Marvelous mosaics: where to use mosaic designs in your home

Last Updated May 4, 2016 · Written by Kat Tate

Mosaic tiles are tacky. Or at least that’s what many people wrongly assume. And while Aunt Mary’s latest mosaic craft project might not scream subtle sophistication, the truth is that mosaics can actually add much style and vibrancy to the contemporary home.

In the words of The Castle, it’s what you do with it. And here’s how and where to use modern mosaics in your home:

1 Brighten up your bathroom

Mosaics are incredibly versatile in the bathroom. They can be used to create wallpaper-like patterns, to decorate the shower or bath with a classic or contemporary edge, and to add a pop of colour and delightful detail where it’s lacking.


2 Sleek splashback

Equally, mosaics are a modern marvel in the kitchen. With a delicate design or bold pattern, mosaics provide depth and detail – framing the cooking space and adding a touch of glitter and glam to a neutral colour scheme.


3 Create a feature wall

Mosaics don’t have to just be functional. They can also be used to create a focal point in a contemporary space. Take for instance this sleek bathroom, combining a beautiful box tiled in neutral mosaics and illuminated with downlights. The result is a romantic, exquisite enhancement to the bath:


4 Dramatic design

Usually, mosaics are used in small sections of a space – such as a splashback or bath as mentioned above. But what if you were to go all out, to really eliven and brighten your abode, to create a talking point – an eye-catching design that dazzles in any light? Just like this stunning mosaic design, in luminescent pink and gold tiles, dramatically reflected in the sleek floor and furniture.


Intrigued about the many ways you can incorporate modern mosaics into your home décor? Then your next step is to speak with a tiling expert for advice and ideas.
