6 Fun Pool Mosaics - Just in Time for Summer!

6 Fun Pool Mosaics - Just in Time for Summer!
by AquaBlu Mosaics

One of the most popular trends for new or refurbished pools has been to add more fun and excitement.

What better way to accomplish this than with pool art – colorful mosaic images that reflect your personality or interests while providing long lasting fun for you, your family and friends.

As the demand for Swimming Pool Mosaics has increased, so has the variety of materials and designs. The manufacturing processes have also improved from simple, almost cartoonish designs to designs with multi-layers of colors creating an almost lifelike design. 

Additionally, pool owners can expect the aesthetic value of their new or refurbished pool to increase substantially with the addition of bright, fanciful pool art that contributes vitality and detail to swimming pools.

Truth is, a swimming pool is a lot more than just an object. A personalized pool with pool mosaics can be a destination of its own.

AquaBlu offers a substantial assortment of artistic pool mosaics – everything from dolphins, turtles and fish to mermaids, garden themes and party favors. Pool mosaics are an excellent way to add a decorative touch without breaking the bank.

Here are six popular pool art ideas to help you get started:

In Your Face Shark

Based on fossil scales found in Australia and the United States, scientists hypothesize sharks first appeared in the ocean around 455 million years ago. Most sharks have five rows of teeth, and can have as many as 3,000 teeth at once. Shark skin feels exactly like sandpaper because it is made up of tiny teeth-like structures called placoid scales, also known as dermal denticles.

So what the heck is a shark doing in your pool? It’s a question your pool visitors are certain to ask after getting over the shock of such a large predator in their face.

The In Your Face Shark is a playful pool favorite along with other shark mosaics that are so realistic that even your dog will hesitate before leaping in.

Swimming Mermaid with Shadow

How beautiful! AquaBlu offers more than a dozen swimming mermaid designs, including mermaid & dolphin, mermaid & turtle and solo mermaids – available with and without shadows.

The mermaid and turtle look like they are actually swimming. A shadowed mermaid makes a compelling centerpiece for a reef scene. Shadowed mosaic tiles add depth to the design. They are actually another tile shape that shadows the original image. This shadowing brings the image off the surface you are applying it to, such as the bottom of the pool, and makes it come alive.

It’s 5 O’clock Somewhere

For pool owners who like to party, the It’s 5 O’clock Somewhere pool mosaic says it all. Vibrant colors and exquisite detail are what set the It’s 5 O'clock Somewhere pool mosaics apart from similar party mosaics. So kick back, it’s time to cool off! Put on some Jimmy Buffet and have a cold drink.

Find the full list of AquaBlu pool party mosaics here. There are flip flops, beachballs, cocktail drinks and bikinis. One of the all-time great party pool mosaics is the Benjamin ($100 bill). Place a couple of these on your pool steps and see how many of your guests try to pick it up – it’s THAT realistic!

Twin Palms

A perfect compliment to the It’s 5 O’clock Somewhere mosaic is the Twin Palms artwork. This stunning 52-inch tall mosaic is often placed in the middle of a pool pointing to the It’s 5 O’clock Somewhere mosaic located on the pool wall just under the waterline tile.

Besides the pool, the Twin Palms exotic tile art looks great in patio and garden areas also. Twin Palms is a terrific way to add character, color and life to your backyard oasis.

Sailfish Group With Shadow

The elusive sailfish is one of the greatest catches for the sport of fishing. Sailfish fishing is one of the most challenging but rewarding game fishes out there due to its large size, lightning speed and spirited fight.

If you’re a fishing enthusiast, you can feel the wonder of sailfish every day with lifelike sailfish pool mosaic tiles. The sailfish group with shadow is especially breathtaking placed in the center of the pool. Two adult sailfish work together, using their dorsal fins to create a barrier around their prey, a school of smaller schooling fish. All images in this mosaic scene are shadowed which adds unbelievable realism.

Other game fish mosaics offered by AquaBlu include mahi mahi, tuna, marlins, snook and rainbow trout.

Joyful Soul Mandala

Not all pool owners want to tattoo their pools with party favors, sharks or game fish. If your pool functions more as of a place for peace and relaxation, consider the Joyful Soul Mandala mosaic.

A mandala, which is Sanskrit for “circle” or “discoid object,” is a geometric design that holds a great deal of symbolism in Hindu and Buddhist cultures. The Joyful Soul Mandala offers an intricate and thoughtful design in meditative shades of blue with sun-colored highlights.

AquaBlu also features another dozen different types of mandalas such as the sun-shaped Boundless Energy Mandala, Cosmic Bliss Mandala, Crystal Sky Mandala and Radiant Beauty Mandala.

Other popular mosaic mandalas include square-shaped mandalas, which are perfect for pool steps and welcoming pool visitors into your personal water sanctuary.
