How Kitchen Mosaics can breathe life into your cooking space.

(3 min read) Mosaics are a beautiful and unique way to elevate a living space and kitchens are often one of the best places for some artistically tiled titillations. Mosaics are the perfect home accents and come in a huge range of forms. They are a gorgeous way to infuse some more life into your cooking and dining, from sultry, matte stonework to the most colorful glass and marble murals.

1. Bring some style into your cooking with a mosaic kitchen backsplash

Backsplashes are an essential way to catch rogue sauce squirts and grease spatters, but who says they need to be entirely utilitarian? A backsplash offers a large, smooth space that, with the right mind-set, can be considered your very own blank canvas!

Tile mosaics are both easy to wipe and are sure to enrich the heart of the home with a creative touch. Whatever your style, a classy mosaic can fit the bill to bring even more flavor into the heart of the home. Try a delicious mosaic fruit mural or a cozy stonework kitchen backsplash design.

Here are some gorgeously innovative kitchen backsplash ideas to get your creativity flowing!

2. Create separation and depth with an island mosaic

Your breakfast bar or dining table can be the ideal landmark to help add dimensionality to your kitchen. A repeated mosaic island on or underneath the table can serve as a beautiful separation between the culinary and dining areas, along with adding an eye-catching centerpiece to your room. A mosaic island is the ideal home accent for those looking for a simple and elegant feel. Try sumptuous repeated patterns and shapes, or a classy dual-colored mosaic to create a gorgeous effect.

3. Mosaic cupboards and walls

There is no reason for plain cupboards… You can make the outside of your kitchen storage as exciting as the food inside it with a gorgeously personal mosaic mural. The endless design possibilities make mosaics an ideal way to achieve the aesthetic you want; whether a rustic, bohemian palace or a classy, modern motif.

    Wow! I really like that you show how mosaics can be very modern, young and hipster.
    On the classic ones, I loved the blue floor mosaic with the kitchen island.

    May 20, 2020 at 6:42 pm

    I absolutely love the tile floor or the pretty tile backsplash behind the stove. Such a good way to bring life into the kitchen.
