Mosaics bring a softly textured, unique charm to today's interiors. This season has seen home owners, designers and architects using mosaics not only in bathrooms and kitchens but also in bedrooms, either on one wall or in a zoned format. Mosaics are placed around headboards, as frames for fireplaces and mantels, and incorporated with ceramic countertops and floor tiles, the options are endless.

How are they made?
Depending on the overall design of the tile, each one could consist of up to 5 layers of the base glass. These basic layers are then enhanced by specialist coloured glass enamel, which is carefully applied by hand in various mixtures and patterns. Following this, the tiles are fired in a kiln at strictly controlled temperatures. It is essential that the kiln heats to the correct temperatures and cools at particular rates to prevent the glass from cracking. During the kiln-firing process the glass layers and colour enamel fuse together trapping tiny air bubbles inside giving a unique intensity of colour and depth. These products are slightly thicker than standard tiles and splashbacks so not only will they stand out from existing tiled or painted walls, the extra depth enables light to pass through the decorative feature from the sides, highlighting the colours and textures within. Rupert Scott has created eight striking collections for splashbacks and seven design collections for glass tiles. So if you're looking for a new twist of excitement to your home decor and to be envied by all your neighbours, visit County Tiles showroom in Guildford and be inspired by the large selection of contemporary handcrafted glass tiles on offer.
