    I would like to know an approximate price to install a complex mosaic pattern such as the one behind the new president Richard Walters. Thanks

      Hi Sherri! We’d love to customize a mosaic like this one for you. Unfortunately, it’s hard for us to give you a price on the installation as that depends on your contractor. Where do you live? You might be near one of our showrooms who can guide you through the process and recommend a great installer in your area. What we recommend with a custom mosaic like the one you’re interested in is that you order our Made to Measure service. This service will ensure that the colors and pattern you select align perfectly with your space and that your installer doesn’t have to do much cutting or guesswork on the job.
