Return

Offering a high visual impact, mosaic tiles have long been the go-to choice for creating ultra-stylish feature walls and floors for the ultimate wow factor in both interior and exterior spaces. Mosaic tiles add an element of texture and pattern into any design and decorating scheme with their unique ability of allowing an immense range of creative styles to be achieved, from luscious glass mosaic blends of colour to custom wall murals, feature panels and intricate geometric patterns.

Mosaic tiles are most commonly made up of a small series of shaped tiles glued onto a large sheet (most often the sheet sizes are approximately 300 x 300mm) for ease of installation. There are many tactile and stylish materials available when it comes to mosaics, ranging from the popular and highly durable glass mosaics to porcelain or ceramic tiles, natural stone, timber and even luxurious metal finishes such as stainless steel, yellow and white golds.
