Why is mosaic tiling still popular?

Mosaic tiling

Using really small tiles, or even better, small pieces of tile to create an image on the wall is known as mosaic tiling. From the Ancient Greeks and Romans, to the Victorians, mosaic tiling has had an important place in history. But it’s also a common tiling feature in many homes. Especially bathrooms and kitchens. But why is this?

Why is mosaic tiling still popular?

So, why has mosaic tiling stood the test of time, and remained just as popular? Well, there are a number of reasons, including:

  • Suit any style- mosaic tiling can be created in a way that matches any style space. From traditional mosaics that might create images based on nature, to contemporary mosaics that instead create abstract or geometric images, mosaic tiling can suit any home.
  • Create a feature- because mosaic tiles are so small and detailed, they can create a really striking visual feature in any home. This works best when they are paired with plain tiles in the rest of the space, so that the detail can really stand out.
  • Texture- mosaic tiling is a great way to texture to a room, as the tiny gaps of grout between tiles, create a textured result.
