20 Mosaic Backsplash Ideas for the Kitchen

 

Your kitchen is a busy place, and quite possibly, the most busy room in the house. So much happens in the kitchen, from preparing and eating meals, gathering around the table to visit with family and friends, perhaps this is where you sit to pay bills, do homework, crafts, and much more. But of course, preparing and eating meals is really the primary purpose of the kitchen, which means that you want your kitchen to function as best as it can when it comes to cooking. As important as it is to have a well-operating kitchen, you also want it to reflect your style and taste, and be a beautiful space that is warm and welcoming. One way you can accomplish this, is to use materials for your kitchen that serve both purposes. Tile is one material that has always worked to both, create a beautiful kitchen, as well as give you better function for cooking and preparing meals, easy cleaning and better maintenance. Tile is often used for flooring and backsplashes, in kitchens. Backsplashes protect the walls behind stoves and sinks, and you can create spectacular backsplashes with Mosaic designs to really make your kitchen pop. If you love the look of Mosaic tiles for a kitchen backsplash, here are some things you will want to consider, and do, in order to create the perfect mosaic tiled area in your kitchen.

How much surface?

First, you need to determine how much surface space will be covered in the mosaic tile. Will you just use the tile behind the stove? Or perhaps you want it to extend down the length of the counter, or even behind the kitchen sink, too. Deciding on where you want to tile is your first step.

What type of tile do you want?

There are multiple types of tiles to choose from. You can choose to create a mosaic design using ceramic, glass, granite, or stone. Keep in mind that your synthetic materials will be cheaper than the natural materials. Depending on how much space you plan to tile compared to what your budget is for the project, this may help you to decide what type of material you can afford.

Style and design

How mosaic you want to go is all up to your preference, style and taste. Mosaic backsplashes can be as subtle or as elaborate as you want them to be. There are so many colors, designs and shapes to the tiles that really, the choices and options are endless in what you can do. You can find patterns that you like by looking in stores, and online at different sites that give you mosaic backsplash tiling ideas. You do want to keep your design to fit with your style and design of your kitchen so that your décor theme flows flawlessly. Having one type of décor for your kitchen, from your cabinetry, to furniture, and a separate décor theme on your walls in your mosaic tile choice, can make your kitchen look and feel confusing, awkward and unappealing. Be creative, but consistent with your design theme.
