When working with glass tile
, the possibilities are nearly limitless. While you do have to be careful with placement due to the ease at which they scratch in some places, the appearance leaves you with no lack of design options. In addition to using them in your flooring, you can also install them as backsplashes, countertops, and accent pieces on your walls. It creates a truly luxurious look and ambiance reminiscent of an upscale lifestyle. It does require a little extra maintenance, but it’s truly worth it.
No matter what size glass tile you’re looking for, it’s definitely a possibility. Some are cut as small as one-half inch square with much larger formats available as well. Choose rectangles or squares, for a more classic look, for choose uncommon shapes in specialty tile for a truly unique look. If you like, you can even combine these tiles with other types, such as stone and metal, creating mosaics that always catch the eye.
If you’re looking for an eco-friendly flooring or building material, glass tile is a perfect option. Using only half the energy necessary to create other types of tile the same size, you can even choose recycled or reclaimed glass that will provide results just as stunning as the brand new versions. In fact, recycled glass can provide appearance options that new materials cannot. Some homeowners even create entire spaces from bits of broken glass that are fashioned into mosaics.
Durability is a bit complex when it comes to glass tile. For instance, when passed through ASTM standards, your tiles are guaranteed for use in flooring. This means that only a direct and sharp force will crack it. However, these materials do scratch and certain precautions should be taken to make sure that doesn’t happen. The most important part of the process is making sure you use a professional installation team for the installation procedure.
