Using Mosaic Floor Tiles To Add Modern Sytle To Your Bathroom

Posted by Daltile Team on Jun 21, 2017 10:30:00 AM

Modern mosaic floor tiles can revitalize your bathroom floor. Traditionally, mosaic designs are made using small tiles that are three inches or less. If you like the look of mosaics, updated shapes and on-trend neutrals allow you to aim for a more modern style. Today's latest lines of tile provide a great deal of design flexibility, giving you the opportunity to create something truly fresh and original. Here are some suggestions for a newer mosaic tile design for your bathroom floor.

Layer Neutrals for a Modern Look

Although traditional mosaic patterns consist of a variety of vibrant colors, using a range of neutral tiles can create a more modern, harmonious appearance—especially in smaller bathrooms. Going with more than one shade of tile can also help you avoid ending up with a design that feels too plain or stark. If you're looking to update your bathroom floor, check out the Keystones line. This tile line's neutral blends can bring a fresh look to your bathroom. With a range of color options, including shades of gray, beige, muted blue, and green, you have the opportunity to choose a neutral color scheme that will work best for your space.

Add Subtle Shimmer

For a mosaic look that has a glamorous touch, try adding a hint of shimmer. For instance, the P'Zazz line of mosaics offers two blends—one in a cool color scheme and one in a warm color scheme—that are suitable for flooring. The tile comes in modern hues with a subtle sheen, which allows you to achieve a glamorous, spa-worthy look in your bathroom that stuns but doesn't overwhelm.

Go Retro

If you prefer the intricate look of smaller mosaics, but have a more retro style, there are plenty of tile options out there for your design. For instance, for a black-and-white floor, consider going with the Octagon & Dot line.

Flex Your Design Muscles with the Many Possibilities

The coordinating colors, shapes, and sizes within different tile lines give you the freedom to create a mosaic floor that's totally original. Now you can go with multiple shades or sizes to really create a one-of-a-kind bathroom floor. Complement your bathroom decor with the sparkle, brightness, and range of colors available in the Keystones line, for instance, and you'll end up with a design that draws attention without overshadowing the minimalist design.

The artistry of mosaic floor tiles has made them popular among homeowners who are seeking unique floor patterns for their bathrooms. When you're ready to update your floor, check out the newest tile designs at a Daltile showroom near you.
