Why Choose a Glass Mosaic?

Glass Mosaics last a long time and are easy to maintain due to their smooth non-porous surface, glass mosaic tiles are easy to maintain. They do not stain and any dirt or greasy spots can be quickly wiped with a wet cloth. The glass is also strong and resistant to most chemicals, making the tiles highly durable.

Glass mosaic tiles tend to have a shiny luminous style that creates an extra bright and spacious look in a room. When you combine them with well-positioned kitchen lighting, a dramatic lighting effect is the result.

Suitable Mosaics for a Wet Room Floor

As a Wet-room Floor will be subject to water coverage, it’s important to choose slip-resistant tiles in order to prevent any accidents and injuries. Natural stone or a Textured Porcelain mosaic is ideal while high gloss tiles with a polished sheen should be avoided at all costs.

Dark Interior Mosaics

Dark colours have taken over interiors so we weren’t actually too surprised to see Dark Mosaics as a definite forerunner in the year’s tile trends. While bright and airy bathrooms will always be in style, darker colours add mystery and drama to any space, including the smallest rooms in the house. Choose a dark mosaic tile with reflective properties to bounce any available light around a room and combine with gleaming white fixtures for the perfect contrast.

Benefits of Mosaic Tiles for Wet Room Floors

Mosaics are often preferred on wet room floors for 2 main reasons. 1) The mesh backing makes it easier for the mosaic to be maneuvered into place where falls (sloping) are required 2) They often add an extra level of slip resistance because of the grout lines which can act as a gully and help the water disperse.

Porcelain mosaic tiles are a good choice as their durability and anti-slip properties are essential in both residential and commercial properties.

At Quorn Stone we are always sourcing unique and beautiful limestones, to add to our ever growing range. Our new and exclusive find is the stunning Silver Cloud. This limestone is a contemporary stone with a sophisticated movement from cooler to warmer shades of subtle silver-grey tones. We recently had the opportunity to photograph one of our developer’s luxury, high end properties, where Silver Cloud has been used in the kitchen and dining area. The result is simply spectacular – but I will let the photos do the talking!

Silver Cloud Brushed Limestone Tiles

Silver Cloud is available in 500 x FL (Free Lengths). This tiles fixed width of 500mm is complimented by free lengths ranging from 600 – 1000mm ensuring that there is more stone and less grout. This format should be laid at least 100mm apart in order to create a random brick bond pattern for a great look.

Silver Cloud Brushed Limestone Tiles

Silver Cloud is also available in two different finishes;

Brushed – Results in a slight sheen and a textured surface

Sandblasted and Brushed – Results in a matt finish and a lighter colour to the surface of the tile with an even greater texture to the surface than a brushed finish

Predicting Mosaic Fashions

Predicting Mosaic Fashions – How to spot the up and coming trends.

We all know how frustrating it is buying a new whatever to find that next week you’ve got last years version and yours is half price. These days there is a new iPhone out for what feels like every season.

But it’s not just the technology industry who are guilty of churning out these products, which verges on planned obsolescence. The fashion industry drives many trends in various industries, including interior design.

So it’s the fashion industry’s fault your coral green bath and basin are considered something of a backwards trip in time. So why are these inconsiderate hippies in any position to say your bathroom isn’t as beautiful as last year, or decade.

80s bathroom

Well there’s obviously a little more to it than that. So the hippies I earlier referred to are known as content editors.

Whose job is to collect information about their local area’s culture. Including what businesses are opening, what people are wearing on the street, even what apps people are using.

Once the editors have agreed on the colours for their local area, they are put forward to a committee in America called CAUS. Whose expert team of designers and textile manufacturers. Who decide the closest representations of the year in question.

The representations they choose are diluted to be used in the clothing, interior design, advertising industries just to name a few.

Tiles and mosaics then, get their trends through the top interior designers using the trending colours in their work.

Companies strive to follow these trends as the coverage and general view of products in line with the fashion are current and perceived as better quality. Even though the trends are chosen 2 years prior to their respective year.

Here at Merchant Tiler, we supply a large range of conforming floor and wall tiles and mosaics. Our mosaics partner Glass Mosaic does too.

But we’re not going to tell you what’s good, our products speak for themselves.

FASHION COLOURS 17

 

But here’s the trending colour choices for Spring 2017 should you be interested. But in our opinion, just choose what you like, you might as well. It will be out of date next month anyway!
