If you don't have the time -- or the patience -- to go traipsing from tile showroom to tile showroom, check out Mosaic Tile Market. The Scotts Valley-based company is strictly online -- and to make the shopping even more appealing, their wall and floor tile products are not only colorful and stylish, they're economical.
Mosaic Tile Market sells ceramic/porcelain, cork, glass, and metal tile, and soon will add polished pebble mosaic tile to their selection. We especially like the four-year old company's signature ModWalls brand. The 30+ glass tile blends are inspired by modern architecture and design. They're a little hip, a little retro.
You can also order samples to try out before you make a big commitment.
