Tiles Unlimited, voted Best Tile Store in Queens, is committed to searching for and offering the latest in tile technology. We are very excited about several new lines of water jet cut mosaics. These intricate designs allow you to express your style and taste like no other tile offerings.
Mosaic art has been prevalent for centuries, adorning famous architecture all over the world. The centuries old method of mosaics entailed taking tiny pieces of stone, glass, and other materials to create pixelated, impressionistic works reminiscent of Monet. This required physical space and distance to be fully appreciated.
Water jet machines are the new “mosaic artists” giving a more intimate design to rough, faceless slabs of material. Water jet tiles are formed with high-pressure streams of water (here’s a video of the process) that allow for exact precision to cut ornate patterns that were previously impossible to achieve. Whether your style is edgy or classic or somewhere in between, water jet mosaic tiles will allow you to express your true inner aesthetic, making it all about you.
Once the mosaic tiles have been produced, they are assembled on mesh backing. The advantage of mounting the tiles on mesh is that the mosaic can be cut to different shapes and sizes, permitting customization of the final result and making it easy to cover curved surfaces such as columns, wavy dividers, chairs, rounded edges, etc. as the tiles are mounted on a flexible base.
