Mosaic Tile Flooring is perhaps the most well known type of flooring
used by homeowners today. This is because you can make your own patters,
mix and match the tiles, and install them yourself. Homeowners like
that they are able to customize the floor to their specific tastes using
Mosaic tile flooring can be laid down at random or as a pattern.
Mosaic tiles can also be used in countertops, backsplashes and on small
Mosaic Tiles Are Unique
Mosaic tiles usually come in 2×2 inch squares; you can buy them
separately or already mounted on a mesh backing. Mosaic tile flooring
come either glazed or unglazed, and are made out of either ceramic or
porcelain. You can even use old tiles you find lying around, smash them
into small pieces and create a unique pattern on, for instance, a table
Both ceramic and porcelain are durable materials. However, as with
all tiles, you do have to take care during installation of the mesh
backed variety so that the tiles don’t get cracked. If mosaic tile
flooring is laid properly, it will last quite a long time.
Versatility Of Mosaic Tiles
Mosaic flooring is hard and easy to clean, which is why it is most
often used in kitchens, bathrooms and entryways. It is also very water
and bacteria resistant, and although it doesn’t necessarily need sealing
it will better protect the grouting if you do seal it. Most commercial
bathrooms are done in mosaic tile, due to its versatility. In addition,
mosaic tiles are very affordable. That means you don’t have to break the
bank to tile your entire kitchen or bathroom! Mosaic tiles, while not
quite as hard as marble or other similar flooring, can still be hard and
cold underfoot. Many people use area rugs to take the edge off, but you
may be hesitant to do this, especially if you have a pattern that you
made yourself and are keen to show off!
Mosaic Tile Advantages
Mosaic tile is very easy to maintain. However, the tiles may trap
more dirt than other types of flooring. For this reason, you will want
to vacuum the floor first to make sure that any trapped dirt or debris
is removed. Then use a damp mop with mild household detergent to clean.
You flooring dealer may also suggest a special floor cleaner for ceramic
or porcelain. Any stains should be removed using a brush with
synthetic, non-abrasive brushes. Otherwise, you will permanently scratch

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY FOR ANY FLOORING OR CABINETS!!!
This company does not even deserve one star! They are a JOKE!! WORST ever experience with a kitchen and flooring remodel with them. Would NEVER EVER refer any one to this place. Products are crappy, had TWO bad sets of hard wood flooring, delayed work for a week and a day to get new floors, meanwhile, while still trying to live with my 2 young children in the house that is all in shambles as moving things around so floors can be is not easy!! Finally once a good batch of floors came in it took 4 days to get it laid. As for the kitchen....where do i even start?! Cabinets were ordered so horribly, that my 8 year could have done a better job! Contractors made several trips to a warehouse in Chino to get cabinets, and to still come back with the wrong sizes and colors multiple times!! Time wasted for that 5 days! Oh and the contractor that they "referred" didn't speak any English! that makes it very hard to communicate on a project. And it was only ONE guy to do a whole kitchen cabinet job alone! So, so many issues with quality of the installation of cabinets! And so many times of trying to reach out to Jared the so called manager with no care to help! Started this project on 11-14-16 and to this day my kitchen is STILL not 100% complete per the agreement that was made with this company. And the craftsmanship work is very poor quality.
I have to wonder how they are even still in business!! I really wished i would have looked at their reviews before I signed a contract with them, so for that shame on me. I hope that people see this and turn the other way from this company on to better places to door any flooring or cabinets! - By Danielle N
This was my first time using SD Flooring Center & Design. I was very happy with them. My floors were done very well and very quickly, they really look great! They did a very good job, and I would definitely recommend them to anyone.I could not be happier with my new floors. - By Catherine S
