Mosaic glass tiles take your project from boring to bold, with very little additional cost. When selecting the tile, examine the different materials and colors available so you can find the type that will work best in the room and with the design.
If you still need inspiration to narrow down your mosaic tile choices, consider the room and how you use it.
In the kitchen, mosaic tile is typically used in the backsplash. Ceramic, glass and porcelain are the best choices, because they easily wipe clean. They also won't absorb stains and odors. If you want stone, it's best to choose darker colors and mix them in with other mosaic materials so they won't show wear or stains.
Bathroom: Glass is a popular mosaic choice in the bathroom, because it reflects the light and can make the space look larger. Porcelain, ceramic and shell are other excellent choices. You can add a pop of color to a room that often tiled in neutral tones.
Floors: Floor mosaics are usually limited to border accents or small spaces, such as entryways, halls, or bathrooms. Durable tiles are necessary so they can withstand traffic and frequent cleaning. Ceramic and stone hold up well, but you can use glass if it's in an accent border where foot traffic isn't a concern.
Ceiling: Ceiling applications are becoming more popular. Metal tile, especially those with stamped designs, can give your ceiling a exquisite and unique appearance. Generally, larger tiles are used on the ceiling, but you can add in smaller mosaic tiles to create a decorative border.
