Express your personality with a dazzling array of mosaic tiles. Mosaic tiles have been loved by people around the world for centuries to decorate churches, palaces and public buildings. Colourful displays of mosaics have also been used in private homes to decorate and jazz up bathrooms, kitchens and feature walls.
The possibility is virtually unlimited. So many types of materials are used to create beautiful mosaic. The materials used include coloured glass, stainless steel, porcelain and a variety of natural stone pieces such as marble and travertine. Shapes and lengths of pieces also widely vary giving unique character to each combination.
TFO stocks one of the biggest ranges of mosaic tiles in Sydney. They are carefully chosen from thousands of variations available. Where suitable combinations are not found, we have gone out of our way to create just what Sydneysiders are looking for. Unlike other stores, our stocks are available on site, so that you can purchase and pick them up straight away.
Mosaic tiles for bathrooms
A bathroom is one of the most common areas where mosaics are used to add that special touch. Mosaic tiles can add beautiful character to an otherwise bland room. Some choose to turn one whole wall into a feature with an entire wall of mosaics to add a striking definition to the room while others use a vertical or horizontal strip of mosaics to add spice to the room. The colour of the mosaics should complement the colours used on the floor or wall tiles.
Mosaic tiles for a Kitchen Splashback
Kitchen splashbacks are another popular way to use mosaic tiles in the home. With hundreds of mosaics to choose from, you are sure to find just the right mosaics for your kitchen splashback. By using well-chosen mosaic tiles for your kitchen splashback, you can turn it into a feature wall, the centre of attention in the whole area. If you want to add a classic warm feel, choose natural stones such as travertine and marble. On the other hand, if you want to make it contemporary, make use of mosaics featuring stainless steel or coloured glass pieces.
Installation of mosaic tiles is relatively easy, so it can be your next DIY project. For an easy and quick installation however, we recommend Davco Glass Mosaic additive. The additive can turn the grout into glue, so instead of 2 processes (installing and grouting), you can do it all in one single process!
Maintenance and care
Most mosaic tiles are made of durable materials. However, when they are used in wet areas such as a bathroom or kitchen where they are exposed to elements, it’s worth the extra mile to protect them. One of the best ways is to seal the grout. Sealing the grout can make grout joints resistant to water damage and discolouring. If the mosaics are made of natural stones, its particularly important to seal them too.
