5 Styles of Thassos Marble Tiles and Mosaics for Your Home

Posted by DEKO Tile on

Known for its durability, beauty, and simplicity, Thassos marble is a popular tile choice around the country and the world.

While Thassos is widely beloved for the luster and unique marbling it offers in large tile slabs, the material is also common in mosaic tile.

Today, exciting new varieties of Thassos marble mosaic tile are surfacing on the market, and they're providing a unique way for people to beautify interior spaces.

Praised for its purity, Thassos marble mosaics and tiles are ideal for a variety of uses and, when used correctly, can add a unique look and feel to any room.

Here are five of our favorite Thassos marble mosaic and tile options for today’s homeowners and designers.

1. 12x24 Polished Greek Thassos White Extra Marble Tile 


 The 12x24 polished Greek Thassos white extra marble tile is one of the most beautiful tiles we offer. It’s ideal for anyone who loves the pure white color of Thassos marble, but wants to capitalize on the beauty of tile in the “extra” classification – which means it has no spots or veining.


Ideal for use in flooring, backsplashes (the polish makes it easy to clean), and accent walls, this beautiful, pure white tile is fantastic for any room that requires timeless elegance without a color or pattern that will make it feel “noisy.”


 2. Polished Thassos White and Crema Marfil Basketweave Mosaic Tile

A unique, modern take on a traditional basketweave pattern, our polished Thassos white and Crema Marfil basketweave mosaic tile is a beautiful, dense-looking tile that is ideal for traditional homes.

 3/8” thick, this beautiful, intricate tile is excellent for backsplashes or flooring in small rooms, such as bathrooms and dressing rooms.

 While the crema marfil color goes well with virtually all interior spaces, we also offer ming green and Nero varieties of the same tile for homeowners, designers, or builders who prefer a slightly different tone.


 3. 2 Inch Hexagon Polished Thassos White Mosaic Tile


Featuring a hexagonal pattern in white, the 2-inch hexagon polished Thassos white mosaic tile is a lovely in-between for customers who want a traditional-looking tile with a modern twist.

 Available in 10 ¾” x 12 ¼” sheets backed by mesh, this tile is well-suited to dozens of applications, including use on an interior, lightly-trafficked floor, interior and exterior walls, and even in showers.

 For a truly unique look, line a shower in this hive-shaped tile and set off the classic colors with bright, modern fixtures and plenty of light. Durable, beautiful, and unique, this Thassos marble is sure to make any home stand out.


 4. 18 x 18 Polished Greek Thassos White Select Marble Tile 18 x 18 Thassos White Polished Tiles


Similar to the 12x24 polished white extra marble tile, our 18X18 polished Greek Thassos white select marble tile is a gorgeous addition to any home.

 Available in 3/8” thickness, this Thassos marble is simple to install and will add an impressive depth and texture to areas like bathroom floors and shower stalls. The “select” classification means this marble tile will have subtle grey and brown shadows, and some subdued gray veining.

 Ideal for use in high-traffic areas, the polish makes this tile easy to clean while the subtle color scheme means this tile will blend beautifully with any part of the home.


 5. 5/8 x 5/8 Polished Thassos White Mosaic Tile 5/8 Thassos Marble Mosaic

Offering a tighter, denser pattern than our 2-inch Hexagon polished Thassos marble tile, the 5/8 x 5/8 Polished Thassos White Mosaic Tile is a ultra-modern design that will look great in small spaces, where it can make the most impact.

3/8” thick and available in 5/8” x 5/8” squares mounted on a mesh backing, this mosaic tile is ideal for use in backsplashes, shower floors or accent walls.

For textural drama, consider adding a vertical wall of this tile to a bathroom or placing it behind a tub. Add some ceiling-mounted lights to set off the pattern and keep the rest of the bathroom simple.

Alternately, consider complimenting your polished Thassos white mosaic tile with some beautiful Thassos trim, such as our Thassos Sylvia chair trim, which stands out beautifully against tiles and mosaics.

Unique, modern, and understated enough to go with virtually everything, this beautiful and easy-to-care-for tile is ideal for all homes.

Choosing the Right Tile for Your Home

Posted by DEKO Tile on

Choosing the right tiles for your bathroom, kitchen or other home space is very important, because it will have a huge effect on how the area will look. One of the advantages at present is the fact that there are many options available so that even a small amount of research online will yield many dozens of possible patterns, colors, materials and more. The problem isn't a scarcity of products to choose from, instead, it's more an issue of having to sift through so many different tiles in search of just the right one to use. To help with this search, it's useful to step back and take in the big picture of the many different tile options available.
Marble Tiles
One of the advantages of marble tiles is simply the fact that they can look stunning. This material will possess a natural pattern, mix of color and organic design which can complement and enhance any interior room. There's a reason many of the most elegant residences and hotels use marble surfaces extensively in their interiors. This kind of material exudes luxury and style. The downside though is that this material will tend to cost more than other alternatives, so there may be some budgetary considerations that will need to be studied well before this material is chosen. This is especially true if the floor area to be covered is extensive.
Ceramic Tiles
Another option when it comes to taking care of your flooring is ceramic tile. Compared to marble, these tiles can be much easier on the budget while still offering a lovely material for kitchen or bathroom floors. Aside from its relative affordability, this material also offers the option of solid waterproofing if it has been subjected to the glazing process. This is a big deal for bathrooms especially because it means that water and moisture will not be able to penetrate into the tile and cause damage. In addition, glazed ceramic tiling tends to be fairly easy to clean because liquids and other stain-producing substances are not able to penetrate the surface layer. In many cases, all you will need to do is either sweep the tile or wipe it with a mop or cloth.
Mosaic Glass Tiles
One more alternative worth checking out is mosaic glass tile. This is another particularly beautiful material to use for flooring because you can really go all out and choose complex and multi-patterned designs to go on your kitchen or bathroom floor. There are some truly amazing looks to choose from, and this type of tile will definitely make a room more eye-catching and impressive. That said; it does have the disadvantage of providing less traction underfoot. This means that using this kind of tiling in the bathroom will require you to introduce rugs or non-slip mats so that the room doesn't become accident-prone.
