Freshwater and saltwater mother-of-pearl

Our Siminetti collection includes 14 freshwater and five saltwater mother-of-pearl mosaic tile designs. With a substantial nacre layer, our freshwater mother-of-pearl exudes a notable lustre and sheen. On the other hand, saltwater mother-of-pearl showcases a higher lustre and harnesses a more formal appearance. The freshwater version boasts a diverse array of colour variations without the blue or grey undertones, which are typically seen in saltwater mother-of-pearl.

Why choose mother-of-pearl?

Opting for mother-of-pearl for your project opens up a world of benefits. Here are some of them:

  • Durability: mother-of-pearl is a durable material that can withstand wear and tear

  • Lustrous coating: it has a coating that far surpasses the look you can achieve with glass tiles, for example

  • Luxury finish: mother-of-pearl can be used for modern mosaic tiles to instantly enhance an area with a luxury finish

How to choose the perfect mosaic tile

Picking the right mother-of-pearl mosaic tile for your project warrants careful consideration of several factors. The design, colour and size of the tiles all play a significant role in achieving the desired finish.

Each colour, for example, carries its own visual appeal and emotional impact, making the selection of the right shades crucial. Moreover, the tile size can significantly influence the overall design, the work’s intricacy and the level of detail that can be achieved. If you take these factors into account, you can ensure your mosaic tile selection perfectly aligns with your project’s aesthetic and functional needs.

Installation advice for mosaic tiles

A smooth and successful mosaic tile installation process depends on using correct techniques and materials. To start, we recommend using a white mosaic adhesive for mother-of-pearl tiles. This will not alter the tonal colour once installed, ensuring your tiles retain their original colour and lustre. When it comes to cutting the tiles, a diamond disc will be ideal. This tool ensures a smoother cut, enhancing the overall appearance and fit of your mosaic tiles.

Making the right choice

We offer a unique blend of luxury, elegance and sustainability with our mother-of-pearl mosaic tile collections. However, making the right choice necessitates careful consideration. When sourced from the right supplier, these tiles are highly versatile, suitable for a variety of applications, and offer effortless cleaning and maintenance.

From design and colour to using the appropriate adhesives and cutting methods, every decision plays a crucial role in the final outcome. But with the right choices, you can be confident of a luxurious finish that not only looks stunning but also stands the test of time.

Offering a unique blend

Our mother-of-pearl mosaic tiles offer a unique blend of luxury, elegance and sustainability. With their distinctive shimmer, unique designs and if you choose eco-friendly sourcing (our Siminetti collections), they are an excellent choice for high-end projects. Whether you’re a building developer looking to make a statement or a homeowner seeking to add a touch of luxury to your space, these tiles offer a versatile, durable and sustainable solution.
