Glass Tile / January 23, 2019 / Fleurette Theriault
OK youve decided that glass tiles are perfect for your project - so where do you go from here? What are your options? A lesser known option is to explore "art glass tiles". These are made by studio glass artists in smaller lots and are generally made specifically for a client or project. Generally these tiles can be customized specifically to a clients color texture style and size preferences and even incorporate custom designs to match other motifs in the room. For example would you like your tiles to match certain fabrics a specific paint color or type of stone? Would you like a continuous wall panel or smaller accent tiles? These are the types of variation that can be specified when ordering art glass tiles.
So that when you feel suffocated with cramped space consider installing reflective glass decorative tiles to give your home a spacious feel. Use the glass tile backsplashes to accentuate a decoration or liven up the rooms in your home. With the wide array of colors shapes and designs available you can make your home look brighter. For an eclectic and contemporary feel accentuate your walls with glass mosaic backsplashes. Turn your bathroom walls into relaxing shades of blue or light lavender. Alternatively transform your bathroom mirror into a piece of art with a backdrop that is eye-catching and at the same refreshing. Improve your fireplace with these glass tiles.
Usually they are available mesh mounted on a fiberglass sheet or as field tiles such as subway 3"x6" 4"x4" 6"x6" and even 12"x12". Stained clear glass tiles are made of clear/translucent glass that are stained during its manufacturing process and then cut into multiple pieces. In this case you can see all the way through it even if it has a dark stain color and that is the reason they are not mesh-backed otherwise you would see the mesh through the glass even after installed. Instead they are mounted on clear-faced or paper-faced sheet. Plain or non-colored clear glass tiles are made of clear/translucent glass and do not have color in it. Though the word "plain" is used to describe these types of tiles they are extremely elegant and easy to work with if you want to give a special "touch" to a kitchen backsplash bathroom and shower or swimming pool.
