Homeowners in the Boca Raton, Highland Beach, Parkland, Coral Springs and Lighthouse Point area love mosaic tiles for how they bring a “WOW” factor to any space. At Floor Coverings International® of Boca Raton, we believe that adding mosaic tile to a room is like adding a piece of art.
History of Mosaic Tiles
Mosaic art dates back thousands of years and can still be found in many historic monuments across the world. The famous ceilings of the St. Mark’s Basilica were done in mosaic and are one of the countless examples of how mosaic tiles have withstood the test of time in their beauty and durability. By definition, a mosaic is any pattern produced from smaller materials. Historically, those small materials were stones and pebbles. Now, mosaic tiles come in a wide variety of shapes, colors, and materials.
The variation on mosaic tiles is endless. You can go with glass or metallic, round or square, all the same colors or an array of colors, uniform sizes or all different sizes. Mosaic tiles are most commonly used in bathrooms and backsplashes, but why not consider mosaic tiles for an accent wall or an entryway floor? No matter what your tastes are, there is a unique mosaic tile design that fits you and your home.
Depending on the material you choose, mosaic tiles can be extremely durable. In most cases, mosaic tiles are seen on backsplashes or walls and undergo limited wear and tear where more delicate materials can be used. Glass mosaic tiles are impervious to water and do a great job at resisting mold and mildew– great for kitchens and bathrooms! Glass mosaic tiles are also easy to clean and usually only require a wipe down with a wet cloth to get them looking good as new. For more durable floor mosaics, you can find beautiful ceramic and stone mosaics that are just as easy to maintain and look amazing.
