Mosaic tiles are a much-loved feature of contemporary interior design thanks to their beautiful tessellating shapes and the intricate patterns they create on walls. Among our vast mosaic tile collection, there are few designs quite as beautiful as our mother of pearl mosaic tiles, made from genuine mollusc shells and boasting a lustrous pearlescent finish.
Why mother of pearl mosaics?
It’s plain to see that our luxurious mother of pearl mosaic tiles are a stand-out option in our vast range of wall and floor tile designs - but you might be surprised to learn just how many benefits come with using these one-of-a-kind tiles on your walls.
Here are just some of the many practical and aesthetic benefits of our stunning mother of pearl tiles:
- Strength and durability: the strength of the natural shell materials used to make our mother of pearl tiles makes them extremely durable and able to effortlessly withstand years of wear and tear for a lasting finish on walls anywhere in the home
- Water resistance: naturally, being derived from sea-dwelling moluscs’ shells, our mother of pearl tiles are completely impervious to water. This makes them a practical wall tiling option for moisture-prone rooms like kitchens and bathrooms where regular waster splashes and exposure to moisture are inevitable
- Heat resistance: as if that wasn’t enough, our mother of pearl mosaics are heat-resistant, too, meaning you won’t have to worry about changes in temperature throughout the year and can enjoy peace of mind that they’ll survive use in steamy showers and wet rooms
- Sustainability: as shell is a natural material, producing our mother of pearl tiles requires fewer chemicals and less energy than that of other tiles, meaning these are also an eco-friendly tiling option for sustainably minded homeowners
- Beauty: last but by no means least, these gorgeous mosaic wall tiles have a breathtaking iridescent shine, meaning your space will be tinted with a rainbow of beautiful colour when these pearlescent tiles catch the light
