With so many patterns and material options from which to choose, mosaics for bathroom areas, kitchen backsplashes and even swimming pools can suit any style. Traditionalists will appreciate classic square, penny round and brick mosaics in the full range of material options, including stone, wood, glass and ceramic tile. Complex geometric patterns that mix colors and materials veer toward modernism and contemporary aesthetics. Effects that replicate other materials, such as pearlescent sea shell and glimmering metals, increase the dimensional effect of mosaics. From staid to stylish, a functional mosaic option exists for every wet area.
