What is a mosaic anyway?

A mosaic is a picture or pattern produced by arranging together small pieces of hard material, such as stone, tile or glass.  Mosaics have been used throughout the centuries to decorate floors, walls, and monuments.  Today we use mosaics in many of those same applications with some of the most common being a kitchen backplash, a feature wall in a shower or bathroom, to cover a tabletop, or as an inset in a floor to create a montage rug effect.

Mosaics can be made out of a number of different materials.  Stone, stone mixed with glass, glass mixed with mirror, metal mixed with stone or glass…and the list goes on and the possibilities are virtually endless.  It’s really fun to play with mosaics within a design in almost any project.  The sky is the limit!

Here at Anaheim Hills Tile, we carry a wide selection of many styles of mosaics.  There are so many choices, it blows one’s mind!  In addition to the thousands of choices you can see in our showroom, we can also do just about any custom work you can think of including using a water jet machine to cut any shape or logo you want into your own unique mosaic. We pride ourselves on helping our clients negotiate this fun and creative design element, and we look forward to helping you choose the decorative mosaic that suits your project just right!
