Mosaic Tile

Mosaic Tile – How To Create Mosaic Tile Patterns

Does creating a work of art sound like something that should be left to seasoned professionals? When it comes to creating mosaic tile patterns for your home, it need not be. You can create simple designs containing chevrons, arrows, squares, or diamonds, or you can use individual tiles and go for a more specific design such as a snowflake or a nautilus. You can be as intricate as you like. In fact, the shapes, sizes, and colors are limited only by your imagination. But if you have never created a pattern with mosaic tiles before, where should you start?

Mosaic Tile Patterns Starts In The Mind

What do you plan to do with your mosaic tiles? A mosaic tile pattern could cover an entire floor, or simply be a border around a room. It can even be designed in place of an area rug or carpet. Before you dive in and start tiling, however, grab your mosaic tiles and come up with a design first. For a dramatic effect, you may decide to create a mosaic tile pattern in the center of the floor. This works equally well in both large and small rooms. To get concrete design idea you might even take a lesson from some homeowners who feel that sketching around tiles helps them decide how big they would like the pattern to be.

What About The Colors For A Mosaic Tile Pattern?

The varieties of mosaic tile colors are virtually endless. Choose the colors that you like and perhaps that suit the mood of the room you are going to tile. For example, if you plan to use the room to entertain guests, you may want to choose vibrant colors. On the other hand, if it is room you will use to relax, perhaps with a good novel, you may decide to choose more subdued colors. You might also consider the style you prefer. Do you want a more modern feel? Or are you partial to Victorian design? Get the colors you want together, and then play around with various patterns and styles. Before you know it, you will have created your own work of art.

    Hi ,

    We have found a 450 by 450 tile we like that we want to cut and make into mosaics.

    We have found plenty of companies who will cut the tile however none of them will put onto mesh for the tiler

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi Danny,

      while cutting a tile is easy, getting them onto mesh requires a little creativity. I would suggest searching for a mosaic specialist or hobbyist in your area or join a mosaic forum for some handy D.I.Y tips.

      Hope this helps.

      TFO Team.
