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.
Above, Jamie used the design tool to create a bathroom floor matched to blue tile cove base, above — Frankie the Boston Terrier approves!
Two more readers who used the original Daltile Mosaic Tile Designer for their bathroom floors:
- Drew & Amy’s Daltile Aqua Glow bathroom — a retro remodel that looks like it’s always been there
- Liz and Dave’s midcentury modern bathroom remodel: Hello, salt ‘n pepper wall tile!

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!
