We all dream of finding the perfect beach home for our annual vacations. Just imagine: a little bungalow shaded by lazily swaying palm trees; a wide deck perfect for sunbathing; a swinging hammock for naps while the sun drifts across the sky; and all within steps of the crashing waves of the ocean.

Naturally, with real estate prices as they are, most of us can barely manage one mortgage, let alone two. Farewell, tropical paradise; we’ll see you in our dreams.

Don’t despair, though. Even if you can can’t afford a real-life house on the water, there’s at least one way for it to feel like you can…

Liquid 3D epoxy floors turn ordinary rooms into bodies of water so lifelike, you’d swear they were real.


Made by Dubai-based company Imperial, this one-of-a-kind flooring features waves, ripples, and all sorts of marine life.

The floors are incredibly detailed, and can be used to create a 3D optical illusion in your very own home. Hey there, Flipper!

They’re suitable for any room, too, so you can create an oceanic oasis in just one space, or outfit your entire house if you’d like.

Wouldn’t it be nice to entertain guests on the edge of this shallow pool?


You can brush your teeth with these gorgeous blue fish underfoot.

Who needs the real ocean when you’ve got this?

Would you ever turn your home into a giant aquarium with floors like these? They’d definitely inspire anyone to keep their floors clean. Not to mention, they’re far more wallet-friendly than an actual beach bungalow!
