Ever found tiles and simple garden paving boring?
Lots of people are starting to customise their bathrooms, kitchens and gardens (something most tilers and pavers are fully capable of doing) namely in the form of mosaics.
A mosaic is nothing more than lots of small pieces of broken tile, glass or stone, arranged to form a pattern or picture. The pieces of mosaic can be fitted to create any design that a customer wants, much like a jigsaw, and look great on floors and even walls.
One type of floor covering which is often overlooked is ceramic tile. The most common areas to put these are the kitchen and the bathroom; you don’t often see them anywhere else in the house irrespective of the fact that they are easier to clean and generally more hygienic than carpet, as well as having plenty of other advantages. They can even make the perfect wall covering!
