There are so many beautiful tiles out there and a bathroom is a perfect place to show off some of your personality and take a risk with a fun color or pattern on your tiles. However, if you are going to go for it, keep it to one show stopper. This will make your look timeless and really create the wow factor that you are going for since it won’t be competing with the other elements in the room.
Mosaic designs have long been a staple of the decorative arts, and as an art form, they are held in high regard. Mosaics are made of small, usually square pieces of glass, stone, shells or other material that are placed in such a way as to create and pattern or a picture. Dating back to Roman times and before, mosaics have been used the world over to cover everything from walls to ceilings and floors. This time-honored decorative technique is still widely used today, and mosaic bathroom floors are particularly popular. When it comes to design and pattern, the sky really is the limit and a true artist can create any picture with the use of small mosaic tiles.
Ceramic tile floors are designed with more texture than ceramic wall tile to prevent slippage. Honed natural stone will also provide traction when floors get wet—that’s when the surface is ground flat but not polished. Natural stone also can be sandblasted.
Mosaic bathroom floors come in all styles, from traditional to pop art. One of the most popular design motifs, the Greek key, is easily created using black and white marble mosaic tiles. A cost-effective way of getting this style is to lay down larger tiles in the center of the floor and create a border of the small mosaics in the pattern of your choice around the periphery. Pre-made sheets of mosaic tile are available for easy installation; they can make mosaic bathroom floors a relatively easy DIY project. Similar to a border, one can also install a mosaic “rug” in the center of the floor, with larger, simpler tiles around the periphery. More complicated patterns, such as interlocking ovals and scrolls, are significantly more difficult to create and are therefore higher in price. However, nothing says high-end traditional elegance like mosaic bathroom floors with a traditional pattern made from beautiful stones and colors.
