MOSAIC TILE

Mosaic Tile FAQs

 

What is mosaic tile?

Mosaic tile is any combination of tile sizes, colors, shapes and/or materials, set in a sheet for easy installation. They can be ceramic, porcelain, glass, natural stone and even metal or mirror, set randomly or in a pattern, and usually on a mesh-mounted sheet.

 

What is the difference between mosaic and tile?

Tile is a single piece of material (ceramic, porcelain, natural stone, etc.) cut in a uniform shape that can be arranged in different patterns to cover a surface. Tile is typically rectangular, but can be square, hexagon, picket, and many other shapes. Mosaics incorporate any combination of tile sizes, colors, shapes, and/or material to create a unique surface covering. Mosaic tiling is a unique form of artwork and often offers WOW factor to the wall, floor, kitchen backsplash, shower floor, pool lining, bathroom backsplash, and many other applications.

 

Do mosaic tiles need to be sealed?

It is generally recommended to seal mosaic tile. Some mosaic tiles require sealing both prior to and after installation. It is especially important to seal any mosaic tile that has porous surfaces, such as natural stone, to prevent staining. Sealing mosaic tile after installation will also help project the grout.

 

What do you use to stick mosaic tile to a wall?

The type of mosaic adhesive depends on where the mosaic tile is going. For any application where water will be present - showers, pools, fountains, spas, tub surrounds, outdoors, etc. -  a bonding agent called thinset should be used. Some artistic mosaics have the best appeal when a white PVA adhesive is used.

 

Is mosaic tile good for shower floor?

Yes, several aspects make mosaic tile an excellent choice for shower floors. First, shower floors have slopes, shapes and drains to consider. Mosaic tiling is smaller in size and the sheets are more flexible, making them the perfect solution for all these conditions. Second, the combination of smaller tile and more grout can provide improved slip resistance, which is imperative in a shower.

 

Can I use mosaic tile on the floor?

Yes, mosaic tile is suitable for use on the floor as well as walls. The recommended use for a particular mosaic tile is best determined by several factors, such as the level of traffic expected, whether an indoor or outdoor setting, and the likelihood of moisture. Your local Daltile showroom is an excellent source of information regarding which mosaic tiles are best in different applications.

 

Why is mosaic tile so expensive?

Mosaic tile is a combination of intricate patterns that are mounted piece by piece to a mesh or paper sheet, making the production labor intensive. Thus the price per square foot is often more expensive than regular tile.

 

Is mosaic tile easier to install?

Yes, compared to standard tile, mosaic tile is easier to install. Special equipment is required to cut regular tile. The mesh sheet that mosaic tile are attached to is easy to cut. With regular tile you can sometimes end up with a row of small awkward cut tiles. Since mosaic tiles are much smaller, this is easier to avoid. As with regular tile, it is important that care be taken to keep mosaic sheets straight while installing to ensure the mosaic patterns and grout lines are kept consistent.

 

What is the best glue for outdoor mosaics?

For exterior installation of mosaic tile, we recommend using thinset mortar rather than adhesives.

 

What kind of grout should I use for mosaics?

We recommend epoxy grout for mosaic tile. Compared to cement-based grout, epoxy grout is stronger, more stain- and crack-resistant, and remains stable under most environmental conditions. (Our Minute Mosaix have grout-free installation!)

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.com Emmett and I spent the weekend laying the floor tile in the guest bath and it turned out even better than I could have imagined. It’s SO so beautiful! I’m obviously smitten and am even more excited for this space to come to fruition than before. If you’re in the market for tile or are planning a renovation, I rounded up my favorite marble mosaics from Lowe’s and wanted to share a tutorial on installing mosaic floor tile. It’s not as difficult as you might expect. Click through for more…

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.com Before I dive into the DIY and installation part of this post, I figured I’d shed some light on why and how I selected this gorgeous geo marble mosaic floor tile. I really wanted to find something that felt classic (marble), a bit more modern (geometric), textural (patterned), and interesting (something I hadn’t seen a thousand times before). I also had a strict budget and wanted to keep it under $20 a square foot. I stumbled across this option and knew it would be perfect… plus I figured it would be an easy pattern to install (I was right). Lowe’s has plenty of easy-to-install floor tile options that allows you to save money without sacrificing style. Here are some swatches I saved while designing the guest bath, that also fit the bill:

Alright, onto the DIY and installation process! Here’s what you’ll need for the project if you’re starting from scratch with new cement board (like we did)…

SUPPLIES + TOOLS

To give you an idea of how much time this project will take… our bathroom is about 100 square feet and we finished over the course of a weekend- with both of us working on it. The savings were well worth the effort and given the gorgeous result, I wouldn’t have done it any other way! It’s an easy project if you’re willing to put in the elbow grease.

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.comStep 1 // Plan and cut the cement board. Before nailing anything in permanently, we like to dry fit the cement board pieces like a puzzle. This will ensure everything fits properly and will give the tile a nice, flat surface to bond to. If you don’t have a table saw, I believe you can even have these boards cut at your local store before bringing them home!

