Whether you opt for a full feature wall, a feature floor, or even a feature backsplash, there are a number of ways that you can use tiles in the kitchen to create a striking and interesting visual feature. This can become the focal point of the room, and add personality and style. In a contemporary kitchen, the tiles you use to achieve this are vital, as they must complement or emphasize the contemporary design scheme. Mosaic tiling is one option. But how can mosaic tiling be contemporary? And what kind of tiles and colours should you opt for? Well, here at Tiles 2 Go, we are Preston’s leading tiling professionals. As a result, we have produced this guide to everything you should know about creating a mosaic feature in a contemporary kitchen.
Creating a mosaic feature in a contemporary kitchen
Mosaic tiling and contemporary design can work extremely well together. The key is to choose tiles, and a pattern, that will suit your contemporary kitchen. You should consider:
- The colour of the mosaic- while traditional mosaics will combine together to create an image, contemporary mosaics are all about the abstract. This means using colour in a way that brings meaning and connection to your mosaic, while also matching with the colour of your kitchen. Different colour combinations can work well together to create shapes and designs that will look striking in any kitchen.
- The size of the tiles- while mosaic tiling is typically completed using small tiles, for a contemporary space, larger tiles can be very effective too. These can still be positioned together, to create a piece of visual art. And without as many grout lines dividing the different tiles, the effect is more subtle.
