Although more common for countertops, backsplashes, shower floors and walls, mosaic glass tiles on floors can imbue a room with a sense of lavish luxury. Invoking the elegance of an upscale spa, these luminous tiles can elevate the style and sophistication of any space.
What is mosaic tile? Mosaic tile is any combination of materials such as glass, ceramic, porcelain or stone, usually set in a small format and set on a mesh sheet for easy installation. With hundreds of mosaics to choose from, how do you know when and where to use the mosaic? Mosaics can be incorporated into the design of any backsplash, shower, bath or floor.
When designing a shower, mosaics can be used several different ways to really bring that “wow” factor to your bathroom. A linear glass mosaic running vertically floor to ceiling can add a stunning waterfall effect. Conversely, a mosaic running horizontally in a shower, or in the back of a niche, could bring in that subtle pop of needed color.
Mosaics are perfect to use as a backsplash in full, or as an accent with ceramic or stone subway style tile. Small or larger format mosaic tile used as an entire backsplash are a great way to add dimension and character to a kitchen. It’s also a good way to ground all of the various colors and finishes in a kitchen and surrounding rooms. If the countertop wants to be the main focus of the space, you can either use a few inches of mosaic at the base of the backsplash and then transition into a stone or ceramic tile above, or you can simply break up a mosaic sheet and add one decorative strip as an elegant design element.
