Marble mosaic tiles

Tumbled marble mosaic tile and polished marble mosaic tile are typically manufactured from 3/8" larger slabs of tile. Depending on the style of tile chosen the methods of manufacturing vary greatly. The key to this from a design standpoint is whether having a product that is machine produced or hand made has relevance to the project. Although the products differ in layout, square versus interlocking, because of the nature of the product layout both produces a seamless field.

Polished mosaic tiles are typically not formed from broken mosaics. They are usually uniformly cut into 1"x 1" squares that are then glued onto 12" x 12" mesh mounted tile backings. This is an automated process and as such produces a very uniform result. The tiles typically have a 1/16" separation between the marble mosaic tile squares and to maintain a seamless look that separation should be used between the full tile sheets. It is possible to use larger tile spacers but that may compromise the integrity of the look for a tumbled marble flooring.

11/2 to 3 inch pieces. Then the pieces are placed in a tumbler which rotates the marble mosaic tiles with an abrasive which softens all sharp ends and bevels all the edges so there are no rough areas exposed. These pieces are then hand puzzled onto a 12 x 12 inch interlocking mesh backing. It is critical that installers do not use any spacers otherwise the seamless concept will be compromised.

Finally, the biggest concern for many is how easy or complicated is the installation. Like the pebble tiles, the application is very straight forward. The biggest key is making sure the marble mosaic tiles interlock or that the seam lines are less than 1/16". The other important point is cleaning the excess grout off the installation so that the individual pieces stand out.
