A mosaic pattern without much effort with mosaic tile films

Small-scale tile patterns in which the individual color patches create an attractive overall appearance are already available prefabricated as a tile film. The offer ranges from the popular black-and-white checkerboard pattern to diffuse color patches, to geometric and representational figures.

Mosaic in tile size or smaller scale

Basically, there are two ways to create a mosaic pattern with tile foil. Either the existing tiles can be pasted in original size with different color foils or the film forms on a tile surface several smaller square mosaic patterns.

For one-to-one pasting, retailers and manufacturers offer ready-made grades made from cut-to-size tile film. In addition to these finished sortings, the individual composition is possible by means of individual orders, which is particularly necessary for unusual color combinations.

For tile foil with a small mosaic, joints between the individual mosaic elements, normally squares, are depicted. When selecting such a tile foil, it is important to note that the joint width and color match the actual joints of the wall tiles. Depending on the taste, however, the visual difference of the joints can also represent a special and intended "double" mosaic.
