Mosaic is the art of fitting several pieces of shell, stone, tile, glass or other materials together in a pattern. The pieces are normally squares, triangles or other regular shapes and are layed and set on mortar. Its popularity has expanded over the years as it adds life to any room with the vibrant colors that are often chosen when making it. This art traces back to Greece and Rome in which instance pebbles were normally used. Places like Mexico and the Middle East also have a strong history of using this art form.
Today, many people use mosaic in various places of their home including the bathroom whether it is the walls, flooring, sink, bathroom fixtures or even as a backdrop. Mosaic tiles may be made from marble, ceramics, terrazzo, among other substances.
