How is Mosaic Tile Made?
While mosaic tile was originally installed on-site by placing single pieces of stone and glass down onto a base flooring material like cement, it is now possible to buy pre-made mosaic tiles that are installed as larger sections, like any other tile flooring. Not only is this more practical for many homeowners, but it also tends to be a cheaper method of installation.
Because mosaic is an amalgamation of materials, it can be created with a nearly endless number of different stones and glass. Combinations and patterns abound with mosaic tile, making them a great choice for homeowners who want a customized floor for their home.
Where to Use Mosaic Tile
Mosaic tile can be extremely luxurious, which makes them a wonderful flooring option for bathrooms that you want to give a spa-like feel too. Glass tiles are great for bathroom mosaic flooring as their water-resistant nature can prevent the growth of mold. Relatedly, glass tile will also resist being stained or etched by excessive moisture. For these same reasons, glass mosaic tile is also a good choice for kitchens. Natural stone mosaic flooring, which can be a little more prone to staining, is better saved for hallways, bedrooms, and living rooms.
