Tiles are an inexpensive but beautiful way to create a backsplash, Mosaic tile backsplashes can be created by using a range of tiles in various materials, colors and sizes. You can also use broken pieces of glass and marble tiles and arrange a fun, budget-friendly mosaic pattern.
You can create a mosaic pattern using ceramic, glass, marble and/or metal tiles. Depending on the material(s) you choose, there may be a range of colors and shapes available. Select a color theme that matches the overall theme of your kitchen and find tiles that will work well in that space. For example, if you are seeking a classic, simple kitchen area, then you may want to choose beige, cream, white and other neutral tones to create a backsplash. A contemporary kitchen may call for black and white tiles paired with a bold color, like orange or red.
On the other hand, if you choose to use repurposed pieces of broken tiles, then all you will need a silicon caulk to arrange the backsplash into a mosaic pattern. Make sure to grout and seal the final product as you would with regular tiles.
The best part of a mosaic tile backsplash is that it allows room for the creative homeowner to add a unique, artistic flair to a kitchen area.
