What is a backsplash?
A backsplash is more than just a surface to protect your walls from water and debris. It can be an opportunity to express your creativity, highlight a favorite color or pattern, and add a striking accent to a private space.
There are many ways you can select a backsplash style, but one thing should always remain in mind: maintenance. Ensure that any backsplash material you choose is ideal for bathroom use, especially in frequently used areas like the shower.
There are a wide variety of mosaic bathroom tiles available to help you create the perfect sanctuary. But how do you know which tiles will work best with your bathroom?

Choose the right material
Before you start shopping for your bathroom mosaic backsplash, you need to think about the material you want to use. Tiles come in a vast range of different textures.
Ceramic tiles are a top pick for most bathrooms because they’re low-maintenance. Glass tiles look sleek and sophisticated, while marble or stone is a luxurious option.
Consider your color scheme
The next thing to think about when deciding on a mosaic backsplash is your color scheme. Does your bathroom have a neutral color palette? Or bright and bold colors? Do you like warm tones or cool tones? Are you looking for florals or something more modern? Maybe you love black and white with pops of shimmering metallics here and there. Whatever your preference, consider the style of the rest of the bathroom and how the mosaic backsplash will be integrated with it.
Pick the style and design
Modern or traditional? Figurative or abstract? Timeless or unexpected? You’ll want to match your artistic mosaic tiles to the architecture of your home and the design scheme of your space. Pick one that best reflects your style and makes the most sense for your bathroom. You can opt for a large mural that is perfect for making a statement. Alternatively, you might just want a smaller mosaic backsplash on the side of your tub or shower.
