Inspiration for Using Mosaic Tiles

Adding a gorgeous accent or full feature wall using mosaic tiles is a wonderful idea for giving your plain room a little extra something so I thought today we could look at some amazing inspiration for beautiful mosaic tiles to give you some ideas of how you might incorporate them into your kitchen or bathroom design – or really anywhere you want your eye to be drawn.

Using them to tile a whole wall creates a feature effect and I adore the use of these pink glass mosaics as seen here for a girly glam look. The darker nearly black tile keeps it from being too ‘sugary’. Using a white tile on adjoining walls means the tiles stand out without being overpowering.

Glass can be used as a simple accent to a plainer tile allowing the eye to move around the room but why not use them vertically on a wall as in this impressive shower? Our Grey Stone Glass Mosaic works beautifully with a larger format tile creating a contrast to keep a roomscape interesting.

I also love the effect of these Perla Mosaic Effect Wall Tiles. Perfect for adding texture without being overpowering in a room and as a full tile, you’ll have less grout lines and joins to keep clean!

For an earthy neutral look, you can’t do much better than our Expresso Marble Mosaic Tiles. I love how soft movement in these tiles really gives a room a bit of energy without being loud or fussy and the variation keeps things from being too plain. The longer rectangular shape is also unexpected so it’s perfect for a more contemporary space.

If you are looking to add texture and give your home a more rustic look, then you might want to consider our Canyon Cream Stone Tiles. Whether used to contrast with contemporary fittings or to enhance a more traditional scheme, these are sure to create a statement.

And finally, there’s no doubt that ‘black is the new black’ in interior design and embracing darker colours in our homes is all the rage. So why not bring a bit of that drama with our Royal Black Gloss Mosaic Effect Tile? Whether you choose to create a feature wall as in our bathroom below or cover an entire room in these tiles for a dramatic moody effect, this is definitely a look for those that like to make a statement!

If you are considering installing mosaic tile for your next project, why not check out our mosaic backer sheets which reduces the flexibility of mosaic sheets and assists you with achieving an overall superior even finish?
