How to Mix and Match Mosaic and Tiles

One of the most effective ways to transform your plain, boring looking home into an impressive, stylish one is through the use of tiles!

Whether it’s for your kitchen, living room or bathroom, tiles can provide the “wow” factor to every home. One popular trend for interior designers today is mixing and matching mosaics with classic tiles. Mosaics, often made by combining various materials from glass, ceramic, natural stone, etc., works great in highlighting and making an area of your home stand out.

Here are some tips from our experts at Tile Express on how you can mix and match mosaic and classic tiles for your home:

Balance busy patterns with plain tiles

One common design mistake when using mosaics, is overdoing it. As it is with all forms of art, there should be balance in installing tiles for your home. Contain the use of patterned mosaics into one surface (either a portion of your floor or an accent wall) and pair it with plain tiles to make it pop out.

Make mosaics standout with neutral colored tiles

For an elegant and classy look, make your mosaics the focal point by matching it with neutral colored tiles. The last thing that you want to happen is to overshadow your mosaics with bright, loud colored tiles.

Combine matte and glossy tiles

Monochromatic colors make the room look elegant and cohesive. But, doing it incorrectly may result in your place looking flat and unappealing. To make a contrasting effect without breaking up your color scheme, you can use matte tiles together with your polished mosaics. This will make your mosaics appear tactile and more visually interesting.
