Taking Advantage of the Unique Characteristics of Glass Tile

Last updated 5 years ago


Whether it’s a bathroom wall or a kitchen backsplash, glass tile can brighten up any room. Here are some fascinating characteristics that make glass tile an amazing design feature:


Glass is available in a variety of vibrant colors. You can use one color or mix and match to create a beautiful and unique pattern. Moreover, glass is an excellent reflector of light, so glass tiles will illuminate your home with minimal lighting. 



Glass tiles are frost-proof, resistant to fading and discoloration, and do not easily stain. They can be susceptible to cracking or chipping, but if the glass tile is installed correctly, this is not a problem. As a result, glass tile is great for a variety of applications, such as a kitchen backslash or spa or pool tile.

Low Maintenance

Glass tiles are very easy to clean. You can wipe them down with a basic glass cleaner and a cloth. They do not absorb water or stain like some natural stone, so you can clean worry-free.


Beyond the plethora of colors, glass tile is also available in a different variety of shapes, sizes, textures, finishes, and thicknesses. While square is the most common shape, you can try rectangles and polygons to add a creative edge. The finish of the tile can also make a dramatic difference. Glossy finishes make the tile appear luminescent, which is great for spas or pools. Etched finishes create a more subtle depth of color, which makes them ideal for residential use.
