Regardless if you choose a mural or any other type of pattern, tumbled tiles are available in quite a few different configurations. You don‘t have to make the commitment to all tumbled tile if you don‘t want to, nor do you have to have them all the same size. Some of the most intriguing kitchen tile backsplash ideas are those that simply add depth with size or material variations. You could have four rows of one size tile, topped with two rows of a smaller tile or you could toss in mirrored or colored glass for variety. Additionally, these variations could also form a pattern themselves. The possibilities are virtually endless when working with tumbled tile.
With all the mosaic glass tiles available on the market, how do you choose what to use? Here are some installation ideas that might get your started. Creativity is the key here.
Wall Designs: A beautiful mosaic or other tile design adhered to the kitchen wall is a masterpiece that never goes out of style. Place the tile design above your backsplash behind the stove or on a plain wall. Mosaics and tile designs can follow a decorating theme in your kitchen or just be and abstract arrangement of tiles. Surround a kitchen fireplace or window with a tile design that draws attention to a specific area of the kitchen to display the mosaic or favorite art. Create a picture frame of sorts out of tile that encases the mosaic or a window and is used in place of a traditional wood window frame. Add ceiling spotlights to shine on your tile design.
