Artistic and versatile, Indonesian mosaics are the perfect addition to any home. Coming in wide range of colours and styles, mosaics can be used indoors and outdoors, both for practical purposes and to create stunning creative pieces.

1. Swimming pool tiles

Square-cut mosaic tiles will lend your pool a beautiful array of blue hues that bring to mind the rolling currents of the sea (there's a reason why we've named one of our mosaic tile offerings 'Ocean Wave'!) Glazed ceramic mosaic tiles, also known as Mass Kuda Laut ceramic tiles, are ideal for swimming pools due to their smooth texture, and they'll lend yours the sparkling, fresh aesthetic of a Balinese resort.

2. Kitchen walls

Indonesian mosaic tiles can be used to adorn kitchen walls and work particularly well for wall spaces above a bench or rangehood. Stains from cooking and preparing food can be wiped off quickly and easily.

Pebble and marble mosaics work well in kitchen areas, and we offer a wide range of colours that can work in with your existing decor. Alternatively, glass mosaic tiles can give your kitchen a more glamorous look. These come in a range of blue and green shades that provide a little colour to kitchen areas that lack vibrancy.

3. Bathroom walls and floors

Easy to clean and water resistant, mosaic tiles are perfectly suited to all areas of the bathroom. Looking for something elegant and sophisiticated? Choose classic white or gold tiles. If you're after something a bit more unique or textured, pebble mixed mosaic varieties can be ideal.

Mosaic tiling is a beautiful and creative option for your interior flooring. Mosaic tiling is a beautiful and creative option for your interior flooring.

Mosaics have been used for centuries to create beautiful, intricate works of art.

4. Feature art

Mosaics have been used for centuries to create beautiful, intricate works of art on walls, floors and household objects. The ancient Greeks used what is known as the 'tessera technique', whereby stone was cut into triangular or square shapes to fit into a grid of cubes. Mosaics would depict scenes from everyday life, animals, battle scenes and famous figures. 

Using the ancient Greeks as your inspiration, you could create your very own work of wall or floor art using mosaic tiles that will really make guests go 'wow'. Mosaic stone is very easy to cut, which makes arranging the tiles to form patterns quite straightforward.
