In our section of reforms today we bring you a new article on materials, specifically the tile mesh, a material generally associated with the coating of bathrooms and swimming pools and, therefore, also associated with the color blue. However, the world of interior design, in its eagerness to innovate, has been offering new shapes, colors and designs that expand its possibilities and the context in which to use it.
The ceramic mosaic is made up of small geometric pieces inserted on a mesh to form a pattern. They can range from a simple regular and uniform pattern to the most varied organic designs.
The process of intercalation of the pieces is carried out industrially, inserting them in a determined and permanent position on the mesh. For our part, we only have to prepare the support surface with the corresponding mortar, superimpose the mesh by adhering it to it and cover it with grout to seal the joints. A much simpler process that has opened up a world of design possibilities.
By industrializing its manufacture, digital design has advanced, creating all kinds of drawings from geometric patterns that, on a large scale, make up murals with all kinds of prints.
In the same way that the most original patterns have been created, with hexagonal or round shapes among many others, technology has overcome its barriers creating new 3D designs with organic shapes, which has been a revolution in terms of aesthetics, and can be used in many decorative styles.
As we mentioned, tile meshes are often relegated to cladding areas in contact with water, but thanks to advances in design and technology, their applications have opened up to a wide range of contexts. Beyond the cladding of showers and kitchen fronts, we can see how they are frequently used in the decoration of restaurants, showrooms and hotels, as cladding for industrial design objects and works of art, or as wall decoration in living rooms and bedrooms, among other spaces that have nothing to do with their original use.
This coating has also established itself as a luxury finish; metallic finishes are some of the most surprising that we can find applied in this type of mosaic, overcoming the barrier of corrosion with metals such as nickel or stainless steel, which offer us designs of great beauty and resistance. We can also find original combinations of ceramic tesserae interspersed with other colored glass that create very suggestive combinations.
And what do you think about all that tile meshes have to offer? While you think about it, we leave you more with images that will help you decide.
