Bathroom floor mosaic tiles reigned supreme in Mid-Century Modern design. Geometric patterns, starburst and custom art graced hundreds of bathrooms through from the 50s through the 70s. And while other Mid-Century elements like the furry toilet tank covers stay safely in nostalgia, unique tile patterns are again bringing mod to modern.
Updating Bathroom Floor Mosaic Tiles
While bathroom floor mosaic tiles now fill showrooms, much of the inspiration comes from classic home themselves. Renovation trends uncovered affection for placing tiles in patterns. It also marked a departure from the “standard” size tiles of the past few decades. As people discovered the appeal of unique circular, hexagon and rectangular tiles, they found opportunities to express more creativity in bathrooms and powder rooms.
One style of the last few years that transitioned with this artistic trend is keeping tiles in a natural shade palette when constructing mosaics. Some may still find the 1950s pinks charming, but many extend the “spa-like” settings with earth tones. Mosaics also seem to marry well with the recent popularity of sea glass tiles. When arranged with motion, these magical translucent tiles bring the calmness and serenity of ocean waves into floors, backsplashes and even shower stalls.
Those wanting a bit more character look toward creating mosaic scenes, often depicting regional influences or even hobbies. The addition of computer-assisted design now takes a lot of the guesswork out of these projects. However, we always advise consulting a professional experienced in mosaic design before undertaking any detailed art venture. No one wants their desire for a shower porpoise unveiled as a misshaped, gray gorilla.
