Nothing can jazz up a room more than a bit of color and sparkle. But when you think color and sparkle, do you automatically think tile? Probably not.
Mosaic tile has been around for centuries, standing the test of time in design.

Today, the options not only run the gamut of color choices, we also have the choice of the types of tile that go into the mosaics and the shapes of the tile as well.

The great thing about mosaics, for you DIY’ers, is the ease of installation. No difficult cutting implements needed for fitting the tile to your space. It also offers an amazing array of design options allowing your mosaic to be as individual as you are.

Best of Both Worlds – Natural Stone and Glass Tile Mosaics

For a truly classic option, nothing beats stone. Our Torreon mosaic is made of travertine which has natural pits and cavities on its surface while Golden Gate is made of quartzite which comes from soapstone. This one lacks the iron content that causes some natural stone to take on a rusty patina.

For a more modern look, nothing beats glass tile. Our Skylights Collection is a complete line of tile that comes in many color and size options for any décor need. The wonderful thing about the glass mosaics is the variety of places they can be used. You can use glass mosaics on floors, walls, countertops and backsplashes, even fireplaces and swimming pools. Talk about versatility that adds a real wow factor!

For those of you who can’t decide between the look of natural stone mosaics or glass mosaics, we have something really unique. Our Soh Stack combines natural stone with contemporary glass. The glass is hand painted on one side using pigments and then kiln fired for durability and fade resistance.

The combination of glass and stone in this mosaic is cut in long, staggered rectangles to make a statement in any room.

If you like the looks of these new tiles, don’t worry about them being too trendy. Mosaics are a classic design choice for any modern home!
