A mosaic is a piece of art or image made from the assembling of small pieces of colored glass, stone, or other materials. It is often used in decorative art or as interior decoration. Most mosaics are made of small, flat, roughly square pieces of stone or glass of different colors, known as tesserae. Some, especially floor mosaics, are made of small rounded pieces of stone, and called “pebble mosaics”. Mosaic is an ancient art form dating back centuries, and it remains popular in home design today.
In the tile world, a mosaic is defined as an inlay design pattern with tiles smaller than 2×2”. Individual mosaic patterns vary greatly, featuring a multitude of different materials, colors, and tile shapes. Popular materials include glass, natural stone, metal and porcelain. Available shapes and styles include square, penny round, arabesque, mini brick, basketweave, hexagon, chevron, herringbone, and more. Each combination of materials and shapes can make a stylish, intricate statement in areas such as backsplashes, bathroom walls, shower and tub surrounds, fireplaces, and even floors. Whether you want to add a modern touch to your kitchen or bring timeless charm into your bathroom, mosaic tile is a beautiful way to do so.
