Top 4 Reasons to Choose Lava Stone Tiles for Pool Decks, Patios, and Driveways.

Your outdoor space is like an additional room of your home, and you enjoy relaxing and spending time in it. Understandably, you want to maintain its appearance. However, with the wide array of decorative choices available, achieving this goal can be challenging.

When it comes to freshening up outdoor space, lava stone tiles are a fantastic choice for several reasons. Here are four of the top reasons why.


Lava stone is an incredibly durable material that offers excellent resistance to cracking and chipping. This makes it a great choice for outdoor use, as it can easily withstand heavy pedestrian traffic and even the weight of vehicles. Also, it is less prone to damage from accidental drops of outdoor equipment such as baseball bats or pool chairs. Consequently, you won't have to replace lava stone tiles as frequently as with other options, making it a worthy investment that will last longer.

Unique Pattern

Lava stones are formed as lava cools, creating unique patterns and surface characteristics. This makes each stone distinct from the other, resulting in a one-of-a-kind aesthetic.

Despite their seemingly random patterns, lava stones can be arranged in a deliberate and visually appealing manner. By placing similar markings side by side, these stones can create a beautiful and unique flow, enhancing the look of your outdoor space and giving you a sense of pride in your accomplishment.

Cool and Fade Resistant

Thanks to its porous nature, lava stone dissipates heat well. This makes it an excellent option for pool decks and patios as there is a much less likely chance of burning your feet when walking barefoot.

Additionally, the lava stone surface is extremely durable and can resist UV exposure, making it highly fade-resistant and ensuring your tiles look beautiful for years to come.

Non-Slip Surface

Lava stone tiles offer many benefits, including their natural, non-slip surface with high COF levels. Due to the textured and porous nature of the stones, they are highly suitable for wet climates. Whether you're walking on them barefoot or with shoes, the chances of slipping are significantly reduced. Additionally, they are ideal for pool areas, as the water splashed out does not pose any slip risk, making them a perfect choice for outdoor spaces.

It is essential to remember that engaging in activities around swimming pools always comes with a certain degree of risk and requires caution. However, using lava stone tiles can help reduce the risk of slip and fall accidents caused by a slippery surface. With these tiles, you, your children, and your guests can safely enjoy a fun day of jumping and diving in the pool without worrying about potential accidents.
