design your own mosaic tile patterndaltile mosaic tile tool
Good news here in Retro Renovation land: After a few years off the market, Daltile’s Mosaic Designer Tool is back. And more good news: The selections continue to include some of our favorite retro colors including Aqua Glow and Spa, which are also pretty easy to get as matchy matchy 4×4(ish) wall tiles including from Home Depot.

I recall that Natalie and Graham were the first among our readers to use the tool, back in 2012. They created a custom mosaic tile floor in their laundry room and tucked in a dog shower for their dogs Reelee and Maeybe, too — so cute!

Daltile’s website explains the relaunched design tool:

Our mosaic design tool allows you to use Keystones or Color Wheel Mosaics to create unique patterns, color ratios and one-of-a-kind designs.

The custom designer also lets you save designs to your computer, print, or store in a “My Projects” account. Share completed designs via email or on social media. Create your own custom, random blends. Design your own patterns with unique color ratios.

Fun to create your own mosaic tile designs

Indeed, dive in to the Designer Tool — so much fun to play with! — and you will see that it serves up tiles and mosaic design combinations based on the type of project you are working on.

Oh, and thanks to Melanie for a (different) story idea she submitted that led me to go look at the Daltile website this weekend and see that the Mosaic Design Tool was back!

    Where’d the colors go? I cannot find any of the retro colors like Spa & Aqua Glow, did they take them off that quickly?

    And just like that, the tile designer is gone. I knew it be a while before could purchase the tiles, so was expecting something like this. Shame, back to the boring and non-Mid Century Modern tile.

    By the way, I am not getting notified of replies despite checking the box.

    Thanks for the help you two, got it to generate wonderful options, saved them to the laptop, and the battery quit… Now when I go back to regenerate, no longer available. Bathroom remodels don’t seem to be easy. LOL

    Now with this pandemic tile stores are not open and add change in my life which created a deadline which never existed (end of September), then add the visualizer is no longer available, reconize having a mosaic floor is not an option. If wasn’t a wetroom (shower floor same as the rest of the bathroom), I would put in lenolium and come back to it later.

    Now on the hunt for a quick, yet enjoyable, tile floor.

    I think it still works. Let me know if you need a contact at a flooring store. I had a fantastic salesman who took the time to get me exactly what I wanted. Tile is being installed in a few weeks.
