Mosaics have been around for thousands of years and there is a reason why. They don’t fade or warp and when constructed properly, they are practically indestructible.
Here are a 5 ways that you can use mosaics to improve the look of your home.
A really simple and cost-effective way to make your house stand out from the crowd. At Jenzart, mosaic house numbers are my most popular item. I have heaps of designs to choose from or you can give me your ideas and I will custom-design something to suit your unique style, whatever that is.
Perfect for the Beach House
Pot plants are a nice way to dress up the the front of your home but put them into a mosaic pot and you are really making a statement. Just look how my friend Lisa has opened up her narrow concrete entryway with this oversized mosaic pot.
Custom Name Sign
By giving your house a name it creates a sense of belonging. It doesn’t matter if it’s your everyday residence or your holiday pad, a name sign will make your house feel more like a home. I custom-design front door signs in both seashell and ceramic tile mosaics. You can choose pretty much any color and/or graphic you like and I work with you to make sure they get exactly the look they are after.
An outdoor shower is a must for any beach house but why not make yours a work of art. My good friend, Lisa O’Leary, makes these stunning Mosaic Surfboard Showers which will definitely improve the look of your outdoor space. The fact that they have a practical side is just an added bonus. No need to call a plumber to install, this surfboard shower connects directly to your hose.

Okay this is the big one.
A mosaic mural could transform the look of your home. Mounted on wall or floor, you can even install it yourself. Of course, if you intend to install a floor mosaic it might take a bit of pre-planning to make sure it blends in with its surrounds.
For this mural, which adorns the front of my house, I constructed the mosaic on a fibre cement substrate, in manageable size pieces. I then asked my floor tiler to install it when he was laying the surrounding tiles. He did an amazing job, it sits perfectly flush.
At Jenzart, I create all my mosaics using only the highest quality materials. They are fully weatherproof and will last for many years.
