Mosaic Tiles: 6 Best Options for your new Bathroom Floor or Wall

Mosaic tiles offer an incredibly vast range of creative options for your bathroom walls and floors making them one of the most varied and versatile design solutions. These miniature tiles are available in many different materials, formats, shapes and styles offering you a world of creativity as you put together that perfect design scheme in your next bathroom design and renovation project. 

1. Penny Round Tiles

Penny round tiles create a wonderfully tactile surface finish in the bathroom while also adding a sense of pattern in the space. Given the right material choice, these timeless mosaic tiles can be used to create a spectacular feature floor or wall in the bathroom that can easily be complemented with a range of different tile shapes to achieve that perfect balance. 

It is always wise to double check how your selected mosaic tiles can be used in the bathroom; Natural stone penny round tiles for example can often be used as either a floor or wall finish, allowing for more flexibility in your design options. Other tile materials such as metal or ceramic for example are most often best suited to vertical applications only as these materials can wear much quicker as a floor finish while also not providing adequate resistance against slipping. This means that you will find more decorative options available in your choice of wall tiles as the restrictions of manufacturing a floor tile are not a concern. 

Combining varying shades of green, the Ming Marble collection layers cool white tones with emeralds, mint and forest greens to create a luscious natural stone feature. Green tiles offer a timeless and unique style element in any bathroom design, instantly creating a sense of tranquillity in the space.

3. Glass Mosaic Floor Tiles

A non-porous and easily maintained material, glass provides a sleek and smooth surface underfoot. Glass mosaic tiles that can be used as a floor finish are normally created using thin pieces of glass layered over each other to create an incredibly strong and hard wearing surface finish. Contrary to popular belief, grout between glass mosaic floor tiles is not an issue to maintain provided the right type of grout has been used in your new bathroom. A quality epoxy grout is often paired with glass mosaic floor tiles as it too is non-porous and resistant staining and water, making it the perfect solution.

4. Shapes and Patterns

Pattern tiles add a dramatic touch to your bathroom’s interior while also allowing you to get creative with your choice of colour, pattern or shape. Mosaic tiles offer the perfect solution for creating patterns, shapes and textures in your bathroom design scheme as their smaller size and format allow for more creative applications. Patterns in tiles can be created using intricate designs that are printed or painted directly onto the tile’s surface or in the case of mosaic tiles specifically, using a range of interlocking shapes to create an intricate design that can be highlighted with your choice of grout colour.
