Mosaic backsplashes can take many different forms. So whether your kitchen has a traditional, modern, rustic or contemporary, there will always be numerous attractive designs to take into consideration.
Mosaic backsplashes don’t always feature well-defined patterns. Some rely on the overall texture and finish such as in the case of this glamorous kitchen where the backsplash extends to cover a larger portion of the wall.
Any kind of backsplash can look good if you know how to install it. For example, this glass tile mosaic has a random pattern and the tiles interlock like pieces of a puzzle. In a way, this makes it easy to get an overall cohesive look. So here’s how you install them. First mix up the mortar. Apply it with a trowel and gradually press the tiles in. keep going one row at a time. Mosaic tiles are one of the easiest to install because they’re small in height and because of the random pattern.
The design can be abstract or it can depict something very specific. In fact, there are lots of themed designs you can explore and adapt when designing your kitchen, in case you want to include a mosaic backsplash.
The kitchen doesn’t have to be your favorite room in the house for you to want it to look pretty and inviting. Even though this is mainly a utilitarian, there are plenty of ways in which you can give it a welcoming and beautiful look. One perfectly acceptable example is the backsplash. A mosaic kitchen backsplash, for example, will always stand out.
Tired of the same old tiled backsplashes? Try something different like a herringbone shim backsplash. Cut the shims to size and then create the middle section starting at the center line. Glue down the section and let it sit for several hours. Then, once you apply it onto the wall, you can start adding all the filler pieces. It’s important to measure correctly.
