    Hi there Lyne and welcome to our forums. :-D

    I've stayed in a few hotels where they've used glass mosaic tiles in their bathrooms and they really look lovely. I think as long as you grout between them with a mould resistant, waterproof material then you should be OK.

    I think the glass mosaic would look great. You might make sure that your lighting will highlight them for the best effect.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your inputs. My countertop is granite and it's a mixture of beige, black, clear (quartz-like), yellow color all mixed together. My floor is the natural travertine (light beige) and my cabinets is a very light color with a hint of pink undertone. Any suggestions on the color of the mosaic?

    Thanks,
    lyne

    I'd pick out one or two of the colours from the granite that are favourites of yours and use them with clear mosaic, or mirror mosaic, tiles - should look great!! :-D Do let us see a photograph once you've completed it won't you?
