Glass Tile & Mosaics can be used for backsplash tile, bathroom tile, shower accent tile. Most glass has recycled content and is LEED certified.
Glass tile is not only beautiful to look at, it's also quite versatile. The Romans were known to use mosaic tiles all over their empire to create a feeling of home, and to add religious, pictorial and decorative significance to rooms of their homes. So if you'd like to do as the Roman's did, get yourself some tiles. Whether you're looking to retile your bathroom, make a crafty project, or add a little pizzazz to your kitchen, with glass tile, it's all possible.
Here are five different ways you can put glass tiling to work in your home:
This first place to use glass tile is possibly the most obvious: kitchen floors. There are hundreds, if not thousands of different colors and styles of glass tiling. Using mosaic tiles as kitchen floors can add a punch of color and flair to your otherwise drab cooking space. Tile flooring is ideal for the kitchen because it's easy to clean and is extremely durable.
Kitchen Wall Backsplash:
If the flooring project is too ambitious for you, or you just don't want such a busy pattern, you should consider using it on countertops. Glass tiling is perfect to use on the walls behind kitchen countertops. Using colorful glass tiles as a backsplash can really accentuate your cabinets and provide and easy to clean surface for the walls of your kitchen?a place that is notorious for getting splashed and stained.
Glass tile is gorgeous in bathrooms. Using cool blue/green colors against white fixtures can have an incredibly pleasing effect on the eye. You can opt to tile the entire wall space or just the areas around the tub and sink. Whatever you decide, it's guaranteed to look phenomenal.
Using tile on the walls in places besides the bathroom and kitchen has really started to take off over the last few years. Glass tiling as a wall covering looks ultra modern and hip. Generally, people have just tried it on accent walls and then chose a coordinating paint color to go with it, but if you're feeling ambitious (and the room's size warrants it) just go ahead and add glass tiles to the whole room.
If you're more artistically inclined than the average glass tiling fan, than you should consider crafting a tile mosaic. A mosaic can be a wall installation, or a table top piece, or even a separate art creation that you can hand on a wall somewhere in your home, or give as a gift to someone. A popular thing to do over the last few years has been to make mosaic patio tables. It's fairly simple to do and all you'll need is some grout and your favorite tiles.
Al in all, glass tiles are perfect to use in and around the house. Whether it's the kitchen, bathroom, living room, or on an artsy project, glass tiles are the perfect material to work with.
