Creative decorating with mosaic tiles

Traditionally, mosaics were found in their millions lining swimming pools. However, today there is a fabulous choice of colours, materials, shapes and sizes, making mosaic tiles the perfect way to add eye-catching decorative detail to the home, on both walls and floors.

Our range includes hundreds of different mosaics and new designs are constantly being added. From the iridescent Murano Glass and Bronzelux ranges to exotic mother of pearl finish and the industrial-look Metalux range – mosaics make a fashionable stylish addition to bathrooms and kitchens.

A recent design trend is to create a unique, feature wall, providing contrast with surrounding plain field tiles. Likewise, their small size means mosaics are a practical solution for tiling tight or irregular shaped spaces, such as splashbacks or behind cookers.

They are also invaluable as a decorative detail within a plain tiled floor or defining a zone within a room, such as a wet room area within a bathroom. Many ranges are suitable for both the floor and the walls, creating a co-ordinated effect. However, if you plan to do this, do make sure you choose a range which is suitable for both – not all are. The textured surface of mosaics, created by the regular grout line, is also a useful anti-slip feature in wet areas such as showers and bathrooms.

And of course, mosaics are still used in and around swimming pools, but they need no longer be simply blue.
