How To Install Mosaic Tile
Mosaics are used in a myriad of spaces to add life, vibrancy and color. Indoor uses of mosaic tile include their application to floors, walls and ceilings throughout a house, both as functional pieces and decorative items. When installing mosaics outdoors, they are most often used for beautiful and durable table tops, pathways and pools. These uses provide a unique feel and ambiance to a space, providing a touch of art, color and texture in a way that cannot be mirrored by any other art from. In addition, mosaics not only allow the customization of a space, it is also the most durable form of art there is.
Perfectly suited to almost any space in a home, the use of mosaics is often favored over that of paintings or images due to their durability and vibrancy. Historically 'wet' areas such as bathrooms and kitchens have always been a popular location for the use of mosaic tile as it can withstand humidity and moisture better than any other art form.
Installing Mosaic Tile
We recommend that all mosaics be installed by an experienced and professional tile setter to ensure that the finished product looks as good, and is as durable as possible. The surface upon which the mosaic tile is to be installed should be level, clean and free of any dirt, debris or grease. The right substrate should be used, especially for flooring installations and within 'wet' areas to ensure that the investment made in the mosaic is safeguarded from any structural issues or water damage; please note when using plywood substrate, it is also essential to use a bonding agent.
