Eco-friendly finishing materials continue to gain in popularity. These trends include tiles and mosaics made from coconut peels. The material is natural, unique and exotic for our country. Our tips site will tell you about this tile and show you examples of its use..
Coconut tiles have many advantages:

They process the nutshell by hand, collect it from the fallen coconuts, soak it in water, then sort, dry it, grind it. Only natural ingredients are used in painting. Mosaic is glued with natural resins. As a result, a very beautiful and completely safe finish for humans is obtained, which can be used for different purposes..
Important! Coconut tiles are not as fragile as ceramic tiles and are almost impossible to break. Compared to wood, coconut shells are more resistant to scratches and other mechanical damage.
The portal wrote in detail how and where mosaics can be used in interiors. Small tiles made of coconut are no exception – they can also be used both to decorate large wall surfaces and to create panels in separate areas, as a decoration for a local area. Smooth color transitions, interesting texture and almost complete absence of seams make coconut tiles an excellent choice.
Coconut tiles and mosaics are laid simply, the process does not cause any difficulties. The only drawback of this finish is the high price – handmade tiles, made of natural material, are imported from afar, so the cost cannot be called affordable. The price of one tile measuring 30×30 centimeters can go up to 700-900 rubles. Therefore, this finishing option is still exotic and is rare, because not all homeowners can afford it..
