February 09, 2024


Choosing a smaller pattern for flooring and wall tile is a great way to add dimension, movement, and visual interest to any interior design. Mosaic patterns also provide a unique opportunity to express your personal style in a sophisticated and modern way that borrows from timeless trends.

Our tile collections include numerous materials, colors, and patterns. You’ll find natural stone options that infuse your home with the appealing beauty and complex character of marble and porcelain products that deliver the soft elegance and easy maintenance busy homeowners love.

Mosaic tile can be subtle or bold, depending on your preference, with different sizes and configurations that help you create breathtaking designs to transform your kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room, front entrance, or other areas of the home.

Planning custom room designs featuring complementary flooring, countertops, and walls is easy with coordinating tile colors and patterns. Matching trim pieces complete your elevated look.

How can you incorporate mosaic micro-pattern tiles in a way that feels true to your home interior and your personal style? There are several popular designs to consider.

Black and White Kitchen Delight

Countertops and backsplashes are frequently the focus when designing utility spaces like a kitchen or laundry room. Because this area is in the middle plane of the room, where the eye naturally falls first upon entering, it’s a natural choice for a centerpiece.

With the right porcelain tile, however, you could also opt for a showstopping floor style that creates a foundation for the rest of the room. Domino White & Black Mod Petal Pattern Tile is an ideal choice to add a whimsical touch paired with a classic color motif.

White hexagonal tiles in 1” sizing make up the bulk of this design, accented by a repeating floral pattern in contrasting black. The effect is a bold, striking floor with a grounding presence in a bright, spacious laundry room featuring white walls and cabinets.

Black hardware, along with counters and backsplashes in Marquina Midnight marble look quartz, draws on the darker detailing in the floor to create a chic and balanced aesthetic.

A Fresh Take on the Hive Motif

It’s hard to deny the enduring appeal of mosaic tile in a hexagonal pattern that mimics the stunning, modular construction of a honeycomb. This naturally geometric design appeals to the human desire for order, balance, and uniformity while retaining the calming properties people associate with organic patterns.

If you’re looking for a honeycomb pattern with extra panache, you’ll love Domino White & Gray Hive Pattern Tile in porcelain. This upscale design in 1” hexagonal tiles features a white backdrop with a distinctive gray inlay. The pattern is characterized by columns of elongated hexagons separated by diamond shapes.

When used for bathroom flooring and a full-height backsplash, these tiles add movement to a small space, and the mosaic pattern has a modern, refined, and visually stimulating look if paired with white walls, a floating black vanity, and black fixtures.

Hexagonal Harmony

Whether you're captivated by the play of sunlight filtering through tree branches or find yourself mesmerized by stunning works of art, chances are you’re attracted to the harmony and relaxation of organic design. If so, you’ll adore Bianco Dolomite Tibi Polished Patterned Tile in marble.

This multi-tonal tile, made up of 1” hexagons in soft white and pale gray with hazy veining in pewter and graphite, creates an illusion of depth and movement across a flat space, making it a great choice for backsplash tile if you have an expansive kitchen wall.

Cool tones are particularly well suited to modern countertops in pale gray. Hardware and accessories in silver hues complement the modern vibe without overtly drawing attention, ensuring the tile is the star of your kitchen design.

Soft and Symmetrical Chevron Styling

A classic chevron pattern offers incredible movement through symmetrical zigzags spanning any surface area. Utilizing 1” honeycomb tiles in contrasting colors adds unexpected softness while enhancing a traditional design.

Azul Sazi Polished Tile in marble is a stunning interpretation of these principles, with a double row of white marble flecked with pale gray veins, broken by a single row of midtone, blue-gray tiles. A polished finish enhances the natural luminescence of the stone.

Soft colors and bold patterning unite in a perfect marriage of comfort and style that won’t overwhelm, even with floor-to-ceiling application.

It’s a calming choice for a spa-like primary bath and looks particularly lovely backing a free-standing soaker tub with a modern, clawfoot design. The feeling is calm, clean, and steeped in understated luxury when paired with knotty wood flooring and white accents.

Less Is More With Micro-Pattern Mosaic Tile

Small-pattern tiles pack a major visual punch, offering opportunities to bring color, dimension, and visual texture to any living space. They can be soft and soothing or make a bold statement, allowing any homeowner to create an interior that perfectly matches their personal style.

Creating sophisticated designs that feel like home is easy when selecting patterned tiles in elegant marble or pristine porcelain.

Whether you’re looking for that statement-making kitchen backsplash, a tranquil addition to your primary bath, or a way to update your entryway with a welcoming ambiance and an upscale aesthetic, you’ll find the perfect mosaic tile among our unique collections.
