The majority of mosaic tiles are easy to clean and not as delicate as some natural stone finishes. This makes them great to use for flooring or for things like kitchen backsplashes and counter surfaces where they may be subjected to cooking grease splashes or food stains.
Range of materials
Mosaic tiles are available in a whole range of materials from glass to metallics, matte to iridescent finished for an almost unlimited choice of style to suit any room. From bold to subtle, geometric patterns to plain, there is something to suit every taste.
Non-slip to shiny
Depending on where you are placing your mosaic tiles you may require a finish that is high shine, light-reflective, or a dull matte non-slip surface. Stone finished are popular in bathrooms and kitchens to provide grip on wet floor areas and reduce the chance of slipping.
Choice of sizes
For a bold dramatic statement, or a soft pattern several tile finishes and materials may be used, but depending on the space you are working with the size of the tile may be a consideration. Mosaic tiles come in many sizes to suit the individual need.
