All About Mosaic Tile Flooring

Tile is the perfect design solution to express creativity.

Mosaic tile flooring has been around for thousands of years due to its beautifully sophisticated design and high-end qualities. From the intricate mosaic flooring in ancient Greek and Rome to the retro mosaics in your grandmother’s home, this style has continued to be popular throughout the years—and it’s not just for floors! It is commonly found on backsplashes and fireplace surrounds, for example. However, if you’re looking to install new floors and are willing to invest a bit more, mosaic tiles are an excellent choice that won’t let you down.

Different Types of Tile Flooring

What Is Mosaic Tile?

Mosaic tiles are more of a style than a material. Any type of tile, ceramic, porcelain, stone, or glass can be arranged in a mosaic pattern. The tiles are typically small for the greatest impact with the design. The materials can also be mixed, such as porcelain tile with glass tile accents to add more dimensional depth and style to the mosaic pattern. There are limitless colors, patterns, and designs to create with a mosaic technique.

Today, many mosaic flooring patterns are pre-made and connected to a mesh backing for easy installation. They can come in rectangular, square, or hexagonal shapes and are adhered to the floor or other application with thin-set mortar. The tile sheets can be cut to size to fit into flooring or wall spaces that may have unique architectural angles.

Mosaic Flooring is Durable

The greatest benefit of mosaic tile are all the design possibilities you have to choose from. You can find many pre-set mosaic patterns that are already on the market and easily install them. Or, you’re free to get really creative and come up with your own custom design that goes with your unique interior design. Just like any tile installation, mosaic tiles are as durable and waterproof as the materials they’re made from. Mosaic floor tiles are common in bathrooms, but are also often found in kitchens, laundry rooms, mudrooms, and sunrooms.

Installing Mosaic Tile Flooring

Installing mosaic tile flooring can be tricky because it must be laid out evenly to achieve clean grout lines. In rooms where there will be a lot of moisture, such as bathrooms, you may want to consider textured tiles to give a more slip-resistant surface or area rugs in high traffic spaces. It is always advisable to have an experienced flooring professional who specializes in installing mosaic tile do the work for you. You’re in good hands when you turn to our flooring experts.
