Mosaic wall tiles are ideal for creating statement splashbacks and feature walls in kitchens and bathrooms and are a popular way to add eyecatching pattern and colour to a room. Mosaic tiles come in a variety of shapes and sizes and look great when used as kitchen wall tiles or bathroom wall tiles. Mosaic floor tiles are those that can be used as wetroom floor tiles due to the anti slip properties provided by the mosaic’s additional grout lines, throughout our collections you will find a coordinating mosaic specifically for this purpose.
A tessera is a small individual piece of material used to create a mosaic pattern. Tesserae can be random or uniform shapes and in the tile world can be made from glass, stone, metal and ceramic.
The term mosaic means ‘decoration of surface’ and a mosaic tile refers to tiles that are made up of small individual pieces of material arranged in a uniform or random pattern and fixed to a mesh sheet to enable easy installation.
A tile is a single piece of material made from ceramic, porcelain or natural stone, whereas a mosaic tile consists of lots of individual pieces of the same or different shaped material such as glass, metal, stone and ceramic, fixed in a pattern to a mesh sheet. Glass mosaic wall tiles are a popular choice of mosaic tile and can contain gloss or opaque glass pieces in colourful or neutral designs. As mentioned, our mosaics are provided on a mesh so you don’t need to lay out each tiny piece out when fitting, giving a beautifully even finished result!
