Mosaic Tiles are an ideal choice in any home, noted for their durability, longevity, and aesthetic appeal, but are they practical for wet room floors? In this article, we will be discussing everything you need to know about using mosaic wet room floor tiles, from why they are an ideal choice to how much maintenance they require.
Why choose mosaic tiles for wet rooms?
Mosaic tiles are an excellent choice for any wetroom as they not only look fantastic but are also very practical for the space.
Most mosaics can be used on wet room walls, but there are specific qualities and materials of mosaics that can be used on wet room floors that you need to look out for. As always, please check the mosaic packaging for the suitability of that particular mosaic. Nevertheless, mosaic tiles can be particularly useful on bathroom floors as they effortlessly mould themselves around the space and across the essential drainage slopes.
In a wet room, you need simple, easy to clean and hygienic elements, qualities found in mosaic tiles.
Which type of material is best?
When it comes to which material is ‘best’ for your home, there are different considerations for your wet room walls and floors. For wet room walls, glass, porcelain and natural stone mosaics are suitable. For wet room floors, only porcelain or natural stone mosaics are suitable. Glass mosaics are too slippy to be used on wet room floors. Metal or self-adhesive mosaics are splashproof only, and therefore are not suitable for either wet room walls or floors.
Here at House of Mosaics, we’ve created a wide range of styles, colours and designs to find something that perfectly matches your space.
Marble, slate, limestone and other natural stone materials are often used in projects that seek to bring the beauty of nature indoors. They are a gorgeous addition to any wet room, but as they are all porous stones, it is always advised to have them professionally sealed by a tile specialist.

How much maintenance is needed?
If correctly cleaned, maintained and cared for, your mosaic wet room floor tiles can last a lifetime. Thankfully, mosaic tile maintenance is incredibly minimal and often only requires warm water, a mild household cleaner and a non-abrasive cloth. Little and often is a rule of thumb when cleaning mosaic tiles in a wet room to avoid any discolouration or mould from growing. You may often wish to use a toothbrush and a mould and mildew cleaner to get into those harder to reach tiled areas, but generally, you will find that mosaic tiles stay looking great year on year.
