Mosaic tiles for a colourful home: an inspirational guide

Mosaic tiles are some of the most colourful and bright interior décor installations to put in your homes. They are a permanent colourful addition to your home. From paint-me-happy colours to monochromatic schemes all such patterns and styles of monochromatic tiles are what we long for to have eccentric and happy interiors. 

These tiles are very durable and scratch and heat resistant therefore make a safer option to incorporate in kitchens, countertops and can be fully incorporated on the rooftops. These tiles are used as wainscoting to protect the wells from water and scratches and are very hardy and long-lasting. 

Once laid on the walls or flooring you do not have to think twice about the colour fading away or the trouble of flooring treatment. They are safer and cost-effective installations to your home. You can perfectly make these types of tiles in your homes with the patterns and designs that you like simply by mixing various colours of chipped tiles on white cement to give the most colourful and bright floorings. 

Mosaic tiles are an easy plugin for your interior decor, you can place them anywhere you want and it immediately changes the interiors of the place. They come in various patterns and designs and below are some of the ways that you can incorporate mosaic tile patterns in your home:


opt for an intermix of vibrant coloured tiles that run through the same patterns to give a 3-Dimensional effect. You can place it on the kitchen wall or bathroom tiles to make an eccentric spot of the pace. The patterns on the mosaic tiles can be unlimited. Choose the colours according to the background of the wall. If it is a neutral tone, you can opt for more brighter coloured tiles and interlay a mix of patterns and colours that can form a pattern of your choice. Vibrant colours are always an easy option if you want to create something extra out of the mosaic tiles.


Vintage mosaic tiles are some of the most popular choices. The tiles are not exactly chipped, however, a wider tile is used and painted on in traditional patchwork style to give beautiful and evergreen patterns. These vintage mosaic tile patterns can be seen in religious places and Victorian era inspired murals. They are a minimalistic way of incorporating mosaic tiles into your interiors. Vintage tiles can come in hand prints and machine prints. Homes with rustic and natural material flooring can incorporate the vintage patterns of mosaic tiles to give the space a very pleasing to the eyes interior look.



You can create magnificent patterns from the coloured tiles. You can utilise the leftover tile in your home, they can be of any material, even granite and marble are sometimes included in the lot. These iconic murals can be curated easily at home and is a sustainable way of utilising leftover materials. They look excellent in bathrooms or kitchen areas near a water source as they reflect beautifully through water and make the space unique. In case you have any ideal walls sitting around the house make a mosaic tiled mural on that wall to transform a boring corner into a artsy place. 


An interplay of contrasting colours can be incorporated to make circles or squares in the flooring to give it a twist. Traditional flooring patterns are similar throughout the rooms, however, you can customise that flooring and incorporate a beautiful and unique shaped mosaic tile pattern that has bright and radiant colours. Mixing in bright red and orange and blues together will give the interiors an excellent colour pattern and texture. You can add these in the tiles of the floor or bedroom walls to inculcate a glaring and glossy surface to the walls.



If you are looking for a more subtle and minimalistic look, Go for a colour blocking pattern like shown in the picture above. In case you have two colours of tile that do not exactly match, lay them in any geometric fashion and make it work as a colour blocking scheme throughout the walls.  You can lay in any color that you want and incorporate it in the bathroom or kitchen accent walls to give the walls an extra look and colour.


Go for the traditional mosaic pattern look. Floral patterns look amazing throughout the walls a halfway through the covering. Floral patterns remain evergreen and therefore make for an everlasting and in trend look. You can create brilliant and uniquely shaped flower patterns and it is easy to make as well. Make your interiors reflect that colour and depth through multiple patterns of flower mosaic tiles in the living room accent wall.



Make a permanent entrance with the geometric patterned mosaic tiles for your entryway. This is an easy pull off if you are looking to revamp your place, but have a low budget or want to add in textures and colours in some of the common areas. You can add any and every tile in the flooring of your house to make a geometric shaped pattern that immediately lifts up the interiors of the room.


Mosaic tiles can be combined in different ways to make a wonderful and intricate pattern. Mosaic tiles can be incorporated into the walls by making square slabs of patterns and then utilising those to make an even bigger pattern. These tiles are very flexible in the way that they can have multiple shapes and sizes and are not restricted in only giving a chipped pattern. For a more fine and polished look, you can make these tiles in intricately shaped bigger and bolder patterns.


Mosaic tiles can come in modern patterns and shapes as well. They are included below the table area to uplift an otherwise darker corner to give off colours that reflect posh finish. If you want to include a modern and luxurious style, go for the cylindrical-shaped monotone mosaic tiles for the corners that could use some colour. Add some lighting and voila, you have yourself a personalised hosting spot or entertainment zone.



Mosaic tiles help in making a place or wall brighter with the help of natural lighting and therefore can be brilliantly incorporated in the areas that have a natural skylight. These tiles were traditionally used for wainscoting to protect the walls in the alleyway or household from water and wear and tear without the need of fixing the paints on the wall repeatedly. You can lay an entire wall of the mosaic tiles like shown in the picture to create the alleyways or entry corners of your place beautiful and polished.

OVERALL, mosaic tile have a beautiful and unique appeal to the interiors of the home and is an overall, a sustainable way to utilise the leftover tiles and materials in your house to keep them bright and beautiful. They are very cost effective and long lasting alternative to an otherwise expensive natural stone like granite and marble. They can be incorporated in a number of ways to make an eccentric and intricate pattern or to put a lavish and polished finish to the walls of the house and protect the paint on them as well.
