Here at Tiles 2 Go in Preston, we have more than 25 years experience in the tiling industry. As a result we have seen tiling tends and patterns come and go. However, mosaic tiling has stood the test of time. From Romans to Victorians, it seems every period has had an input on mosaic tiles, and they remain incredibly popular. But what is the secret to this popularity? Well, this is our guide to the advantages of mosaic tiling
One of the main advantages of mosaic tiling is that it suits any home, no matter the colour scheme or styling theme.
Mosaic tiles can use such a wide range of colours, that even the most contemporary kitchen can look great with a mosaic splashback. From monochrome to shades of grey, contemporary kitchens and bathroom make use of mosaic tiling by choosing the colours selectively, to fit with the colour scheme.
In contrast, more traditional bathrooms, or kitchens with a decorative theme, can use mosaics for feature walls, or larger visual pieces to attract attention and draw out the colours.
The second item on our guide to the advantages of mosaic tiling, is that they really make the most of texture. A mosaic naturally adds texture to any wall because of the joins between the many different tiles. However, if you use slightly larger tiles, that themselves are textured, the result can be phenomenal.
Mosaic tiling is hardwearing, durable, and versatile. I mean, we are still digging up intact, roman mosaics around the world, more than 2000 years later! If that isn’t a testament to exactly how durable mosaics can be, I don’t know what is! This means that they are perfect for halls where you may expect a lot of footfall, bathrooms and kitchens where they will need to be waterproof, and even conservatories and porches where they will deal with mud. Whatever you throw at them, mosaics are durable.
