Mosaics - the alternative to glass splashbacks in your kithcen

Mosaics an alternative to glass splashbacks

The most popular material used for splashbacks are mosaics. They are easy to install and there are so many to choose from.  Maybe that is why so many people, from architects, interior designers, builders and DIY love them, you can create features that are unique.  There are most likely about 5000 different mosaics available on the market, and that excludes combinations and permutations of mixes.
What is great about mosaics is that you can actually do it yourself, it is not that hard and there is space for mistakes which you can rectify, not like solid glass splashbacks.  If you make a measuring error with a toughened piece of glass, that is it, you have to cut and temper and paint a new one.
A mosaic splashback can also be created as a mural from a picture, some murals are pieces of artwork and are installed in living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens and bathrooms. Actually, you can install them anywhere you like, even in your pool.
The materials range from:
  • crystal glass (not toughened like solid glass splashbacks)
  • Acrylic or resin with stone inside
  • Natural stone
  • Coloured glass
  • Stainless steel
  • Aluminium
  • Copper
  • Gold (yes gold!)
  • Decorative glass
  • Porcelain and
  • Ceramic
So you can see, there are literally hundreds of mosaic splashbacks that can be designed from all these materials, and there is one design which will suit your requirements.
