The topic of White Marble Mosaics is a broad one and bears some explanation. Let’s dive in and understand this subject a little better in order to create a better informed end user.
Firstly, mosaic is defined by dictionary.com as “a picture or decoration made of small, usually colored pieces of inlaid stone, glass, etc”. This is admittedly a very layman’s version as a definition. It is, however, still informative. Now let’s throw in the typical image of mosaics as smaller “things”, such as marble, fitting together in a pattern of some type that creates a larger whole. Fair enough.
Secondly, marble is defined by, once again dictionary.com, as “metamorphosed limestone, consisting chiefly of recrystallized calcite or dolomite, capable of taking a high polish, occurring in a wide range of colors and variegations and used in sculpture and architecture”.
Thirdly, we should consider how white marble mosaics can be utilized. Almost any interior residential use is reasonable. For example, flooring in dry areas, wall coverings, backsplashes, vertical and horizontal feature elements, etc., etc. As to exterior applications, the same general guidelines can be carried forward from the residential arena with two major caveats. Be careful in climates subject to great freeze-thaw cycles and be cognizant of potential slip-fall situations in areas subject to wet conditions.
Throughout this post we have offered a few of our Turkish marbles: Avalon, Afyon, Avenza, and Glacier. All images are linked to the respective collection. In conclusion, we hope you have gained some perspective on what White Marble Mosaics actually are and how they are used. Thanks for reading!
