizes and finishes for both indoor and outdoor use.

Limestone

Limestone tiles are made up mostly of a mineral form of Calcium Carbonate called Calcite. They are formed when the calcium carbonate crystallizes. Limestone tiles are typically formed over many years at the bottom of the oceans or lakes from the accumulation of shells, bones and other calcium rich goods. Limestone tiles are the stone of choice for elegant projects – the soft look and smooth feeling surface is the main reason for the popularity of this material.

Our limestone tiles are sourced from many parts of the world and is available in either honed (matte) or polished (shiny) finish. Most common uses: Interior and exterior wall cladding, interior and exterior flooring and paving, staircases, counter tops.

Bluestone

Bluestone tiles are medium grained dark and heavy rock, harder than granite. Bluestone was used extensively as cobblestone, and for kerbs and gutters, many examples which still exist in some of Melbourne’s smaller city lanes and 19th Century inner suburban lanes. Bluestone tiles offer an excellent hard durable surface offering good scratch and slip resistance. Ideal for all commercial, home, internal and external applications, Bluestone tiles can be used for indoor or outdoor applications.

Granite

Granite tiles are commonly believed to have been formed from volcanic emissions or solidified molten rocks under the earths crust pressure. Granite is a hard, course grained crystalline rock and is known to be a strong and durable stone. Granite’s crystalline structure is far more resistant to abrasions, staining and discoloration than most marbles. Denser and stronger than all natural stones, granite is an excellent choice for high traffic areas where class and style is desired.

Most common uses include interior and exterior wall cladding, indoor and outdoor paving, residential and commercial counter tops, kitchen and bathroom bench tops.
