When one talks about installing a floor, nothing beats the classic tiled kind; it’s versatile and easy to clean.

But a floor doesn’t always have to be boring. It’s time we picture it as a perfect canvas that lends itself for whatever kind of art we want to put on it. And this is when mosaic flooring comes into play.

Known to be an ancient art form that’s been around for over 4,000 years, the mosaic is an elegant art form crafted from bits of colourful ceramic, tiles, stones and glass. Like a painting, the coloured pieces can be made into a variety of cool patterns and motifs according to the liking of its artist. The mosaic is also treated as a conversational piece; it has the capacity to depict thought-provoking ideas and stories. So those who are actually thinking of re-doing their floors, some form of mosaic pattern should be one of your first go-to options.
