Home renovation projects are as exciting as they can be draining on energy – and finances. From planning the color palette to coordinating even the most minor details, new homeowners get both excited and nervous about home renovation. Making the right choice of high-quality, long-lasting materials and appliances, as well as choosing timeless designs that will outlast changing trends, will ensure that the renovations will endure for years to come. Renovations can also add value to the home if you ever decide to sell. Chady Tawil, CEO of handcrafted mosaic company Mozaico, shares his advice on how to incorporate mosaics into your home for value-boosting results.
Invest in the Bathroom and Kitchen
The bathroom and kitchen are essential rooms to consider when renovating your home. For this reason, they often tend to require the most investment. Appliances, tiles, functional planning – all of that has to be taken into account when remodeling these spaces. Due to their unparalleled versatility and durability, mosaics are one of the most trusted design choices to adorn the floors and walls of bathrooms and kitchens.
“Out of all house renovations, bathrooms and kitchens really stand out in terms of return on investment. On average, kitchens and bathrooms offer a return on investment of over 70% if and when you decide to sell your home. By adding unique mosaic art to one or both of these spaces, you can increase the value even more, as mosaics are made of durable materials and are an eternally timeless design option that not only protects the walls or floors, but they also create a vibrant focal point for any interior space,” shares Tawil.
Better Protect Your Home
Some areas in our homes experience particularly heavy foot traffic – think lobbies, hallways, and lounge spaces. In these rooms, ensure you choose flooring materials that will last a lifetime while looking as new as ever. Mosaic floors are a solution to that challenge.
“One of the most important advantages of mosaic flooring is the materials it is made from. Assembled from hand-cut natural marble, mosaic art can withstand decades, or even centuries, of wear and tear, which makes it the perfect fit for spaces that have the heaviest foot traffic, whether in homes, hotels, or commercial spaces,” continues Tawil.
Mosaic Patio for Your Pool
A pool doesn’t always add value to a home. It must be well-planned, well-constructed, and up to modern standards. Pools can offer extra value if they involve green space in the garden without the pool eating up all of that space. If you do have a pool at home, it is important to make the most out of the design so that it stands out to potential buyers.
“Patio pools are great in warmer climates. If your home is located in a neighborhood where many other homes also have pools, adding mosaic art to your pool is an excellent way to make it stand out. Apart from the aesthetically pleasing effects, mosaic is the most durable material for pools. Unlike plaster, mosaic tile art is not porous and does not allow for any algal growth on the surface of the pool, plus it offers the simplest repairs. Not only that, but fixing a damaged piece only requires you to extract that specific piece then replace it, rather than removing a whole chunk of the surface just to substitute it with another,” concludes Tawil.
