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.
The downside to laminate is that it cannot be refinished. Once it’s damaged, it needs to be replaced. In addition, the floor might look like wood but it won’t feel like it. When you walk on a laminate floor, it produces sound that makes the material feel fake and manufactured. It’s also a very hard material that doesn’t give.
Stone tile floors is a distinct and unique look. The most common types of stone that homeowners use are: slate, flagstone (sandstone), marble, granite, travertine and limestone. Stone tile looks fancy and is highly admired by many homeowners. It’s a timeless and durable substance that can be polished if scratched.
Stone tiles were once confined to the foyer. In the past decade, however, they have become popular in other rooms as well, bathroom included. Made from limestone, marble, granite and slate, stone tiles are available in colors that range from creams to blues, reds, greens and golds. Available textures are nearly as numerous and include cleft, tumbled, sandblasted, etched and flamed variations. Stone requires more maintenance than ceramic tile; regular cleaning and sealing are recommended. Plus, stone is typically more expensive than similar-looking ceramic or porcelain tiles.
