Getting Creative With Mosaic Tiles

Have you ever considered adding mosaic tiles to your home but have been put off thinking that they’re too much messing around and just far too expensive for your budget? Well …it’s time to think again. Mosaic tiles at Tiles4Alll are very reasonably priced and are incredibly easy to install. They have advantages over other types of tiles and they are easier to fit around fixtures and fittings as you can just trim off some of the small tiles rather than cutting porcelain tiles down to size. Mosaic tiles are usually supplied in sheets with several tiles attached to a fabric backing, this backing can be easily cut with a pair of scissors and because they are already attached into place you don’t have to worry about positioning your tiles into place.

Mosaic tiles can also look fabulous and they are far more interesting and attractive to look at. They’re also available in an array of colours and textures and are the perfect way to liven up any area of your home. Glass tiles can make a room feel larger and adding a border with contrasting colours will create something that will reflect your personality.

The great thing about mosaic tiles is that they work well in any size bathroom because they are so versatile. If you’d like any more information on how mosaic tiles can transform your bathroom visit the Tiles4All website today – http://www.tiles4all.co.uk/Mosaics.html

Advantages of Mosaic Glass Tiles

Probably the biggest benefit of using mosaic glass in flooring is the beauty that will be achieved with its installation. You can usually choose between solid and multicoloured tiles, which can either be arranged in a simple way or in an intricate pattern.

The great thing about glass tiles is that they are resistant to stains mould and mildew but they show dirt quite easily so you will always know when it’s time to clean them. Glass tiles are resistant to chemicals and aren’t porous, this means that you won’t have to worry about and dirt sinking into the tile. They are incredibly easy to clean because they can be simple wiped down with a cloth or mopped with water.

It takes around half the energy to produce a glass tile than it does to make a ceramic tile of the exact same size.

Mosaic glass tiles will reflect light rather than absorb it. This means that each individual mosaic piece will glow radiantly unlike any other floor material.

You Too Can Create Your Own Kitchen Mosaic Backsplash

“I decided to carry out my own DIY tiling project as I was so bored with my old kitchen, I felt like it was extremely dated and was quite embarrassed when friends and family dropped in for a coffee, I went out of my way to avoid the kitchen at all cost. I felt like this negativity had a knock on effect on how I felt about the rest of my home, and I was beginning to dislike coming home, I knew that I needed to do something about it.

My idea of my perfect kitchen would be one that would reflect my own fun and bubbly personality, as I’d never experienced any sort of DIY project before I turned to the web for inspiration. I came across Tiles4All and was immediately impressed with their varied range of mosaic tiles. There was so much variety to choose from and Tiles4All had a fantastic range of colours and styles that would give my kitchen that extra sparkle.

Carrying out my own tiling project allowed me to really put my own personal touch on my kitchen, I was expecting this to be a really challenging project, but because the mosaic tiles came in sheets they we’re really simple to install.

With a little time and patience I managed to create a beautiful mosaic backsplash that I was really proud of. Making this small change really made a huge difference in my home. I can’t wait to show my family and neighbours what I’ve created; hopefully they’ll feel just as inspired as I did to create their own mosaic masterpiece.”

A Brief Guide on Fitting Mosaic Tiles

Tiling with mosaic tiles is in many ways no different to tiling with standard tiles. You’d still measure out and prepare in exactly the same way and you would treat each panel like a normal tile using spaces between the panels rather that the individual tiles.

It’s important that you use the correct adhesive, and you need to apply it to the wall with a notched trowel. You can then stick the panel to the wall applying firm and even pressure across the whole panel to make sure it’s firmly fixed. The panels can be moved around but it’s important to not overwork them as you can damage the backing.

Cutting the tiles couldn’t be easier, simply use a pair of scissors or a craft knife and cut between the rows of tile. Once the adhesive is dry you’re ready to grout (it’s always better to check adhesive drying time before grouting) You should apply the grout in the same way as standard tiles holding the float at a 45° angle and working the grout into the gaps, then remove the excess with a damp sponge, take care at this stage not to remove grout from the gaps and be as neat as possible as it won’t be practical to shape the grot between the vast number of individual tiles. Leave the grout to dry for a couple of hours and then wipe off any remaining grout with a dry cloth.