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.comStep 2 // Clean the floor surface. Your floor probably isn’t as gross and dusty as ours, but we had just finished sanding new drywall and everything was white and chalky. It’s important to clean the subfloor before proceeding to the next step.

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.com To give you a visual (above)… this is what our floor looked like BEFORE we sponged it off and cleaned. The mortar isn’t designed to bond to a layer of dust. Ha! I’m sure that’s obvious, but I wanted to call it out- just in case.

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.comStep 3 // Install the cement board. After the floor has been cleaned, mix up the mortar (per the instructions on the package) and apply a thin, even layer with your flooring trowel directly on top of the subfloor.

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.com Begin dropping the cement board “puzzle” pieces into place, evenly (and gently) pressing them into the mortar. Once they’re all in position, screw them into the subfloor to secure permanently with the Dewalt power drill.

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.comStep 4 // Tape the seams. After they’ve been screwed down, using a wide putty knife or flat trowel– spread a thin line of mortar over each seam. Follow the mortar with the mesh tape, then once everything has been taped, spread additional mortar on top of the tape, making sure to knock down any ridges or high spots.

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.com Above, you’ll see what our cement board looked like once we were finished taping and mudding the seams. Once you’ve finished the installation process, allow it to cure or harden overnight.

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.comStep 5 // Determine the tile layout. Now for the fun part… the tile! Before I got started the next morning, I used my Craftsman shop vac to carefully clean any loose pieces of dust, debris, and mortar. After that, I dry fit two lines of tile, running horizontally and vertically. This was to ensure the tile started and stopped where I wanted it to.

My pet peeve is seeing a sliver of tile against a bathtub or wall- or tile that isn’t centered in a room. Rather than dealing with tiny pieces as an afterthought, it’s best to arrange the layout to avoid any weird slivers when you get to the end of the wall or a corner.

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.comStep 6 // Set up, level, and straighten your first row. Once you have the general layout figured out, you’ll want to make sure your first guide row is perfectly straight and level. I used my Bosch laser level to make quick work of this. The above image shows how far off I was by eyeballing the tile row. It’s a good thing I pulled out the laser to double check because I wasn’t even close! Once you have your guide row perfectly straight, you can begin permanently setting the tile.

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.comStep 7 // Start tiling! This is the rewarding step… setting the tile! Using the power drill with the mixer attachment, mix up the same mortar you used for the cement board base. It should look like the above consistency.

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.com Slather the mortar onto the floor in sections using a 1/4″ notch flooring trowel. I like to put down enough mortar to lay 3 – 4 tiles at a time. Gently press and wiggle the mosaic into the mortar using the grout float(rather than your hands) to ensure it stays nice and level as you press. You’ll also notice I’m still using my laser level as a guide for the first couple rows… just until I get going.

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.comStep 8 // Continue laying tile and make any cuts needed. Once you get the hang of laying the tile, it goes pretty fast. If you’re working with a partner, Emmett and I have a system that works well for us… I lay the mortar and floor tile, while he makes the cuts on the Dewalt tile saw and delivers them to me.

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.com Once the entire floor is covered in tile, allow it to sit and cure overnight. Do NOT walk on the tile once you’ve installed it, until it’s totally hardened.

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.comStep 9 // Clean the floor in preparation for grout. The next day you’ll be able to grout, but first you need to clean and prep the surface! If any mortar seeped through the mosaic cracks, you’ll need to remove it with a grout saw.

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.com Once all of the lines have been cleaned, vacuum any debris and dust. I just use my shop vac and do this as I go. Luckily, we didn’t have a lot of mortar that seeped through (a job well done), so this only took me about an hour to complete.

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.com After that task is finished, use a damp sponge to completely clean the tile surface of any dust particles.

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.comStep 10 // Grout! Now you’re finally ready to grout. We used this premixed sanded Mapei flexcolor in silver to make things easy. It’s also the best product to ensure the color and texture is consistent throughout… which is ideal if you’re doing a larger space that would require lots of mixing.

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.com Since our space is so large, Emmett just dumped half a bucket at a time, pressing it into the tile crevices with the grout float. I’d recommend working in sections for larger rooms!

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.com Give the grout 5 – 10 minutes to rest, then use a damp sponge to wipe the haze. It will take several wipes and clean water changes to remove the haze completely… that’s totally normal! Just be patient and keep at it.

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.com Again, leave the grout overnight before walking on the tile. You want to make sure everything is cured and completely set or secure after wiping! The process might seem long, but it’s really very easy once you get into a rhythm. Here’s how our finished floor tile looks…

How to Install Mosaic Floor Tile + My Favorite Marble Mosaics - roomfortuesday.com I’m excited to start on the wall tile later this week! The guest bathroom is really coming along and I’m always super proud that we do things ourselves. This project was no exception- I love the look!
