Floor mosaic for bathrooms that really stand out are scarce. Let’s face it, mosaics are mostly found along walls in bathroom and used as splashbacks in kitchens.  There are various reasons, one of them is that mosaics are more expensive than floor tiles and the others is that mosaics are not as thick as floor tiles.  Most mosaics are between 4-6mm and the ceramic tiles, such as metro tiles, are not suitable for floor use. The reason is that the ceramic is not as hard and floor tiles.

When choosing a floor mosaic it has to stand up against constant water, drops, splashes and must be safe to walk on. It is estimated that up to 25% of household accidents take place in the bathroom, especially when climbing out of the bath tub. The ideal floor mosaic or floor tile for a bathroom must have a high friction coefficient. But that is difficult to determine unless the tile comes with detailed architectural specifications. Large tiles are more slippery than floor mosaics. That is because the space between each tile, where the grout is, creates the resistance that one needs.  Because your feet are soft, they take the shape of the floor mosaic. So the smaller the floor mosaic, the more resistance you will have when walking on it.

The Octagonal Floor Mosaic is ideal for bathroom floors.  Because of the small size of the tiles, it creates a large friction area. Further, because it is a glazed ceramic and not natural stone, it can handle water without being treated or sealed every 5 years. One must however, seal the grout with bonding liquid.

The Octagonal Floor Mosaic is ideal for modern bathrooms as well as classic Victorian style bathrooms.  The white and black tiles creates contrast but will also diffuse light throughout the bathroom.
