Trendy Mosaics from Daltile Offer Character, Depth and Dimension

New glass and natural stone mosaics options add to the infinite range of design possibilities

DALLAS (June 20, 2013) – Mosaic accents are “must-haves” right now, especially in kitchen backsplashes, shower walls and floor accents, and the use of glass, stone and metal are offering an even wider range of design possibilities. The texture and color movement possible with these mosaics add a depth, sparkle and luminescence to any space, and can be achieved through any of Daltile’s new mosaics, including Glass Horizons™ with Glass by Oceanside™, Color Wave™ Glass Mosaics and new Natural Stone Mosaics.
