With so many different types of mosaic tiles to choose from, you could replicate any design already out there and still make it original by using different types of tiles. Designs become limitless with different types of materials, sizes, and manufacturing techniques when creating tiles.Mosaic Tiles Cape Town
While the uniqueness of tile design is its strength, it doesn’t mean you have to come up with original ideas when there are so many types of tiles to make any design unique and beautiful. Let us show you the breadth and depth of at five different types of tiles that can create visually stunning designs or ancient artwork to make them truly your own designs.
1. Stone Mosaics
When people think about mosaics, they tend to imagine those beautiful, timeless, Roman and Greek floors with tiny bits of inlaid stone that create huge pictures when completed.
To be certain, the grace and hypnotic allure of tiny stone mosaics is still an excellent choice and you can still get fantastic mosaic flower patterns and colorful geometric designs done in stone mosaics today.
2. Glass Mosaics
Glass mosaics can come in transparent, opaque, and mirrored tile pieces. They help bounce light around in a room and have a glowing effect, in some cases. Mirrored glass mosaics have a shimmery effect that instantly vitalizes a space and makes it feel special. Incoming sunlight or lamplight can create shadows and light effects that make it seem like the tile pieces are dancing in the light.
3. Medallions and Murals
Getting past the tiny bits of stone, different manufacturing techniques, like water-jet technology, allow stonemasons to cut stone into swirling curves and delicately thin pieces that would have been difficult, if not impossible, in the past to do. This enhancement in manufacturing techniques can create medallions and murals that are single cut large pieces without needing tiny bits and pieces to create flowing curves.
4. Stone Tile
Manufacturing techniques and styles are just one of the ways to create different types of mosaic tiles. However, when you vary the size from tiny bits and pieces to large squares or octagons and other geometric shapes, you have a whole new way to make designs unique and breathtaking.
Which One Is Right For You?
Now, the big questions are, once faced with all these wonderful choices, which is the right one for you?
To make that choice, you may need help from a design consultant, or you can go it alone. You can get a good idea of the colours and materials you prefer for your design by viewing other designs, like the ones we’ve listed. Depending on the final look-and-feel, you might choose one manufacturing method or material over another.
