TILING & MOSAICS can be used for both indoor and outdoor pools. To get a contemporary feel use the tile with a honed surface and combine with a matching grip finish, perfect for internal steps and surrounds. Porcelain can also transform a pool simply by the colour used within the design. With so many colours and shades, porcelain can alter the look of the pool through its reflection in the water. Whether it’s the appearance of the crystal-clear turquoise seas of the Mediterranean, a tranquil mid-blue colourisation, or the dark, novel and dramatic colours popular in contemporary designs, porcelain truly bring creations to life. Cranbourne Stone has a large portfolio of beautiful porcelain for pool lining and surrounds, with all materials designed, cut and hand-finished to order at their premises. By using specialist machinery, quality products, and exemplary customer service, Cranbourne Stone’s dedicated team work hard to ensure all projects are completed to the highest standard.

Carl Vernon Swimming Pools “From our comprehensive portfolio of products, Four Seasons chose a cream stone affect porcelain tiles and black porcelain double edged bespoke copings which works wonderfully to bring out

the splendour of the historic building. Importantly their choice also addressed the challenge of finding stone which not only looks good but includes nonslip properties,” said Jo Stanfield of Cranbourne Stone. Cranbourne Stone utilised its bespoke service and specialist machinery to get over a number of hurdles during the build including cutting coping stone to a specific radius to fit the curved pool edge perfectly. Carl Vernon used its considerable skill to ensure complete accuracy during the renovation which resulted in a seamless result. Carl Vernon Pools 01256 353495 www.carlvernonpools.co.uk
