What Houzz contributors are saying:
MosaicsWhile the word “mosaic” may bring to mind complex forms that create lively patterns and images, in design terms a mosaic is simply any small tile in a repeated shape (or set of shapes), typically attached in small sheets to matting for easy installation. A very common example is a 1-inch by 1-inch square, although endless shapes and patterns are available.Browse thousands of mosaic tile options on Houzz
Emphasize one accent wall. The large cream tiles on this side wall support the small-scale green glass mosaic tile.
Wall-mounted faucets are a better choice than deck-mounted ones. Gravity is working for you, carrying water and soap residue away from the faucet instead of having it all collect at the base. Wall-mounted faucets also keep the counter clear, making it easier to wipe it down.
2. Create a feature wall If you're not much of a border or stripe person, another great technique is employing a feature wall behind the sink (or on the back wall of the shower or tub as shown below). This requires more square footage of the more expensive mosaic tile, but still not as much as doing a whole bathroom!
