Earlier this week, we brought you the first in our three part series talking about the process for commissioning a custom designed mosaic floor. Step One detailed what initial discussions consist of and some of the questions to think about regarding your new piece of art. Today, we are going to look at Step Two, which is one of our favorite parts of the process: design!
Step Two: Designing your Mosaic
This is typically the most time consuming part of the process. You may come to us knowing exactly what mosaic design you want, or you may only have a few general ideas. Either way is great! We will talk about your design ideas and how they might be translated into a mosaic, based on factors like your preferred materials, location, and intricacy.
If you feel unsure of where to begin, don't worry - we are here to help! We will ask you about your decor aesthetic, likes and dislikes, and any initial ideas you have. Next, we work on a few design options for you. These might be in the form of sketches, mood boards, or painting. We can work back and forth to tweak the design to get it exactly how you want it. If you send us a photo of your space, we can even create a mock up of how the mosaic will look in the actual space!
Once you are happy with the design, we move on to the final phase: piecing your one of a kind mosaic. This will be covered in the third and final part of our series. Let us know your questions in the comments section, or contact us for more information.
