Glass Tile / January 5, 2019 / Fleurette Theriault
The versatility of art glass tiles textures and appearance is at best very difficult to emulate on a manufacturing line. The glass artisan specializing in tiles has many glass colors and styles to choose from when creating these works of art just as a painter has myriad shades of colors on their palette. And as the application is specifically designed for there might be a little more effort involved in having tiles "made to order" but the result will truly be one-of-a-kind. To stretch your budget consider using factory glass tiles as the "field tiles" and mixing in custom art glass "accent tiles". Field tiles make up the bulk of the tiles in any project whereas accent tiles can be incorporated in much smaller quantities. Glass Art accessories such as accent tiles are the ideal solution for enhancing any room.
Mosaics: If youre more artistically inclined than the average glass tiling fan than you should consider crafting a tile mosaic. A mosaic can be a wall installation or a table top piece or even a separate art creation that you can hand on a wall somewhere in your home or give as a gift to someone. A popular thing to do over the last few years has been to make mosaic patio tables. Its fairly simple to do and all youll need is some grout and your favorite tiles. A very common question when selecting glass for a kitchen backsplash is whether it needs to be mesh backing or paper faced? This can be an easy answer or it can be a complex answer. There are two different types of glass tile that will get either one or the other.
If you are really set on using glass on your renovation and construction projects there is a way to cut down on costs and that is through the use of discount glass tile. There are a number of places where you can look for them that come with huge discounts on them and these are often due to a number of reasons. One reason for the huge discounts you can get on stock is because these tiles that you get from certain dealers have been discontinued. This does not mean however that they are of lower value or quality than other tiles that you can find at higher prices. This just means that these tiles will no longer be available to you or anybody else once the present stock is sold out.
