Mosaic tile is emerging more and more as a modern design concept, despite its very classical roots. Partly, this has to do with more new materials â€“ glass, high quality plastics, polished ceramics, etc. â€“ that lend this time-tested tile a contemporary feel. Mosaic tile is showing up in kitchen and bathroom designs, on outdoor patios, in entrywaysâ€¦all over! This has to do with tileâ€™s durability and mosaicâ€™s appealing and flexible visual appearance. So savvy home remodelers can achieve whatever look they want as they go through their home improvement project without sacrificing strength for aesthetics.
