Glass tile makes a beautiful accent in kitchen backsplashes, shower surrounds, and other visual focal points. Glass tile has become a popular choice with Flemington homeowners because it has a sleek, contemporary look and is very easy to clean. Whether you’re completely renovating your bathroom or just giving your kitchen a modern update, you should consider glass tile for your next project. But first, here are some tips from our team at Floor Coverings International Hillsborough:
About Glass Tile
- Glass tile is available in many sizes, shapes, and colors, so try mix-and-matching tiles to create a unique design. You could arrange them randomly, or in a stripe or checkerboard design, for example. If you want to help make your space feel more open, choose a tile in a bright color that will reflect light.
- Glass tiles are durable and easy to clean, so they’re not only beautiful, they’re functional as well. They have the advantage of resisting mold and mildew and also repelling water, so they do not require sealing like natural stone tiles. Instead, just give them a scrub with a basic cleaner and a sponge.
- One of the downsides to glass tile is the price. It is more expensive than many other types of tile, including ceramic and porcelain, which is why you may want to consider using it sparingly. For example, you might add glass tile as a decorative accent amidst a more affordable tile like ceramic, or you may choose to use it in a small area, like above your stove or sink.
- Glass tiles are very delicate before installation, so homeowners should not try to install them on their own. To ensure there are no mistakes, trust your installation to our professional team at Floor Coverings International Hillsborough.
