These days, remote work is becoming more and more common. This can make your work much more convenient, but it also means you’ll need adequate workspace in your home. One of the quickest ways to upgrade your home office is to install a tiled floor. Mosaic tiles come in all sorts of patterns, styles and colors to suit any personality or setting. It is also incredibly durable and easy to maintain. Most importantly, create that classic “office” environment to help you focus and stay productive. But the almost infinite variety of tiles means you’ll have to choose the one that best suits your specific needs. Here are some factors you will need to consider when choosing the right tiled floor for your home office. 



The mosaics can be made with various materials, including: 

Each has its advantages and disadvantages. For example, glass tile is remarkably resistant to stains, but it cracks and splinters more easily than other materials. Granite and marble are much sturdier, but they may not be as affordable.

The best material for you will depend on the look you are looking for, the budget you have to work with and how you will use the room. That said, the most common options are usually porcelain or ceramic.


The color of the tiles should complement the rest of the room, so the walls, ceiling, furniture and decorations will influence the color that best suits your needs. Some colors can also affect your mood. For example, the calming effect of blue tiles could help you if you have a very stressful job, while the uplifting nature of red could give you energy. But since your tiled floor will be more difficult to change than the color of the walls or furniture, you may want to select neutral tones and build the rest of your color scheme around them. In fact, most offices are designed in shades of light brown, gray, white and navy blue. 


Tiles can look old-fashioned, modern, elegant, or exotic. They can be simple or patterned, and the options for a pattern are seemingly limitless. Mosaic tiles are a very practical flooring option, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be beautiful, elegant, or stylish.

As with color, you’ll want tiles that match the rest of your decor. A contemporary home office usually looks good with more modern tile styles. On the other hand, an old school office will look better with the classic look of marble or glossy porcelain. 


“Abrasion resistance” is a measure of how well the tiles will hold sand, sand and friction without getting scratched or worn. Porcelain and unglazed ceramic, for example, generally have a high abrasion resistance. Glazed ceramic and glass tiles have much lower strength.

If your home office is going to be busy, consider opting for tiles with a higher degree of abrasion resistance. Pro tip: No matter which mosaic tiles you choose, a rug or rug is probably your best friend. Office chairs with wheels can scratch any type of floor. 


Underfloor heating is always a pleasure. Whether you prefer to wear underpants or pads with bare feet, a heated floor will keep your feet nice and toasty. And while most tiles are suitable for underfloor heating, not all tiles are equally efficient. If you plan to heat your home office floor, be sure to use tiles and adhesives that don’t clash with your heating system.


The right tiled floor will make your home office look great. Plus, it’s one of the more practical flooring options around. It is durable, easy to clean and easy to maintain. And with so many options to choose from, there’s sure to be a style that works for you.
