6 Swimming Pool Mosaic Trends for 2022
by Cristi Oramas

Mosaics have adorned the world’s most beautiful and sacred sites dating back to the time of ancient Mesopotamia. By the 4th Century BC, the Greeks transformed mosaics from an unrefined form of expression to the modern art form we still use today.

Today, there are a wide range of mosaics available for any part of your home or outdoor space. They add a unique, artistic feature to your home that represents you and your style. By far, the most common installation of mosaics is in a pool or spa. 

These mosaics must be pool-rated, and if you live in an area that experiences severe weather fluctuations, frost proof as well. This ensures that your stunning pool mosaic is durable enough to withstand the elements and remain a beautiful addition to your outdoor paradise. But with so many options, where do you start? We’ve compiled a list of the six most popular pool mosaic trends of 2022 to help you in your search:

Step Markers & Accent Pool Mosaics

We touched on the practicality of step markers previously, but we would be amiss if we didn’t rank this type of pool mosaic in our top six for the year. Step markers and pool accents are one of the most popular pool mosaics among homeowners. Their small size and low cost make them a perfect choice for adding a little life to your pool or spa.

Accent pool mosaics and step markers can come in glass or porcelain, and like all other mosaic tiles being installed in submerged or wet areas, you want to make sure they are frost-proof and pool rated.
