Pebble tiles provide a unique look. Like most mosaics, they are comprised of lots of small pieces conveniently adhered to a mesh backing material. This makes the installation possible without the mind numbing process of setting a gazillion individual stones by hand. Most tile sheets are “keyed” so the installation interlocks from sheet to sheet but still gives a nice uniform but random look. Depending on your installation, most of these tiles can be set without much need for actual tile cuts. The random patterns can be rotated and the sheet’s backer cut with a simple utility knife. Individual stones can be removed or placed to customize the fit.
