The brilliance of glass tile

Hey there, tile lover! If you're on the hunt for a versatile tile that adds a touch of magic to your space, you would be remiss not to consider glass tile. It's like the jewel of the tiling world—unique, enchanting, & oh-so-versatile.

Glass tile comes in various finishes, each with its own charm. There's the glossy, fully translucent variety that reveals a fabulous depth when illuminated. Then, there's the velvety matte finish, offering a subtle elegance that's perfect for understated sophistication. If you're looking to infuse a touch of opulence, consider a metallic finish that lends a luminescent quality akin to glistening pearls. And don't even get us started on the iridescent finish—it's like having a mini light show right on your walls or backsplash!

Aesthetics aside, why pick glass over the classic ceramic or natural stone? Well, first off, it's a breeze to clean. No more scrubbing away at textured surfaces—all it takes is a quick wipe & you're golden! Plus, it's non-porous, so it won't absorb moisture, making it a superstar in wet or stain-prone areas like showers, kitchen backsplashes, & pool surrounds.

Glass tile is also impressively durable. It may surprise you, but many glass tiles are strong enough to be installed on floors well as walls. Its resistance to the outdoor elements, due to that lack of porosity, makes glass suitable for use in exterior spaces, too. And glass tile can go where ceramic, natural stone, & certain porcelains cannot, like an outdoor kitchen backsplash, around your fire pit, and even the floor of your jacuzzi!

Glass can often be an eco-conscious choice as many glass tiles are made from recycled glass. Additionally, by selecting glass, you're selecting a material known for its exceptional durability & longevity, meaning you'll contribute to less waste in the future. Embrace sustainability without compromising on style & functionality with stunning recycled glass mosaics.

As interior designers, we're smitten with glass tile for its ability to play with light. A translucent material with visible depth, glass tile creates an ethereal glow that can transform any space into a luminous sanctuary. Plus, its versatility means you can get uber-creative with patterns, colors, & mosaics, adding an artistic touch to your design.So, if you're after a tile that's as practical as it is stunning, give glass a whirl!
