Purchase Guidelines for Mosaic Tiles

Mosaic tiles are little fragments of tile that are usually artistically arranged in a sheet. These tiny tiles, which are frequently used for backsplashes, accent walls, outdoor décor, and swimming pools, offer beautiful, detailed designs to any space. They are highly adaptable and may create a distinctive look in the living area because they are available in a variety of colours, sizes, and shapes. Here are a few tips to keep in mind when purchasing mosaic tiles. 

 

Choosing Colours​

The shade of the mosaic tiles should match the overall decor of the room. To make small spaces appear larger than they are or feel brighter, choose light and vibrant colours. When choosing the degree of reflectiveness of the mosaic tiles you want to have, consider the amount of natural light that the space receives. 

Creating a One-Of-A-Kind Look

The main purpose of mosaics is to improve the aesthetics of your living environment. When deciding on various textures and styles, be daring. To create a genuinely distinctive and stunning effect, try combining and matching them with the primary wall and floor tiles. 

Purchase Extra Tiles

Make sure you purchase at least 10% extra tiles than you really require to account for installation-related trimming and unintentional breakages. You may require up to 30% more tiles, depending on how detailed your tile-laying pattern is or how many multi-sized tiles are required to complete your layout design. 

Tile Adhesive and Grout

The tile adhesive and grout are two of the most crucial components of a tiling project. The tile grout is used to finish the look by filling in the spaces between the tiles after the adhesive has been used to attach the tiles to the wall or floor’s surface. To finalise the design of your space, discuss with your contractor the use of high-quality adhesives and the grout colours with your interior designer.
