What makes mosaic tiles so popular
Some tiles go in and out of fashion. Not mosaics. They transcend fashion. While they date back a long, long time, such is their versatility, they remain as relevant today as they ever were.
Why? Mosaics have the potential to bring colour, texture and personality to any room and any surface, as well as any style, in your home.
The history of mosaics
Mosaics have been around since the height of the Roman Empire. The Romans used mosaics as way of demonstrating their wealth as well as sophistication. And while mosaics are thankfully no longer the preserve of just the wealthy, their association with sophistication remains to this day.
Mosaics might have been with us for a few years, but this isn’t to say they can’t add a contemporary vibe to a home. The Ayan White Mosaic Mix, with its neutral, rectangular shape and glossy finish, is perfect for helping to create a cost-effective minimalist living space with the clean, sharp, crisp line of these tiles.
One of the other benefits of mosaic tiles is that they are highly reflective thanks to them being made from glass. Used effectively on walls, mosaics can make a room seem a lot brighter and a lot bigger than it is. A great example of this is the visually stunning Fusion White Mix Mosaic. This particular pattern cleverly combines glossy, matt, polished glass and marble tiles to create a shimmering, lunar-like appearance.
Mosaics are equally good at adding a riot of colour to popular rooms such as bathrooms and kitchens. The Hong Kong Square Mix Mosaic is a perfect example of this, with its gold, silver, grey and red hues creating a real visual spectacle that you will never tire of enjoying every time you walk into the room.
Plus, like all our curated mosaic tiles, the Hong Kong Square Mix mosaic tile is very easy to clean. Thanks to their smooth, glossy surface it is difficult for dirt to become encased in them while glass is very resistant to mould and mildew. Nor does it stain easily. All you need to do to keep mosaic tiles clean is wipe them down regularly with warm soapy water.
