Mosaic tiles are a timeless way of decorating a wall or floor and can be used as borders, accent points or as entire wall and floor coverings. A popular choice is to use mixed formats using the different textures of mosaics currently available such as glass, stone, metal or wood. Some ranges are decorated with gold, silver and coloured glass which look like individual pieces of jewellery.
Whether you’re tiling an entire bathroom, or creating a captivating kitchen splashback, mosaic tiles are very versatile, and are incredibly easy to cut to size.
They are also probably the most versatile of all tiling formats: small pieces of glass/stone/shell/ceramic/porcelain/metal (or a combination of all or any of these) are all held together on the reverse side, usually by a mesh backing (although some have a film or paper covering on the face rather the back). The mosaic sheets can be cut to fit whatever shape/size you need, and they are then fixed the to wall or floor in the same way as ceramic or porcelain tiles with adhesive and grout.
The advantages of the mosaic sheet are, they can be easily cut into strips for using as a border or an accent, they are forgiving on less than perfect surfaces and they can even be used on curves (not something you can do with an ordinary tile).
When you are looking for something a little different for your next project you’ll find plenty of choice in our Mosaics ranges, whether it’s a mosaic for a border or a feature panel, for a splashback or as a backdrop. There’s a huge range of colours and materials to choose from too: Glass mosaics are available in clear gloss colours, gold fleck, iridescent, mixed and tumbled effects. Natural materials of stone, shell and metal are very popular and fit in beautifully with current interior trends. More unusual materials, such as recycled wood, coconut, bamboo and copper are all available if you are looking for something completely out of the ordinary.
