5 Ways to Use Mosaic Tiles

2021 09 22

Mosaic tiles come in a range of colours, shapes, sizes, and textures, and can be used in in many areas of your home. They serve both functional and decorative purposes and can be arranged in plenty of patterns and designs. If you’re looking to incorporate mosaic tiles into your home but aren’t sure how, here are five ways to use them.


The small size of mosaic tiles allows them to be arranged to create beautiful images throughout the home. The different shapes, colours, and textures can turn a regular wall into a work of art.


Mosaic tiles are a classic choice for backsplashes, and are great for adding visual accents to your kitchen with bold colours or patterns. They are also one of the most DIY-friendly tiles, due to their small size and easy installation, so many people choose to install mosaic backsplash tiles themselves.

Feature Walls

Similar to a painted accent wall, you can create a unique feature wall using mosaic tiles. Mosaic tiles can be used to add a contrasting colour or texture to break up an otherwise neutral room, strategically drawing the eye to the feature wall.


Although mosaic tiles are used less often for flooring, they are typically present in showers and other small areas. Their small format makes them more slip-resistant, which is good for areas that are exposed to a lot of water and humidity. However, they may not be the best for high-traffic areas, as they tend to get damaged more easily.


Mosaic tiles can be used outside of the home, too. When used in swimming pools, they add a sense of luxury due to their unique patterns and iridescent style. They won’t puncture or tear like vinyl liners, and also increase traction within and surrounding the pool.
