Glass Tile / January 22, 2019 / Odette Pinneau
Although the definition of clear/translucent glass is "allowing light to pass through partially or diffusely" it doesnt mean that all clear glass tiles are transparent in a way that you can see for example an object or your hand behind it. Clear glass is the material used to make these tiles but they can have color or not. There are basically three types of clear glass tiles: back colored stained and plain or non-colored. Back colored clear glass mosaic tiles are by far the most popular in the market. The tiles are made of clear/translucent glass usually from 4mm to 8mm thick and they receive a coating/painting on the back during manufacturing which is what gives the color to the tile.
For the past five years I have witnessed an unprecedented increase in the use of glass tile mosaics in residential and commercial applications. As with many other high end popular products cheaper knock-offs have quickly flooded the market. Unsuspecting consumers purchase these attractive-looking cheap tiles only to become frustrated months later when they learn the investment in their home is not only worthless but also costly. When a glass tile installation or product fails homeowners are left with expensive tear-outs and repairs. To the end user and many untrained contractors the quality differences may seem subtle but these distinctions have a major impact on the final appearance and durability of the project.
There are many colors and shades that would help you to increase the beauty of your house. You would find these glass tiles of various shades. You can find dark shades in this glass tile. These glass tiles are available in various sizes. Some these glass tiles are available in slab form. These slab form is used for countertops. These glasses are made up of marble or granite. It is the tile that shines in the dark. It is the only tile that shines in the dark. These tiles take light from the surrounding environment. In dark it shines like a star in the sky. Thus these tiles are used in the bathrooms or they can be used in the in the childrens room or it can be used for those who need light in the night.
