DECORATIVE MOSAICS
FOR THE HOME

County Tiles in Guildford brings the modern touch to one of design's oldest techniques.

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.

Add a colourful touch
Mosaic tiling can have a striking visual effect on a room and it doesn't have to come at a hugely expensive price. When renovating a room, a backsplash, or creating a special accent with mosaic tiles can completely transform the whole look. Instead of purchasing new counters or a new bathroom suite, why not revamp a room with a colourful mosaic pattern surrounding a mirror, or as a border on the walls, or around the bath?

Light and drama
Mosaic tiles are becoming a more modern, upscale alternative to standard ceramic tiles. They are available in an exciting palette of colours, designs, textures, shapes and styles. Colour pigments are created underneath the glass, allowing for light-reflecting elegance.

The most popular mosaic tiles currently available are fusion blends of glass, stone, marble and metal all in the one tile. The mix of all these elements creates the light reflecting effect of glass with the natural and luxurious elements of stone and marble, perfect for sophisticated home decor.

Mosaic tiles have made it possible for us all to add a classic Mediterranean or stylishly modern element to our homes, with limitless opportunities for striking and creative expressions that you will want to show off.

How are they made?
These glamorous glass tiles and splashbacks are created from a handmade base glass imported from Poland, which is then cut to size for each individual product.

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.
