The Power of Mosaic Touch!

It is simply the great energy that a wall, decorated with mosaic tile design brings to your clients, in your bistro or restaurant. A mosaic mural created by hand from hundreds or thousands of small mosaic pieces has a completely different effect than a simple wall paint or a print hanging on the wall. It makes your clients feel valued in your bistro or restaurant, through this investment in the mosaic art form, because you, as the owner, could have painted the large wall with a simple wall paint. This is not to say that a bistro or restaurant that does not have a mosaic tile design on the walls does not value its clients.

But considering the fact, it is a sign that shows what kind of value the owner of a bistro or restaurant gives to his interior and therefore to his clients. However, it is also clear that not every interior design concept is suitable for a mosaic tile design touch, which is perfectly okay.

Branding And Mosaic Tile Design – Wall

What does branding have to do with mosaic tile design on the wall? Actually a lot! A bistro or a restaurant has 2 good possibilities to make branding without permanent investment. On the one hand the good food, the good service and of course the location. On the other hand the interior design and – or maybe the exterior design. Of course, sometimes you can find very good food and drinks in weird places, but that doesn’t change the fact that in bistros and restaurants in good locations, a lot of attention is paid to the interior and exterior design. In short, it’s about places that talk about themselves! It simply helps the client to keep the bistro in mind. Of course, we must not forget that in front of large mosaic walls are also taken good photos and then shared on social media. No client takes a photo in front of an empty wall after a delicious meal.

The bistro with the large wall mosaic

We have experienced in the last 20 years that the large (up-scale) mosaic tile designs on walls that have been installed in bistros or restaurants have been talked about a lot. Some of our executed wall mosaic projects ended up so energetic that the customers of the bistro only said: “the bistro with the big wall mosaic”, and did not even know what the bistro was actually called. In the end, the goal is achieved. Your space will be recognized by the interior design, and will also be passed on to other potential clients.

Mosaic Tile Design – Technical Information

Shaped Mosaic Tiles and Pixel Mosaics

We would like to give you technical information before you hire us for a Mosaic tile design project. You can have your Mosaic Tile design, for your wall, created at your leisure, as we have experience in all directions as far as Mosaic Tile design is concerned. Nevertheless, this could be classified into 2 groups.
1- Shaped Tiles (Handmade)
2- Pixel Mosaic Tile Design (Hand placed tiles)

1- Shaped Mosaic Tiles (Handmade)

Wall decorations made of Mosaic Tile Design can have very different visual effects. This is due to the production of individual mosaics that are usually formed by pure handwork to create a whole image. These days, new alternatives keep coming on the market that can be shaped with pure manual labor and the help of a mosaic nipper. However, the fact remains that the most commonly used main component of mosaic tile design for your wall or floor is either wall tiles, floor tiles, marble or different glass mosaics.

Comparison: glass mosaic and marble mosaic

Glass mosaics could then be classified into 2 groups, namely, Stained Glass mosaics and Virteous glass mosaics. The application of marble mosaics for your project also has visual differences. For one, your Mosaic Tile Design – Wall will look rustic and matte. Unlike glass mosaics, this is a huge difference as a mosaic tile design project created from glass mosaics is more glossy and brings more contrast to the visual play. It is always eye-catching and outstanding in terms of interior color balance. The bottom line is that both materials work well with a mosaic nipper. The biggest difference is just the visual (colors, gloss).

We often create mosaic tile designs for walls with wall tiles, as they are very easy to work with an appropriate mosaic nipper. The reason for this is usually that they are processed only once in the oven during production. In this process, floor tiles are processed 2 times in a kiln and are then just not so easy to process with a mosaic nipper. But for this such floor tiles are suitable for mosaic tile design projects that are designed with “Art Nouvau style”. Of course, you can also use wall tiles for Art Nouveau style Mosaic tile design projects.

Nowadays, Pixel Mosaic Tile design for walls is often applied as a creating process. In such creation process no Mosaic Nipper is needed because the Mosaic tiles are simply set in mold. This can be done by hand or with robots.

what you should now about Pixel Mosaic Tile Design – Wall

Pixel Mosaic tile design for walls is nothing but a pixelated image, where the pixels are replaced with mosaics. For this reason, it is extremely important where the mosaic tile design is placed, because the human eye needs a certain distance to recognize the image. The experience of the mosaic designer comes into play here because he must know exactly whether the mosaic tile design applied to the wall is recognizable by the viewer or not. Another issue that arises during the design phase is the size of the total wall space. The mosaic designer must edit the image desired by the customer on the wall on the computer with the help of different softwares to see if the image can be implemented on the surface as a mosaic tile design. In most cases, the image requested by the customer is rejected because it cannot be implemented as a Pixel Mosaic Tile design because the area is too small and therefore the image will not be recognizable.

How Grout color affects the mosaic

Mosaic Tile Design - Pixel - Wall.
Mosaic Tile Design – Pixel – Wall – Joint review.

Without joints, a mosaic tile design on the wall or floor, unthinkable. It is because the joint holds each mosaic from 4 sides. Good and nice to know but what effect or rather what effect has the joint color on the whole? Very enormous I would say! Imagine that the joint width, depending on the application is between 1 mm – 3 mm. This means that for a Pixel Mosaic tile design created with 1×1 Cm, continuously, at every 1 Cm, 10 percent of grout color is incorporated. In other words, a 100 cm x 100 cm pixel mosaic tile design, the eye also sees a joint area or joint color of 10 cm x 10 cm. If the wrong grout color is selected or the grout color does not match the design, the pixel mosaic tile design will lose 10 percent of its visual impact and therefore its value.

Can it be done without joints?

The answer is yes and no. A gapless mosaic tile design to be applied in an interior Wall could be created without grout. However, such a production has two points that should be taken into consideration. On the one hand, it will be difficult to clean the mosaic. On the other hand, unfortunately, there is a possibility that individual particles will break free from the mesh or the wall.

It is a world where you can cut out wall tiles and floor tiles according to your design. The cut tiles are then glued to a net and numbered well packed and thus ready for use.
