Contemporary Pool Mosaics: Everybody into the Pool! February 17 2023 Blue Water Pool Mosaics As the owner of a pool, you know there’s nothing quite as magical as that first dip of the season. And if you reside somewhere that allows you to swim all year long, you know just how lucky you are to be able to kick back, turn up the tunes, and enjoy the warm, crystal-blue waters in your little backyard oasis. However, if you’re looking to elevate the style of your pool even more, why not consider adding some gorgeous contemporary pool mosaics? What is a Pool Mosaic? Like mosaics you’d see in buildings or your local museum, pool mosaics are made out of small pieces of glass or porcelain tile that are designed to create an image. When it comes to contemporary pool mosaics, these are usually something aquatic, like a sea turtle, dolphin, and mermaid. However, you’re not relegated to only marine-inspired mosaics in their basic animated form. Far from it, actually! If you’re looking for something that will add a bit more elegance to your pool, you can opt for contemporary pool mosaics. While these will still offer aquatic themes, such as waves, marlins, dolphins, and whales, these contemporary pool mosaics are a lot more upscale. They feature intricate, wavy designs and come in natural colors like blue and black. If you’d rather opt for something more classic, you can also choose from a wide selection of designs, including tribal corner scrolls, baroque medallions, and compasses. Why Get a Contemporary Pool Mosaic? So why should you get a contemporary pool mosaic installed? And if you can, should you install more than one design? Let’s address that last question first. Yes, if you fall in love with more than one contemporary mosaic design, you can absolutely get more than one installed in your pool. Maybe you want a contemporary dolphin swimming alongside you on the interior sides of the pool, while four beautiful, intrinsically-designed medallions are on display in every corner. This is your pool; create it however you see fit! But back to the first question: why should you get a contemporary pool mosaic in the first place? The most common reason is for aesthetic purposes. Though it’s in your backyard, your pool is still a part of your home, and your home is meant to show off your personality and style. By installing contemporary pool mosaics, you can add a little bit of your personality and flare into it, which helps make your home feel more complete. The second reason is that it makes swimming more enjoyable, especially if you have children. Young ones will feel like they’re in the middle of an undersea adventure when you get mosaics of contemporary whales, turtles, or dolphins installed in your pool. Last but not least, installing a pool mosaic actually helps add value to your home. If you plan on selling your home in the next five or 10 years, an artistic statement like a pool mosaic adds up to 7% value to your home. This allows you to get more money from interested homebuyers. How Long Does It Take to Install a Pool Mosaic? On average, from start to finish it takes about two days to install a pool mosaic. This doesn’t count the process of draining and refilling the pool. Mosaic tile in itself tends to be a pretty easy installation process, especially since a backing mesh is used to install the tiles. While the actual installation takes only 2 days, it’s recommended that you wait about 4 days after installation to refill the pool. This time frame allows everything to firm up. The time it takes for everything to firm up can also vary depending on the weather that day. How to Take Care of a Pool Mosaic Once Installed Once your contemporary pool mosaic is installed, you may be wondering how to keep it looking its best. Here are a couple of tips to use: Clean any buildup with a soft-bristled brush, like a toothbrush, to get in between the grooves. Use a pool vac to get up any leaves or grass trimmings that may have fallen into the pool. Clean when the pool line is low. Otherwise, the process won’t be as effective. Inspect regularly and wipe away dirt as soon as you see it. Remember, the more attentive you are, the more likely you’ll be to notice and take care of problems before they get worse. IG Mosaic PlayfulCircleDolphin Large Night How to Choose the Right Pool Mosaic for You If you’re interested in buying a pool mosaic, you should consider what you want from it. The darker the color, the more difficult it’ll be to see at night, if not impossible. So if you want to enjoy your pool at all hours of the day, invest in a vibrant color or one that glows in the dark. Also, consider the size of your pool and the mosaic you’re interested in. Is your pool big enough to house it? Likewise, is the mosaic so tiny that it’s going to be missed? Another important factor to consider are the maintenance requirements.
