Mosaic tiles have traditionally been defined as any tiles having a facial area of less than nine square inches. For a square tile, this is equivalent to no larger than 3 x 3 inches, but since mosaic tiles can be any shape, the facial dimension is recognized. However, mosaic tiles are now becoming known not only for their size, but for the creativity inherent in their combination of tile colors, shapes, and textures.

We’re also seeing tile mosaics in a wider range of applications. Once relegated to backsplashes and murals, mosaic tiles are now often used for entire feature walls, flooring, and more.

As with larger ceramic tiles, mosaic tiles are resistant to water, scratches, stains, fading, bacteria, and fire.

Mosaic tiles can make a big style impact in any space. Get ideas for your project by exploring our mosaic tile examples below, and then find more inspiration on our Pinterest board.
