Diverse and Versatile

Mosaic tiles are diverse in colors, patterns, textures, shapes and sizes. These types of tiles are incredibly versatile, meaning you can easily customize them to suit your tiling preferences and design style. This makes them the ideal choice if you are a bathroom or kitchen remodeling aficionado wanting to add some extra flair to your home.

When selecting your ideal tile pattern, remember to always be aware of the area you wish to add mosaics—is it an entire area or simply a feature strip? You may opt to go for tiles of different shapes to create cool designs and patterns within the area you are tiling.

Broad Design Choice

The next important stage in the selection process is to decide the tile design you wish to use. Mosaic tiles come in various patterns and textures and of course different price points. Among the most popular and highly recommended is the patterned mosaic tile option. The designs and color choices are almost endless, which makes finding your perfect mosaic tile that bit more exciting.

As you choose your ideal mosaic tiles, ensure that you look at the aspect of tile porosity and durability. This is particularly important if you intend to use them on floors, in wet areas and in high traffic areas.

Suitable Places for Mosaic Tiles

Bathrooms and showers make ideal locations to begin playing around or experimenting with mosaic tiles within your home. Mosaic tiles can instantly enhance the life of your bathroom with just a feature strip or a whole wall and then complimenting with neutral tiles to amplify the WOW factor of the mosaic.

Another great place to experiment with mosaic tiles is the kitchen. Your kitchen is an excellent place for trying eye-catching tile backsplashes or areas around your sink and main cooking areas. Don’t forget to research tile porosity due to the presence of water within your kitchen and whether or not the tile requires sealing.
