Why a Glass Tile Mosaic Makes the Perfect Backsplash

Last updated 6 years ago

Take your kitchen design to the next level with glass tile. This recycled material is the perfect component for a mosaic backsplash, and offers homeowners the following advantages:

Versatility: Glass tiles offer a wide range of visual versatility for creative home decorators. A limitless color spectrum and light reflective qualities help make glass tile mosaics stand out. In addition, a variety of tile shapes allow homeowners to think outside the box when designing their mosaic. Some tiles even include complex decorative surfaces. 

Low Maintenance Requirements: Durable glass tiles are long-lasting and easy to maintain. Their naturally nonporous surface makes them a cinch to clean, so they are a natural choice for a kitchen backsplash. In addition, glass tiles offer greater mold resistance than their ceramic counterparts.

Easy Installation: Creating your own mosaic masterpiece is a fairly simple process. You can plot out the exact design and placement of the glass tiles by measuring the space where your backsplash will be mounted. Be sure to add 1/8 inches between tiles to account for grout lines. Mix and apply mortar to the designated surface, and tackle small sections at a time to build confidence. Wait for the mortar and tiles to set before applying the grout. 

Creative Opportunities: A colorful backsplash can easily become the focal point of a kitchen. Use the broad spectrum of available tile colors to set a design motif for your kitchen. A mixture of blue, green, and white tiles is the perfect backdrop for a Mediterranean theme. Homeowners can also go with a basic two-tone color scheme, which is perfect for decorators matching a tile mosaic to existing kitchen décor.
