An ancient art form devised by the Romans using hundreds of small pieces of coloured stone, ceramic, or glass to create intricate patterns or pictures, mosaics have helped define and enrich architectural spaces for countless centuries.
Today, modern bathroom tiles incorporate mosaics to instantly distinguish or personalise a particular feature of interest in the home. Whether it’s a shower wall, the floor that surrounds a freestanding bath or the splashback of a bathroom vanity, there are endless creative ways to add distinction to your bathroom with mosaics. Let’s look at some of the intriguing ways you could imaginatively incorporate mosaic bathroom tiles to add personality and brilliantly heighten the aesthetics of your space.
MOSAIC TILES FOR WALLS
Sometimes a plain wall doesn’t cut it creatively. One way to add great depth of character to your bathroom space is to use mosaic bathroom tiles to emphasise or draw attention to a particular corner or feature of interest. Another way is to make an entire wall a bathroom feature by giving it colour and texture through mosaics.
Why not consider choosing some elaborate modern bathroom tile designs to complement your space in this way? Choose from our unique Calacatta Tic Tac Mosaic.
MOSAIC BATHROOM TILE COLOURS
With a bit of imagination with mosaics, your bathroom could come into its own and make an eye-catching impression. The styling possibilities are endless. However, it all starts with selecting the right colours to evoke some life into your space. While light grey modern bathroom tiles work wonders, sometimes being more daring with the colour palate can produce extraordinary results.
Our beautifully divergent Calacatta Verde Square Mosaics will undoubtedly add some drama with its edgy extravagance. Made from natural Calacatta Verde marble, its thought-provoking colour, pattern, texture and stunning veining irregularities will instantly personalise a space. In terms of pioneering heritage, impressive durability and stunning beauty, there is little wonder why Italian marble is considered the finest marble in the world.
CREATIVE FREEDOM WITH YOUR BATHROOM MOSAIC TILE IDEAS
Throwing caution to the wind by tapping into your creative side with your modern bathroom tile designs can result in something altogether more original and distinctive. Is there a particular off-the-wall pattern that is appealing to you? People have experimented with everything from elaborate elongated bubble designs that randomly scale the walls to transforming their bathrooms with scenic backdrops or into an aquatic-themed paradise. This creative freedom is one of the liberating qualities of mosaics.
You could also consider highlighting an interesting bathroom feature like a recessed wall niche with either colourful, grey mosaic bathroom tiles or modern subway tile bathroom designs to make an intriguing point of difference. Why not extend a mosaic vanity backsplash so that it becomes a continuous theme that borders your entire bathroom or create a unique mosaic mural that personalises your space to instant eye-catching effect?
MOSAIC BATHROOM FLOOR TILES
Mosaics in bathrooms can descend to the floor tiles, too, creating stunning texture and durability. As a result, mosaic bathroom floors can prove a persuasive interior design feature. Not only do they evoke an extra level of decorative beauty into your space, but they are persuasively easy to keep clean due to not containing the usual nooks and crannies where grime can build up.
If you have a smaller bathroom, you can make the most of your limited space with light coloured mosaics but try and avoid colourful ones as it could work against you.
MOSAIC SHOWER TILES
If you are trying to evoke further power into your shower, look no further than mosaics as a creative approach to modern bathroom tiles. You could even consider coating the entire shower cubicle with mosaics to broaden its aesthetic potential.
Our Carrara Marble Square Mosaics transform spaces with their naturalistic composition and can characterise an area with some beautiful inconsistency. So too does the Carrara Marble Kit Kat Mosaic, which executes a superb bathroom facelift by creating intriguing focal points of interest.
