​Where to Use Denver Mosaic Tiles in Your Home


November 16, 2016

Want to add a unique, personal touch to different rooms in your home? One of the best ways to do so is to add Denver mosaic tiles. These versatile tiles can be glass, travertine, porcelain or stone, so there are endless possibilities to use them to update the look of your home. Here are just a few ideas:

Pools

Create a calm and relaxing atmosphere around your pool by using Denver mosaic tiles on the pool lining. It’s recommended that you use glass tiles around your pool, since these will sparkle and shine when the sun is out. Use different shades of blue tiles to enhance the appearance of the water and make your pool look like it belongs in a high-end resort, not your backyard.

Backsplashes

Every kitchen could benefit from a Denver mosaic tile backsplash, especially those that need a burst of color. These backsplashes add texture and character to the kitchen, but even if you don’t want to commit to a backsplash made entirely from Denver mosaic tiles, you can use this material to create a border around your backsplash instead. Homeowners can flex their creative muscle and design a beautiful, customized backsplash that every neighbor on the block will envy.

Showers

Create a natural, peaceful vibe in your shower with use the Denver mosaic tiles on the shower walls and floors. Pick one family of colors, such as browns, greens, blues or grays, and then select different shades within this family to use in your design. Some homeowners prefer to only use the tiles on the shower wall, but if you want a really luxurious look, use the tiles on the floor, too. Using mosaic tiles in the shower can give the entire room a more spa-like feel.

Free Standing Tubs

If you have an elegant free standing tub in your bathroom, create the illusion of a rug underneath it by placing Denver mosaic tiles around it in a rectangular shape. This makes your tub the centerpiece of the room, so all eyes will immediately be drawn to it.

Walls

Homeowners who like to create trends instead of follow them have started to use mosaic tiles as if they were wallpaper. These edgy customers create an intricate design with mosaic tiles and then cover an entire accent wall with them to create a textured, beautiful addition to their homes. Mosaic tiles are actually a smarter choice than wallpaper for the bathroom, since humidity can destroy wallpaper, but does not have an effect on tile. Plus, tiles are much easier to clean than wallpaper, so if you happen to splash water or soap on the wall, you don’t have to worry about making any expensive repairs if you have tile.

Tabletops

Adding glass mosaic tile to a tabletop or countertop can create a beautiful focal point for a room. Whether you are refinishing a dining room table or building a custom kitchen island, glass tile provides a reliable and unique finishing option.

 

Borders
