Denver Mosaic Tile Takes Bathroom Design From Dull to Dazzling


January 31, 2018

If you are looking to take the look of your home’s bathroom to the next level, you might want to consider mosaic tile. Tile is not only practical for bathrooms because it provides a waterproof barrier, but the beauty of mosaic tile is hard to deny. There are so many shapes, styles, sizes, and materials available, you are sure to find something that will suit your design style to a T.

Whether you are tiling the shower and tub area, or just looking to redo your bathroom floor, mosaic tile can turn your bathroom—regardless of size—into a showpiece.

If you are a do-it-yourselfer, the small space of a bathroom means the tiling project doesn’t have to be intimidating. It provides a great opportunity to practice your tiling skills!

Here are just a few ideas for using mosaic tile in your bathroom.

Design a Feature Wall

Mosaic tile can be used to create a feature wall in any room, even in a smaller space such as your bathroom. Choose colors for your tile based on the wall color to create a coordinated look. For something dramatic, use bolder colors. To create a spa-like feel, choose lighter tile; this can also help make a small bathroom appear to be more spacious.

Consider too how you lay the tile. A diagonal design can be stunning—and it can create the illusion of a bigger room. Using large-scale tiles in a small space such as a bathroom can also make the space seem bigger.

Accent the Shower and Tub Area

Current design trends often incorporate tile to add interest in the shower, such as creating an inset tiled shampoo shelf. Other ideas include adding tile around the shower or bathtub to enhance its look. Be sure to consider the texture of the tile you are using when using it as accent.

Create a Backsplash Above the Sink

Just like you might have in your kitchen, a backsplash above your bathroom sink or counter can provide the same kind of practical focal point. Since this is probably a smaller space, you can take the opportunity to get as creative as you’d like.

Update the Flooring

Tile is a best bet when it comes to bathroom flooring. If your bathroom has old tile, laminate, or carpeting, new flooring—especially tile in a mosaic pattern—will provide an instant update.

With so many varieties of tile available, including stone, porcelain, glass, and travertine, the looks you can create are limited only be your imagination. Whatever project you are working on for your bathroom, mosaic tile can turn your bathroom into a show-stopper.
