I absolutely love do-it-yourself projects around the house and I’ve been dying to update the kitchen and master bathroom. I’d really like to have a professional come in and install some granite counter tops for me, but then I’m sure I’d have to also spruce up the rest of the kitchen.
I’ve put down ceramic tile floors in the kid’s playroom and in a couple rentals that I’m super glad I don’t own anymore, so I think that putting in mosaic tiles for a backsplash in the kitchen would be very easy to do using these 1″x1″ tiles that are sold in 12″x12″ sheets.
I really like the look and colors in the kitchen shown at the top, but I think I’m really leaning toward this style that mixes marble, glass and decorative copper tiles. I collect antique copper pots, pans and primitive hammered copper artwork and this mosaic would match my decor perfectly. Of course there are tons of different styles, designs and colors to choose from when you go with mosaic tiles, so there is something for every taste.
While I’m at it, I think I’m going to have to renovate the bathroom as well. There are lots of different shapes to choose from, including bricks and diamonds and I think I’d like to mix it up a little. I’d pick something in a matching color scheme, but I really like the look of these random brick style mosaic tiles for a shower surround. I’ve been checking out photo galleries of tile projects this morning and I’m almost salivating over all the different designs. I think the shopping portion of the project is at least half the fun, but I’m ready to get started because I think that updating the kitchen and bathroom will make it seem like I’m coming home to a whole new house!
