Clever Ideas with Mosaic Tiles and Douglas Jones

January 17, 2018

Create drama and contrast in your modern home and a contemporary feel that you’ll love, by simply updating the tiles and incorporating a few clever ideas with mosaics for added style.

From the bathroom, to the kitchen, tiles are not just functional and versatile materials – the right combination can work to enhance any elegant look and ambiance. Get the look with Douglas Jones and create a soulful retreat with these nifty mosaics as inspiration in your own space.

The Hexagon in Matte Black

Instead of a cookie-cutter square or rectangular tile, spice things up with striking hexagonal mosaics and create a feature in your bathroom or kitchen. Hexagons are on trend and offer added appeal in different shades. Black hexagon mosaics paired with a striking white subway tile creates a timeless, classic yet updated feel. We also love that the below bathroom features white grouting along the edges of the black hexagonal tiles for added drama!


White on white

For a more minimalist look, but with added interest, pair white mosaics with a combination of layouts. Below we see how darker grouting pops against the white tiles to create a clever little storage nook in the bathroom. The best part about using tiles here? If dirty or wet in a humid bathroom, simply wipe down with a clean cloth and some soapy water, and the tiles will remain in tip top condition!

Herringbone Love!

We have seen a reemergence of the herringbone pattern within trendy homes, from floors to tabletops and even tiles in the bathroom, such as this clever herringbone shelf in stunning grey shades, featured right within the shower! We love the timelessness of this design and that it adds visual appeal without overwhelming the senses.

Add interest with a border

Break up a monotone wall with a mosaic border for added flair. You can choose to add a mosaic border along the edges of your tiled surface, or go bold, like the below example, and add interest right in the centre of the tiled wall, for visual appeal!

Black and White

This colour combination is always a winner – black and white works wonderfully in any bathroom or kitchen space. The combinations are endless, so speak to a tile professional about your options and create a fascinating pattern using mosaics in these simple hues.
