I have been working on up-dating a laundry room and kitchen.  In this process we have to choose tile for the backsplash.  The hot new trend in tile is mosaic tile.  

Below are some interesting designs using mosaic tiles.


 Perk up a small bath by using it the tile extensively. 


Laundry rooms are a great place to try out a mosaic tile installation.  Notice the countertop was painted to match the backsplash in this fun laundry area.

Even in a monocromatic laundry room, the mosaic adds a touch of texture and interest.

This designer went all out in this colorful kitchen and what a statement!

Below is the laundry area I have been working on.  We installed a quartz countertop, Frosty Carrina by Caesarstone which has a Carrara marble look and used a mosaic tile that was a combination of Carrara and clear glass tiles.  The room was repainted in Benjamin Moore AC 22 Nantucket Fog, an interesting blue/gray.  Have to add a few finishing touches like a fun light fixture but check out the before picture below the after pic. 





Would you consider a mosaic tile in your next design project?
